Spring 2019

His Eminency Ngawang Migyur and the Lehns invested more than 24 years and over $1.9 million to find, purchase, design, permit, develop, maintain, and market Greenness before it was lost to the still uncompensated landslide caused by the City of Edmonds' hidden storm water infiltration system (see Epilogues I and II), the Great Recession, lots 2, 3, and 4’s repossessions, and Rinpoche’s nearly fatal stroke, painful and long lasting paralysis, and recent death. To recover part of our losses, Green Tara incorporated’s (Gti’s) ~7,000 SF and the Lehns' lot 1 and residence are now for sale and will soon be listed later this spring.  


GTi’s ~ 7,000 SF (shaded green and labeled "1B/2A" above) is considered a "key" because it can be either added to lot 1 or 2 and would be needed to subdivide lot 2 into 2 lots. GTi obtained the City of Edmonds' Preliminary Short Plat Approval for the subdivision and may be willing to help its buyer obtain the City's final approval. GTi is currently offering to sell its ~ 7,000 SF for $200,000 plus view protections and a perpetual easement for the owners of Lot 1 to occasionally use and enjoy its mid-level path and Fire Pit Point.


Lot 1 is also considered a "key" for it would be needed to realize the possibility of combining Greenness with d'Elaine Johnson's large estate on the top of the extraordinary coastal promontory it shares with lot 1.  The Lehns plan to list lot 1 and their recently updated Early Northwest Modernist House later this spring for $1 million. To view before and after slide shows of the house and property see - To view slide shows of Greenness' neighborhood context, street and site improvements, and proposed common areas, see -


Undeveloped view lots 2, 3, and 4 are currently owned by Bert Bradley, who wants to sell all three of them together at the same time. If interested in purchasing Bert's properties, please contact him directly at or 206-915-2535. To learn more about the possibility of adding d'Elaine Johnson's estate to Greenness and to purchasing the Lehns' and GTi's properties, please contact Phillip Lehn at or 425-745-8949.
