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

“We’ll miss the large, private backyard, the calla lilies that bloom in the front yard every spring, the two trees in the front yard that are beautiful in the fall.”

We’ve enjoyed this location because there’s access to everything! The grocery store and restaurants are a short walk away, the freeway and Tacoma Mall are very close and I can get almost everywhere in Tacoma in about 10-15 minutes. It really feels like living in the center of town.”

“When dining out nearby we like Vuelve a la Vida! Their enchilada mole is amazing and so is their homemade guacamole.”


Two and a half 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.

Just a mile away and practically in your backyard is the Swan Creek Park & Trail. This 373 acre park is great for walking and mountain biking, a community garden, wooded canyon and upland forest. The river features salmon, the walking trail is 3.7 miles, dogs are allowed but must be leashed and this area is open year round.

This coming summer you can enjoy prime blueberry picking season at Charlotte’s Blueberry Park - 5 minutes away off East D Street, you’ll find more than 3,372 bushes, representing five varieties of blueberry, produce fruit. Picking season typically runs from July through September each year.

The Tacoma Mall is just 5 minutes away. The Tacoma Mall is the largest shopping center in Tacoma and has over 150 stores and restaurants - shop & have a little lunch at Nordstrom. This home is also close to Costco for all your bulk food and home shopping needs.

Moctezuma’s Mexican Restaurant has amazing happy hour and margaritas, but you can also stay in and order take out for Taco Tuesday at home while you catch up on all your shows. And don’t forget to order dessert too - they have a tasty Mexican brownie that comes with vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of kahlua cream sauce on top!
