The ‘Winslow Core’ neighborhood is a short stroll and a 35 minute ferry ride to downtown Seattle, so it is the most pedestrian friendly area on Bainbridge. It is also home to the largest concentration of Islanders. Living in Winslow means easy commuting during the week, leisurely walks to the bakery on the weekend, and quick trips to the library or market.
The Sunrise Drive area is the beautiful northeastern most part of Bainbridge Island, just north of Rolling Bay and east of Madison Ave. This gorgeous waterfront neighborhood is highly sought after because of the stunning sunrises (hence the name) and lively views of the Puget Sound shipping lanes, Cascade Mountains, downtown Seattle and Mt. Rainier. Close proximity to the Agate Pass bridge and easy access to the ferry are an added bonus.
Rolling Bay, a popular neighborhood on Bainbridge Island, is the proposed site for a new eco-friendly development “Sunshine Square.” This centrally located neighborhood will provide “residents the opportunity to live and work in an exceptionally-designed development in an historic part of the island”.
