The Chandler House is situated on the east shore of Budd Inlet, just south of Priest Point Park. It was built around 1920 by Elbert Chandler, an engineer who was responsible for many of the  irrigation projects that transformed Eastern Washington into an important agricultural center in the 1920s and 1930s. The home is in the  Dutch Colonial style popular in that era, and is well  maintained. The home is on the local register.
