Situated on the corner and looking out into an open field, filled with evergreen trees, this home is oh so cozy inside and out! An ideal home for book lovers to cozy up in the winter around the fireplace and store your impressive collection of books on the built in shelves. Or grab a book and relax in a warm bath in the jetted tub situated in the master bedroom.
This home is in such close proximity to some of the best parks and trails around, along with plenty of amenities too! Just inside of the community along Seneca Street is a little neighborhood trail that winds around a small pond and connecting to Kettle View Park. This 4.8 acre park offers a playground and swings, tennis court, restrooms and a picnic shelter. If you’d rather play indoors, the Brigg’s South Sound YMCA backs up to it.
You’ll never have to go far to get a little laid back fishing in, as Ward Lake is 2 miles away. Fishing is available around the bank of the lake, but there is also a boat launch on the east side. This lake is primarily home to Rainbow Trout and Kokanee, but you may also catch Bluegill, Largemouth bass and Rock bass.
Just a couple of minutes away is Pints Barn is the place to go for craft beer, cocktails and really good bar food. Meet up with friends to share the Cougar Gold Cheese Board, or stuff yourself with the Tubin the Chutes sandwich, loaded with ham, pastrami, provolone, lettuce, tomatoes, onion, banana peppers and a saucy horse radish mustard & mayo. They also have a great list of other appetizers, salads, sandwiches and burgers. If you’re looking for something a little classier, Pellegrino’s Italian Kitchen is the spot for fine italian dining. They’ve got all the classics; their fresh clam linguine is AMAZING! They also have meals to go that serves 4 if you’re having company and don’t want to cook - $45 for entree, soup or salad and an appetizer - such an amazing deal! BONUS - they serve really good breakfast on the weekend from 8 AM - 2 PM.
Then take a stroll along the Tumwater Falls Park & Trail - a riverside nature park on 15 acres with trails, cascades, lawns & a children’s play area. This scenic loop trail runs along the Deschutes River and three cascading waterfalls. The waterfall is impressive this time of year with the vast rainfalls that fill it up. Another popular local spot is the Watershed Park - just a mile away and has lush forest canopy and a trail system that includes steep sections of trail with steps and boardwalks over wetlands. Deep in the park is the Moxlie Creek Springs Basin, one of the largest spring basins in the region.
There’s only one place to go in town that is THE pizza spot and that’s Vics Pizzeria! Locally owned since 1999, with fresh ingredients and pizza dough that’s made fresh everyday. They’ve got a nice thick crust on their pizza to hold all the delicious toppings, it’s like getting a bread stick on the last few bites.
The schools in this district are very close proximity to this home, all 8 minutes or less. Pioneer Elementary and the Olympia High School are adjacent to each other and Washington Middle School is just a few blocks over.
For more dining and shopping options, you’re just minutes from downtown Olympia and the Capital Mall.
This location is great for anyone that needs to commute too! The onramp to I-5 and Hwy 101 is very close.
