Listing by NWMLS / Windermere Abode



Here is your chance to own a Queen Anne Style row house in the South J Street Historic District, much like a Painted Lady in San Francisco! You will love the lofty nine-and-a-half-foot ceilings and the immense open feeling of the living spaces. It’s all in the details: giant box bay windows, lovely pocket doors from the parlor to the large dining room, a gorgeous staircase and fixtures. There are three bedrooms upstairs with a walk-in closet in the primary bedroom. The French doors off of the updated kitchen open up to a private backyard retreat that invites one to enjoy the porch, deck, and landscaped yard. Awesome insulated two-car detached garage and plenty of storage throughout. Don’t miss this truly spectacular home!


“I’ll miss sitting in the backyard with both French doors wide open. I’ll miss the gas fireplace in the living room on a cool winter evening. I remember one Christmas with my daughters, we had a beautiful Christmas tree and a fire going. The backyard is a wonderful private oasis especially after a hard day’s work.”

“I always enjoyed walking around Wright Park with all their magnificent trees. Also, walking to The Grand Cinema.”

“Any breakfast at the HobNob was always a treat. My daughters loved Shake Shake Shake at the far end of the park.”


Having all these delicious eateries close by, means you’ll probably enjoy having a park just minutes away! Wright Park is ideal for a leisurely stroll or a quick walk, and is very popular in the summer months as it has a free 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 all the fall colors. WW Seymour Conservatory is a community treasure, hosting events throughout the year and a rotating assortment of seasonal flowers.

Just minutes from the Stadium District - Stadium Thriftway for groceries, Rhein Haus Restaurant (German Cuisine), Morrell’s Dry Cleaners, Anthem Coffee & Tea and so much more!

Indo Asian Street Eatery is a rustic-chic spot for meeting up with friends for happy hour! They’ve got all sorts of yummy street snacks like fresh spring rolls, egg rolls, fritters, hot wings and togarashi fried calamari that’s perfect for sharing. They also have a variety of curries, rice and noodle bowls that you’ll enjoy too!

From live theater, to independent and foreign films, to up and coming comedy acts, there are diverse entertainment options all within 5 minutes of your home! The Grand Cinema is next door to Corina Bakery. Discover first-run independent and foreign films playing in downtown Tacoma at this nonprofit, volunteer supported cinema. They feature local products in concessions and are open 365 days a year thanks to the dedicated volunteers and members. It’s the place to go when you’re checking off your Oscars ballot.
