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.

Living Room

Step inside from the covered entry with its bright red door and get your first glimpse of the cozy living room. A wood-burning stove insert and brick hearth will make a friendly glow on cool evenings (and there may even be some firewood stacked out back). New laminate floors are lit by a big front window and new light fixture with a ceiling fan for comfortable air flow.

The living room opens into the kitchen and dining room where the homeowners removed a partial dividing wall to create more light and a nicer sense of space.

Kitchen

This room is transformed. With all new stainless appliances and simple cabinet doors there’s a nice mix of modern and classic. Along with the new appliances and cabinet doors, there’s a new floor, new backsplash, and new sink and faucet. The kitchen overlooks the back yard, and the window is right where it should be, over the sink so you don’t have to face a wall when you do the dishes.

This angle lets you take a look at the cupboards and drawers under the bar counter. There’s a nice amount of storage here. And with a wide windowsill, you might find yourself following this example and placing flowers or little potted plants in the window for company.

Bar stools are a great spot to stick your friends or kids while getting meals or a snack ready. This design also ensures a good amount of counter space for chopping, stirring, and baking. The new refrigerator has a water filter, ice maker, and freezer drawer.

Dining Area

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.

Family Room

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

The private 3/4 bath is all set with bamboo flooring, a new toilet, and new pedestal sink. The clean white color scheme invites you to bring your own style and color to the room. You can make it pop with bold and friendly colors, choose soft florals, or neutrals. Anything goes!

The water heater is new too, so laundry, showers, and baths should all heat up nicely. And there’s a new garage door opener to make coming and going easy.

Outside

Through the sliding glass doors you'll find this shaded deck space where you might just set up your summer dining room. Add flowers, potted herbs, and an umbrella for color, and you'll be ready for afternoon tea and lemonade. Plant a shade garden with ferns, hostas, hardy fuchsia, trilliums, and other shade-loving plants. There are sunny spots too, so feel free to leave it low-maintenance with plenty of room for pets and people to run around, or add raised beds, and landscaping to your heart’s content.
