When day breaks on a perfectly placid American Lake, morning seems to whisper over Pierce County’s largest natural water feature and through the gated entry into Harwood Cove in Lakewood - a 19-homesite enclave of MainVue Homes’ modern and spacious offerings, just three miles from the gates to esteemed Joint Base Lewis-McChord and within the coveted Clover Park School District. Hours later, quiet lakeside mornings turn lively with the bustling hum of rowing regattas, waterskiing, swimming, playgrounds and picnicking from the beaches at American Lake Park. This 5-acre jewel, featuring capstone views of Mount Rainier, is one of two large public parks on the lake. Best of all, it’s only a few minutes from Harwood Cove. Carved into a sweet spot of large lots in a community known as Lake City, Harwood Cove’s singular cul-de-sac offers neighborhood privacy and quick connections via Interstate 5 south to Dupont and Olympia, or north to Tacoma. Well-established surface streets, meanwhile, lead south toward JBLM and north to Lakewood Industrial Park, the third largest industrial business park in the state. Simpler commutes translate to greater leisure time for Harwood Cove homeowners. Use it to explore historic 340-acre Fort Steilacoom Park, once a gathering place for the Nisqually and Steilacoom tribes. Today, it’s a network of trails; sports fields; an off-leash dog park, and radio-controlled aircraft area for hobbyists. Nearby, test the myriad golf courses, including world-class Chambers Bay, with panoramic bluff-edge Puget Sound views. On the way home, swing through Lakewood Towne Center, a convenient retail hub with everything from groceries and school supplies to burgers, banking, books, entertainment and much more.
