Hood Canal waterfront A-frame designed by Ralph Anderson

By June 23, 2023


Designed by famed local architect Ralph Anderson, 9741 E State Route 106 is nestled along the banks of the picturesque Hood Canal in Union, Washington. A house of twos, it features two bedrooms, two bonus lofted areas, two-and-a-half baths, and a prime locale—just two miles south of Alderbrook Resort & Spa. Most importantly, perhaps, is the 2,047-square-foot home’s wall-to-wall water views and direct water access.

A remodeled A-frame built in 1972, the home sits amid mature trees, facing the Olympic Mountains and the Hood Canal’s crystal clear waters. Natural light is abundant throughout, and a two-story wood-burning fireplace sits under soaring vaulted ceilings—a focal point of the main living space. Whether you’re lounging or entertaining guests, frequent sightings of eagles, otters, seals, and herons will always delight. Beyond the sliding doors, the deck is where you’ll want to be all summer long—steps away from a quick dip into the water, a SUP adventure, or a fishing break. There is a also natural stream that runs through the property and thanks to the Hood Canal Salmon Enhancement Group the sellers raised salmon! 75,000-100,000 endangered fall chum arrived as eggs, turn to fry in incubators, and drop into the ponds and then the canal.  Check out a video of that here.

Back inside, you’ll enjoy radiant heat, jetted tub, Toto washlet, and a dedicated laundry room in the main floor primary bedroom—not to mention a cozy, modern fireplace and expansive water views. Guest bedrooms, lofted spaces, and a second laundry room are all upstairs.

Known as “the father of Pioneer Square,” Ralph Anderson is remembered for kickstarting the revitalization of that neighborhood in the 1960s. A protégé of fellow Seattle architect Paul Hayden Kirk, he helped establish the Northwest Style of modernist architecture. Over the years, Anderson restored historically significant buildings throughout the region. He also designed, built, and remodeled many midcentury residential properties—like this one.
