Gorgeous 5 bedroom Craftsman home in Covington

5 bed, 2.5 bath, 2910 square feet home

This beautiful home can be your new oasis!  Light and bright, this quality Stafford two story Craftsman style home has been loving maintained, better than new!  It is located near the end of a dead end street in the desirable Tamarack Ridge neighborhood.  Gleaming original maple hardwoods, 9 foot ceilings and white mill work greet you as you enter and extend through the kitchen and dining areas.   The huge open concept kitchen area boasts granite counters, a gas island cook top, tons of oak cabinet space, a computer/desk area, a pantry…too many details to mention.   A powder room and laundry/mud room are also located on the main floor.  The home is wired for whole house stereo and Internet, and will keep you comfortable with central air conditioning.

If you tire of basking in the sun on the front the porch eating strawberries straight from the garden, wander to the back of the home where a private retreat awaits and beckons you to relax in the “outdoor room” back yard, just beyond the large windows in the Great room.  The patio and garden were professionally designed to provide year round interest and easy care.  It feels like a sunken garden, with beautiful Japanese maples and evergreens offering shade and privacy, and functions like a bonus living/dining area.

The graceful staircase has a curved 2 story balcony sitting area overlooking the entry and front living room, and offering views of Mount Rainier.  Upstairs are five real bedrooms (each is a good sized room with closet and windows), although for some reason the county property data lists the home as only a 4 bed house.

Enter double doors into the huge master suite, with tray ceiling, ceiling fan, and large windows overlooking the back yard.  The master can easily accommodate a large King size bed, with dressers, etc. and plenty of room to spare.  Another set of double doors leads to the ensuite 5 piece master bathroom featuring a garden tub and a large walk in closet.  There is even a view of Mount Rainier from the master closet windows!

Enter through double doors to the second large upstairs bedroom which could be used as an office or a media room.  Three other bedrooms and a full bath and linen closet are also located upstairs.

The two car 520 s.f. garage is quite deep, with 12 foot ceilings, offering an abundance of additional storage space.

This home feels tucked away in the country (with horses and alpaca just down the road), yet is conveniently located just a mile from Hwy 18, Costco, Starbucks, and only two miles from Trader Joes.  The nearby Soos Creek trail offers excellent opportunities for walking, biking, and bird watching.

Schools are Kentwood HS, Mattson Junior High, and Crestwood Elementary.
