Time spent at home is an absolute joy thanks to the spacious 1,596-square-foot layout, thoughtful updates, and the backyard getaway, and when you’d like to take advantage of local amenities and attractions, you don’t have to go far. For starters, Whole Foods is only 0.2 miles away, and you’ll find everything from waterfront parks and schools to dozens of dining options and shopping opportunities all no more than 5 minutes away. Located at 3517 Oas Drive W University Place, WA 98466, this 3-bedroom, 1.25-bath home is listed for $545,000.
Situated on a 0.2-acre property on a residential street with no through traffic, this classic beauty is in an established neighborhood. Built in 1964, this home shows off vintage elements alongside more recent updates; for example, you’ll find a newly remodeled ¾ bath, a cute kitchen remodel, and newer carpeting in the living room. Charming curb appeal delights from the moment you arrive home, too—admire the mature landscaping as you pull into the extra-long driveway.
A welcoming pathway leads right to the front door, which opens up into the light-filled living room. The wood-burning fireplace anchors the scene while adding instant coziness to winter evenings spent relaxing at home. A neutral color palette awaits as well, making it easy to move right in and re-envision the space to your liking. Maybe you’ll choose to embrace this home’s 1960s vibe, or maybe creating a modern on-trend aesthetic is more your speed; however you choose to decorate, this home’s living spaces offer a canvas for you to transform!
The layout seamlessly flows into the dining area, and here you’ll also find easy access out onto the back patio. This is especially convenient during warmer months when you’ll benefit even more from the effortless indoor-outdoor living possibilities. The layout unfolds into the kitchen where you’ll find a bright and cheerful setting. Even more seating awaits at the breakfast bar, and additional highlights here include the gleaming Corian counters, the double oven, and the abundance of storage. And just beyond the kitchen, there’s even more storage along with laundry amenities and a half bath.
Another expansive living area is tucked away toward the back of the home with the family room. This haven presents even more possibilities and wonderful versatility in use. Set up an entertainment center where you can gather for movie nights, spread out at your next game night, create a play area for little ones, and so much more. There is even a built-in storage area with cabinets and a counter, perfect for organizing hobby supplies, games, etc.
A total of 3 bedrooms with hardwood floors are also in the dynamic mix, and don’t miss the newly remodeled ¾ bath that boasts a huge walk-in shower!
The ideal backyard setup has already been curated and lovingly maintained over the years, so you can start to enjoy it from day one! Shrubs, trees, and many different types of plants fill the garden beds that surround the neat lawn, and there’s plenty of opportunity for you to put your green thumb to work adding your favorite blooms and blossoms into the mix come spring. An area for a vegetable garden can be found at the side of the house alongside the large storage shed, the latter of which would also make the perfect chicken coop!
