Sound Views + Undeveloped Eastern (back) Portion of Lot

Olympic Drive is a coveted street in University Place. Expect to drive slow and waive to walkers and their pups who are on a leisurely stroll. You’ll encounter walkers at most any time of the day and for good reason. The views are incredible, street quiet and neighbors friendly.

The eastern portion of the lot is heavily treed. Stairs from the back patio lead you to the back portion of the lot where you’ll find a sea of wild flowers and (if you don’t spook them!) local deer. From the most eastern portion of the lot, views of the water and roofline are clearly visible through the trees. Pitch a tent or just a blanket, It is a unique space with incredible views and privacy that’s hard to believe you can experience in the heart of the University Place.

Private 14,400 Square Foot Lot (0.331Acres) w/ Mature Landscaping

Beautiful and mature Rhododendrons, Maple Trees, Evergreens and a variety well placed deciduous evergreen shrubs and trees cover the landscape. Tiered western (water) facing portion provides beautiful first impressions. The ground has been recently mulched and manicured. There’s little maintenance required after the bi-annual cleanup. Instead, spend your time taking in the views from your front deck. On that note, let’s go inside!

Main Floor – Renovated Kitchen, Living Space, 2 Bedrooms + Full Bath!

Well appointed and traditional living spaces are amplified by the big views of the Puget Sound. The kitchen was renovated about 5 years ago. New flooring, light fixtures, cabinetry sold stone surfaces and plumbing fixtures were installed. The apron front link and and gas stove are my two favorite features. I imagine myself preparing a meal in this kitchen. The bench to the right of the stove would be a perfect spot for folks to sit and converse – I like that.

The dining room has direct access to the deck. Sharing a meal or beverage while watching the water and waving to your neighbors as some walk by for their afternoon or morning stroll. This is a pretty sweet spot here; lifestyle and location are prime.

Two bedrooms and bathroom face north/east. The corner bedroom is the larger of the two and has incredible natural lighting and feel; the corner windows, fresh paint and quality oak Hardwood floors complete the space. The second bedroom is has sliding door access to your back patio and sweet built-ins that make for a perfect home office.

Finished Basement = 3rd & 4th Bedroom (with views!) + 2nd Full Bath & Laundry

Newly installed Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP) Floors, freshly painted walls, double pane vinyl windows and endless views of the Puget that never get old. In true 1950’s fashion, the primary bedroom downstairs is lined with knotty pine. Prefer not to have your bedroom in the basement? No problem, this room functions well as a second living space. Both gas fireplaces were upgraded about 5 years ago. Come September most of us will be ready for a break from the sun. Dreaming of our Pumpkin Spice latte’s and cozy sweats so we curl up by the fireplace and relax. But for now, the front deck and sun rays will keep us comfortably warm.
