About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

You will think you’re in Italy! This beautiful Mediterranean-style waterfront home and guesthouse with gorgeous 180-degree water views offer you a tranquil retreat on the Kitsap Peninsula -- only one hour from Seattle but a world away from noise and stress. We are located ten minutes from the Kingston-Edmonds ferry on Gamble Bay, near Hood Canal and Port Gamble, just 20 minutes from Poulsbo.

Relax on the large front lawn and watch the eagles and osprey soaring overhead. Listen for the cry of the blue heron, admire the deer that wander through the yard, watch the fish leaping in the bay. The house sits on 1 3/4 acres and is very private and quiet - the houses on either side can't be seen. It overlooks a sheltered inlet on Puget Sound that is great for beachcombing, swimming, and kayaking. Walk down the stairs to explore our private beach and gather your own clams and oysters for dinner. A gas grill and a picnic table make outdoor dining easy. Later you can watch the sun set on the bay and use the firepit to make s’mores. At night, go outside and wonder at the stars – far more than you’ll ever see in the city. Watch a DVD on our 32' flatscreen, read a book by the fire, or listen to music from our CD collection.

Built in 1949 by a master craftsman, the house is completely modernized but retains its original charm with lovely hardwood floors, beautiful architectural lines and exquisite stone masonry. The fully-equipped kitchen includes a range, microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher, espresso machine, and fine culinary tools (I love to cook!) The master bedroom has a king bed, a private bath, and French doors that open onto a sunny terazzo terrace. Carpeted stairs lead to a second floor which has a king bed and double bed, with a full bath right at the foot of the stairs. The living room features a vaulted ceiling which gives an open feeling, and has a sofa that makes into a queen bed. Two dining room tables easily seat 12. Curl up with a good book in the sunny corner window. Play one of our many board games. Or just be still and appreciate the amazing silence. The charming guesthouse has a queen bed, a futon that makes into a bed, and a private bath with shower, making it a perfect separate space for members of your group.

There are lovely walks and hikes right from our front door. A large grocery store and DVD rentals are six minutes away. Twenty minutes brings you to the charming Scandinavian town of Poulsbo, forty minutes to historic Port Townsend with its antique galleries and fabulous restaurants, and seventy minutes to Port Angeles where you will find quick ferry access to Victoria, Canada, plus incredible mountain scenery at Hurricane Ridge in the Olympic National Forest. Nearby Bainbridge Island offers excellent golf, restaurants, galleries, and cultural events year-round. A notebook with extensive recommendations for day trips, events, local restaurants and fun excursions is on the table when you arrive.

This delightful home is a perfect place for a quiet retreat, a family gathering, or a romantic second honeymoon. Summers are truly beautiful here and last well into October. Puget Sound winters are generally mild (although somewhat damp) but the misty days are perfect for catching up on your reading or finally writing that novel.

Come experience the most relaxing getaway you have ever had. You will feel the calm energy as soon as you arrive.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: I'm a northwest native, a retired school administrator, and now an educational consultant. My husband and I live mainly in Seattle, but escape to our Kingston waterfront home whenever we can. We hope you love it as much as we do!

Why the Owner Chose Kingston, WA, USA:
It is peaceful and beautiful, yet it's only an hour away from Seattle - one ferry ride puts you in another world.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love just sitting and looking at the view, gathering oysters on the beach, watching the deer wander through the yard, and toasting marshmallows by the fire. Plus, it's a perfect base for visiting other fun places in the area, such as Poulsbo, Port Townsend, and Sequim - even Victoria, Canada is easy to get to by way of Port Angeles.
