Many people dream of living in a spacious home in a picturesque setting, all while still living in an area convenient enough for their commute. It can be a hard combination to pull off, but the Puyallup Highlands neighborhood offers a unique opportunity to take advantage of both!

REALTOR® Marisa Merritt is especially fond of this community that’s located just off of Shaw Road. “[It’s] just minutes to jump on Highway 512 or Highway 167,” she shares. Marisa’s clients have found this particular area to be one of the best spots in Puyallup to live in, in part due to its quick north and south access.

Plus, you’re just minutes to the South Hill Mall, the movies, a huge variety of restaurants and shopping opportunities, and you don’t have to fight the crazy traffic of Meridian from this prime location! Residents also love that the community is ideal for walking in, with its fine streetscapes, pedestrian-friendly sidewalks, and hills that are perfect for getting in a good workout.

“Sitting high atop Puyallup Highlands, this home is able to take in the Puyallup city views,” says Marisa.

“This home has EVERYTHING! [You’ll find] a plethora of space throughout with an office on the main floor, a bonus room, and 5 bedrooms upstairs. Not to mention a FOUR car garage! [This residence is also] touched with fine finishes including hardwood floors, granite slab counters, a fully tiled master bath, and exquisite built-ins. [There’s also a] dreamy kitchen with an oversized island, a whopping double-sized refrigerator, a gas range, and all stainless steel appliances.”
