About Becky Benz
My family has lived in Port Madison since 1953 when they moved from Alaska to Port Gamble and then settled in this fabulous Bainbridge Island neighborhood. Because I grew up here, the community holds a special place in my heart. Our home was built in 1986 to provide a special place for our two boys to enjoy their childhood. They often played at the beach and spent many hours looking under rocks for crabs, collecting special rocks and beach glass, fishing off of the dock, swimming, and water skiing. A most special place!
Becky Benz purchased this house in 1986
Why Becky Benz chose Bainbridge Island
Our Port Madison home is private, peaceful and a few steps from the community beach. Relax on the deck outdoors or go beachcombing on our private bay-front beach. The house is Cape Cod style, is well maintained and set up for visitors to enjoy their stay....all aspects have been anticipated....for that special Port Madison and Bainbridge Island vacation. Your small dog is welcome, but remember that leashes are required on Bainbridge Island!
What makes this house unique
Port Madison was a thriving lumber mill and port in the 1800s which contributed to the vitality and development of the Puget Sound region. Still standing are a few of the original lumber mill homes, which add to the character of this special community.
