Grand Nature Lover’s Retreat

 


ABOUT THE HOME

Meticulously maintained home sits on peaceful cul-de-sac, surrounded by wetlands & trails which provide privacy between you and neighboring homes. Once inside you’re greeted by a grand 9’ entrance. Main floor den flows effortlessly into the gourmet kitchen featuring a sleek, quartz-topped center island. Upstairs is the spacious master with luxurious ensuite bath, three generous sized bedrooms and a large bonus room with vaulted ceilings. 

In addition to the fully fenced yard, another standout exterior feature of this home is the West-facing covered deck. The Seller mentioned that one of the things they will miss about living here are the “amazing sunsets and how the golden light lights up the living room.” They also mentioned that there is currently a Neighborhood Watch in this community. “Our neighbors look after each other which is nice!”

  • 4 bedrooms
  • 2.5 bathrooms

  • 2 – car attached garage
  • Kent School District (Martin Sortun Elem, Meridian Junior High and Kentwood High)

THE NEIGHBORHOOD

This home is not only in beautiful move-in ready condition, but it’s also in an incredibly convenient location, surrounded by things to see and do! As you can see from the video tour, you’re just steps away from Clark Lake, which is a scenic 130-acre park around a lake offering fishing, trails and public art displays. Kent Station, an open air urban village with restaurants, movie theaters, shopping is a 10-minute drive away. The Sounder commuter train also has a stop there. (For longer trips you’ll find that  SeaTac Airport is also just 20 minutes away!) 

In terms of local eateries, the Seller mentioned that they like to order takeout from Grandma Thai (just a 3-minute drive away). They have “good service and delicious Pad See Lew, fried rice, crispy roasted duck with homemade ginger sauce, chicken satay — all reasonably priced!  We also enjoy Thai Chili which just opened their new location – crab fried rice, black sticky pudding and Tom Yum Chicken for those chilly Fall days!”

If you’d rather cook something yourself, the local QFC is a 3-minute drive from home, and  Trader Joe’s, is only a bit further.”

It was about twelve feet above sea level and 50 yards from the low water end of shore. In 1901 the first lighthouse and a house for the lighthouse keeper were built, which today is known as the Browns Point Lighthouse Park – a popular outdoor spot for locals and provides the community waterfront access, enticing beachcombers year round and sunbathers and picnickers during the summer. A large green space makes this a nice spot for a picnic as you watch the deep-sea ships entering Tacoma’s busy portal. It’s also the best spot to watch the fireworks along Commencement Bay on the 4th of July.
