When Peter Puget first mapped Key Peninsula (or “the KP” as it is more commonly referred to by locals), it was populated by native tribes who fished, clammed and hunted in the area – activities that are still popular with residents and visitors alike. Two state parks and a number of public beaches offer ample opportunity to engage with nature. Modern amenities are available in Key Center and Harbor Hill, and Highway 16 offers easy commuter access to Tacoma, Joint Base Lewis McChord and the Navy Shipyard in Bremerton. Seattle-bound ferry service is available at Southworth in Port Orchard.


15120 180th Ave NW is offered at $419,000.  Please visit  for more photos and additional property information or contact us directly to schedule a showing today.

Our Top Three Waterfront Sales


Waterfront living isn’t unique to the Puget Sound region, but it’s definitely part of what makes working as a Realtor in the area so special.  Jeff, Miles and I have listed and sold some really great waterfront properties over the years. They’ve each had features you would expect to find with a waterfront property, but they’ve also had personal histories that have made each house unique – and uniquely personal to us. Here are three of our favorite waterfront sales.





First up is a Raft Island Modern that was rebuilt from the foundation up in 2008 for an artist friend of ours and her husband.  The architect for the project was their son, which made owning and living in the house extra special for them. Some of my favorite things about this house are the open volumes of space, the mix of repurposed wood and steel, the huge windows overlooking Henderson Bay, the expansive wrap-around deck and the artist studio up above the house.  It’s rare to find this combination of drama, elegance and craftsmanship on the water, which made this home a pleasure to list and sell.




Waterfront homes aren’t just limited to the saltwater shores of the sound.  There are also lots of fantastic lakefront homes in the area. A buyer client of ours recently purchased a beautiful, historic home in Lakewood with 130 feet of water frontage on desirable Gravelly Lake.  Our client was looking for a home that was big enough to entertain her kids and grandkids, and this house definitely delivered. Features include a spacious gourmet kitchen, a formal dining room, comfortable sitting areas and several decks with views of the lake.  This gated property also includes a dock and a two car detached garage with a guest apartment above.





The last home on our waterfront “tour” is a spectacular west-facing property in Poulsbo that we sold to friends of ours a few years back.  The house was originally built for a glass artist in 1997, and his handcrafted light fixtures and stained glass windows can be seen throughout.  This property embodies the best of the Pacific Northwest lifestyle – sweeping views of the Olympic Mountains, easy access to the water for paddle boarding and kayaking and an abundance of oysters, mussels and crab just waiting to be harvested.  We’ve been lucky enough to enjoy many a feast over the years at this one of a kind waterfront gem.





There are a lot of things to consider when you’re buying or selling a waterfront home – soil stability and drainage, bulkhead condition, tideland rights and moorage capacity to name just a few.  That’s why it’s important to partner with a Realtor who has experience with waterfront homes and a good working knowledge about what makes them unique. If you’re thinking about buying or selling a waterfront home, we’re here to help.
