About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 13)

The custom designed and built home speaks of the sea, seafaring and life at the beach. The formal entry boasts of a free standing brass binnacle; a perfect welcome to your coastal getaway. Antique ship portholes serve as windows throughout the home. The spacious 6000 sq. foot interior has a gourmet kitchen, formal and informal dining rooms and window seats.

All of the coastal inspired rooms are spacious with waterfront views. The master suite includes a gas fireplace, sitting area, private balcony and a spacious bathroom with window seats for tranquility and relaxation. On the main floor is a bedroom with an adjoining full bathroom. This room has easy access to the kitchen, the living and dining areas and to the outside deck and water views. Downstairs there are two bedrooms, an informal living area with large screen tv, a pool room and spacious bathroom.

The large formal dining room has a custom box beam ceiling, ample waterfront seating and side buffet; perfect for feasts and special occasions with family and friends. A second informal waterfront dining area is off the kitchen and is ideal for a morning cup, warm baked goods and reading while taking in the view from the window seats. The kitchen displays its coastal charm with a rustic butchers block, and wood burning stove, commercial grade Vulcan range, and sub-zero refrigerator. Nestled within the island is an ice maker and at the sink a boiling water tap; perfectly set for inspired chilled libations or a morning cup.

The deck takes full advantage of the Hood Canal and mountain views, is adjoined by a hot tub and overlooks the manicured lawn and flowering hedges. A charming walking path romantically winds down to a private beach known for its flourishing sea life, stunning vistas and sand dollars galore.

This stunning waterfront home sets on two and a half acres. It provides quiet, privacy and magnificent vistas for the pleasure of its guests.

Absolutely perfect for our multigenerational family! A space for everyone!

  • 5 of 5

What. a great place! We had wonderful indoor and outdoor activities with ping pong and pool tournaments, quiet puzzle time, game tables, not to mention the beach and water activities with the great view and BBQ from the deck as well as the hot tub! we had everything we needed in the big kitchen to serve 12 to 23 family members for various themed meals. Holly and Don were great hosts, we truly felt at home. We had a wonderful, relaxing time from Thursday till Tuesday. I just talked to the youngest grandson and asked him his favorite parts of the place, he said "the pool room, ping pong but most of all the beach and the water".The kids went clamming and some actually ate them for the first time! Cousins who had never met bonded and made their parents promise "sleep overs" in the near future. We took lots of pictures and the memories will be shared for years to come.

Thank you Holly and Don for the experience we will always treasure😍

Amazing property, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a family get-together over the 4th of July holiday at this house and it didn't disappoint. Everything was perfectly clean, it was well stocked in the kitchen and bathrooms, and was incredibly spacious and well laid out. Sleeping arrangements were no problem with multiple families/kids. The gas grill and the hot tub were both nice additions to the property.

Location was everything here. Note that the private beach access is a bit of a hike down a pretty steep hill. It's probably about 100 feet but going back up can be tough if you have anyone in your group that has a difficult time walking up/down hills. Once you are on the beach it is spectacular. We dug for clams every morning, hunted seashells (the beach is littered with them), made a fire in the evenings, and were able to take nice long walks along the coast. There are no waves to speak of and even in the morning low tide the water is about ankle deep with the drop off pretty far out so we felt good about letting younger children play out there unsupervised. We didn't see anyone else on the beach the entire time we were there so it is very private and secluded.

If you plan on spending time on the beach then I recommend bringing some folding lawn chairs. The outdoor furniture on the patio provides plenty of seating but the chairs are regular patio furniture chairs so not something I'd want to carry back/forth to the beach. Don't worry about bringing firewood as there is a lot of driftwood on the beach that you can use for burning. Bring some water shoes or sandals as it's tough to go barefoot on the beach as it is pretty rocky with lots of sharp shells and barnacles.

The owners stay in a separate house on the property and are very quiet but available if you need anything. They seemed like wonderful people and we actually enjoyed it when one of their super friendly dogs got out and hung out with us in the back yard. In fact we would have been totally fine with the dogs being out all the time while we were there because they were so friendly.

This is a house and location that I will visit again in the near future.
