About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Explore the Olympic Peninsula from this private home located just minutes from the Hood Canal Bridge. Or, relax on the wrap-around deck and enjoy the fantastic view! The house looks west to the Olympic Mountains, east to the Cascades and Mount Baker, south to the Hood Canal, and north to Puget Sound.

Comfortably furnished with antiques, this 3 bedroom, 3000 square foot house has the perfect floor plan for a family vacation. The master bedroom suite is on the main floor and opens onto the deck. A second bedroom with 4 single beds is on the same floor. A third bedroom and the TV/rec room are in the daylight basement.

The master bedroom has a queen bed and a large attached master bath with walk-in shower and large jacuzzi tub. Perfect for the adults!

The second mainfloor bedroom comfortably sleeps 4. It has 2 twin beds, plus a day bed with a pop-up trundle. A full bath w/ shower and tub is just around the corner. Perfect for the kids!

The third bedroom has a queen-size bed, and is across the hall from a full bath and next to the downstairs TV room/den with a queen-size sleeper sofa. This arrangement is perfect for teens, or a second couple!

Enjoy the views from the open dining/living room. It has a high vaulted ceiling, a wood-burning fireplace, and floor to ceiling windows.The dining room table easily seats 8. The large, open kitchen has 2 stoves, a breakfast counter that seats 4, and is fully stocked with staples.

In the summer you will want to relax on the deck. A patio table and several patio chairs are provided, along with a gas grill.

The house is at the end of a mile long private road, so there is very little traffic, no noise, and lots of privacy. The 2 acre property has a large swing set/play structure for the kids, several flower gardens, and lots of room to run around and explore. Because of a unique location--near a forest on the edge of a meadow--there are several varieties of wild birds in the area, from hummingbirds to hawks. Bird feeders attract them to the garden, where they are easily viewed from the deck and dining room. If you are a bird lover, you will love this house.

The Port Ludlow Resort is nearby. There you will find kayaking, boating, 3 9-hole championship golf courses, hiking trails and restaurants.

The house is just minutes from Highway 104 and the Hood Canal Bridge, which makes it a perfect location for day trips in every direction. Or, don't drive anywhere: just step out the door, take a stroll down the private road, and enjoy the peace and quiet of the country.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I grew up in Washington, and bought this house so we could spend the summers and school holidays there with our 2 kids. The house is really our second home, and has everything from satellite TV to wireless internet. When I'm not out in the garden I enjoy sitting on the deck and watching the sun set over the Olympics. The rest of the year we live in Chicago, and I miss the mountains.

Why the Owner Chose Port Ludlow, WA, USA:
The house is at the very top of one of the highest hills in Jefferson County, and has 180 degree unobstructed views of Hood Canal, the Olympic mountains and Puget Sound. The view is just amazing!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
By far the best feature of the house is the view, and the fact that you can see mountains or water from every room. We recently enlarged the deck, and put in a tempered glass railing system to maximize the view. The other unique feature is being off the main road, so you have peace and privacy, as well as great walking or jogging paths right out the front door.
