The epitome of the Pacific Northwest’s beauty and charm is nestled in the heart of University Place with this captivating masterpiece! Built in 1964 and featuring a delightful fusion of NW Contemporary and Asian-inspired elements, this rare residence shows off beautifully designed surprises at every turn. The 2,804-square-foot layout includes 4 bedrooms, 2.75 baths, and generous entertaining spaces, and you’ll also find a workshop and picturesque gardens on the 0.37-acre property. Located at 4707 66th Ave W University Place, WA 98466 and less than one mile to Bridgeport Way, this one-of-a-kind gem is listed for $499,500.
Gorgeous landscaping and mature greenery greet you as soon as you pull in the driveway, and the home’s secluded beauty begins to truly unfold once you reach the front entryway. The Zen-inspired entryway features an exquisite Japanese maple at center stage, and as soon as you step inside, the inviting living room beckons. Hemlock ceilings with exposed beams stretch on overhead, refinished oak floors shimmer in the abundant natural light, and the Montana limestone fireplace anchors this lodge-worthy space. Floor-to-ceiling windows frame the lush outdoor scene, showing off dreamy views to be enjoyed along with the warmth of the fireplace.
The layout flows into the dining room, and here you’ll find sliding doors on each side of the room. When opened, you have instant al fresco dining, perfect on warm summer days! The kitchen awaits right around the corner, and here you’ll find unique design and top-notch efficiency. Generous cabinetry and island carts promise lots of storage (don’t miss the secret “locker” in the tile countertop!), and large tile and marble countertops offers ample space to spread out on. You’ll also find helpful under cabinet lighting, and a skylight that brightens up the space even more.
This home’s layout features 4 versatile bedrooms, each one offering something a little different. One bedroom on the lower level includes a stunning accent wall that shows off a beautiful outdoor scene, and one bedroom boasts a skylight and a built-in desk. The not-to-miss master suite is also in the dynamic mix, and this particular haven of relaxation also includes double closets and an attached ¾ bath.
Even more flexible space can be found in the finished basement—cozy carpets and a gas fireplace ensure this retreat is perfect for snuggling up in, and huge picture windows offer a front row seat to one of Mother Nature’s best shows! Step out onto the patio to immerse yourself in the tranquil scene—a “Devil Chasing Bridge” leads across the idyllic pond, and ambient lighting leads you through the scenic pathways, past granite, stone lanterns, and lace leaf maples that range from 50 to 90 years old. A gazebo offers a beautiful spot to gather around a fire pit on a chilly evening, or you might choose to cover the fire pit with the tabletop and play games or enjoy afternoon tea. Plus, you’ll also find a workshop and RV/boat parking to take advantage of as well.
