Location: Bainbridge Island, Wash.
The Skinny: With a superb location on Puget Sound, views of the Seattle skyline and Mt. Rainier, and 7,500-square-feet of quality construction, it's a wonder that the listing broker found it necessary to cite the Hamptons in the brokerbabble for this six-bedroom island estate. Still, the similarities are there, from the shingles to the sisal rugs, it does have the casual chic feel of a Hamptons beach house. Elegant, mature landscaping and a separate guest house make the case for the very "south of the highway" price tag of $8.5M. Perhaps the Hamptons references are aimed at wooing an East Coast tech exec making the move to Seattle.
