Backyard Bliss & Opportunity in South Tacoma

Fully renovated in 2018, this mid-century South Tacoma home blends quality original features and tasteful modern finishings. Oak hardwood floors span the common living, dining and bedrooms, while ceramic tile runs the length of the kitchen to the backdoor. The backyard space is made incredibly usable with its flat terrain, not one, but TWO patios and blossoming cherry trees. Additionally, the private alley access makes way for a future detached dwelling or garage. Downstairs, the high ceilings and insulated floor joists create a very comfortable flex space for storage, hobbies and beyond. Conveniently located near shopping, the interstate and some of Tacoma’s best parks. This 1949 cottage is as endearing as it is practical. Welcome Home.

Fully fenced backyard w/ alley access + room to build

If you’ve been following me for a while, you are familiar with Home in Tacoma and the newly revised building code in Tacoma and Washington State at large. The alley access provides incredible access to build the garage and/or additional dwelling unit (ADU). With two patios, you would still still have room for green space and social gatherings outside.

The current owner has hosted many social gatherings for herself and her son. For a birthday celebration, tents were pitched and projector installed. The kids watched movies, and enjoyed a fun slumber party. Surely a memory they will not forget.

Fruiting Cheery trees, and mature magnolia tree provide great canopy coverage and shade.
