If you're buying a house on Peace Beach, it's probably because you want some quiet. Spend $3,190,000 and you get that plus 700 feet of waterfront, a way to launch your boat, a place to moor your boat, a house with 3 bedrooms and 5 baths, and 18 acres of land that include formal gardens, brick paths, and a gazebo. From one end of the property to the other you can go from mucking about on the tideflats to sitting for high tea upland by the landscaped pond. Indoors, the style is upscale casual, because trying to one-up the land may be difficult. There is marble, but it isn't strongly apparent until you see the refined bathroom suites, each of which are distinctive - a curved pedestal bath in one, a long rectangular bath edged by steps in another. The house is 4,000 square feet, so each room has the opportunity to feel expansive. The atrium ceiling in the living room opens the space to a long balcony along the signature arched window that looks back out on the gardens. Keep in mind that from Port Ludlow, Seattle is about two hours away; but Victoria is only a three hour trip - just in case you want that high tea to be some place very British, Columbia that is.
