A home this lovingly maintained is a rare find and this private wooded retreat with cedar shingles, a big deck, and 2.8 acres has never been sold. This well-built manufactured home has seen constant care and improvement from its original owners. Surrounded by forest, lawn, orchard, and beautiful garden beds, the setting is peaceful and quiet. Light fills the spotless interior with its vaulted ceilings and new skylights all under a roof just 2 years old. The living space is open and bright, but you can still find cozy corners. And there are so many windows! From the pretty bay windows in the front sitting room, to the wall of windows in the family room looking out over the big back lawn and into the lively green undergrowth, this house is never short of natural light.

It’s a perfect blend of comfort, updates, and vintage charm, like wainscot and a farmhouse sink. An en suite bedroom offers a private full bath with an oval tub and separate shower as well as French doors to the garden. One of the best things about living here is settling into the living room looking at nature, or sitting out in the fresh air on the back deck listening to the birds.

Outside there’s a 2-car carport with an 8’ x 20’ workshop and a 6’ x 16’ lean-to, as well as an 8’ x 12’ mower shed. There’s plenty of additional parking in the gravel drive, as well as room for an RV. It takes about an hour to mow the grounds and you’ll like hearing that the riding lawn mower is included in the sale of the home. Along with the big lawn, gravel paths, porch swing, fruit trees, and lovely landscaped beds, there are trails through the wooded acres. Take a quiet stroll, play capture the flag, or take a cue from this family and go wild with your Easter egg hunts.

You’ll find this home on the Key Peninsula in the South Salish Sea, just 3 minutes down the road from Palmer Lake (but outside the HOA zone, so no fees). There are two different state parks, both with saltwater beaches within 10 minutes of home. You’ll feel you’re out and away, but it’s only 15 minutes to Key Center for groceries, or just over half an hour to extensive shopping opportunities (as well as restaurants, more parks, and more marinas) in Gig Harbor. Wondering how far out you are from Tacoma? You’ll find out in our dedicated location section further on.

The living space is beautifully open, but still provides cozy corners. The chandelier lends whimsy to the dining area where a large or small table is right at home. Just do what works for you!

Living Room & Entry

From the graveled front walk and garden, a friendly front door welcomes you into the entry area of this 3 bedroom home. But first take a moment to enjoy the fresh air from the swing, and image blossoming vines twining the pergola. Okay, now you can step inside.

The freshly painted front room is welcoming and bright with its bay windows, wainscot, stove, and vaulted ceiling. You’ll find the en suite bedroom with private full bath on your right when you come inside. This room is a wonderful greeting place for guests who can hang their coats on a rack or in the coat closet just around the corner. The bay windows show green, green, green. It’s a nice view, rain or shine.

Although the living and dining room are open, the French doors out to the deck, not to mention the delicately decorative chandelier help define the space. A table for 4 looks comfortable in the space, but a big table for family holidays or dinner parties will fit easily in this long room. Don’t worry about space in here, you’re all set to entertain, or keep it casual and cozy, whatever fits your needs.

Kitchen

This kitchen is a beauty. With a window overlooking the back yard, a farmhouse sink, mini subway tile backsplash, and easy access to either the laundry room or the living and dining area. Pull a stool up to the kitchen bar counter for breakfast or a chat with the cook. This kitchen is all redone with a bright skylight, fresh counters, new cabinets and appliances (except for the stove which is a wonderful wide range with a griddle and warming oven!).

This is the room where you get settled for board games, or football games, or movie nights, or snuggle up to read a book surrounded by the quiet of the trees outside. There’s plenty of floor space for stretching out. Ceiling fans above keep the air comfortable and one of the home’s full bathrooms is just a few steps away. Don’t miss how nice and wide the window sills are in this house - a good feature if you like to set plants there for light. Or keep them clear and clutter free.

The family room is cozy here at the far side of the house, but it never feels cramped. The 2nd full bath is just a few steps away, and its easy to get some space and still keep an eye of the family or guests no matter where you are.

While the house is comfortably tucked in near the privacy of the woods on one end, it still enjoys so much open space around it, which means lots of light inside, and lots of room to play, garden, grow, and breathe.

This home - with its gardens, grounds, and wooded trails - is all set on the Key Peninsula, a narrow strip of land at the southern end of the Salish Sea with public beaches, state parks, small farms, lake communities, and lots of evergreen trees.

There are 3 public elementary schools and 1 public middle school on the peninsula. Students cross the Purdy Spit to attend high school at Peninsula High. You’ll find groceries, a public library, wine shop, restaurants, a post office, and even a nursery for your gardening needs in Key Center, just 15 minutes from home. The post office in Home (a small waterfront community nearby) is even closer though. One of the best parts of living out on the KP is access to innumerable places to put a boat in the water. You’ll find one of those in Home as well, right there at the public boat launch on A Street.

You’ll find playgrounds and ball fields, and opportunities to join in annual festivals like the Key Peninsula Farm Tour or the Art Walk. You can read even more about the Key Peninsula community on our page dedicated to this special location.

The Home public boat launch is a great place to launch an adventure.

For other errands, many peninsula residents drive across the spit to Gig Harbor where Costco, Target, Fred Meyer, and other chains can be found. Many of those amenities are just over half an hour away from this quiet home near Palmer Lake.
