Do you love looking at water views – whether it’s the glistening ocean, a huge river, a lovely lake, a babbling brook or the gorgeous Puget Sound from a variety of sites including Steilacoom Washington? Any of those send me into a peaceful sense of tranquility. So you can imagine how delighted I was to discover our home this year is about 1/2 mile from where I can enjoy a far distant view of the Puget Sound. Even though it’s quite a ways away, it’s still a joy to behold every time I walk by.
Yesterday, I went to preview a home for sale in the lovely and historic town of Steilacoom. It’s a cute house with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
After I left the home, I drove a short distance away and in the process made two fun discoveries. The first was a nature preserve with walking trails (more on that in the next post).
The second? I found that within 1/2 mile of this home, the owner also has a gorgeous view of the Puget Sound. Not only that, it’s a WAY better view than my neck of the woods!
AND an added bonus, it’s only one mile to the main part of historic Steilacoom where you’ll find the post office, Bair Bistro with its delicious sandwiches and sodas, the city hall, the museum, a bank, the ferry to Anderson and Ketron Islands, several other businesses, and a delightful spot to “sit a spell, and enjoy the vista of blue – the Puget Sound up close and personal,
along with watching the ferry go to and fro.
Isn’t it gorgeous? I must say, I do love the real estate business. It’s full of wonderful clients, interesting homes, intriguing home decor, and delightfully unexpected treats around any and all corners!
P.S. If you are house-hunting in Pierce County, Washington and would be interested in seeing this single story home home in Steilacoom, walking distance to the Puget Sound, and wonderfully located right between DuPont and Lakewood, minutes from JBLM (Joint Base Lewis McChord), and only a short commute to Tacoma or Seattle, do give me a call at 657-229-5293 or email me at Kaye@KayeSwain.com to set up an appointment to see it posthaste. I suspect it won’t be on the market for very long!
