Take a moment to learn more about this Yelm home’s top 4 features: 

1. Picturesque & private setting.

Privately located at the end of Lakepoint Drive at 17237 Lakepoint Drive SE Yelm, WA 98597, this Lake Lawrence home offers the ideal getaway in a quiet cove! Thanks to its secluded location, there’s less traffic in the area. Established landscaping and lush, low maintenance natural greenery surround this retreat; enjoy views of Madrona trees and the shimmering lake while you relax out on the large entertaining deck or patio. Plus, the property is partially fenced. 

2. Easy access to activities on the lake & the amazing Lake Lawrence community! 

Living on Lake Lawrence lets you embrace a vacation-inspired lifestyle. Gather around the fire pit down by the waters edge, enjoy dining in the cabana, and take advantage of all the benefits that having your own dock and boat lift afford. Spend days out on the lake scooting around on your watercraft, exploring on your kayak or paddle board, or fishing; the lake is stocked a couple times each year with fish, and there are lots of bass and trout fishermen. (Lake Lawrence recently hosted a big derby a couple weeks ago, and there are sometimes smaller ones throughout the year.) 

Ski boats, motorboats, and jet skis are allowed on the lake (there’s a public boat launch for your convenience), and there are even Hydro races held on the lake in late spring (and sometimes they do mini races throughout the year). 4th of July has an epic boat parade with incredible firework shows, and many locals love the great sense of community with the neighbors on the lake. 

3. Inviting open concept living. 

As soon as you step inside from the front door, this home’s flowing open-concept layout beckons. The open-concept kitchen, living room, and great room all offer laid-back living, and this lovingly maintained home is ready for you to move right in and make it your own! The kitchen is especially noteworthy; large counters (which include bar-style seating), an abundance of storage, sleek appliances, and views outside make up this well-appointed space. 

4. Wonderful versatility awaits thanks to a spacious layout. 

2 bedrooms and 2.25 baths are included in the mix as well, and you can enjoy flexibility on the lower level. Here you’ll find the perfect hangout where you can kick back and watch movies, and you can set up sleeper sofas so you’re ready when extra guests come to stay!
