Past the charming coved entry is the spacious living room. This classic post war bunglow was built in 1946. The current owner purchased it in 1949 and lovenly cared for the home while raising his family for the past 66 years. 

The sunny dining area is the perfect spot to enjoy a meal with guests. Under the carpeting you will find the original hardwood floors that have been covered for the majority of their life. 

Beyond the living room is the crisp white kitchen. There is ample natural light and you can peer out the window and see what's happening in the backyard while preparing meals or cleaning up. To the right of the kitchen is the utility room which has extra shelving and access to the backyard.

There are two bedrooms with orignal hardwood floors, with some sprucing up this home could really shine! 

The second bedroom with charming corner windows, which could be the perfect spot for a desk. 

The full bathroom is light and bright with a glazed window and tile tub surround. Note the original doors throughout the home.

Head into the backyard and enjoy the lush landscaping. The many trees provide shaded areas that could be the perfect spot to place a picnic table and escape the summer sun. There is plenty of room to play back here! 

Looking from the back of the home to the detached 1 car garage with room for a shop! The oversized 6,500 sq. ft. corner lot provides room to put in raised beds as well if you desire.

 Garage as seen from the alley. The garage is the perfect spot to store your collector car, keep the lawn equipment, or work on projects. 

Another front view of the oversized corner lot! The front trees are apple, with some TLC perhaps you could have your own mini orchard. Conveniently located off S 38th St in South Tacoma there are a plethora of dining and shopping options within minutes. Starbucks is just up the street, walk there for a fresh brewed cup of coffee or cool off with an iced tea. Lincoln Park is a great place to enjoy the outdoors with picnic sites, a playground, and a significant tree collection. It's a 10 minute drive or walk there in 15! Gray Lumber is 2 blocks away for your lumber, landscaping, and home improvement needs. Head West on S 38th Street and the Tacoma Mall has 150 stores and restaurants to choose from. Head Northeast and you'll find McKinley Park a 26.71 acre park that was one of Tacoma's first parks, founded in 1901. There are paths, playground equipment, and a off-leash demonstration area for pets. For fine dining and a terrific view of downtown Tacoma grab a bite to eat Stanley & Seaforts, a local favorite.
