A little from the sellers about the location, and what they’ll miss about the neighborhood -

“ We’ll miss the way the natural light lit up the living and dining room, being just a moment from the freeway, having grocery store options within a 5 minute drive, the craftsmanship of the built-ins and craftsman features, and the smell of a fire that warms the house in the winter. We also enjoy that this location has easy access to the freeway from multiple entry points.

“There are two small cherry blossom bushes in the front that let you know when Spring has sprung and a small garden box on the side that produced delicious vegetables in the Summer.”

“We’ve enjoyed this neighborhood because The neighbors in the yellow house are amazing (he makes the best freezer jam). There is an active Safe Streets group. The street is quiet and kind and will surely be missed.”

“When dining out nearby, we enjoyed Dusty’s Hideaway for a burger and tota, and also where our child could play on a little jungle gym in the back. We also enjoyed brunch or nachos at the Top of Tacoma.”


Two miles away, you’ll find Wapato Park - an urban park featuring a woodland area, a lake, walking trail, plus a historic pergola full of stunning and colorful. Wapato has a number of trails that you can walk to explore the park, including one circling the lake that is approx .9 miles in length and you can’t beat the beautiful setting of the lake and forest. It’s best and most popular feature though is the off leash dog park! The off leash dog area has a smaller area for puppers under 25 pounds, a space for larger pups and an upper dog area for all dogs. The park also provides waste bag stations and garbage bins to help keep the park clean. Water is also available for the pups, there’s a water faucet and bowl.

The Lincoln District is just minutes away!

Plenty of places to eat around here by local, family owned establishments and hard-to-find international items at several specialty markets.

On the corner of S Yakima Ave and S 38th St is Vien Dong – an authentic Vietnamese, family owned restaurant that hits the spot with their delicious pho, curry and noodle dishes! If you’re craving a burger, shake and fries – you have two to choose from and they sit across the street from each other, Jubilee Burger and Burger Ranch. Both equally popular and delicious.

Spruce up your yard or home with the help of the Portland Avenue Nursery - they specialize in rare trees & plants as well as cedar furniture & landscape decor.
