What you will love about this home

Peaceful home (garden, field, woods) near Pt. Townsend, a lively Victorian seaport and arts center. Close to Seattle, Victoria, Vancouver and Olympic Mountains. Possible car exchange (Honda Civic). My house is located an easy drive from town with no visible neighbors. It's nestled in trees, surrounded by the garden but faces an open field (deer, rabbits, birds), so there's lots of light and an open feeling.Just 5 miles (bicycles in garage) from town (where there is public transportation) on 5 private acres near walking and horse riding trails. One-level, custom-built home with loft and lots of windows. Camping gear available for use. There is a heat pump which also works as an air conditioner. The 2nd bedroom has a bed that is slightly narrower, but longer than a standard double. Stays longer than a week would require watering the plants.

What you will love in the neighborhood

Pt. Townsend is a beautiful, small, friendly town with lots of art, music, dance, and festivals. It's the home of Centrum, the state arts organization. It has many shops, 2 cinemas, a farmers market, and fine restaurants. Located where the Straits of Juan de Fuca meet Puget Sound, it's a lively port and home to the Wooden Boat School, Wooden Boat Festival, and a Marine Science Center. It's an hour's drive, plus a half hour ferry ride to Seattle, 2 hours more to Vancouver, an hour's drive with a longer ferry to Victoria and Vancouver Island. The Pacific Ocean beaches are a few hours away, and there are numerous hiking possibilities nearby, including the snow-capped Olympics.
