Premier Property

If you collect rare and unique objects, require exceptional experiences, then this property will appeal to you. A distinctive Mediterranean Revival with Moorish design influence reflects a special type of Tacoma wealth on Day Island. Built for O.V. Snyder, this beautifully maintained and restored to present-day standards by every owner since 1935 to represent and achieve the finest level of pride. The water views and circular floorplan were developed to showcase the artisan Malibu tile solarium that doubles as a dance floor featuring a working fountain enveloped with architect specified custom wrought iron rail and ceiling light to provide natural light.

A Modern lover will approve the Cornice detail one of a kind, custom designed light fixtures specified by the architect Russell, Lance & Muri, to compliment the wrought iron that is compatible with today’s lifestyle. Each bedroom has private access to a bath to create 3 en-suite privileges two on main floor, one up. Upstairs offers a large amusement/media room with private entertaining size terrace to enjoy the sunsets, Fox Island and lovely exposure of the Southern Narrows waterway. Upstairs bedroom has a twin terrace overlooking the Olympic Mountains and Northerly Narrows waterway and Bridge.

Home has been properly updated with electrical and plumbing while maintaining the original characteristics and high integrity. This Day Island property offers an un-heard frontage and back line of 120 feet with access from the East and the West for room to grow by adding guest quarters and a swimming pool if so desired.
