Keep an Eye on Seattle From This $1.15M Kingston Waterfront Home

You can live pretty well out on Kitsap Peninsula.

Either they put the hot tub in the bedroom, or put a bed outside beside the hot tub. In either case, this waterfront house is proof that living on the Kitsap Peninsula can be a bit more unconventional.

The pair may be outside because the bed looks like a wall bed, which means it can be stowed away from the weather, just the hot tub. Whether that counts as one of the 3 bedrooms is something you get to research. The 3.5 bathrooms are probably all inside. The house is a 3,470 square foot two story that sits on 1.58 acres of low bank beach, your own bit of the Sound.

For $1,150,000 it is worth checking to see if any of those lot lines are on the other side of the road or the other side of the high tide line. A beach house means sand, and this house is smart enough to have first floors that are easy to sweep tiles. Living on the peninsula and unprotected from storms, it makes sense that the house is wired for a generator, while also including two fireplaces, and a classic cast-iron wood-fired kitchen stove. Just in case.

There's only been one owner since it was built in 1996, so the architecture and decor have settled in to fit one perspective of comfortable pragmatism and an appreciation for the outdoors, which explains the telescopes for watching the world from the inside, and the garden with shed for tending a bit of the outside.
