Immaculate Remodeled Craftsman with Original Character Intact!

4827 6th Avenue, Tacoma WA 98406 

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom 

1,735 Sq Feet, 6,000 Sq Foot Lot 

Offered For: $415,000

MLS#1378595

Immaculate modern craftsman, completely remodeled in 2017, with original charm intact! This home has so many updates to boast of, including a new roof (complete tear off job), electrical and plumbing work, and retrofitting in the crawlspace. This home didn’t just get new windows, paint, and remodeled bathroom+kitchen- it got a whole makeover! The siding is new, hardieplank, and the sellers installed a privacy fence when they bought it. 

Location is key! Close to all of the fun found on  6th Avenue , but located on the calmer block, lined with trees. Between being situated on the portion of 6th Avenue with less hustle and bustle, the home being planted on a hill above the street, and the privacy fence, you don’t feel like you’re on a busy street! Plus, you have the entertainment spaces in the back yard, and the garage+ gravel parking area, with plenty of room for you and guests to park.

Pop on over to Valhalla Coffee for some of the most delicious, local craft coffee. Tacoma has so many parks! This home is located near Jefferson Park

Right when you enter the home you are greeted by 9 foot high ceilings, and a bright, modern, open floor plan! 

The fireplace was beautifully rehabbed, and a new gas insert installed. The sellers recently had it inspected, and serviced; it is in full working order for this winter. 

Through the living room, you enter the dining room space, bonus room, and kitchen. These are all distinct spaces, but with an open flow. The seller expressed how much she appreciates the flexibility of the spaces, in addition to the brightness and openness. It just feels so clean, and bright!

The bonus room is currently being used as a craft-room/ art space, but could be used as a home office, playroom, library, etc. The ample natural light in this space, in combination with the view of the trees lining the street outside, is great for creative inspiration, and mental clarity. 

The kitchen is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Modern, spacious, and bright, with newer stainless steel appliances. Cute bar space to sip coffee at, chat with the chef, or enjoy a casual breakfast. 

Original Butlers Pantry was restored, and served as the inspiration for the rest of the kitchen. 

This is the first bedroom, which is located on the first floor. Sellers currently use this as their guest room, and remarked that their friends always comment on how great they sleep in this room. Peaceful, comfortable, and quiet.

The bathroom is located on the main floor, and has plenty of storage space! 

Two of the bedrooms are located upstairs. There is a bonus space, to the left of the stairs. The sellers currently have it set up as a quiet reading space. 

When the sellers viewed the home back when they purchased it, one of the details they loved and noted was the brightness, and calm vibes found upstairs.

There is one bedroom facing the front of the house, and one facing the back. This is the room that faces the front.

This is the room that faces the backyard. Could be used as bedroom, or an office.

 

The outdoor space like the indoor space, is versatile, functional, and sleek! The sellers created multiple spaces for entertaining, and relaxing. 

Darling artwork that the sellers secured to the boards are included in the sale of the home.

 

Garden space out back! 

There is a lounge space out the back door, on the deck. Sellers recently had it re-planked, and painted. 

Large, new, heated 3 car garage! Tons of space for cars, motorcycles, tools, gear, and storage. You could set up a fitness center, or a workshop. Lots of parking available out-front on the street, in addition to garage+gravel parking space off of alley.

2 Bedroom North Slope Condo

1120 N K Street #7, Tacoma WA 98403 

Square Footage: 638

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath

HOA: $225 per month, 2 pets allowed up to 30 pounds each

Offered for $205,000

MLS# 1348966

Live in the North Slope District, affordably! This condo is in a fantastic location. You’re a couple of minutes from the Stadium District, and the Three Bridges District, but tucked away in a quiet neighborhood; the best of both worlds!

Three Bridges District is located down a few streets, on N I Street, and includes a local coffee shop, pizza place, and Dave’s Meat and Produce. Stadium District has many things to offer, including the lovely Wright Park, Stadium Thriftway for your groceries, and the newest addition to the Stadium Neighborhood, Anthem Coffee. If you want to go out for fancy drinks in the Stadium District, check out Indo Asian Street Eatery. Looking for a burger and shake?… check out Shake Shake Shake! 

Drive 5 minutes in the other direction to go to the lively 6th Avenue strip with coffee shops, grocery stores, and restaurants. Red Hot and Ice Cream Social are a couple of my favorite gems on 6th Avenue. Who doesn’t like gourmet hot dogs (veggie dog for me, please!), craft beer, and ice cream made with local ingredients? When it comes to coffee, you will find a few local favorites on this strip, including Valhalla Coffee, and Bluebeard.

What I love about this condo, is the functional layout. As someone who prefers smaller homes, I appreciate when the space is laid out in a way that maximizes all of the space.

The openness of the kitchen and living space is one of my favorite parts of this condo. With many condos under one thousand square feet, you typically see smaller galley kitchens, or closed off, small box-type kitchens which I call “cubby kitchens.” This kitchen is open, with plenty of counter and storage space. You don’t feel like you are sacrificing on having a nice, functional kitchen!

First bedroom is located straight through the living room, to the left. Sellers added storage and organizers in the closets for maximum functionality. 

The bathroom is located conveniently between the two bedrooms. Cute tile in the bath/shower that extends all the way up the wall. 

The second bedroom is on the other side of the bathroom. The light colored bamboo floors, and paint give the condo a clean, cheerful feel.

The sellers really took care in preparing this condo for sale. They told me about how they would watch fireworks from the balcony on the 4th of July, and how it was the first place they had ever purchased. 

A few other noteworthy mentions- HOA includes sewer and garbage. There is a communal storage room at the end of the second floor of the building, towards the alley. A new roof was put on in the last few years, new water heater installed last fall, and the interior freshly painted.

If you have any additional questions, feel free to pop me a text at (253) 691-0688.

Centrally Located 4 Bed, 1 Bath Home in Tacoma

1601 S Adams, Tacoma WA 98405

Square Footage: 1,280

4 bedrooms, 1 bath, with two bedrooms located on the main level, and two bedrooms upstairs

Offered for $299,950

MLS# 1289979

Many updates to boast of in this centrally located home! Be close to it all, while having peace of mind that the main systems are good to go. There is a new electric panel, roof, heat pump, and water heater. French doors installed off of the kitchen, leading into the oasis of a backyard! New deck, and gravel patio, as well as a large garage out back. Great flow for entertaining. Seller expressed that some of her best memories here were hosting dinner parties on the deck in the summer. 

Seller will miss walking to Cheney Stadium to catch a baseball game, and walking to the 6th avenue district, “We loved walking to Valhalla Coffee on 6th and Proctor, and frequented the restaurants of Primo Grill, Asado, and the Red Hot. Fred Meyers is just a hop, skip, and a jump away from groceries.”

The seller is a local artist, who originally picked this house to call home based on the location, “I was commuting to Seattle and wanted easy access to the freeways.” She also mentioned that the layout was ideal, “I liked the kitchen opening right into the dining room and the flat, easy to maintain yard.” 

When I asked about some of the memories she has in this home, she mentioned 20 person dinner parties on the deck and patio in the summer, piano playing parties with wine tasting in the front room. She says she will especially miss the deck, garden, and workshop outback, and of course, the AC!

2 Homes on One Parcel in the Heart of the Lincoln District


At a Glance:

Front House: 3812 S Thompson

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms

Sq Footage: 1,600

Currently Rented for: $1,490

Back House: 3810 S Thompson

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom

Sq Footage: 1,200

Previously Rented For: $1,095

MLS# 1255871

Two homes for the price of one, located in the heart of the Lincoln District! Front home is a spacious craftsman, with tall ceilings, large bedrooms, and an unfinished basement.  The home in the back is also quite spacious, and has newer flooring. There is a private parking pad off of the alley for the back house, and a driveway for the front home.

Easily rent both out, or live in one, and rent out the other. Great property for families who would like to live close to one another.

The houses share a backyard, but are separated by a privacy fence, so that occupants can have privacy. It allows tenants or occupants with pets to let their dogs out, without disturbing those in the other house.

These homes are in the center of it all, in the Lincoln District. Travel right next door to Jubilee Burgers, or 2 blocks to Vien Dong, a local, family owned Vietnamese restaurant. One of the best Torta shops, El Zocalo, is one block further. If you are a sushi lover, Gari of Sushi is 2 minutes, the other direction. There are many grocery stores nearby as well, including Safeway, East Asia Market, and Hong Kong Market. All under a 5 min drive! The location is close to the freeway, so it makes commuting a breeze.

The Lincoln District has been undergoing a revitalization project. This project includes pedestrian, and infrastructure improvements. Read more about it, here.

Front home has tall ceilings, charming built-ins, and spacious rooms.

Upstairs there are two more bedrooms, and a large second bathroom.

Back home is off of the alley and has a garage, and private parking pad through a roller gate.

Front house is in much better condition, but the back home just needs your vision to make it home! Since it is not possible to build an ADU in Tacoma for the time being, this is great for the financially savvy buyer who wants to rent out a portion of their investment.

This Victorian home is located in Central Tacoma, near 6th avenue! The roof is brand new, as well as the flooring both on the main floor and upstairs, and there is fresh interior paint throughout! Right when you walk in, the bay windows provide tons of natural light and the 10 foot high ceilings add to it’s spacious, bright, and open feel. There is an unfinished basement, with ample storage space, along with the storage shed out back. Yard is fully fenced with deck for entertaining. Seller says,

“I will miss it’s Central location, it is easy to get to freeways and shopping.With 6th avenue so close we often walk down to Ice Cream Social, E-9, The Red Hot, & Blue Beard Coffee.  We would often walk down to Franklin Park/ School and play on the play ground there and in the splash park in the summer. University of Puget Sound is not too far away either and is great for learning to ride a bike.”

The windows have light pouring in from all directions, which is one element the seller will miss the most,

“All of the natural light, if the sun is shining, it is usually streaming in one of the windows of the house from sun-up to sun-down. I also really enjoy the open living area in the house, it can and has been configured in many different ways.”

Off of the dining area are french doors that lead to the deck and side yard. The door to the left goes into the large, unfinished basement, which the sellers are currently using for storage.

One of the memories the seller shared with me was the moments using the deck and yard,

“The dogs playing in the yard, and family “happy hour” on the deck, where all three of us have our drink of choice and discuss our favorite parts of movies, talk about our day or even just all read together.”

The Kitchen is open to the living room, with a charming peek-a-boo window to the right, looking into the kitchen.

The kitchen is bright, and spacious! I asked the seller about some of her favorite memories in the house,

 “My daughter taking her first steps in the living room, carving pumpkins on the kitchen floor..”

If you are someone who cares about the history of a home, this one is certainly loved and full of happy memories.

There are two bathrooms, one on the main floor, and one upstairs. This is the main floor bathroom.

The staircase is located at the entrance of the home.

To the left is the room with the bathroom…
