Winter hibernation is over! It’s time to pull out the patio furniture and spend time outdoors. This concrete slab serves as an incredible patio and was previously the foundation of a garage. It could (again) be used as a detached garage. For now, It provide a wonderful spot to picnic, play and enjoy time outside.

This fire pit is a unique attribute of the property. Have your friends over for a bonfire, and s’mores. Or simply use it as a pretty centerpiece to your future home garden. The lawn both in front of the fire pit and behind is level. It is a prime local for pets and kits to play or future gardening galore. 🥕 🥦 The partially fenced yard provides plenty of room for your pups while keeping them away from garden space that might get them into trouble!


When I first walked into this home, I immediately noticed the Oak Hardwood floors, large double pane vinyl windows and space for a dining room table. Call me old school, but I really love having a place to sit down for dinner after a long day. The lighting that naturally filters through the windows is wonderful. When dark, the canned lighting is optimal for lighting up the space.


Kitchen and bathroom were updated in 2015. Simple and clean shaker cabinets, solid surface countertops and stainless steel appliances. The kitchen sink is well positioned, overlooking your backyard. East facing, you don’t receive the glare of the afternoon sun AND you receive great morning light.


The front (west) facing bedroom is simple and sized well. Call me a tree hugger (I don’t mind) – my favorite part about this room is the picture-perfect view of the tree in the front yard 🌳.


The bathroom is located in between the two bedrooms and is fully renovated. All fixtures, flooring and lighting have been upgraded.


The second bedroom has a lot to love. East and South facing windows bring in natural light, while the natural greenery behind the home (east) and cedar fence to the west, give great privacy. The backyard views of this room are lovely.

This renovated University Place Cottage provides you the lifestyle and comforts of home and quality at an affordable price.
