I promised this week to write an article about the different neighborhoods located around Naval Base Kitsap. There are so many different places to live it is hard to pick just a few. Here is just a partial list of the neighborhoods:
I have chosen four very diverse neighborhoods to inform you about. Blueberry Meadows in East Bremerton, Manette just over the bridge from downtown Bremerton, Charleston in the heart of Bremerton and a huge area of Silverdale called Ridgetop. I have included pictures of homes that represent the styles of the area without invading anyone's privacy. I have also included a few aerial shots so that you can see the lay of the land of the neighborhoods. These "eye in the sky" shots really show the difference from the older and newer neighborhoods. As always if you would like any more detailed information about any neighborhood just send me an email for a hassle free response.
Affordable living describes life in East Bremerton. Quick access to parks and recreation, friendly safe neighborhoods and a large selection of places to live makes East Bremerton one of the most popular areas in the Naval Base Kitsap region.
Blueberry Meadows is a very desirable community. Currently there are six homes on the market in the price range of $249,500 to $302,000. Most of the homes in this planned community were built in the early 2000's. Here you will find 3 and 4 bedroom homes situated on nice sized lots in the Central Kitsap School District area. There are community play areas and some homes have the pleasure of being up against a greenbelt. Close to shopping, bases and transportation, Blueberry Meadows is a great place to live. If you would like to see the actual listings for these 6 homes please contact me via email and I will be glad to send the information to you without hassle.
Crossing over the Port Washington Narrows on the Manette Bridge is the electric, artsy community called Manette. Here you will find a neighborhood that has amazing views of Mt Rainer, Port Orchard and boat and ferry traffic.
There are currently 34 homes on the market in the price range of $189,000 - $695,000. The majority of the homes built in Manette were built during the 1930's and 1940's. Many have views and there are several waterfront properties, some with low bank.
Many of these homes are the styles of yesteryear with coved ceilings, original natural wood floors, glass door knobs and angles and spaces that add so much character to a home. There are several "spots" in Manette that you must visit.
One of my favorite is the BoatShed Bar and Grill. This is a family style restaurant located just over the Manette Bridge on Shore Drive - well unless you pull up to the dock from the water. My husband took me there on our first Valentine's Day date. The service is fantastic and the atmosphere is very quaint.
If you would like to see the actual listings for the homes in Manette, please just send me an email and I will send them off to you. No hassle - hassle free!
In the Heart of Bremerton you will find the area called Charleston.
A neighborhood filled with craftsman charm to new age modern. Most homes were built in the 1920's, 1930's, 1940's and 1950's, however with the boom in the area a couple of builders found some lots and built some new construction homes.
There are currently 15 homes on the market in the price range of $125,000 to $299,500. Some of these homes have terrific mountain and water views. Several homes have been remodeled/restored so offer old world charm with a taste of the future. You will find homes with large room sizes, built-ins, walk-ins, original hardwood floors, fabulous craftsman fireplaces and mature landscaping.
The Silverdale area of West Puget Sound is home to some of the new home communities. Over the last several years there have been many "developments" built to include the Ridgetop area, Summerwind, Ridgeview, The Glenn at Quail Ridge and several others. There are also several newer townhouse communities such as SilverRidge and Breckenridge. Choices of home styles and neighborhoods abound in the Silverdale area.
During the 1980's though the 1990's the developments in the area that is called Rigetop were built. Most of these homes are the traditional Northwest two-story design with some splits and multi-level to keep some balance. Here you will find the neighborhoods of Ridgetop, RidgeView, SilverRidge, RidgeView II, The Highlands @ Ridgetop, Glen at Quail Ridge, VistaRidge and several others. In the Pacific Northwest we love to name our neighborhoods!!
Currently on the market are 20 homes in the price range from $250,000 to $515,000 (this one brand new). These homes feature 3,4 and 5 bedrooms, usually a bonus/family-room and at least 2 baths. The size varies by plan and builder but the norm is 2,000-2,400 sq ft. The neighborhoods and homes are well cared for with up-grades added as the years gone by. You will find extensive landscaping and some real garden paradise. We love to BBQ here and so you will be thrilled to see different types of BBQ areas, some on decks, some on patios and some built into a gazebo in the yard.
