Spanaway Real Estate March 12, 2021

Side-by-Side Properties (Being Sold Separately) Offer Unique Opportunity in Spanaway: 1.3-Acre Land Parcel & 1-Acre Property with Rambler

SOLD and SOLD!!!


Two new listings in Spanaway present a truly unique opportunity in Pierce County! Located right alongside each other, these two properties are brimming with potential. While both properties might be purchased by the same buyer, it’s important to note that each property is being sold separately. 

Property #1

The first property is located at 22721 46th Ave E Spanaway, WA 98387 (MLS# 03181044) and is listed for $415,000. Offering just shy of an acre (the lot is technically 0.98 acres), this property includes a 2,204-square-foot rambler with 3 bedrooms and 2.25 baths, a detached garage, a barn, an outbuilding, RV parking, and plenty of outdoor space to enjoy. (Plus, there’s no HOA.) 

Classic and inviting, this property’s expansive rambler is ready to be renovated and reimagined to suit your wants and needs! An appealing, welcoming floor plan awaits, and you’ll find abundant space to spread out in and transform. Large living spaces ensure that you have room to host a crowd for laid-back get-togethers and holiday gatherings, and the family room is especially noteworthy—warm wood elements and a brick-accented wood-burning fireplace offer a cabin-inspired atmosphere to cozy up in! 

The open kitchen offers a smart design and a spacious layout, and highlights include abundant storage in cabinetry and large counters with more than enough room for meal prep. A breakfast bar is perfect for serving beverages and appetizers at your next party, and the layout flows right into the adjacent dining area. 

This home also features 3 bedrooms and 2.25 baths, which includes the master bedroom. Here you’ll find built-in closet space and a 0.75 ensuite bath. Even more flexibility can be enjoyed with the office area and rec room—you can have a designated space for working from home, and you have the room for a fitness center, a hobby room, a hangout with an entertainment center and tabletop games, and more!  

This property’s outdoor offerings are perfect for those who love spending time out in the fresh air tending to the land. Let dogs, cats, chickens, goats, or horses roam, and keep your gear in the outbuilding, barn, or detached garage. Dreaming of growing farm fresh fruits and veggies? There’s more than enough room to build raised garden beds, too! Additionally, a charming courtyard provides the ideal spot for curating an outdoor getaway complete with comfy outdoor furniture and a barbecue. 

Property #2 

The second property is located at 0 XXX 46th Ave E Spanaway, WA 98387 (MLS# 1738638), which is right alongside Property #1. This 1.375-acre lot is listed for $149,950. 

If you’ve been dreaming about designing and building your own one-of-a-kind home, this might be just the opportunity you’ve been searching for! Water, gas and electricity at the street, and septic are still needed. However, this parcel is conveniently cleared, level, and surveyed. Tucked away in a quiet, peaceful setting where beautiful evergreens line the horizon, this Spanaway lot offers a blank canvas where you can bring your vision of home-sweet-home to life! 

Living in Spanaway

At both 22721 46th Ave E Spanaway, WA 98387 and 0 XXX 46th Ave E Spanaway, WA 98387, you’re in a quiet neighborhood that’s merely minutes to schools, shopping, restaurants, Highway 7, and Joint Base Lewis-McChord. Highway 7 is a short 3-minute drive away, and places like Fred Meyer and Walmart Supercenter aren’t far beyond that! You can be in the heart of both Spanaway and Puyallup’s South Hill area in just about 10-15 minutes, giving you easy access to even more city convenience. One of this location’s major perks is also its close proximity to the great outdoors—you’ll find opportunities for fishing, boating, hiking, camping, horseback riding, etc. no more than 15 minutes from home.

Located at 20501 151st Lane SE Yelm, WA 98597, this home-sweet-home is listed for $515,000.


There are several standout features that make this Yelm gem an especially attractive prospect—here are this rambler’s top 3 not to miss features:

1. Idyllic country setting and close to outdoor adventure.

2. Completely custom with plenty of opportunity to make your own vision come to life.

This property started off as vacant land back in 2015, and since then, the sellers have developed the property on their own. They cleared it, put in all of the hardscaping, had the well and septic installed themselves, and even hired a builder to build the home.

There’s also space for parking an RV, and the yard includes a playscape that stays with the home (but does not include the trampoline). And while this property is certainly stunning as is, you also have the opportunity to make your own vision of home come to life, whether you want to build a greenhouse and garden beds, raise livestock, create a huge deck with a firepit for entertaining, etc. The sky’s the limit here!

3. Gorgeous modern home design.

Featuring 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and light-filled, open-concept living spaces, this immaculate home is impressive in its own right and offers easy 1-level living.
