“[This home is] only about 1.5 hours from Tacoma, the perfect distance [that allows you] to get there quickly but feel like it’s a vacation,” says Regina. “[It’s] about the same distance to Seatac Airport for out-of-state travelers or business during the week. Ski/snowboard families have often sought out cabins in Greenwater and in the surrounding areas of Crystal Mountain; usually these cabins stay in families for 20+ years. This uniquely built home is extravagant but cozy, custom but warm—bring your family and friends together for years to come!”
Built in 2004, this custom cabin-style home is nestled on nearly a 1-acre corner lot in a paved cul-de-sac. Enjoy the amenities offered by Crystal River Ranch, including a park, picnic areas, an equestrian area, grounds maintenance, and watch over the homes with seasonal owners, all included with $60 HOA dues.
Other highlights include:
master on the main
2 additional bedrooms upstairs
luxury kitchen and open concept layout
2 fireplaces (1 out, 1 in) made of river rock
220 feet of low bank riverfront directly on the White River
16kw generator for stormy nights (auto turn-on)
loft above garage plumbed and wired for extra space/office/bonus room etc.
engineered rock vanes installed on the property to prevent erosion and protect the riverside ($200,000 install) and HOA subsequently installed 14 more
detached 2-car garage and carport
area is popular for Airbnb, VRBO, and other types of vacation home investments
According to Regina, the home’s sellers have especially loved “the peaceful setting, feeling the stress melt away within minutes of arriving, watching the river change through the seasons, and the resident elk who often bed immediately behind the home.”
Take advantage of being surrounded by idyllic nature while still being wonderfully close to community trails, 20 minutes to Crystal Mountain Ski Resort, Santa visits on the firetruck every Christmas, New Year’s bonfires at the community park, close proximity to Mt. Rainier National Park, Whistlin' Jacks Lodge for lunch/dinner, hamburgers from Naches Tavern, ski/winter shopping at Wapiti Woolies (including Starbucks coffee served there), 5-min from town of Greenwater, 30-min from town of Enumclaw which has grocery, gas, necessities, etc. And in the summer, you can easily take Chinook Pass over to Yakima to enjoy wine country!
