I just found out I'm going to have to move across country for work reasons and I'm going to have to sell my place, I never thought I would. I'll be listing it soon but it has a lot of features that might be of more interest to arfcommers than the genpop so I thought I'd throw an ad out.
It's an 1856 sq ft 3/2 on 1.62 acres in lakebay/longbranch with a garage, workshop, attached carport, a small barn/storage building/poultry run, a good well, and a great location in the center of Mahncke point surrounded by waterfront lots, the proverbial cheapest house in a nice neighborhood, the neighbor across the street just sold his house for nearly a million $. There's a private beach access on case inlet for the highbank and non-waterfront folks in the neighborhood. The lot is very private with no visible neighbors, on a dead end street nobody drives down unless they live out here or know someone who does. It's about 25 minutes to downtown Gig harbor, couple little towns between here and there, can get a lot of places fast by boat, including Olympia. Tacoma and Bremerton are both easily commutable, especially now that the narrows is done and 16 is getting upgraded.
The house is a great room floorplan with vaulted exposed beam/T&G ceiling, OG TG red cedar siding, real hardwood cabinetry, granite tile countertops, two bedrooms, a bonus room with wood stove and a full bath upstairs, downstairs there's a third bedroom my wife calls the gungeon, with a couple safes anchored in and work/reloading benches and so on, 3/4 bath, mud room, and a large laundry/utility room with room for a couple freezers that could stay. most of the upstairs is in pergo, the baths and mudroom are ceramic, there's a wrap-around covered porch/deck with a SS gas grill and room for a table with polycarb twinwall greenhouse roofing, I'm just finishing up the railings. I reroofed and improved the insulation last year, with 4.5" of foil faced R-32 celotex on top of the T&G.
There's mature apple, plum, cherry, and filbert trees and some little ones that should start producing soon, berries, a deep garden plot with great soil, mature shrubbery, rhodies and such, I always figured I'd sell in the spring but I need to be in SC by the time everything will be blooming, it's nice.
The garage is detached, kind of a smallish 2 car garage but it has a finished workshop off one side of it with workbenches, pegboard, some cabinetry, lighting and outlets, makes a pretty nice place to work on stuff, the other oubuilding is about 16x20' and has electricity also.
There's hosebibs in the garden and the orchard and at the wellhead in the lawn, quite a bit of fat export-marketable doug fir and enough madrona and little stuff to keep you in firewood for life.
Asking price is $50k ($68K now) below the zillow estimate and $10K below the tax assesment, seems like it's priced to sell based on the comps I can find, most of the places on acreage at this price in the area are doublewides or much smaller.
I'm moving across country so there's a lot of stuff I could leave if you wanted depending on price, an antique wood cookstove, an old Case tractor, a gennie, mower, some of my yard tools, some furniture, stacks of building materials, a hot tub that's complete but needs set up someone gave me that I never got around to, stuff like that. Going to be selling off all my crap. If you make it easy on me I'll make it easy on you.
I'd be happy to trade for property of similar value in Lexington SC or various negotiable instruments. I know, just don't know where else to put this in the old EE.
If you don't own yet we still have time to get you the $8K tax credit, which is part of the reason I'm anxious to find a buyer, also I need to be in the new job on a short timeline, so it's priced to sell.
anyway, IM or email if it interests.
