About the owner: Our home on Kilisut Harbor was built by our parents in 1969, in fulfillment of their retirement dream.. Now the extended family...children, grandchildren and great grandchild... are fortunate to be able to continue to enjoy this very special place in all seasons. A small scale house by design, it incorporates the beauty of the site at every angle and promotes indoor/outdoor living. It is quintessential Pacific Northwest. No wonder we love it so. We are 6 generations of Washingtonians. Its a getaway place in winter and a festival of activities in the summer: baseball in the meadow, an impromptu golf course, good moorage for a boat, fun on the beach, crab boils, songs round the campfire. In any season a beachwalk on driftwood-strewn Marrowstone Point is a must where we search for the latest treasures high tide has brought. You will find us outdoors, year 'round, and always outfitted in the uniform of Puget Sound country: fleece, goretex and and waterproof boots. We know this place to be rare and priceless, we are pleased to share it with others who will treasure it as we do. We know this place to be rare and priceless; we are pleased to share it with others who will treasure it as we do.
