The Earl and Adele Kent complex, built around 1945, consists of two houses and extensive landscaping on the east side of Budd Inlet. Originally there was a one-story brick house here, and the Kents (owners of Olympic Ice Cream) added another home, also one story, in a contemporary design. The second story of the main house, shown here, was added in 1999. The buildings have undergone extensive changes and are inventoried but not on the local register.
