As you pass through the flagstone entry of this NW Contemporary home you are greeted by gleaming Cumaru, Brazilian teak, hardwood floors, a floor to ceiling stone wood burning fireplace, cedar wrapped walls, and floor to ceiling windows and glass sliders leading to the pool deck. This intimate space is the perfect mixture of indoor / outdoor entertaining. 

Step out onto the aggregate pool deck and relish in the privacy the 1.02 acre lot provides. There is endless fun to be had playing in the inground pool, or take a dip in the spa to unwind. The wooded lot makes you feel as though you are miles from town, even though it's a 7 minute drive to Lakewood Town Center which offers a mix of 40 stores of retail, restaurants, services, and entertainment. 

As you draw yourself away from the allure of the sparkling pool you'll find the fully renovated kitchen with new elegant dark wood cabinets topped with quartz counters. The handsome brick accent wall neatly tucks the exhaust fan away, and provides accent lighting above the range/oven. Stainless steel appliances are included with the home! 

Stylish stainless steel under mount sink overlooks the pool making it easy to keep an eye on the outdoor activities while preparing meals. 

The kitchen flows effortlessly into the dining room with a built in buffet that overlooks the entry. 

This is the ideal entertaining space with a painted brick wood burning fireplace opposite the brick accent wall tying the rooms together. There is ample space for large gatherings both inside and out. 

Just past the kitchen there is a convenient 1/2 bathroom (not pictured) that has been renovated as well as laundry room with extra storage. 

The private master suite overlooks the pool, open the glass slider and go for a swim just steps from the bedroom! 

The master bathroom has been stunningly remodeled. Dual vanities with coordinating quartz counters, tile floors, and a contemporary tile shower with a rainfall shower head. 

Exterior view of the deck off the master suite. Place some large planters with tall grasses for additional privacy. You can expect regular visits from deer, porcupines, and owls, you are enveloped in nature. 

Step down from the pool deck and out onto the expansive and private yard, which the current owner will miss the most. 

"There is nothing more adventurous for a kid than a wide open space that butts up against a truly natural setting. As a parent, I have always enjoyed that the yard provides some safe room to roam."  

While exploring the 1.02 acre lot you'll find both cherry and apple trees, no need to visit your local U-pick when you have fresh fruit growing right in your backyard! There is ample space to add more fruit trees and develop a mini orchard for yourself, or add some raised beds. 

Brush up on your golf swing at home so you can play a round at one of the three golf courses that offer entirely different golfing experiences. Fort Steilacoom Golf Course is the perfect place to begin with a 9 hold course with an option to play 18! Meadow Park Golf Course has been a fixture in South Tacoma for nearly 100 years and offers a 18 hole course as well as a family friendly 9 hole course. And of course, Chambers Bay, the site of the 2015 U.S. Open, offering a challenging 18 hole course with breathtaking views of the Puget Sound, and Olympic Mountains

Located on a private road with neighboring lots being a minimum of 1 acre you don't have to worry about any noisy neighbors.  

Dower Elementary School is a quick 5 minute walk away and you're 20 minutes from Joint Base Lewis McCord's main gate making commuting a breeze.
