Chico Beach Cottages - Silverdale, WA

Contemporary Puget Sound waterfront living at pristine Chico Beach Cottages.

Chico Beach Cottages are located just south of historic old-town Silverdale in Kitsap County Washington, and overlook pristine Dyes Inlet waterfront.

Nature plays a key role at Chico Beach, with stunning views of Mt. Rainer & Dyes Inlet from each home, the commons area gazebo, and the Commons building. Just outside your front door you can stroll the community's private beach, perfect for launching a kayak or canoe. The Cottage Company’s® signature lush garden courtyard is the centerpiece of this community and perfect for meeting neighbors and growing your favorite herbs or perennials.

These gracious cottages are arranged in an intimate enclave of only seven detached homes, each enjoying mountain and water views. The two- and three-bedroom beach-front homes are designed to enable single level living with main floor ensuite master bedroom, and are artfully arranged, each sharing the 150' of Dyes Inlet private beach.

Chico Beach Cottages were selected to receive the Builders Choice Grand Award for single family community at the 32nd annual Builders Choice Design & Planning Awards in 2012. The award-winning architectural design incorporates large windows, vaulted ceilings, light-filled spaces, interior wood paneling and a high level of detail throughout. The homes are third-party-verified Built Green 4-Star and Energy Star certified.

Chico Beach Cottages was completed and SOLD OUT in 2012. Sign up here to be notified of resale opportunities in the community.

Chico Beach Cottages were designed by Wenzlau Architects, Charlie Wenzlau, AIA. Read more about Chico Beach here: Design Intent for Chico Beach Cottages!
