Listed $300,000/Sold $306,000
This comfortable, single-level rambler with interior updates is set on ¾ acres, and is well-placed for easy commuting. Reach the Southworth Ferry in 15 minutes, downtown Port Orchard in 10, and drive less than 5 minutes for groceries! But before we get into the location, take a look inside. This home has seen some good changes in the past couple of years. All new flooring creates a clean, finished feeling in every room. And the renovated kitchen with its new appliances, cabinets, sink, and backsplash is a fresh, bright highlight of the home. With both a full bath in the hall, and a private ¾ bath in the en suite bedroom, there’s flexibility for family living, guests, or housemates. It’s all covered by a newer roof. And when you’re ready to go outside, just open the sliding doors from the family room to the deck and enjoy the fenced back yard.
We mentioned downtown Port Orchard and one of the nearby ferry terminals, but there are also beachfront parks, and restaurants within reach, as well as easy highway access. But you can read more about that in our dedicated location section further down.
Continue on for the video tour, photos, location highlights (including driving time/distance to a list of local destinations), and many more details about this home.
Single Level Living
En Suite Bedroom with 3/4 Bath
2 Additional Bedrooms
2 Car Attached Garage with Laundry
3/4 acre lot
Fenced back yard
Family and friends can sit in the dining room without being completely separate from the kitchen, so the cook can visit and keep an eye on things. The bar counter is a great spot to pull up a stool for a cup of coffee or a chat with the cook, but it’s also a great spot to lay dinner out buffet-style with easy access from the table. The new flooring continues from the kitchen into the dining room which also overlooks the back yard and is lit by a new ceiling fan light fixture.
You might be seeing the “Family Room” heading and wondering what you’re looking at. This room is designed as a family room, but is set up here as a beautiful bedroom. It could even be used as a home office, a studio, sewing room, or play room. You probably have your own ideas! No matter what, you’ll enjoy the light through the sliding doors to the deck.
This flexible room has a door leading into the dining room (shown open), with another door opening into the hallway. Notice the new laminate flooring. No carpets in this home, which is helpful for managing dust and allergies.
En Suite Bedroom with Private 3/4 Bath
Although you're looking at cute bunkbeds and a sweet children's room, this is the en suite bedroom with its private 3/4 bath shown above. With new laminate floors, a window overlooking the back yard and its own bathroom, this is such a lovely bedroom you might have to make it your own!
Don’t miss the nice glimpse of trees out back through the bedroom windows.
2 Additional Bedrooms
One of three bedrooms, this room is also set with the new laminate floors found throughout the home, and has a good sized closet with a shelf up top for storage. The window looks west over the front yard. The neutral paint and floor colors allow you to bring in any color palette you enjoy by adding curtains, bedding, rugs, art, and photos.
The 3rd bedroom shares the new flooring and clean, simple layout found throughout the home. You’ll notice the closet is left open and organized with a dresser, toys, and storage bins up top. Set it up for teens, kids, or guests. With 3 bedrooms and a flexible family room space, you have room to choose!
2 Car Attached Garage with Laundry
You’ll find this home on a wooded Port Orchard road on the Kitsap Peninsula, an area shaped by the Salish Sea. It’s not far to beach parks for camping, clamming, wandering, and picnicking, ferry terminals for commuting or day trips to Seattle, and historic downtown Port Orchard is just over 10 minutes way. In Port Orchard you can browse antique shops, walk the boardwalk, shop the Saturday Farmers Market, explore the marina, and find a meal.
Port Orchard is situated on Sinclair Inlet, just across from Bremerton, and 18 miles north of Gig Harbor. Whether you’re looking for a place to retire, a home with good access to the Bremerton shipyards, or even a quiet location that allows you to catch a ferry to the city, this could be your spot.
Manchester State Park with its historic structures, picnic shelter, 2 miles of hiking trails, 128 acres, a volleyball court, and 3,400 feet of saltwater shoreline is less than 15 minutes away. Go for the day, or find a camping spot for a close-to-home getaway.
