Extraordinary Has a New Address: New Bainbridge Island Flagship Branch

I am proud to share that Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty has opened a new Bainbridge Island branch called the “Island Living Gallery” at 240 Winslow Way East. Occupying approximately one half of the Old Hardware Store – a nostalgic icon of Bainbridge Island heritage built in 1948 – our global real estate brand is now poised for growth. RSIR will collaborate with the adjoining restaurant and bar Bruciato, operated by famed chef and Bainbridge Island resident Brendan McGill of Hitchcock, which is set to open by the end of the year. This dynamic lifestyle center at the heart of Winslow has resurrected an important landmark building which has stood vacant for more than five years.

“This thoughtful revitalization of an important building is a testament to our commitment to Bainbridge Island and to all of Kitsap County that we serve – it’s living history,” said Jennifer Johnsen Cameron, Vice President of Brand Development and new Branch Manager for Bainbridge Island.

“The Old Hardware Store was a center point for Bainbridge Islanders for decades. We share that same spirit today and seek to be a meaningful part of this community for many years to come.”

Our new 4,000-SF+ facility is a celebration of both old and new. The original structure features exposed timbers, a barrel ceiling and refinished concrete floors while state-of-the-art technology by Wipliance includes large-format video screens, projectors and entertainment systems ensures the venue can quickly transform from brokerage office by day to a multi-media venue for special events and promotions by night. Architectural upgrades include a dynamic folding door system on Winslow Way that creates an indoor/outdoor experience. Artisan touches include recycled historical materials, the hinges that adorn the conference room were discovered in the old Transmitter Building on Bainbridge, a space used for codebreakering during WWII which was built in the same time period as the old hardware store. Other artisan touches which compliment the space include custom metalwork by local craftsman Jeremy Loerch. A participant in First Friday Artwalk, the showroom will include works by The Island Gallery and floor coverings by Island Ambiance.

A public grand opening celebration will take place in the New Year. Please contact me directly if you would like to join in the festivities!
