Nicely sited at the end of a tree lined drive above Sunset Beach, this charming 1940’s Traditional bungalow offers a welcome sense of privacy and seclusion with stunning west facing views of the Puget Sound, Fox Island and the Olympic Mountains. The house has undergone an extensive renovation, reflecting a casual sophistication commensurate with its beautifully unique setting. The entry level is reached by passing a through private front courtyard and features new hardwood floors, a living room with wood burning fireplace and honed marble tile surround, an updated kitchen with quartz counters and newer stainless appliances including a down-draft range, a dining area with built-in buffet and a door to the front courtyard, two bedrooms and a full bathroom. Upstairs are two bonus rooms that could easily be used as additional bedrooms or offices. A spacious family room is located on the lower level with a separate office and exercise area along with a second bathroom with a shower and laundry center. This 1/3 of an acre property also includes a detached two car garage, a large front courtyard patio with outdoor fireplace, a rear view deck, a firepit, new landscaping, a new pergola overlooking a creek and beach club membership with access to a private beach and boat house.

The current owners have made significant improvements to the house and grounds since purchase. The scope of work has included all new interior and exterior paint, new flooring throughout the house, new custom radiator covers, a new fireplace hearth and mantel, chimney tuckpointing with spark arrestor/rain cap and a new heating oil tank. The kitchen has been updated with new quartz counters, new tile backsplash and new stainless appliances, including a down draft stove. The main floor bathroom has been updated with new tile flooring and shower surround, new toilet and new pedestal sink. The lower level has been finished, including the addition of a second bathroom and laundry center. The garage has essentially been rebuilt with a new roof, new Hardie board siding, new paint, new electrical and a new vehicle door. The grounds have been completely transformed. The front and back yards have both been cleared, grass has been replanted and landscaping and new low voltage lighting have been added.

For those who prefer the comforts and ease of the suburbs, University Place has a lot of appeal. This small city overlooking the waters of the Puget Sound features a number of interconnected neighborhoods served by a mixture of small and large businesses, including Trader Joe’s, Harbor Greens and Whole Foods. University Place is particularly well known for its highly rated public school system. Additional community assets include Chambers Bay, a world class public golf course and site of the 2015 US Open, and Charles Wright Academy, a private K-12. Most of the homes in University Place were built in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, but the housing stock here also includes newer construction.
