Incredible Mid-Century Home with 8 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, & Expansive Back Porch in University Place

Discover original Mid-Century design in this breathtaking 2-story home, built on double Beckonridge Community lots. Sprawling across an expansive 4,756 square feet and filled with hallmarks of Mid-Century architecture, this 8-bedroom, 5-bathroom home eagerly awaits the infusion of your personal tastes and aesthetics!

Formerly a Home Show property and bursting with potential, this 1969-built home is perfect for the entertainer with a sharp eye for design. Excellent schools are just a short walk away from 4408 Merry Lane W, University Place, WA 98466, and the listing price is $439,000.


Impressive curb appeal is inspired by the unique, split-level facade and lovingly maintained landscaping. A winding pathway leads to the entrance and features vibrant young foliage alongside towering mature trees. A broad verandah provides the perfect spot to sip hot coffee as you begin the day, and the expansive elevated deck around the back provides excellent views of the natural scene that stretches on in the background. Imagine summers spent hosting backyard get-togethers and barbecues from this Pacific Northwest vista!



Inside, room after room boasts design touches that exemplify the iconic Mid-Century style, from brightly painted, highly textured walls and floors to exposed beams and ample windows. Guests will be transported between worlds as they make their way through each room—a unique den with rich, red carpet and dark floor-to-ceiling bookshelves inspires study and hibernation, while the kitchen, just steps away, is filled with sunlight and overlooks the backyard.

The home’s personality is also expressed through texture; the kitchen’s oven is nestled within a long brick wall, an expansive stonework wall houses a fireplace in the living room, and bold, floor-to-ceiling black-and-white stripes adorn the walls of another room. 


Because this home is so expansive, you can rest assured that there’s plenty of room for family and friends! With multiple rooms dedicated to comfortable, open-concept shared living, each of the 8 bedrooms offers plenty privacy for loved ones, and the opportunity for everyone to have a special space to call their own.
