Located at the very tip of Kitsap Peninsula’s northern coast is the beautiful city of Hansville. With a population just shy of 4,000 people, Hansville offers residents the feel of a small town with lots of character unique to the incredible Pacific Northwest. If you love the natural surroundings Washington is known for all over the world; you should consider a house in Hansville.
The median household income in Hansville is $58,182. About a third of the population works within the city, with other residents commuting to surrounding towns or even across the Puget Sound to Seattle. Most residents are employed in the following industries:
Hansville is home to several small-business owners who focus on serving locals’ needs, as well as farmers who take advantage of the space and moderate weather conditions.
As with the rest of Kitsap County, the economy in Hansville has mainly remained stable over the past decade. This is most likely due to the combination of local businesses that support the community and the number of residents who draw their incomes from surrounding job markets.
Hansville is part of the North Kitsap School District, which includes ten schools and serves close to 6,000 students:
Elementary Schools (Pre-K – 5)
Middle Schools (6 – 8)
High School (9 – 12)
The nearest private schools are located in Poulsbo, which is about a 30-minute drive. These schools are:
Locals get their groceries from The Hansgrill, a combination grocery store and restaurant. There, you will find a menu that includes everything from espresso and wine to deli sandwiches, burgers, and ice cream. There’s even a special children’s menu.
When the weather is beautiful, you can enjoy your meal outside with a beautiful view of the Useless Bay.
You’re also never far from dining options in Port Gamble, Kingston, Breidablick, and other cities to the south. For special occasions, you could even take the ferry in Kingston to Seattle.
Since 1972, the Kitsap Audubon Society has been very active thanks to a large number of avian species that call the area home. The club has even designated Point No Point County Park, located right next to Hansville, as an Important Bird Area (IBA) because of the many different birds that migrate over it while taking the Pacific Flyway. As one of the most important of such areas in the country, it’s a great place to visit if you’d like to see a cross-section of the many birds that call the Pacific Northwest home, as well as migrating species from all over North America.
Another social club you could join in Hansville is the Flotsam and Jetsam Garden Club. The group has been meeting in Hansville for more than 50 years to support conservation of local wildlife, organize charitable and social events, and much more. Even if you don’t have a green thumb, it’s a great way to get to know your neighbors.
There are lots of entertainment options surrounding Hansville, as well. For example, one of the most popular ways for residents to have a good time on the weekends is to travel five miles south to Kingston for The Point Casino & Hotel.
It’s also just 15 miles to the ferry in Kingston that will take you to Seattle, where there are countless opportunities to have fun, from taking in a Mariner’s game to enjoying the full range of restaurants.
The ferry trip itself is only about 40 minutes. Many residents of Seattle keep second homes in Hansville because, even though it’s so close by, it feels like a whole different world compared to the cosmopolitan nature of the Emerald City.
What Hansville might lack in humanmade opportunities for fun, it more than makes up for in natural options. This city is a paradise for those who crave the natural wonders of the Pacific Northwest.
Though it’s far from the biggest city in Kitsap County, Hansville features plenty of wide-open spaces. It’s not hard to find pastures with cows and horses grazing with a farmhouse in the background. It’s also not hard to see incredible views and trails for those who love the great outdoors. So, even though the city is small, it doesn’t feel like the entire population is right on top of each other.
Hansville’s many beaches offer amazing views. Aside from being right on the Puget Sound, residents also enjoy views of Whidbey Island, Admiralty Inlet, and even the iconic Olympic Mountain Range. There are lots of vantage points for watching all the boat traffic along the Sound, as well. So, even during the colder months when you wouldn’t want to get in the water, it’s still worth walking along the coast to take in the natural landscapes in every direction.
Another fun feature of the beaches in Hansville is that it’s not uncommon to see fishers catching salmon right from the shore. For those who enjoy the fantastic taste of fresh, wild-caught salmon, nothing could be better than having access to a fishing area so close to home.
There is also Foulweather Bluff beach. You’ll need a boat to get to it because there are no upland access points, but it’s only about a half-mile from where you can launch. Locals and tourists regularly visit this area to go clam and oyster hunting.
If you don’t have a boat, though, don’t worry. Any beach in Hansville will make it reasonably easy to find delectable shellfish. The Puget Sound is known all over the world for its clean, temperate waters, which provide perfect habitats for these tasty little creatures. As long as you purchase a permit, you can scoop them right out of the water to then prepare them at your house in Hansville.
Kayaking is extremely popular among the residents here. You can take your vessel out into the Sound, or you can paddle down two incredible trails that run nearby:
Of course, there’s plenty to explore on land, too. Hansville offers no shortage of trails and parks, whether you’re looking for exercise or a great place for a picnic. Your options include:
By far, the most popular location in all of Hansville is the Point No Point Lighthouse, which is a National Historic Site. As we covered earlier, the park surrounding the lighthouse is excellent for birdwatching, but it also offers perhaps the best panoramic view of the Puget Sound and Admiralty Inlet. If you’re lucky, you may even catch sight of some of the local marine life. Harbor porpoises and river otters often swim close to shore, but as it’s right on the Whale Trail, you might even spot an orca or a humpback whale.
Another great thing about living in Hansville for nature lovers is that the city’s location means it sees some of the lowest levels of rainfall in the entire area. The town experiences less precipitation than the country’s average, just 31 inches a year compared to 38.
So, if you’re someone who loves the Pacific Northwest’s natural surroundings, you won’t have to worry about rain always keeping you inside, like it often does throughout much of Washington.
Also, as far as snow goes, Hansville only sees about two inches a year, compared to 28 throughout the rest of the country. Winters rarely gets below 40 degrees, making them relatively moderate and certainly not severe enough that you couldn’t get outside for hikes.
Despite the size of the city, there are a number of homes for sale in Hansville. This includes houses for people looking to live in Hansville year-round and those who want a seasonal home they can visit whenever the weather suits their favorite activities.
There are plenty of lots open for building, too. Many of these include coastal views with backdrops featuring Mt. Baker, the Cascades, and the Hood Canal. The vast majority of both lots and homes are tucked back into wooded areas, which gives you lots of privacy and beautiful natural settings to enjoy with your family and friends.
Though many people come to Hansville to retire or relocate after becoming empty nesters, the variety of schools in the area means it can also be a great place to raise children.
