Built in 1992 by Bullinger Construction, this exquisite 4-bedroom, 2.75-bath, 3-car garage home was designed and built for Builder Mel Bullinger’s own family. “Bullinger Construction has designed and constructed many amazing homes in the University Place area in neighborhoods such as Wescliffe,” shares REALTOR® Regina Madiera-Gorden.

Brimming with stunning spaces designed with entertaining in mind, this University Place home is a work of art: “The builder was a Chihuly fan and there are intricate designs in the living room to show off art pieces. Don't forget to look up when touring this home so you’re sure not to miss the geometric architecture throughout. The Bullinger family traveled to extraordinary places such as Hong Kong, where Mel got inspired by the architecture,” says Regina.

Not only do you have the opportunity to see this home in person now, but it could be yours! This 4,717-square-foot beauty is listed for $725,000. In addition to the large entertaining spaces and one-of-a-kind design elements, one of the home’s many highlights includes 12-foot ceilings in the basement with a large area to create the bonus space of your dreams. Whether you envision a play room, a fitness center, a theater room, or a recreation area with a pool table, there’s potential for it all!

The current owners have loved living in such a family-oriented community, and their family has raised children in the University Place area for many generations. Located at 3722 82nd Av Ct W University Place WA 98466 at the end of a private road, this home on 0.45 acres is right behind the Curtis High School Fields and Colgate Park, and the property backs up to a beautiful greenbelt. Plus, it’s just minutes to University Place shops and restaurants!
