About Marion Clemens
I grew up in Washington, and bought this house so we could spend the summers and school holidays there with our 2 kids. The house is really our second home, and has everything from satellite TV to wireless internet. When I'm not out in the garden I enjoy sitting on the deck and watching the sun set over the Olympics. The rest of the year we live in Chicago, and I miss the mountains.
Marion Clemens purchased this house in 2004
Why Marion Clemens chose Port Ludlow
The house is at the very top of one of the highest hills in Jefferson County, and has 180 degree unobstructed views of Hood Canal, the Olympic mountains and Puget Sound. The view is just amazing!
What makes this house unique
By far the best feature of the house is the view, and the fact that you can see mountains or water from every room. We recently enlarged the deck, and put in a tempered glass railing system to maximize the view. The other unique feature is being off the main road, so you have peace and privacy, as well as great walking or jogging paths right out the front door.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We have been in this wonderful house for a year. We were burned out of our home last May and it was such a relief to have a peaceful place to come home to. Every room has a view. In good weather, we didn't leave the deck until the sun set over the mountains. Spectacular. We watched the "meadow" change with the seasons, each one lovely.
The neighborhood is quiet but friendly. The house accommodated my whole family, with 7 children, when they came to visit. Toys and books are provided, as is a very nice outdoor gym set. House is fully stocked with linens, cooking utensils, dishes of all sorts.
It is with some regret that we leave for our home 6 miles away. We are thankful for our time here and will always remember this second home and lovely area.
