Home has been owned by the same family for the past 30+ years. The rose garden, when in it’s prime, was a sight to behold. Really stunning and admired by the neighbors. With a little trimming these mature plants, it could be glorious once again. Whether you dream of having your own garden beds, space for outdoor entertaining or just outdoor privacy, it is here. The large lot also has space for a detached garage and has great paved alley access.
Dream of Remodeling?
This fixer upper offers you the opportunity to live in a convenient Tacoma location AND create the home of your dreams! If remodeling a home sounds like something you’re seriously considering, you’re not alone—according to a report from March 2019 on Trulia, a whopping 90% of homeowners plan to remodel their home. Maybe it’s thanks to the popularity of HGTV, but being able to curate a home that perfectly suits your style and needs is an appealing prospect for many buyers.
