The Open House:

This Saturday, April 14th from 11 am-2 pm, I'm opening up my new listing. Come visit! Get an in-person feel for the layout, location, and character, and ask me questions about the home. I'm happy to help, so come see me this Saturday for a closer look. (Keep reading to check out the neighborhood section of this article and find what's fun to do while you're in the area!) Can't make the open house, but you'd still like to see the home? Call/Text me at 253-226-2787 and we can schedule an appointment!

The Home: 

This bright University Place home presents simple mid-century character with thoughtful updates all in a friendly, community-oriented neighborhood close to parks, shopping, and the Puget Sound. Hardwood floors, a fully finished daylight basement, covered back deck, fireplaces, bathrooms on both floors, gas heat, an attached garage, and a big open backyard are just the beginning. 

Enter to original oak hardwood floors in the living room with its broad brick hearth, open fireplace, and rustic paneling lining the staircase. Two main floor bedrooms with hardwood floors and wood trim are just a step across the hall from the full bathroom. I love the natural touch of the paneled accent wall in the front bedroom bedroom; it definitely brings some original 1950s style to the room! From the dining table, look out through wood-framed sliding glass doors to a covered deck over the large backyard. 

The finished daylight basement makes this home so much bigger than it appears from the street!  You'll find a living room, bonus room, bedroom, 3/4 bathroom, and a separate entrance from the patio in the spacious backyard! There's a second open fireplace surrounded by a cozy brick hearth and bench seat and this entire level is floored in neutral ceramic tile. See more about this home

The Neighborhood:

University Place is a well-loved community on the shores of the Puget Sound just south of the Tacoma Narrows, and North of Steilacoom. University Place is home to highly-rated public schools and the iconic Chambers Bay Golf Course, host of the 2015 US Open. The public course is also home to a waterfront park, a 3.25 mile loop trail (with views across the Sound to the Olympic Mountains), and the Chambers Bay Grill. Image from @chambersbaygolf

Even closer to this beautifully situated home are truly practical amenities such as Whole Foods Market and the University Place Pierce County Library (each just about 1/2 a mile away). Incidentally, you'll also see Top Pot Doughnuts right there between the library and Whole Foods, but we're not sure if you really want to know that. Don't forget our locally owned grocery either; Harbor Greens is less than a mile north on Bridgeport and it's a wonderful source for fresh produce, nursery items like flowering baskets, wine, and it's a nice spot to sit and have lunch! Trader Joe's is also just about a 5 minute drive away, so there really are a big handful of lovely grocery options within reach. This home is also near Titlow Beach Park and other sweet destinations on Tacoma's westside waterfront

So you might as well have a doughnut and coffee, eat some lunch, take a walk, or enjoy a brew while you're over here. I hope you enjoy this house and its great community!
