Toward the top of a quiet Bremerton peninsula, this 1935 home has all the playfulness you’d expect from a good beach house: stained glass, French doors, and plenty of built-ins. It has a large, sheltered back porch with water views, and a cozy hearth inside for when things get chilly. Its large farmhouse kitchen is ideal for family baking projects, with butcher-block counters and lots of built-in pantry space.
That’s just the main house on a whole half-acre of waterfront getaway, the entire property built out with the same dreamy aesthetic. The home's deck expands into a shelter for a wood-fired hot tub. A conservatory-like glass house gives a crystalline frame to the bay view. Pockets of the property are designed for everything from picnics to solitary water-gazing. A second, smaller home on the property was built to match the exterior look and feel, and comes furnished—the current owners have been renting it out on Airbnb.
There’s a third house here, too: a craftsman playhouse that’s enviable even to adults, with a sunburst gable and a white picket railing. A hedge designates more kid-only space—the entrance is through a tall fairy-tale gate labeled “children’s garden” above. If it were sold separately, it would warrant its own column.
Medium-bank beachfront means the water’s close at hand. It’s rocky but calm: Ostrich Bay is at the southern end of Dyes Inlet, separated from the rest of Puget Sound by the Port Washington Narrows and Sinclair Inlet. Perched atop the bank, a large view deck includes a bar and a recessed, sheltered fire-pit area with built-in seating.
