Imagine cozying up in a chair with a great book or visiting with a best friend in this living room that features lovely wood wrapped windows and an abundance of natural light.

Everywhere your eyes take you will be details unmatched. Even a staircase can make for a beautiful focal point in a home!

 

Pass into the formal dining room and notice the wood wrapped doorways and french doors that lead to the expansive decking. This home has been updated with new interior paint in pleasing, contemporary colors that sooth and relax. Just imagine the gatherings you will have here and new memories that will be made in your home…

The custom wooden decor in the half bath on the main floor is stunning! It only shows the continued level of attention to detail and not a single room or space was forgotten.

And since we are talking about convenience, the laminate hardwoods on the main floor will be a snap to clean with a Swiffer! No messy carpets in high traffic areas to worry about!

The bedroom on the main floor is delightful with new paint and carpet, but if you don’t really need 3 bedrooms, this room located just off the formal dining would also make for an excellent den, office or bonus media room. What would you use this room for?

 

Head up the custom designed stairway and find the first bedroom you may want to claim as yours when you see the vaulted ceiling and french doors that lead out to the balcony. Let’s see what is beyond these french doors….

Hello Morning! How does a morning with a great cup of coffee sound to start the day out here while listening to the birds cheerfully singing you awake? Or even after a long day.. why not relax and unwind with your favorite glass of relaxation here and admire the beautiful neighborhood from above!

The second floor also features a light, bright and cheerful bath with crisp white wainscoting and a skylight so you can bathe or shower in the natural light (and in your own natural beauty!).

 

The third bedroom features more of the custom wood work in this accent wall with double windows and wood wrapping, of course. All new carpet here, too.

This is the third bedroom closet and the ceiling fan in here will keep you cool while you slumber through the summer 🙂

 

Head outside to the expansive deck that can be accessed by the front porch, the stairs from the balcony or the french doors from this dining room. It is so convenient to have a deck that wraps around the home and also you can say it is less yard to mow. Spend more time doing what you love!

 

And finally, if you’ve been searching for a home with plenty of off street parking, well, you found it just outside the 2 car detached garage with alley access. Take this gate to the kitchen door or the door from inside the garage to load in your groceries with ease!

Located just minutes from 6th Avenue , Old Town Tacoma, UPS and the charming Proctor District is the home of your dreams! There are a plethora of dining and shopping choices nearby, many you can walk to! If you’re in the mood for a great hotdog and a cold brewsky, just walk on down to Red Hot Tacoma and get your dog done right! And after that when you’ve got a hankerin for some quality dessert, walk over to another locally owned spot called Ice Cream Social and enjoy a hand crafted ice cream made from locally sourced ingredients. Yum! Yum!

Living here you don’t want to miss the Proctor  Farmer’s Market on Saturdays where you can find fresh local produce, meats, cheeses, and flowers. Enjoy the outdoors? Take a leisurely stroll down to Wright Park and enjoy 27 acres of beautiful trees, a playground and a splashground to keep the littles cool in the summer!  Feeling more adventurous?
