That said, this fantastic, exclusive home rests two miles north of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge, offering unobstructed 180-degree views from all rooms of the home. It features three living areas, one with a built-in fireplace and one with a freestanding stove.
The informal dining area sits at a lookout as if it were a ship riding above the Sound. In a quiet neighborhood of similar fine homes, this house is convenient by minutes from Tacoma's shopping, dining, transportation hubs, and scenic areas. Although conveniences are minutes away, renters will feel as if they were the only people for miles.
This unusual Northwest style architect-designed home also features three private decks. One has a sauna with a window overlooking the spectacular view of the forest and the Sound. A spiral staircase leads downstairs to the four bedrooms and the office. Beds include king, queen, queen sofa bed and twin/double sofa bed. There is 1500 square feet of deck on the Sound view side of the house. Full laundry facilities are included. The gourmet kitchen is newly remodeled - from the refinished oak floors and cabinets to the Sub-Zero refrigerator, gas cook top, Corian countertop, built-in trash compactor, dishwasher and oven. Whirlpool tubs are in two of the bathrooms as well as a separate shower stall in the Master. Showers have built in benches, regulation grab bars in all bathrooms, fax machine, cable hookup on all three TVs, DSL hookup, stereo sound equipment, stationery bicycle, and comfortable furnishings will make you feel at home. The yard is professionally landscaped and maintained.
This fine home is convenient to (yet out of the traffic of) Seattle with all of its world famous amenities, 30 miles from Olympia, the state capitol, across the Narrows Bridge from Olympic Peninsula with its national park, Bremerton Naval Shipyard, Hood Canal, Port Angeles, and ferry boats to Seattle and Victoria, BC, Canada. It's also a great launching point to Mt. Rainier National Park, a day trip to Mt. St. Helens, or the Pacific coast. Tacoma has many fine restaurants and brew Pubs. Cultural activities include new museums such as the Washington State museum, the Glass Museum, and the New Tacoma Art Musuem downtown.
Magnificent sound views reward hikers at Pt. Defiance Park and Zoo only a 1.5 miles from this home. The zoo specializes in native northwest animals including aquariums where you can be up close with beluga whales, walruses, seals, and sharks. You can hike through the forests' 400 year old old-growth trees and the eagles that live in them. Sometimes the eagles fly close over the dining area skylight, and what a thrill that is! Outdoor activities in the Tacoma area include boating, kayaking, skiing, scuba, snowboarding and hiking. Try Tacoma for your next vacation, you'll be stunned and amazed at all that it offers.
