“One thing we’ll miss the most is seeing the water reflection from the pool dancing on the ceiling! We installed raised beds for vegetables that have built-in sprinklers. There’s blueberry bushes and wonderful landscaping that blooms different times of the year to keep it fresh looking.”

“We’ve enjoyed this location because of the easy access to the freeway and Sounder train for commuting. We love walking across the bridge to the trail that runs along the river.”

“When dining out nearby we go to Sorci’s! They have great pizza, stuffed peppers and a good wine list.”
