University Place Waterfront Real Estate

University Place offers a small-town feel, yet its just west of the city of Tacoma and north of Lakewood, lying on the Puget Sound, offering sweeping water, Olympic Mountain, Mount Rainier and Fox Island views. Unlike one might imagine, there is no university here, the area was named when the University of Puget Sound planned to build a new campus on the site but ultimately decided against it. Incorporated in 1995, today it’s known for its vibrant but primarily residential atmosphere. Those with University Place waterfront real estate can take advantage of the easy access to the Sound, while Interstate 5 and downtown Tacoma can be reached within a 15-minute drive. This community is also home to an outstanding, top-tier golf course, Chambers Bay, which hosts PGA events. Residents often enjoy walking the popular Chambers Bay Trail, which provides a great workout with its hills, while offering breathtaking views of the water and golf course throughout.
