Serene View Home with ADU in Steilacoom’s Historic District 

Situated right across the street from scenic Saltar’s Point Beach, this serene Steilacoom home showcases stunning, unobstructed views of the majestic Olympic Mountains and picturesque Puget Sound islands. This generous home offers a truly rare opportunity; in addition to the sprawling main home, an ADU (with its own kitchen!) offers incredible flexibility. Discover a total of 2,785 square feet to call your own, which includes 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. Additional highlights include sundrenched living spaces, a beautifully landscaped backyard, a detached 2-story outbuilding… and much more! Located at 411 1st Street Steilacoom, WA 98388 in Steilacoom’s charming waterfront Historic District, this home is listed for $1,000,000. 

From the day you get your keys, you can move right into this home-sweet-home, and a long list of updates promise peace of mind! In 2023, new carpet was installed, and in 2018, new hardwood floors were installed. In 2021, this home got a brand new roof (weather bond 60 mil TPO Thermoplastic Polyolefin roof system with a lifetime material warranty and three year labor warranty), and in 2017 a new furnace was installed (still under 10-year warranty and services in January 2021). Plus, in 2019, the city sewer line and city electrical main lines were replaced on the entire street, and a sewer scope from the house to the street was performed at the same time, resulting in no deficiencies. This timeless gem is ready for its next chapter! 

While this home offers a long list of updates, you’ll find plenty of opportunity to add your own renovations into the mix. Each warm and inviting space is ready to be brought to life with your unique vision, and no matter what transformations await in the years to come, water and mountain views boast a breathtaking backdrop for all that life brings your way. In the main living area, walls of windows ensure the heart of the home is awash in rejuvenating natural light, all while providing sweeping views. Relax alongside the fireplace in the main living area, gather with loved ones in the sunlit dining space, and when the weather warms up, take the party right outside! In the open kitchen, a smart layout makes the most of the space and features ample storage and counter space, and don’t miss the sunny garden window perfect for your favorite plants and herb garden! 

Each bedroom and bath offers something a bit different; each comfortable haven offers its own standout features, from eye-catching accent walls to large windows that frame water views. The primary suite is especially not to be missed—a sizable layout means that you have more than enough room for a king-sized bed and organizational furniture, and you even have direct access to a view deck. In addition to an ensuite bath, you’ll also find a totally dreamy walk-in closet complete with a built-in organization system. 

Even more living spaces await in the ADU, which includes its own living area filled with natural light, a bedroom, a bath, and even its own kitchen. And in the detached 2-story “shop” outbuilding, the sky’s the limit—use the space for projects and hobbies, storage for tools and toys, and so much more. 

From the moment you pull in the driveway, artistic and established landscaping delights, offering just a preview of the gorgeous greenery that you’ll find in the backyard as well. A spacious deck and patio off the back of the home are ready for outdoor entertaining, while mature shrubs, trees, flowers, and a water feature offer a park-like view to admire at every turn. Lush, lovely, and blossoming with possibilities, the backyard getaway is ready to become your private oasis!
