Sitting on the back patio feels like you’re at the park. The sellers will miss how wonderfully private the home is: “The house is in the middle of Lakewood, but very secluded and quiet. I also love how unique the house is. …[It] really is one of a kind—[we] always get compliments from guests when entertaining, about how beautiful it is!”
For the sellers, the yard is one of the highlights. Brimming with mature trees and flowers. The yard has been lovingly cared for over the years. Recently an arborist came out to trim the trees and refresh the garden space. A full sprinkler system promises easy maintenance, and the sellers spent a significant amount of money replacing almost the entire fence that wraps around the property.
Other upgrades include new exterior paint in 2019, brand new kitchen and appliances in 2018, heat pump replacement in 2017/18, tankless hot water heater replacement in 2016, and a new attached shed roof in the mix. Several thousands dollars was invested putting in an epoxy floor in the garage that has a lifetime warranty! The new owner will be able to reap the benefits for years to come on these expensive system and cosmetic upgrades!

Lincoln: A Neighborhood of Community & Convenience
“It’s a pretty close-knit neighborhood,” shares this home’s sellers. “A lot of our neighbors have been here for many years, and we know a lot of them. There are several neighborhood associations that meet regularly and they played a big role in getting the city to make improvements to the business district and park.”
Home to an eclectic variety of restaurants, shops,
a burgeoning art scene, parks, fantastic commuting options and more, at 3510
S Thompson Ave in Tacoma you’re wonderfully
surrounded by it all. Lincoln has also been home to recent
revitalization efforts, and new amenities
like the Eastside
Community Center and all of the new
shops along 38th street are all at your fingertips.
“We have an art gallery/shop/community art space.
There is a tool library where you can borrow all sorts of tools and landscaping equipment. There is a clothing store, a baby goods store, bubble tea & a desserts shop, and more! It’s a fun little area.”
Lincoln Park 🌲
Created in 1889,
Park is about as old as it gets in Tacoma, and with this
home, you’re nestled right across the street with views of the historic park. Having views of all of the park’s events and happenings is one of the biggest things the sellers will miss about their home—from kids playing on the playground and people playing
with their dogs, to seeing the church picnics and birthday parties that liven up the space. “There’s always something fun to look at, not to mention the beautiful trees and grass.”
The park is right alongside Lincoln High School, which just adds to the
close feel of the community. “I also really like hearing the sounds from Lincoln bowl when the school has sporting events. We get to hear the Star Spangled Banner and the crowd cheering,” share the sellers.
A Commuter’s Dream 🚗
“The best thing about this location is that you
are minutes away from downtown, I-5, Highway 16, the Tacoma Mall, and other shopping,” shared the sellers. “It feels like we can get anywhere in Tacoma in 15 minutes or less (usually less).”
Bus lines run along South Thompson Ave, and even
more bus options can be found along the bustling South 38th Street. Interstate-5 is a quick 3-minute drive away, and you can be at the
Dome Station in only 6 minutes! (Plus,
there are 2,282 parking spots here for commuters.) Hop on the Sounder Train here and take it all the way into Downtown Seattle.
Iconic, Delicious Eats
Between Pacific Ave and South Thompson Ave (and
right along South 38th Street), a paradise of flavor awaits visitors. “Vien
Dong is probably one of the best and
most famous restaurants in this neighborhood, although there are lots of great Vietnamese restaurants in this area. My favorite dish is #50, the Thai red curry, and you can’t go wrong with Pho, of course.”
Pho is a neighborhood staple, and you’ll also find gems like Cafe La Vie (Vietnamese sandwiches and mouthwatering noodle dishes) Dragon’s Crawfish (Cajun/Creole cuisine, a rarity in Tacoma!), Gari of Sushi (don’t be fooled by the unassuming exterior—this local favorite is known for how fresh everything is), and Taqueria La Fondita (another rave-worthy spot).
“Also, if you like to cook, the Hong Kong Supermarket is fun to visit and find all sorts of international ingredients,” adds the seller. “The kids really like Jubilee for ice cream or lunch out with friends from the neighborhood.”
