There are many things to boast of when it comes to this house! First, you have the location. You are close to many parks, lakes, and places to eat. Wonderwood Park is 2 min away, you have Rainier Vista Park, and Mullen Road Habitat Reserve nearby. As if that weren’t enough nature to explore close by, you also have Chambers Lake Park, and Hicks Lake.

For a nice beer and burger, the seller recommends checking out Pints and Quarts. If you’re a fan of Starbucks like myself, there is one close by!

“We love how quiet the neighborhood is, close to parks and lakes, family friendly, pet friendly, very close to many amenities, and close to I5…I am going to miss the large living room with high ceilings with all the natural light which has been fantastic for entertaining. Being able to watch the Lacey fireworks from the upstairs bedrooms. Knowing we are so close to schools, many amenities, and having so much room in that home.”

Second, you have the space itself. There were many updates done that make this home feel modern and new! Right as you enter the space, you are greeted by tall, vaulted ceilings, which open up to the second story. It feels so bright and clean, with all of the windows in the space, and the interior paint that was done in 2016- it still looks fresh and beautiful!

“When we first saw this home we really liked the neighborhood, how clean it was, quiet, family friendly, pet friendly, and how close it was to things around town. Then when we went inside the high ceilings in the living room with all the natural light and how updated it was, we just fell in love with it.” -Seller

The vaulted ceilings expand up to the second floor. 

The fireplace makes the space feel warm and welcoming.

I personally love how you can see the trees out of the living room windows. Feels very Pacific Northwest!

The layout of the main floor is open concept; you feel connected to the entire space whether you are in the living room, kitchen, or dining space. The seller enjoyed hosting friends in this space.

“Some of our happy memories in the home are having my husbands soldiers over for a BBQ and being able to entertain in the backyard with a large patio and then still having it right by the kitchen and living room. We always felt connected to our guests.”

The dining space is located right off of the kitchen. You can fit a large table in that space!

The kitchen was updated in 2016 and it has a modern, bright, and clean feel.

Stainless steel appliances stay with the home! I love the tile in the kitchen.

It is nice that you can be cooking in the kitchen, but still see into the living room.

Cute bar in the kitchen to drink coffee at, chat with the chef, or get some work done.

The kitchen is a nice size- there are many cabinets for storage!

First bathroom is located on the main level. 

All of the bedrooms are located upstairs…

The master bedroom is located at the top of the stairs. 

The bedroom is large, with skylights, and a big bathroom and walk-in closet.

Again with the lovely view of the trees out of the windows. 

Master bedroom has this spacious bathroom! The double sinks are lovely.

Who doesn’t like a big walk-in closet? 

The two other bedrooms are located on the other side of the home…

You can view the Lacey fireworks show from the two upstairs bedrooms.

There are two bathrooms upstairs, one in the master, and one near the two additional bedrooms.

 The backyard feels private, and woodsy. The sellers enjoyed watching their pup play in the yard, while they hung out on the patio, ” My husband and I loved sitting out in the back patio in the morning enjoying our morning coffee and having our dog play outside.” 

Large, attached two car garage! The furnace and water heater are easily accessible.
