This charming Beach Retreat is conveniently located on the tip of Olympia's exquisite "Johnson Point", where you'll view an abundance of wildlife, and sip your favorite morning brew while a constant flow of tugs, trawlers, and sailors round the Point on their Puget Sound journeys. To the east is a breathtaking view of Mt. Rainier and the Cascade foothills, while the Olympic Mountains are in view to the west. You'll be only 15 minutes from downtown Olympia (the State capital), while Tacoma lies just 20 miles to the north, and Seattle is a mere 25 miles beyond that.
The home is located on the lower tier of the property, at the water's edge, where the sandy beach lies just beyond the bulkhead, less than ten feet from the front of the home. Tidal variations are rather extreme in the Puget Sound, fluctuating by as much as 20 vertical feet from the highest of highs, to the lowest of lows. When the tide is up, you'll feel as though you're floating in a houseboat. When the tide is out, you'll enjoy one of the finest sandy shores on the Sound. Feel free to grab a shovel and dig for clams, or use the dinghy to toss out a crab pot and catch your evening meal. A mooring buoy is located just off-shore for those wishing to bring along a pleasure boat.
With approximately 1,400 square feet of total living space, the home may not be large, but it has a very efficient design. The first floor is open and includes the kitchen, dining, and living space, plus a half-bath with a nook for the washer/dryer. The upper floor has two large bedrooms with king beds, a kids room with twin bed, and a full bath with double sinks. A cozy bungalow is detached from the main home and can accomodate an additional overnight guest on a queen sleeper sofa.
