“Gone with the Wind” estate for sale in Olalla

March 24th, 2014 by Tad Sooter

Olalla might not be an obvious place to live out a secret “Gone with the Wind” fantasy. But for just under $2 million you can live every day like Rhett and Scarlett in South Kitsap.

A Gone with the Wind-themed wedding venue and rental house went on the market recently. The 10-acre property, located east of Highway 16 off Stevens Road, includes a southern-style mansion and guest cottage. The home was built in 2009.

Owner Joe Scolari said he bought the property in a foreclosure sale and started the themed rental business, which has been well received. The venue has reservations as far out as December. The business grossed $81,000 in the fourth quarter of 2013, according to the Commercial Brokers Association listing.

“We’ve had an overwhelming response,” Scolari said.
