We purchased this one-of-a-kind 2.5 acre property in 2005. We strove to build a home that maximizes the view and setting. It is a Northwest Craftsman, built with attention to every detail. The finishes are timeless, classic, durable, and comfortable. View windows, natural light, radiant energy-efficient heat, and inviting functionality of rooms and fixtures for family members, young and old, present and future, were the priorities. The home was completed in the year 2006 with these priorities realized. It has been a splendid home with ongoing potential in a wonderful property. The slopes and terraces can be developed into striking landscapes. The forest contains a natural fresh water spring and stately cedar trees. The little spot has a sense of remoteness among the wildlife, but in reality sits among a friendly neighborhood, a short distance from urban convenience. Mile hill is just 5 minutes away with grocery, gyms, dance studio, cinema. Down the hill is beach drive with a restful, easy commute to Bremerton around the bay, through Old Town Port Orchard. Port Orchard is a great harbor community with history, family fun community events, and day to day bustling activity of shops and private businesses. Manchester State Park is just over the east side of the hill, and in fact, you can hear the seals barking in the quiet of the night at the pier. Manchester community has its spectacular view of the Seattle skyline and hosts a great community supported library that is plugged into the greater Kitsap Regional Library system. The Southworth Ferry to Fauntleroy, West Seattle is a 15 minute drive for an easy Seattle commute alternative or an occasional day excursion on the Washington State Ferry system.
