Yeomalt Beach House is located on one of the best beaches on Bainbridge Island. Just 5 minutes from the ferry, shopping, restaurants, a public swimming pool, golf, museums, kayak and boat rentals, this beautiful 3 bedroom home was designed by award winning architect Jeff Parshalle and recently completed by one of the finest builders on Bainbridge. From this home one can beach walk for miles at lower tides in either direction and during summer months one can enjoy all day sun from sunrise to sunset. The house is built just a few feet from and a couple of feet above the high tide mark. You will enjoy views of the busy Puget Sound shipping lanes North from Mount Baker to the Seattle skyline to the South. And, all of the neighbors are friendly! Many who own property on this special beach have been enjoying it for 3 generations. On most summer evenings and especially weekends one or more campfires are being enjoyed by young and old alike.
This gracious home was designed and built with both outdoor and indoor entertaining in mind. Barbecue your oysters in the Japanese Kamado smoker or your steaks on the outdoor propane grill. Warm yourself in evenings with a custom built standing steel fire pit for outdoor nighttime campfires or with a beach campfire. A large cedar deck just off the beach accommodates many guests as does the large flagstone terrace that wraps around the house. There is an outdoor shower for those who are willing to brave the chilly saltwater to swim, snorkel or dive. A canoe and life jackets are available for calm water days. Beautiful perennial gardens surround the exterior of the home as do weathered Cascade granite stone walls. Find some of your favorite fresh herbs, berries and vegetables amongst the many gardens. Eagles, blue herons, waterfowl, seals, sea lions, otters and even occasionally orca whales can be seen as they frequent this beach. The local beach dogs are welcoming and friendly.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Kinam and Eric,
Thank you again for another wonderful time at your lovely place. We had an excellent time! It was sooo relaxing. The beach walks were wonderful this year and the fishing was excellent! We enjoyed watching all the salmon fishermen. The kings were in. Neighbors caught pink salmon off the beach and crab pots were filled. The best time of the day for me, besides wonderful golden hour on the deck and glorious sunsets, is dawn, with spectacular sunrise over Seattle. The sky was different every day but always beautiful.. Magical moments! Yeomalt is one giant photo-opportunity! We look forward to returning in coming years!
