Imagine the stunning presence of this mid century modern home as it was completed in 1962 while the World Fair came to Seattle. Designed by Robert Price, a Tacoma native, it is an island of tranquility rarely found in the city. 

Enter into the light filled foyer. Up stairs you will find fabulous living spaces with breathtaking views of the Tacoma Narrows waterway, vine maple and the evergreen forest beyond. 

"The sense of being out in the great northwest, surrounded by trees, Puget Sound, mountains and nature, while sitting in the warmth and comfort of a great house … there is nothing better than spending time in a spectacular example of northwest modernism." – R. Johnston

Gaze out to the Tacoma Narrows waterway and watch the weather roll in.  Enjoy breathtaking sunsets from the large Western exposure deck. Feel as though you are in the trees from this secluded perch. 

Continue into the dining room with a period built in buffet still intact. Open the sliding doors and let the outdoors in. 

The large kitchen is bathed in natural light and offers more stunning views. If you're taking a night off as chef you can easily drop down to Steamers  for some of their famous fish & chips, Boathouse 19 to take in a great view of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge, or head over to Narrows Brewing Company to enjoy one of their craft brews! 

The spacious master suite is open to the foyer, but could easily be enclosed to have a seperate den / office where the beam is shown, and a fully enclosed master bedroom. The possibilities are endless in this spectacular home. 

The lower level has 3 additional bedrooms and a full bathroom, perfect for your guests to cleanup after taking a dip in the heated in-ground pool. Take your vacation at home! 

The lower level family room also has a wood burning fireplace to keep you cozy. Enjoy a crackling fire during the sometimes dreary winter days. No matter the weather this home is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy nature. 

Attached carport to keep the collectable out of the rain; neatly tuck waste bins and yard equipment away in the closets.
