Come enjoy a waterfront paradise on beautiful Lake Tapps in South Puget Sound. Centrally located between Seattle and Tacoma, this 2,500 square foot Pierce County home is situated on the northwest shore of the lake.
The house was remodeled in 2013 with new carpet and paint throughout and updated bathrooms. The upper level Master Suite features a queen bed overlooking the lake and adjoins a sumptuous en suite bath with a double shower, soaking tub, and heated tile floor. Two additional bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with two twins, and a full bath complete the upper level.
The downstairs features an open plan family and dining area, a living room with a full-sized pool table, a dining room with table seating six, and a laundry room and a ½ bath. The spacious kitchen offers bar seating for three and has large windows overlooking the deck and lake so you can enjoy the view and keep an eye on your family and friends while preparing meals. An additional table for four sits nearby.
If you tire of spending time on the lake or in the yard, you can always retreat to the family room and relax in front of the flat screen tv or shoot a game of pool. The hot tub on the deck is another great option, too. A gazebo in the back features a seating area and a rock fireplace, perfect for gathering in the evenings and roasting marshmallows for s’mores. In winter months, the house is conveniently located about 45 from Crystal Mountain Ski Resort.
In the summer months, bring your boat and have convenient water access using our dock and its boat lift that accommodates boats up to 25 ft, and/or bring your jet skis and keep them on our double jet ski ramp. If a slower, quieter pace on the water is more your style, paddle our sit-on-top kayaks along the extensive 45 mile shoreline. The lake has many inlets and interesting places to explore, and much of it offers gorgeous views of Mt. Rainier.
Please note that Lake Tapps is a reservoir that is lowered from late October through late April each year, and motor boat access is unavailable during these months. The lake level lowers approximately 3-10 feet.
Guess have access to main house, deck, yards, and dock.
