Here you’ll find a one-level home with a sunny disposition in sought-after University Place. Lovely, park-like grounds boast a backyard so big and flat you might mistake it for a soccer pitch! Bordered by a tidy hedge, there’s also a covered patio for entertaining, and a shed for extra storage out back. Inside, the unique maple hardwood floors brighten each living space. Upgrades include high-quality double pane windows, custom blinds, and a newly renovated bathroom with a tile shower. Lots of options for off-street parking plus an enclosed (attached?) garage and carport. Not quite a 5-minute drive, to coveted UP schools, Whole Foods, Curran Orchard, and iconic Chambers Bay — there’s no better place for year-round outdoor fun. Welcome home!


You can look forward to being less than 3 miles from the Chamber’s Bay Trail & Golf Course - The trailhead is only 3.25 miles round trip, but the hills have a serious incline. The views of the Olympic Mountains will reward your efforts! If you enjoy golf – Chamber’s Bay Golf Course is one of the top courses in the nation and the first course in the Northwest to welcome the U.S. Open Championships. Their onsite restaurant – The Grill offers a nice weekend brunch and sunset dinners.

Just 5 minutes away from The University Place Town Center where you can shop at Whole Foods, get coffee and more at Anthem Coffee & Tea, Top Pot Doughnuts, check out 80,000 books, movies, audiobooks, and more at the University Place Library, grab small-batch ice cream at Bliss Ice Cream, get wraps and subs at Jersey Mike’s Subs, Pure Barre, Orange Theory Fitness and MOD Pizza.

You’ll also find the Green Firs Towne Center just a few minutes away too - Safeway, Starbucks, Sapporo Japanese Steakhouse, Home Goods, Trader Joe’s, Mud Bay, Gyro Zone, and Fresh Rolls, Soggy Doggy, and the Hand & Stone Massage Spa.

If you’re looking for an alternative health and wellness option for any aches and pains, the DAM Performance Cryotherapy & Recovery may have just what you need. They specialize in pain management for all to help the body recover and feel rejuvenated.

Living in the area means you’re in the University Place School district like Sunset Elementary and Curtis Jr. & Senior High School and Charles Wright Academy.
