Secluded from the outside world, yet only minutes by air or ferry from downtown Seattle lies one of the best waterfront retreats in the Puget Sound Region.
The inside boasts 3,700 square feet. Large windows let in plenty of natural light. Multiple fireplaces and fire pit make the evenings cozy all year round.
Sunsets are stunningly beautiful. Mornings are pristinely serene and accented by nature’s bounty.
Designed for privacy between levels if desired (e.g. 2 families, or parents & kids…), or for easy interaction. The upper level features living room, dining, with the master with bath, 2 additional bedrooms and bath, laundry, full featured kitchen, large deck with barbecue and table seating for 20, lounge chairs. The lower level features 2 bedrooms, bathroom, full featured kitchen, media/family area, entertainment room with ping pong table and bonus bed, and direct access to fire pit area.
Total of 1 king size bed, four queen size beds and one twin. Very comfortably sleeps 11 and entertains many more without feeling a bit crowded. A wonderful layout for a very large family or for multiple families -- and and still cozy if for a small family.
The house sits on 1 1/4 acres and is very private and quiet. It overlooks a sheltered bay on Puget Sound that is great for beach combing, swimming, and kayaking. (Kayak and paddle board rentals in nearby Port Gamble. Deliveries and pickups possible. ). It’s wonderful to walk along the clean beach with few people around. Explore for miles.
(NOTE: Plenty of shellfish on our property - which extends straight out property lines on land to beach - BUT picking up or HARVESTING clams, oysters, and other sea life is ONLY ALLOWED AND LEGAL ON OUR PROPERTY which continues straight out into the water from our land-property lines. So while enjoying the beach, you may wander and enjoy much of the bay, while respecting our neighbors' rights. )
A gas grill just outside the upstairs kitchen and two picnic tables make outdoor dining easy. Later you can watch the sun set on the bay.
Gather for conversation and story telling around the fire pit, roast hot dogs and make s’mores. Wonder at the stars – far more than visible in the city.
Equipped with 2 quality TV’s and cable access, there are plenty of options for one's viewing pleasure. Wifi internet serves the entire house.
On an inlet of Hood Canal, just ten minutes drive to the lovingly preserved 1860’s waterfront town of Port Gamble, twenty minutes brings you to the charming Scandinavian town of Poulsbo, forty minutes to historic Port Townsend with its antique galleries, cultural events, charming restaurants, and seventy minutes to Port Angeles where you will find quick ferry access to Victoria, Canada, plus incredible mountain scenery at Hurricane Ridge in the Olympic National Forest. Nearby golf and range.
A notebook with extensive recommendations for day trips, events, local restaurants and fun excursions is on the table when you arrive.
Come to this special place and enjoy a piece of Puget Sound paradise. We look forward to your visiting soon!
