Belong to the quiet of the forest on the shores of the Salish Sea. A hand-built log cabin made from the surrounding trees stands on 3.86 wooded acres with tidelands and 147 feet of medium bank, west-facing waterfront. The cabin’s multitude of windows look to Case Inlet, Herron Island and the Olympics. Covered by a metal roof, plumbed for propane with a wood stove for heat, this Key Peninsula home needs restoration, investment and vision. Already in place is a permitted septic and well on land where ferns unfurl. This is a place for people who watch the sunset, who listen for birds, who seek life near the water, or a summer retreat. It’s a place set apart, but not so hard to reach: 35 minutes to Tacoma, 7 to the boat launch, 13 to groceries.
