It's located within two blocks of the Kitsap County Administrative Offices and Court House; and is a fifteen-minute drive or ferry ride from Bremerton. It makes a great home base while you take care of legal matters, explore Puget Sound, visit family and friends, go house hunting, and/or transition to a new job. Immerse yourself in the beauty of nature on Puget Sound, yet be close to the amenities of larger cities.
Centrally located for both work and play, this three-bedroom Port Orchard house is perfect for temporary housing needs. The views from every room are enhanced by the beauty of nature, creating a sense of serenity: The Olympic Mountains, the water, the surrounding, a lush green belt in the private canyon behind the house. For your added comfort, the house has a huge patio with outdoor seating, and an expansive lawn. A deck off the kitchen enhances quiet observation of wild life while you enjoy a cup of coffee.
The family style kitchen is fully equipped with pots and pans, dishes, flatware, toaster, coffee pot, microwave, stove, dishwasher, and a kitchen table for four with a view! The dining room table will easily accommodate six. China, stemware, and candles are available for special occasions.

The house has three bedrooms. The master bedroom has a queen size bed. There is a double size bed and a walk-in closet in the second bedroom.

Grocery stores, salons, gyms, restaurants, movie and live theaters and even a 24 hour Urgent Care are located with two miles of the house so you don’t have to go far for anything you might need. McCormick Woods Golf Course, Trophy Lake Golf and Casting Club, and the Gold Mountain Golf Course are all within a six mile radius.
Enjoy a meal, entertainment, or wedding reception at the McCormick Woods Clubhouse Restaurant and Bar, or drive down the Port Orchard waterfront for dinner at the Light House or Amy’s on the Bay.

Our Port Orchard home is a keeper! When we are not working on a home, in a yard, or on the computer, we are enjoying grandchildren, traveling, reading,walking with friends or 'workng out' at the YMCA.
Why the Owner Chose Port Orchard:
We love the ambience, especially the fresh air, forests, clear skies and the natural beauty of the Puget Sound area. It is a great place to take a deep breath, relax,enjoy nature, and explore the wealth of outdoor activities. Being removed from the huslte and bustle of major cities, yet still having easy access to Seattle and other favorites like Gig Harbor, Silverspring, Tacoma, and British Columbia has been an important consideration for us.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
One chief advantage of staying here is the price: It is very inexpensive for what you get. Also, access to downtown Seattle via the ferry is simple, yet pleasurable with fantasstic scenery along the way. Best of all the house is clean, comfortable, well equipped and very peaceful.
