Miller Bay Estates

Miller Bay Estates is a neighborhood community East of Poulsbo comprised of 383 homes (as of 11/11/2011), though it is actually much closer to Indianola than Poulsbo.  Most people in the area consider it a de facto part of Poulsbo, and because it does have a Poulsbo address,  I’m including it in our Poulsbo neighborhood sections.  The average year built for a home in Miller Bay Estates is 1988 and the Median Year built is 1990.  About 73% of the homes here are 1-story ramblers (some with basements) and about 25% of the homes are Split-Foyer floor plans.  The remainder are 1 1/2 story 2 story or multi-level.

The community has some nice amenities and the Home Owner Dues are quite nominal considering the benefits.  There are several community parcels, a community park, swimming pool (open in the Summer), club house and they also have beach property on Miller Bay.

There are CCR’s for the community but they are reasonable and a unique aspect to the rules, is that a couple of subdivisions within Miller Bay Estates allows Manufactured Homes.  There is no sewer infrastructure, so all homes here have Septic Systems but they all have PUD Water.

Here are some recent photos of the community & neighborhood including the community center, playground and community pool.

*It’s important to note that while both the Tax Assessed Valuations and the Auto Valuation Models can be instructive about home values, these numbers may not be keeping pace in real time with what is actually occurring in the market at any given time. The AVM, values are calculated more recently than the Tax Assessed Values, but they are based largely upon a statistical sample and do not reflect special individual home features, upgrades or undocumented unique characteristics. The true market value is dependent primarily upon the recent most comparable sales, and then appropriate adjustments made. The best way to obtain the current value of your home without paying for a full appraisal is to contact your Real Estate Broker and ask for a current CMA. If you don’t have a Broker you prefer, or one are currently working with, my partner Jana Salmans or myself would be very happy to assist you. Just give us a call or e-mail us, our contact information can be found at the top main menu and we will be happy to assist you.
