You can see the Christmas Ships from our house and hear the singing from the ships as they pass
You can see all of the ire works shows in Bremerton and Vashon from our house on the 4th of the July and New Years. It’s like your personal fireworks show
Directly above Me Kwa Mooks Park and Beach Drive
There’s a family of eagles that live in the pine tree that you can see from our house on the left. It’s pretty cool to watch them fly
Super close to Alki
Schmitz Park is just around the corner

Amazing home for entertaining- open the sliders and it’s the ultimate party house with the bar outside and fire pits. Great party flow and you double your square footage when the sliders are open and people easily flow from outside to inside
Outdoor bar with Carrera marble
Fire pit in the front yard and a fire place in the backyard make it a great place to entertain and relax year round
Opening up all of the sliders in the master bath shower makes you feel like you are showering outside
Total seclusion/privacy. You have no visible neighbors!
Water filtration system at the main water line to the house so all of our water is filtered at the source
Custom cabinets in the bathrooms
New metal roof last year!
Original wood floors in 2 of the bedrooms
Original chandelier from the 1970s (the one that hangs from the loft)
The home runs on propane (no natural gas on the street)
Fantastic Sunsets year around
You can watch the storms roll in during the fall and winter
Lots of great light in the home year around because we face West
The home is very tranquil because it is integrated with nature. You can open the sliders and feel the breeze and smell the fresh air. Hear water flowing in the reflection pool outside the master bedroom and the fountain by the front door. Feel the warms from the fire pits. All 4 natural elements are represented in the home which makes it very unique.
Super cool mid-century modern design. Everyone who visits the home comments on how architecturally interesting it is and how amazing the views are.
