A Village in the woods by the bay

Port Ludlow is a beautiful and unique place, situated around Port Ludlow Bay at a latitude where tall evergreen trees come right down to the water's edge. click to view the main 'About Port Ludlow' page

Although Port Ludlow is described as an active retiree community, approximately 13% of the population is under 19, and the medium age of a Port Ludlow resident is in the late 50s (see demographics).

Port Ludlow is almost exclusively residential. The original developer built a few groups of homes or condominiums based on the same or similar floor plans, but most of the houses in Port Ludlow are custom homes. Over 80% of the buildings in Port Ludlow are single family residences; about 1% are commercial, and the remainder are condominiums plus a few townhomes.

Port Ludlow includes the first community in Washington State designated as a "Master Planned Resort" (MPR) . Almost all the homes in Port Ludlow which are in the MPR belong to one of several homeowners associations click for information on Government in Port Ludlow

There are homes in Port Ludlow with settings for every homeowner's taste.

Port Ludlow Bay is lined with waterfront homes. Most are 'medium-bank' or medium-high bank. The waterfront townhomes on Burner Point are no bank. Some of the homes on the south side of Port Ludlow Bay have beach access with their own docks. The hills that slope up from the bay on both the north and south sides contain homes with waterviews and views of the Cascades or Olympics. Abundant trees frame views and provide privacy without blocking the vistas.

Commonly maintained greenbelts run though the Port Ludlow MPR. Homes which are a few blocks from the water next to the greenbelts enjoy the extra space. Some are nestled into the trees, some gaze into the well-kept woods from small sunny meadows, and others look out over the tops of a sea of peaceful trees, perhaps with either Puget Sound in the distance or the Olympics towering over the canopy.

The Port Ludlow golf course is lined with houses and condominiums which enjoy views of golfers and/or manicured landscaping. There are homes which overlook the marina. There are lots of of South Bay homes within an easy walking distance to the Bay Club, and many North Bay homes that are less than a five minute walk to the Beach Club.

If you'd prefer not to be part of a homeowners association or the MPR, but want to be in the Port Ludlow area, there are also areas outside the MPR which are known as Ludlow North and Ludlow South. click to view more information about Port Ludlow's location
