"My hope is that this lovely home will be loved and cared for; enjoyed for many years to come and that it will be apart of a new family's growth and joy in creating many wonderful, special memories. This home has been an ideal nest for my family." – Kim C., current home owner


Located in the coveted and walkable Procter District of the North End of Tacoma this 3,351 finished Sq. Ft. Tudor has been lovingly updated and upgraded from the inside out. From the slate entry stoop to the custom cherry cabinets no detail has been overlooked. Four spacious bedrooms including a private, master suite that overlooks the serene, landscaped backyard and out across Commencement Bay. 

Enter into the gracious light filled living room with gleaming hardwood floors and a wood burning fireplace. 

The den is pictured above and would make a great study, library, playroom or…? 

Continue through the living room into the formal dining room. The floor plan is inviting and draws you back into the heart of this home; the remodeled kitchen. 

Warm and inviting kitchen that is functional and comfortable, with high end finishes such as custom cherry cabinets, slab granite counters, and stainless steel appliances including a Viking range/oven. This kitchen will please even the most discerning eye. Gather around the large center island before walking to the Proctor Farmer's Market  for fresh local produce, meats, cheeses, and flowers. If you're the taking a night off as chef grab a bite to eat at one of the local resturants such as Pomodoro, Europa Bistro, or La Fondita. Stop at Puget Park, one of the first parks donated to the City of Tacoma, on your way to Proctor District, or go for a urban hike through the Puget Gulch down to the Ruston Way waterfront area. You may even see some salmon spawning in the creek!

The spacious kitchen also has an informal dining area that overlooks the landscaped backyard and flows into the family room. Wood beamed ceilings, slate tile floors, and soft natural light draw you in. 

The family room which is directly off the kitchen overlooks the landscaped yard. The wood beams and cherry cabinets continue into this flex space. 

At the top of the stairs is a wonderful loft area with stunning and inspiring Commencement Bay views. Use this space as an artistic retreat, a quiet reading nook, or the perfect spot to practice your sun salutations and prepare for a class at Yoga Palace in Proctor district. 

Close up of the view of Commencement Bay. You can see Mt. Baker peeking out in the far left corner! Imagine waking up to this every day. Pull on your tennis shoes and head down N 36th St to the Tacoma Waterfront. It's less than a mile walk to some of Tacoma's finest waterfront resturants such as C.I. Shenanigans, or Harbor Lights. Ride your bike to Point Defiance Park, a 765 acre city park, or hop on a ferry to Vashon Island for a day trip. 

There is an abundance of natural light in the serene master suite. Peak out the windows and take in the view of Commencement Bay while overlooking the landscaped backyard. 

Handsome spa like master suite with marble countertops, custom cherry cabinets, a walk in shower (behind the glass blocks) and a seprerate tub for soaking your worries away. 

Open the French doors in the kitchen and let the outdoors in! Enjoy the tranquility in your own backyard with specimen trees that have been tenderly cared for, roast marshmallows over a fire pit, and watch the fireworks on the 4th of July! The 2 car detached garage is accessed by the newly paved alley. 

With a fabulous location, upgrades throughout, and a fully landscaped yard this home is a must see.
