Day Island Living

Do you find yourself yearning for a quiet, slower pace of living with breathtaking views of the Tacoma Narrow and the Bridges, Olympic Mountains,  and stunning sunrises and sunsets while still being minutes away from town? Day Island may be just what you've been searching for. Originally an island used for duck and  shellfish hunting it was turned into a peninsula in 1903 when Northern Pacific Railway filled in the distance from the south spit to Lemon's Beach with rocks. The original bridge to the island was located at South 19th Street and you can see it's remnants on the northeast side of the island, 19th St W. Today the bridge to access Day Island is at 27th St W, and upon passing over the bridge you can feel your worries slip away, you're on island time now. 

 In 1907 Day Island began to take shape as we know it today, the island was developed into 60' lots and they sold for $600 each. Day Island is home to the Day Island Club which changed from a mandatory membership for water rights into a voluntary club for the residents when Tacoma Water was installed on the island. The club hosts various activities for the community throughout the year at the club house. Day Island is rich with history and was the home of the famous Willit Brothers and their wooden canoe factory. 

This incredibly unique community is home to the Day Island Yacht Club which was established in 1949 and today offers member owned tidelands and moorage. Day Island has one way in, and one way out, less you are traveling by boat of course. The island is split into 3 sections, the southern spit which lies closest to the railroad tracks, Day Island Blvd W sits on the west side of the island and offering western exposure to sun seekers but at home moorage is not available.  Sitting within a protected cove, E Day Island Blvd W, offers at home moorage, and breathtaking sunrises with relief from the scorching evening sun. 1933 E Day Island Blvd W, offers the quintessential pacific northwest lifestyle with deep water moorage at your personal dock, 3,122 sq. ft., 3 bedrooms / 3.5 bathrooms and a detached garage with the option to add a 4th bedroom or use it as a studio.  

Imagine waking up and drinking a steaming cup of coffee or tea from the dreamy second floor master suite as you welcome day break meander down to the sun drench deck and out to your boat, never having to leave home. With the private dock you can enjoy boating, fishing, crabbing, shrimping, or cruising to your favorite restaurant such as Tide's Tavern or Boathouse 19.  Offered for $769,950 the history and friendliness of Day Island is a unique waterfront opportunity not found anywhere else in Pierce county.
