Classic Denny Blaine Mansion Gets New Home On Bainbridge

A mansion that has called Denny Blaine Park home since the 1923 has gotten a new address after almost a century – Bainbridge Island. The 400-ton brick home was loaded onto a barge on Wednesday evening and made an overnight journey through Lake Washington, the Ship Canal, and finally the Ballard Locks before arriving on Bainbridge on Thursday night. According to King 5, the home’s new owners, Mary Rain and her husband, stumbled across the property on the website for Nickels Brothers, a company that specializes in “recycled” homes and house moving, and purchased it for $850,000 – including delivery.

A Nickels Brothers spokesperson told King 5 that the home’s previous owners planned to build a new house on the Denny Blaine site, but did not want to see the historic home demolished. The sale to the Rain family allowed the home to be preserved, and the spokesperson said nearly 200 trees’ worth of wood was saved from the landfill.

Seattle Designer Gives Her Tudor a Makeover

When Seattle Designer Judy Tall finalized her divorce, she packed up her belongings in Mercer Island and began the move to her newly purchased Tudor in Denny Blaine. According to the Seattle Times, she fell in love with the neighborhood and her master bedroom with an abundance of natural light, but wasn’t 100% sold on the rest of the place. She waited a year before remodeling, and says that “you have to know how you live in a house, and what works and what doesn’t.”

Before Tall became an interior designer she was an acupuncturist, and tries to brings elements of healing into play with her design concepts. She told the Times that whether you’re moving into a new space, or someone recently moved out or in, there are several emotions that come into play when redesigning or remodeling your home. Tall said that a large portion of her clientele chooses to remodel because they’re going through a life transition, and that’s just what she was going through when she decided to redo her home in Denny Blaine. From her choice in tranquil paint colors, to the picture rail below the coved ceiling, Tall tried to make each and every room in the place more cozy and comfortable for her to live in. She believes that every change serves a purpose, and should bring great joy to a living space. For more information about her Tudor design, visit the Seattle Times.
