About This Property

About 10101 Morris Blvd Ketron Island

Now offered at $1,299,900! From the moment you arrive at the private dock, stroll along the beach front, cross the lawn and open the magnificent entry doors adorned with hand carved totems you know you have just entered into a home that reflects the allure and patina of a bygone era. This unbelievable home is a Frank Lloyd Wright inspired contemporary built for Mr. & Mrs. J. C. Morris in 1963. Morris, an Alaska businessman purchased Ketron Island in 1946. He and his wife chose it as the site for their home. Harris, Reed & Wilson, Tacoma architects, designed for them a spacious home, oriented to the views. The builder was Fitzpatrick-McIntyre Construction of Tacoma. So striking with its rising horizontal planes that passing cruisers frequently stop to gaze at the 131 foot long home nestled into the northern point of the island. Sitting on 4.9 acres with 1000+ feet low bank waterfront this home stands out as a true architectural work of art. As you approach the entry doors to your left there is a 445 square foot "West Wing" private guest quarters. The large windows will amaze your guests with magnificent water views. Featured amenities include: private bath, sitting area and wood burning fireplace. Passing along the Wilkeson sandstone walls and through the massive oversized double door entry you will find a ceiling of red cedar and flooring made from beautiful Montana slate. The wide entry hall then leads in to the 22' x 36' living room that seems to blend into the outdoors with water view vistas seen through large oversized windows. This large living space is anchored by a grand Wilkeson sandstone wood burning fireplace. The ceiling is coffered for a sense of extra spaciousness and warm woods, cedar and Philippine mahogany lend warmth. The dining room has water views from 2 sides and opens to the covered patio. Cross the lawn from the patio to the gazebo where you can sit and gaze in awe as you observe the water and Olympic Mountains take on the many colors produced by phenomenal sunsets. A glorious sight to be seen. The large residence features a main floor master and master bath. On the second floor you will find 2 additional oversized bedrooms both with en suite baths and water views. There is, in addition, a 1/2 bath off the upstairs hallway. A family room/office with a wood burning fireplace and door that leads out to the wooded areas behind the home. The basement has a recreation room w/pool table and a very unique wine cellar that is housed in a large built-in vault. In addition there is a 1/2 bath off the hall of the basement and ample areas for storage. Resting peacefully on a .49 acre that abuts to the main house acreage you will find a quaint 399 square foot beachfront cottage. Built in 1930, the cottage has a kitchen, living room, bath and 1 bedroom. This has been used for guests and as an estate manager/caretaker residence. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for you to own your own private, secluded island estate on the tip of Ketron Island. Start living your unique Northwest Island Lifestyle surrounded by the abundant marine life of the beautiful south Puget Sound. Enjoy from your private island viewing vista whale watching, Orca sightings, Dall's porpoises speeding through the water, soaring eagles and other marine wildlife and birds that frequent this area. You certainly don't want to forget the outstanding fishing, crabbing and boating enjoyed by those of us fortunate enough to call this area our home.
