This updated, spacious home in Kent’s East Hill neighborhood is in a wonderfully convenient location that’s central to Seattle, Bellevue, Renton, and Tacoma. Let’s take a tour of this spacious home in Kent’s East Hill neighborhood that’s in a quiet, private setting yet less than one mile to shopping. 

This spacious home in Kent’s East Hill Neighborhood is extra special for Diva Dude Rocky Flowers. It is currently owned by some of Rocky’s family members who have absolutely loved living here. In addition to adoring the community and the quiet neighborhood that’s close to Kent’s urban convenience, there are several more standout features you won’t want to miss. The primary suite offers luxurious rejuvenation (the double-sided fireplace… omg!), the updated kitchen shows off efficiency and entertaining ease, and the open layout offers seamless flow.

When it’s time to unwind, this home’s primary suite offers a fabulous haven to rest and rejuvenate in. A dimmer light makes it easy to change the mood in an instant, and the two-sided gas fireplace promises coziness with the mere flick of a switch! Snuggle into bed and drift off into dreamland in your very own private retreat. 

The primary suite offers a generous layout with more than enough space for a swanky bedroom set—you’ll have no problem fitting a sumptuous king-sized bed, stylish dressers, and a large armoire here. Even more dynamic space awaits in the huge walk-in closet that makes it easy to stay organized, and just wait until you see the luxurious ensuite bath! Relax like royalty in the soaking tub that rests alongside the second side of the fireplace (and a new hot water heater is ready for all of those piping hot bubble baths that are in your future). And finally, a double vanity makes it easy to spread out, ensuring ease in the day-to-day. 

The Updated Kitchen Features a Fab Open-Concept Layout Ready For Your Next Party

Stunning Open Kitchen with Large Island and Walk-In Pantry

Whether you’re the hostess with the mostess or you love whipping up elaborate homemade feasts (or both), this large, open kitchen is designed to delight. All new stainless-steel appliances are at your service, and the updated cabinet hardware, backsplash, and granite countertops show off dialed-in style.

One of the kitchen’s major highlights is the giant center island—use the extra counter space for meal prep, enjoy your morning cup of coffee here, or gather and gossip with your besties for apps and rosé. And don’t miss the walk-in pantry (this is always one of our favorite things!!)—you really don’t realize how much you NEED this in your life until you have one!

Never Miss a Moment of the Fun with This Layout

With this spacious home in East Hill, Kent, the kitchen and the den merge together to create a versatile entertaining space with a seamless flow. Most of us spend a lot of time in the kitchen, and this open layout makes it easy and convenient to stay connected with guests and kids while you check on that simmering pot of soup or put the final touches on dinner. 

In the den, you can gather around the beautiful gas fireplace that adds instant ambiance to movie marathons, game nights, and quiet evenings spent lounging on the couch while you get lost in a good book. Plus, a new Nest thermostat helps to keep things comfy and just right all year long.

Kent’s East Hill Neighborhood is Convenient, Central, & Perfect for Commuters 

Downtown Kent

Part of Downtown Kent’s Classic Vibe

Kent is one of those cities that’s right “in the backyard” of all of our region’s major cities. You’ve got great access to freeways that take you straight into Seattle, Bellevue, Renton, and Tacoma. Not only that, but Kent has some fantastic commercial zones that are right at your fingertips. Canyon Ridge Shopping Plaza is less than a mile away, for example. Here you’ll find places like Target, The Home Depot, Petco, Joann craft store, Walgreens, Rite Aid, and tons of eateries! And when you need to go grocery shopping, you’ll find Trader Joe’s, Safeway, Fred Meyer, and more merely minutes away. A more urban experience awaits in nearby Kent Station, which is home to even more amenities, including a movie theater, a Sounder Train station, a Park & Ride, the Showare Center, etc. 

Getting out in the fresh air is also super convenient here. South 277th Corridor Recreational Trail is a scenic 2.3-mile trail with river views and picturesque wooded areas. It’s the ideal spot for a leisurely weekend stroll. 

Bonus Features

There are a few more things we needed to make sure that we point out. This home comes with a new garage door and a smart garage door opener. That’s right—your garage door can be opened from your phone, from anywhere. Presto!

You’ll also find new manufactured hardwood floors, an updated first-floor bathroom, and a handy outdoor shed for extra storage. 


How to Buy a Home in Seattle: The Entire Process in Brief 

How to Buy a Home in Seattle: The Entire Process in Brief

Let’s get down and dirty. Owning a home in Seattle is an amazing experience and it can be fun. Do not listen to all of those cranky folks who think Seattle is not what it used to be and a middle-income owner cannot afford to buy a home in Seattle. Strap in, get yourself some strong Seattle coffee and learn how to be a smart and savvy home buyer in Seattle.

Steps For Buying a Home in Seattle

  1. Find Your Guide: Find an agent that is super savvy and will be your ultimate navigator.
  2. Choose Your Priorities: Size, Condition, Or Location?
  3. Home Buyer Intake Process: Schedule a sit-down meeting with you and your real estate team to dive into what you want in a home.
  4. Financing: Get your financial house in order.
  5. Big Search: The big home search in Seattle
  6. Making an Offer: Know what you need and how to prepare yourself to make an offer.
  7. You Are In Contract: You’ve signed on the dotted line. Now… the hard work really starts.
  8. Inspecting Your Home: What to look for, how to hire an inspector, and how to respond to the inspection.
  9. Reviewing The Title Report: The title report is often the most overlooked portion of the buyer’s review.
  10. Reviewing the HOA/Resale Certificate (for Condos): …Also an overlooked portion of the buyer’s review process.
  11. Appraisal Process: Most homes are purchased with a home loan. The appraisal determines the final value by your lender for your home.
  12. Final Loan Approval: All kinds of things can come up during the final loan approval process, so be prepared.
  13. Final Two Weeks of the Process: Walkthrough, inspection resolution, and (for god’s sake) do not make a huge purchase on a credit card.
  14. Signing Your Final Homeowner Documents: You made it!
  15. Closing Day: You get the keys and access to your home.

This is just a starting point, and we have so much more to share about the home buying process. Browse our Home Buyer page for a comprehensive home buying education.
