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

“We’ll miss the neighborhood. The families in our little pocket of homes make the community. One great example is the annual Fourth of July parade and donut party. New owners should join the Tennis Club. It’s the center of the neighborhood, especially in the Summer.”

“We’ve enjoyed this location because the north side of Tacoma Ave is quiet, because no one drives through to get anywhere. And it’s only minutes from the freeway, great grocery stores, the waterfront, Wright Park and Point Defiance Park.”

“When dining out nearby, we like pizza at Hank’s, having beer with neighbors at the Parkway Tavern, fried chicken at the Spar Tavern, everything at Indo Indo Asian Street Eatery, and breakfast at the Art House Cafe. They’re all within walking distance.”

Situated right next to the historical Stadium High School, such amazing history right in your backyard - this historical Tacoma landmark was the filming location for many of the scenes in the 1999 movie 10 Things I Hate About You. Students here test high in math and higher in reading.

Just a few blocks away is a neighborhood favorite, Garfield Park. Tucked behind the Annie Wright School with views of Commencement Bay sits a 5 acre space with a quarter mile of outer track play and fitness equipment, sports courts and a trail that winds through a canopy of trees in the Garfield gulch.

Wright Park is ideal for a leisurely stroll or a quick jog, and is very popular in the summer months as it has a sprayground, playground and plenty of picnic tables. This 27 acre arboretum is home to a rich collection of more than 600 trees - stunning in both the spring & summer when they’re ample and bright green, and impressive in the fall as they change from green to feuille-morte of autumn foliage.
