Nestled on the northernmost end of the Kitsap Peninsula, Hansville is a quiet enclave with sweeping views of Puget Sound from nearly everywhere—and the wildlife watching opportunities to match. Plenty of public beach and parkland ensure activities for any outdoor enthusiast. Though its population is just under 4,000, it’s ideally located just a short drive to larger shopping and amenities, to the ferry to locations east of Puget Sound, and to the Olympic Peninsula to the west. Crime and unemployment rates for Hansville residents are lower than the rest of the state.
Surrounded by water on three sides, Hansville is all about the water-view lots. Like the rest of Kitsap County, building means navigating stringent requirements for engineered drainage and tight buildable envelopes due to setbacks from septic, well, and shoreline. Many of the lots may be sloped, so a geotech report will likely be needed; sprinklers also may be required by local code. Estes Builders can help you navigate these and other unique considerations while ensuring your home design makes the best use of your lot’s amenities.
