Mature landscaping and views of the sound welcome you as you approach the home, which is located on a quiet, dead-end street with a light traffic flow. Once inside, enjoy the views from across the Tacoma Narrows where the Day Island Marina is visible straight across the way. The home features a chef-sized kitchen, an open floor plan, beautifully refinished hardwood floors, and is move-in ready.
Take a stroll through the french doors located off of the dining area onto the large sturdy deck where you can sunbathe, BBQ or have a refreshing drink while taking in the views and fresh air.
There is plenty of room for play, inside and out, and be sure to enjoy your own orchard and vegetable growing beds. The fresh fruit is endless with apples, pears, plums, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, grapes and kiwis! Roast marshmallows, visit friends and take advantage of the firepit on those quiet, summer evenings. Enjoy the simple life!
Fox Island also offers several public boat launches, the Fox Island Yacht club is located just down the street, and is home to one of the best beaches in the area – Bella Bella spit. This beach is owned and maintained by PenMet Parks and provides a great spot for swimming, sunbathing, sea life watching and scuba diving. The Fox Island pier is the local fishing spot and a great place to sled when it snows.
Stop by Zog's Wine Bar and Beer Garden on your way home for a refreshing drink and tasty food while sitting around the firepits enjoying the sounds of waterfalls and views of beautiful flower gardens.
