Low Bank Waterfront Home w/Dock – Poulsbo

17150 Scandia Ct NW, Poulsbo WA 98370. Waterfront Home on Acreage with Dock

Perhaps once in a lifetime will you find a property such as this. Located on the tip of Scandia Point with 750’ of Liberty Way waterfront with the City of Poulsbo straight ahead and the activity of all three marinas in view, there’s always something to see.  There is abundant sea life plus a myriad of bird activity including several Bald Eagles who perch nearby.

Winding down the driveway through the security gate, you immediately feel peaceful and nourished. The mature gardens on two acres have been lovingly maintained and deliver joy during every season.  With the many different specimen trees-colors and textures add to the complexity of the landscaping. The little greenhouse overwinters plants and is the site of seed starts in the spring, but it is warm and inviting any time of the year. The softly flowing waters of the waterfall spill under a walkway and into a pond surrounded by colorful vegetation. The gardens were featured in the West Sound Home and Garden magazine.

Upon arriving you are greeted with a Grand double-door entry into a 2-story faux-painted foyer with impressive cherry staircase, chandelier and custom lighting.

The family room has a gas fireplace, ceiling fan and whole house sound system.

The house was sited looking north so upon entering the great room, you are met with unparalleled views of the City of Poulsbo and all the boat activity on Liberty Bay. Sometimes you feel as though you are in a boat on the water-that is how close the water feels. The fabulous stone wood-burning fireplace has been the source of great enjoyment through these years. There really is nothing like the crackle of a real fire!

This is a great kitchen to cook in. Plenty of countertop and storage with ample space to move around in. Spice drawers next to the stove-absolutely super.

Entertaining is easy as the home is able to accommodate large groups with good traffic flow. Plus, when you are doing your last-minute preparations, you’re not in another room but part of the party.  It has been a great 20 years of hosting many parties-especially the yearly 3rd of July get-together.

The whole home has deeply pigmented colors- the colors of autumn. My favorite season. The master suite has faux –painted walls plus texture adding to the ambience. The room is generous in size and has a lovely sitting area that allows you to see in all directions.  It’s fun to watch the snow coming down or a storm rolling it.  The July 4th, we see ALL the little parties going on. Great fun.

The master bath has a walk-in glass block shower and a deep 2-person jetted tub. Watching the planes from afar as they line up to land at Sea-Tac is lovely at night.

Two additional bedrooms-both spacious with grand views of the gardens and the water.

There is a shared pier with an aluminum ramp and a 30’ dock. In the past we have had several little boats that we used for fishing and crabbing or just heading over to Poulsbo to get some goodies from Sluy’s Bakery.
