More about Suquamish Washington
Suquamish is more of an area than it is a town. Nestled across the straight from Agate Point at the entrance to Liberty Bay just east of Poulsbo, Suquamish is a Census Designated Pl. in Kitsap County comprising part of the Port Madison Indian Reservation and it's the burial site of Chief Seattle and the Suquamish tribe's winter longhouse known as Old Man House. This is the largest "big house" in the state of Washington lying at the center of the Suquamish winter village on Agate Pass just south of the present-day Suquamish community. And yes… Suquamish is another one of those unique Indian words that encompass many of our communities, towns, and villages.
The Suquamish tribe took their name from the traditional Lushootseed phrase for "people of the clear salt water" or local fishermen, canoe builders, and basket weavers. This area, just 13 miles from Seattle across the water offers a family-friendly community with community events, festivals, and activities cherishing the beautiful heritage and culture of the Suquamish people. The most prominent landmark is probably the "boathouse" and the Suquamish Museum. This beautiful, ancient place is immortalized in the Suquamish Museum. Learn about the historic waterfront community that brings together saltwater, streams, and the Pacific Northwest forests. The community was built on the eastern side of a hill that reaches 300 feet above the water providing beautiful views of Agate Pass, Miller Bay, now tree near, and the Puget Sound. While it is still culturally and economically diverse, you'll find a mix of non-native residents, local artists, commuters, and retirees.
But enough about the history, what's it like to live here?
Most of the town sits on the eastern shore of Port Madison looking over to Agate Point, Indianola, and the Shoreline area of North Seattle. A quieter, more sleepy community, residents are no more than about 5 to 10 minutes from downtown Poulsbo, which offers all the amenities you could want such as a Central Market, restaurants, shops along Liberty Bay, and easy access to Highway 3, which runs north and south to Silverdale, Bremerton, the naval station, or North to the Hood Canal Bridge onto the Olympic Peninsula.
You'll find a variety of home styles nestled throughout the community as there are many winding roads and backcountry paths that wander through the beautiful hillside. Whether it's a waterfront home overlooking Port Madison, an estate above the hill along Agate Pass, a smaller starter home downtown, or a ranch somewhere inland, it's easy to find acreage in a home just about any price range. Properties range from $100,000-$900,000 on average with the majority hovering around $400,000-$700,000. A lot of homes have larger lots in this area simply due to the spacious availability.
