Settle into this fresh, updated 1970s rambler and bring your woodworking projects with you! This house features a detached workshop with space to set up tools and dig into your hobbies (a former homeowner even built boats here). Attached to the home, a garage has been converted into a bonus room and additional workshop space; there are a lot of possibilities for people who spend time building, creating, and fixing. 

Step into the home itself and you're greeted by a cozy wood stove and mantlepiece in the living room laid with clean new carpets. The walls are a fresh bright white, ready for you to add the color furniture and framed family photos bring. Through the living room, enter into a kitchen with big sliding glass doors, numerous cabinets, and new vinyl flooring. It's light and bright with plenty of space for a good kitchen table. A laundry room is conveniently adjacent to the kitchen and leads into the hallway where you'll find the bonus room, complete with shelving for flexible use of space, and 3 cozy, carpeted bedrooms. The full bath is set to go with a nice big mirror over the vanity which offers both cupboards and drawers for storage and an easy-to-clean tub surround. This home is spic-and-span, single floor living. 

Outdoors, fruit trees grow in the back and large evergreens give a woodsy feeling out front. A set of garden beds in the side yard wait to be filled with soil and planted next spring. There's space to garden and play, and plenty of room to continue to develop this yard or leave it as a low-maintenance area for kids and pets. 

The location has an out of town feel, but is conveniently located near several cities. Downtown Port Orchard is just 15 minutes away with shopping, restaurants, and movies (both the weekends-only indie Dragonfly Cinema, and the Regal Cinemas South Sound Cinema 10). Downtown Gig Harbor is a 20 minute drive with only about 12 minutes to a variety of shopping on Borgen Boulevard, including Costco and Target. Even downtown Tacoma is only a 30 minute drive with easy access over the Narrows Bridge. 

If you're a golfer, find the Horseshoe Lake Golf Course just a 6 minute drive from home, with Trophy Lake Gold & Casting Club, and the beautiful Gold Mountain Golf Club just 15 and 20 minutes out. Head over to the Purdy Spit to walk the beach or launch your boat into Henderson Bay. You could also visit Manchester State Park to enjoy getting out of doors for a picnic, or for the views across the sound to Bainbridge Island and Seattle. 

This home is ready and waiting; come take a look!
