Quintessential Pacific Northwest scenery surrounds this picturesque beauty, and each time you arrive home, this comfortable haven beckons. The front door swings open to reveal a stunning open-concept layout, and soaring ceilings, rich hardwoods, and natural light that cascades in through large windows creates a bright and airy atmosphere. In the chalet-inspired living room, a gorgeous stone-accented gas fireplace is flanked by floor-to-ceiling windows that offer a view of the tranquil greenery outside, and you can snuggle up here on chilly winter nights to enjoy the cozy scene with a cup of hot cocoa in hand. Pure perfection!
From here, the layout seamlessly flows into the dining area and chef-ready kitchen, a dynamic space ready for whipping up culinary feasts whenever the mood strikes. An extra-wide fridge/freezer, a Wolf double oven, a cooktop/broiler, and 42’’ counters all promise top-notch efficiency. Gather around the kitchen island and entertain with ease—playing host while you enjoy the company of guests is a breeze with this ideal layout! (Need more storage for kitchen essentials? The laundry room features more pantry storage, plus a folding counter.)
One of the most highly desired features amongst home buyers right now is versatile square footage, and this home boasts ample flexibility in its tucked away 3 bedrooms, and its loft with a bonus room and office. Within the 3 bedrooms you’ll find the primary suite that includes a walk-in closet and 5-piece ensuite bath, which includes convenient double sinks and a soaking tub ready for indulgent bubble baths. And then just wait until you see the loft… it’s absolutely massive! This space is ready to change and evolve with your needs over time—use it as a home office, a play area, a hobby room, a fitness center, a rec room, and more in the years to come.
The rest of the property is ready to come to life with your unique vision as well. French doors off of the great room open up to an expansive deck, where you can grill up dinner all summer long and host weekend BBQs. The large yard is perfect for letting pets play, and you can keep things simple and as is, or put your green thumb to work growing raised garden beds filled with fresh fruits and veggies, or design beautiful landscaping featuring all of your favorite trees and flowers. The sky’s the limit—especially if you decide to purchase the parcel next door that’s currently for sale as well!
