Exceptional area for waterfront biking. Just 40 minutes by bike to Manchester Park with stunning views all the way. The local foot ferry delivers you to the Bremerton/Seattle ferry (drive on or walk aboard), which travels to downtown Seattle just two blocks from Pike Street Market, downtown shopping, Seattle Art Museum, Benaroya Hall, theater. If you kayak or surf try Crescent Beach just a couple hours away on the Hood Canal. For stunning mountain views drive 90 minutes to Hurrican Ridge and relax at the visitor center or do an easy hike.
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: Originally from rural South Dakota, I've been a resident of the Puget Sound area since 1977 where I've owned and operated an industrial business for 20 years. My home is in nearby Steilacoom.
Why the Owner Chose Port Orchard, WA, USA:
I love the location of this home, with the daily cycle of foot ferry running from Port Orchard to the Bremerton terminal and the big ferry going to and from Seattle. Open the window or step outside and you'll hear the gulls and see the flocks of ducks on the water. You will often hear sea lions from across the bay and always the scent of salt water.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I enjoy bicycling and this house sits right on one of my favorite routes. Indeed, it is a popular year-round biking destination because of local waterfront and rural paved roads. The location makes the house a great hub for day trips. The local foot ferry is about a mile and a half away and it travels all day Monday through Saturday to the Bremerton ferry terminal. There's live music on weekends just a couple blocks away at the Blue Goose and good restaurants within walking distance.
