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

“We will miss our wonderful neighbors, the fact that this house is close to every local major highway, the bird families in the backyard every spring (hummingbirds and others), being able to walk to the International District for pho, the thoughtful details we added over the years (especially the heated floors!) The yard has a cherry tree in front; HAWCS neighborhood annual block party; slight view of Mount Rainier from the roof deck.”

“There is a Chinese New Year celebration and parade every year in the Lincoln District just a few blocks from our house. There are also Monkeyshines hidden near our house every year around 38th.”

“We’ve enjoyed this location because it’s central to everything, Lincoln District has special events, Wapato Park is amazing, there are some great restaurants and stores within walking distance on 38th.”

“When dining out nearby, the Tacoma Mall is super close and has so many good options, but we really like the smaller Vietnamese restaurants on 38th like Vien Dong and Pho Dragon. We also like Burger Ranch and Jubilee Burgers for fast food and milkshakes.”


The Lincoln District is just minutes away! The Lincoln International District is an incredible blend of historic buildings and cultural diversity and has a high Walkscore. Don’t let the current construction work keep you from visiting this neighborhood. When the work is completed in January 2018 this neighborhood will become even more pedestrian friendly. Find out more about the Lincoln District Streetscape Project here! Plenty of places to eat around here by local, family owned establishments and hard-to-find international items at several specialty markets. The Lincoln District also celebrates the TET New Year Festival – check their Facebook page for more info on the date of this event, which generally occurs in February.

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 looking for hard-to-find international items that local grocery chains don’t carry, you’re in luck – there are several stores with fresh produce and food. If you’ve ever wanted to try Jackfruit, the East Asia Supermarket carries them and is just 2 blocks away! Four blocks away is the Hong Kong Supermarket where you can buy whole roasted duck and pork, delicious Mooncakes – traditionally eaten during the Mid-Autumn Festival, kitchen gadgets you didn’t think you needed and an assortment of sauces to make any Asian dish more authentic.

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.

This home is conveniently located near the freeway - great for commuters with easy access to I-5 and Hwy 16! Or use public transportation to get around downtown or Tacoma on the Tacoma Link light rail. Catch the Sounder Train at the Tacoma Dome Station northbound to Seattle - it’s convenient, cheap (about $5 to ride) and less of a hassle than sitting in I-5 traffic for events or commuting! Both are just two miles away.
