So much more than a rambler, this is a complete custom remodel with workshop space galore! A detached garage and a newly built shop with 2 garage bays are waiting for your boat-building projects, your hobbies, your storage needs, vehicles, toys, and tools. The lovingly remodeled rambler and outbuildings are set on 0.79 fully-fenced, freshly-seeded, graded acres with RV parking, 2 gated driveways, and tons of garden space. You’ll find a huge lawn, a covered patio, outdoor outlets to power the RV or a hot tub, and so much room to garden, let the dogs run, or kids play.
Inside, new skylights brighten the open living area where new engineered hardwood flooring, windows, fixtures, and appliances shine. Find granite counters in the kitchen as well as 2 of the bathrooms, a big pantry, a new water heater and electric heat pump for heating or air conditioning. French doors open from the dining room to the patio, and a family room designed with game nights in mind is just a step down from the main living space. This home is set with 3 separate bathrooms including a 3/4 bath private en suite and a Jacuzzi tub in the full bath.
This home and all its amenities are set on the quiet country end of Tacoma, but it’s easy as pie to get to town. As the homeowners put it, “Everything’s right here, but you get a little elbow room.” That sounds pretty good. Reach Downtown Tacoma in under 15 minutes and get to Downtown Puyallup in 10 or less.

Living & Dining
You’ve seen the list of updates, and you’ve gotten a glimpse of some of the rooms in this remodeled rambler. When you step inside you’ll feel the pride of ownership. You’ll see the care and attention given to this home. Through hard work, time, and determination, these homeowners (only the 2nd in the history of the home) transformed this house into a bright, open, comfortable place to gather, rest, and play. Here in the living room skylights let the sun shine in on glossy acacia engineered hardwood floors. Smooth coat ceilings create a clean canvas and classic simplicity. Wooden blinds are at the ready if you’d like to dim the light or increase privacy.
The new electric heat pump serves as an air conditioner in the warmer months and keep things cozy in the cool ones, while the skylights and recessed LED lighting ensure there’s always plenty of light.
Enjoy meals pulled up to the bar counter in the kitchen or set the dining table and take in the back yard view through the French doors.
From a full set of stainless appliances to the tile back splash above the stain and heat resistant granite slab counters, to the undermount sink, this is a quality kitchen ready for all your cooking, baking, and entertaining. Guests, friends, and family can pull up a stool for a chat or a snack while you fix meals, and you can keep an eye on what’s happening in the living room. The new slow-close cabinets never slam and have more drawers than you’d expect; open a few cupboard doors and find pull-outs for keeping kitchen tools organized. Two skylights and a window over the sink keep things feeling bright and open while blown glass pendant lights cheer up the bar counter.
See those dark gray closet doors just outside the kitchen in the photo above? That’s a deep closet with more shelves for pots, pans, and pantry needs. But just wait, there’s an entire big, walk-in pantry where you can seriously stock-up on all your essentials.
Here it is: the renovated garage transformed into a family room where all the football parties happen. Professionally stained and polished concrete floor, a storage bench doubling as a second seating tier high enough so the people at the back can see over the heads on the couch, and plenty of space for a big screen.
This family room is just 3 steps down from the living room and you’ll see a door in the photo below that opens into the pantry area. That all connects through to the kitchen, completing the circular flow of the living space.
En Suite Bedroom with 3/4 Private Bath
Down the hall from the living room find the bedrooms and 2 of the home’s bathrooms. This is the en suite bedroom complete with a private 3/4 bath and a large walk-in closet. Remember those French doors in the dining area? There have been dreams of adding a second set here that would open right out to the area that’s all prepped for a hot tub. It’s up to you.
The private 3/4 bath is all set with a new granite-top vanity, new toilet, and a stall shower where the water’s heated by that new energy efficient/digital hot water tank.
2 Additional Bedrooms
Along with the en suite bedroom, there are 2 additional bedrooms both with new windows, wooden blinds, acacia engineered hardwood floors, and easy access the full bath in the hall. These are comfortable rooms with good sized closets. Depending on your family size, you might find yourself using the 3rd bedroom as an office, playroom, craft room, studio space, or guest room.
Additional Bathrooms & Laundry
The full bathroom is in the hall with the bedrooms and is also easily accessible from the living room. And it doesn’t have just any old bathtub. When it’s time for a soak you’ll do it in a Jacuzzi tub with an inline heating system installed in 2017. You can get a glimpse of the tiled shower/bath in the mirror of the photo above. This bathroom also comes with a new granite-top vanity, and new toilet.
The laundry room, found just off the kitchen, is the access point for the 3rd bathroom in the home. This is a 3/4 bath with a shower stall and toilet. You’ll find the sink just outside the door between the washer and dryer. This laundry room is at the back of the house overlooking the back yard and connects through to the pantry.
This is not your ordinary cupboard pantry. Rather than a closet with a few shelves, this pantry is its own room. There’s space to stock up and store in here. There’s also space for additional refrigerators, and keep in mind it’s just a few steps down to the family room, so game night snacks are never far from the action.
Outbuildings & Grounds
This big 0.79 acre lot includes 2 gated driveways, paved parking, covered patio, RV parking, concrete pad/privacy screen/wiring for a hot tub. And there’s so much workshop space. Both a detached garage with lean-to and upper storage area, and a new shop with 2 bay doors offer plenty of opportunities for all kinds of projects from boat building to auto projects, to woodworking, storage, and anything you can think of.
The covered patio offers a nice shady spot for barbecues and things are all set and wired for your friends and family to pull up in an RV and stay a while.
The lot has been graded and seeded so the big lawn space is level and healthy. There’s lots of room for kids to play, pets to run, or for getting up to all kinds of games and activities at big family parties. With those parties in mind, you might enjoy the fire pit for roasting s’mores, and the horseshoe pit for passing the afternoon.
A hedge is all planted and on its way to increase privacy and shade, and there are at least 4 apple trees on the property, as well as garden beds bordering the house where you’ll find rhododendrons, peonies, and lily of the valley. And there’s plenty of opportunity for further gardening with all that space.
This property offers so much more than a city lot. Even with 2 outbuildings and driveways, there’s still room to grow, build, and breathe. But it’s easy to get where you want to go. If your working days aren’t done, you can get to work in Puyallup in as little as 10 minutes, or into downtown Tacoma in 15.
Grocery stores are handy, and the current homeowners have been known to make roundtrip airport pick-ups in an hour and 10 minutes. There’s one of the best nurseries in the area just 4 minutes from the house, and a seasonal farmers’ market to enjoy in nearby Puyallup.
Get up to hockey games at the ShoWare Center in Kent about 30 minutes from home, or go explore the mixed-use trails on foot, horseback, or mountain bike at Orange-gate park up the road.
