About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Sleeper Sofa, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This fully renovated warm sunny south facing waterfront home looks out to a protected harbor with views of picturesque Quartermaster Marina and Yacht Club and peaceful Burton Peninsula . Audubon View is only a 20 minute ferry ride from Seattle or 10 minutes from Tacoma and centrally located to nearby dining, this classic 1905 home offers convenience beyond compare.

Walk, bike, drive, boat or even fly to this exceptional location. On the bus line and at your service. That's right, you can take the bus, get a taxi, rent a car, or even hire a plane to land you right in front of the house.

Having the unique distinction of being situated on the isthmus of Quartermaster Harbor and Portage you can access two bodies of water abundant in every possible aquatic activity desirable. Paddleboarding, swimming, snorkeling, salmon fishing, crabbing, sailing, kayaking, horse back on the beach and much more are at your fingertips. A great water playground for kids of any age with access to water craft and a floating dock.

Inside the house you will find an open kitchen design to make it easy for entertaining friends and family. The upstairs master bedroom with an open bathroom is naturally lit from every direction. Open the operable skylights to the south and let the fresh saline air replenish you.

At the end of the day relax on the covered front porch with drinks and loved ones. Reserve an in house massage. Have a catered meal delivered to you.

For birders, view the more than 30 varieties of birds from the convenience of your front porch. The National Audubon Society has designated this as an important bird area.

Come and enjoy this remarkable recreational wonderland conveniently located in the Puget Sound.
