WHAT IS IT LIKE TO LIVE HERE?
The current owner shared a few things that they will miss about this home:
“You’re going to enjoy the personal, private space around the house. Also the immediate neighbors… Various neighborhood annual picnics and events give off that close community feeling. There’s also two delicious apple trees, cherry trees and the sweetest grapes ever. Chicken fenced run and coop for fresh eggs.
Living on the historic Chehalis Western Trail gives you easy access North or South. Beautiful nature walks in all seasons and an easy ride into Lacey for coffee. I use it most for running and distance bike rides. Lots of great restaurants close by, like Hop Jacks, Firecreek Ale House and Farrelli’s. Pellegrino’s is my favorite Italian.”
