Situated in a quiet cul-de-sac, in a small, close knit community, you’ll find a home nearly surrounded by peaceful trees and boasts the serenity you’ve been yearning for. The sellers mentioned that they will really miss enjoying the summers on the back deck, listening to the birds chirp, all among the cool shade of the trees. It doesn’t get too typically warm in the summers, but you’ll be thankful for the tower of trees when temps do touch in the 80’s.

There’s also an abundance of daylilies that pop up and other perennials in the yard every year, which will be a nice, colorful surprise to the landscaping, along with a lush rhododendron bush in the front yard.

This location is ideal too - close to the water and less than 2 miles from the Chamber’s Bay Trail & Golf Course - The trail head is only 3.25 miles round trip, but the hills have a serious incline. The views of 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.

The Curran Apple Orchard, a community delight, is a mile away and has become a local hobby for many. There are over 200 apple trees with more than 15 varieties. Every summer, locals look forward to the Cider Squeeze, celebrating the years growth. Enjoy a local band, refreshments and pie!

Less than a mile away is the Classic Coffee on Cirque, a local chain offering gourmet coffee drinks in a relaxed setting. Adjacent is the UP Skate Park - with a pre-fab kiddies section, a pre-fab mini ramp/spine set-up and a good size concrete park. It has interconnected bowls varying from 3’ to 9’ in depth and a detached 10’ peanut bowl. There a few rails on the decks and one stair/ hubba / rail, so it’s great for newbies & experienced skaters.

Plenty of place to dine out too! The seller mentioned that these are their top places to go when dining out - Spring Lake Cafe in Fircrest for a yummy brunch or The Pine Cone for a classic breakfast.

And if you want to stay in and cook the seller said that Trader Joe’s and Harbor Greens are great places to get fresh fruits and veggies.

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.
