Okay, This Really Is a Good Deal

There is a home here in Shelton that overlooks Hammersley Inlet, and in fact from the deck in front you can see not only the Inlet, but down to Oakland Bay, and of course see the Olympic Mountains in the background. The present owners love to sit on their deck and watch the shipping traffic go by, or just enjoy the changing moods of the mountains. They have a room that is just inside the door leading out to the deck that is a little bonus room, and they've set up their coffee bar there, and when it's a little chilly can sit and still enjoy the view.  The couple who live here enjoy their home immensely and are sad that they have reached a stage in life where they have to consider moving on to something simpler. You see there is also about an acre and a half of property to take care of, with a stream running through it and a trout pond, too. And lots of rhododendrums -- 150 of them, of 50 varieties that bloom for 5 months of the year.
 The picture above is seen by looking down on one of the homes below, and out to Hammersley Inlet, and below is a shot of the Olympic Mountains on a clear day. Of course right now the snow is not as abundant as in this picture.
When you live in the Shelton area, you live in the Gateway to the Olympics, and are only an hour and a half away from the Pacific ocean. It's a good place to live, or to vacation. The present owners think that people may like their small home as a vacation home. The home is just a bit over 1000 sq ft, so it is not very big.  But it has 2 bedrooms, and 2 bonus rooms, a small living room, and a pretty kitchen with eating space. The kitchen has Italian tile floors, by the way, and is quite charming. There is a garden room attached to the house.  And there is a single car car port, and the driveway is circular.  Further more there is a Windsong park model on the property that has served as a guest house.  This little guest home has 1 bedroom, a sleeping loft, a living area, a bathroom and kitchen and sits away from the main house for privacy. It also has a deck. Here is a picture of the house from a couple of different angles.  You'll need an appointment to see the inside.

The house and acreage started out at a price of $161,950 but because the owners really need to start making plans for changing their lifestyle to meet the new requirements of age, they have lowered the price to $149,950.  This is a really good deal.  They are hoping that people who will love the house like they do will buy it. It has been a peaceful retreat for them, and they have had so many guests who come and share this place with them. By the way, here is a picture of the Windsong guest home. 
 You can see more pictures of this property HERE.  Share this around and lets see if we can help this couple find a buyer or buyers who will appreciate the home that they have loved for so many years.
It is MLS# 348110.  Tell your real estate broker to call for an appointment to see it soon!
