"The feature that has been the most enjoyable surprise for me, is the front porch. It's charm and comfort has afforded wonderful conversations with friends and neighbors." 

– Current Homeowner 

Looking for a close knit community with friendly, thoughtful, and reliable neighbors, without feeling bothered? You have found it here in this classic North Slope bungalow on a corner lot.  As you pass through the entry you are greeted by gleaming hardwood floors. The crisp white millwork is original to the home. 

The handsome fireplace has been updated with a convenient gas insert and timeless marble surround. The beautiful mantel spans the length of the room. Period light fixtures maintain the historical charm. 

To the right of the entry is the first bedroom which is currently used as a den. Original French doors are perfect for privacy while still letting the soft ambient natural light through. 

Continue through the living room into the formal dining room. Handsome hardwood floors and crisp white millwork continue. The chair rail is the ideal spot to display your collectables and artwork. Built in butler's pantry is the perfect spot to store your china. The casual elegance is perfect for entertaining. 

Continue through the dining room into the mostly original kitchen. Tile counter tops and backsplash are original to the home 

There is a sunny eating nook and the side door leads to the yard. If you're taking a night off a chef there is a plethora of options within minutes of this North Slope home. You're minutes from bustling 6th Avenue, Engine House 9 is the perfect spot for casual fare, and they are Tacoma's first craft brewery. Masa offers delicious Mexican food and is known for it's nightlife after 10 pm.  Asado is the South Sound's only Argentine themed steakhouse. You're also minutes from Stadium District, you can pick up fixings for dinner at the recently renovated Stadium Thriftway or pick out your favorite cut of meat at Dave's Meat & Produce

The second bedroom is beyond the kitchen and easily accommodates a queen size bed and furnishings. 

Upstairs the attic has been finished to provide more living space! This is the perfect spot for a home office, and the current owner especially enjoys this cozy spot during the winter months. No details were spared in updating the mechanicals of this home. Insulation was added, exterior siding was freshened up, the side sewer line has been replaced, most of the plumbing and electrical have been replaced, and there is a brand new electrical panel. 

The possibilities are endless is the finished attic. Make it your tranquil home office hideaway, a private guest suite, an artistic retreat, playroom, or yoga studio, it's up to you to decide! 

The unfinished basement offers 988 sq. ft. of storage space! This is not your typical dark, dank, and scary basement it houses the high efficiently gas forced air furnace that is only 5 years old and the tankless gas hot water heater (enjoy filling your tub to the brim and never running out of hot water!). Ample space for storage, a home gym, and the washer and dryer down here! 

Step outside and enjoy the sun drenched fully fenced backyard. Add raised beds and grow your own fruit and veggies in this spacious yard. There is plenty of room to play but if you're looking to stretch your legs North Slope Historic District Park is a 7 minute walk away! It features a playground and was originally used as a substation by Tacoma City Light from 1951 to 1983, it's a great spot to let the small ones play. 

The front porch is the perfect spot to observe what's happening in the neighborhood. Pour a glass of wine, or sip a steaming cup of coffee and unwind at the end of the day. Tasteful landscaping and the inviting front porch welcome you home.
