About Keith Gosnell
Kim grew up in the Port Townsend area, and I met her by chance while I was working at the Hamma Hamma oyster farm. Immediately smitten, I talked a blue streak until she had to go, and when we met again months later in Olympia (1988!) it was clear my sophisticated Washington D.C. yakking had done the trick! We bought the house in PT as Port Townsend is colloquially known, in '98 when Kim got a job in the area. We lived there for three years, and when her employment dried up, couldn't bear to sell. We live in Portland now, where Kim works in the field of her training and passion as an art teacher, and I'm the primary kid wrangler with a little remodeling on the side. We seriously love our place in PT, and look forward to retiring there someday, and living full time in our very special home.

Why Keith Gosnell chose Port Townsend
In a town best known for it's Victorian era architechture, our house stands out by representing a more recent wave of settlers to the area: Young creatives looking for an inexpensive, picturesque and bountiful setting to build their future in the sixties and seventies. From the winding driveway to the 600 sq ft deck, three gas fireplaces, delightful details abound throughout the property, which is largely undisturbed forest with a plethora of birdlife, deer, coyote, mushrooms, wild rhododendron,and once even a bobcat! In the meadow below the house, we've built a fire pit perfect for warming up any gathering of friends or family as night falls. Looking up into the 'bowl of stars' you'll understand why we couldn't bear to sell when we moved away to Portland in the early '00's.
What makes this Cabin unique
Our property is very private, and we often hear that plans get scuttled in favor of just hanging around the property. The decor is irreverent cross section of the last century's creative threads. In particular we love the almost 50 windows framing lush green portraits of the forest in every room, and the feeling of being much farther from civilization than you actually are. Our well water is similarly 'part of the cure'! High in minerals, and with a distinct odor, you won't ever mistake it for overchlorinated city water.
