Marisa Merritt Professional Headshot of Marisa Merritt October 19, 2017

Lakewood probably isn’t what comes to mind when most folks picture luxury, resort-style homes, but it should be! The envy-worthy gated community of Madera may be situated just 3 minutes from I-5, but it’s truly a hidden treasure, and this gorgeous home at 11724 Madera Drive SW is a not-to-be-missed gem!

Each custom Madera home was built for laid-back luxury living. One single-story property in particular boasts an enviable master suite, skylights, hardwood floors, granite countertops, a walk-in closet and pantry, an expansive back deck, and an in-home sauna. When you consider the easy-to-maintain yard and built-in sprinkler system, homes like this are the perfect blend of luxury living and convenience.

Current residents love Madera’s surrounding old-growth foliage and mature landscaping, and sing the praises of the neighborhood’s unparalleled natural beauty – a stroll around this picturesque and peaceful neighborhood boasts views of American Lake, a gorgeous English rose garden, and even a Japanese garden. That’s something you won’t find anywhere else.

The best part? The location. Gravelly Lake, American Lake and Steilacoom Lake are all within 2 miles of Madera’s front gates, and dining, golf, tennis and swimming opportunities at Tacoma Golf and Country Club are just a 6-minute drive away.

The Madera neighborhood is truly the total package – it’s one of the few places where you’ll find affordable, high-end homes that are not only filled with amenities, but also right around the corner from restaurants, shops, golf, and best of all, unparalleled natural beauty.
