Very rarely do we receive the opportunity to purchase a home that is affordable, updated and within the heart of 6th avenue, Tacoma. The owner thoughtfully renovated the kitchen. Not only did she remove the wall that separated the kitchen and living room, she installed new flooring and painted throughout (I love her palette selection!) One of the two bedrooms has French doors, opening to the living room. I love the functionality this adds to the home. Open the French doors and utilize it when hosting larger parties. The front yard is extremely large and flat. You’re friends will likely nominate you to host summer parties and festivals but your home and yard make It easy!

Just around the corner along 6th Ave is Beer Star – Tacoma’s newest, cool all-ages beer hall boasting 40 local taps & an expansive, 80-seat outdoor space.
