Enjoy the sights and sounds of this treasured, single-story home in Proctor. Vintage modern vibes, with lots of clean lines and floor-to-ceiling windows. Well-placed skylights naturally brighten each space and beckon for year-round enjoyment. Hosting is made easy & accessible with multiple stairless entries, a large patio plus ample outdoor space to garden and play! Lavish landscape fashions a calm oasis while being minutes to daily conveniences. Equidistant (7 blocks) from the Metropolitan Market and Jefferson Park. Just outside your door is one of North Tacoma’s most well-traveled urban trails (Mason). Owned by one family for the past 63 years, this estate has been lovingly cared for and enjoyed -- and now it can be yours! Welcome home.


Practically in your backyard is Jefferson Park - enjoy the 15-acre community green area with a sprayground, sports fields & a field house, plus picnic tables, and room to get your furry friend out and about. On clear days you can see the peak of Mount Rainier.

Tacoma is full of parks and trails, but the most popular is the Mason Trail. This trail begins at N 9th Street near the corner of Jefferson Park and ends at N 27th Street. However if you continue along N. Mason Ave, then hang a left on N 37th Street, this will put you on N. Stevens Street. Follow that all the way down to N. 45th Street and you’ll have a pretty good view of Commencement Bay, Vashon Island and Maury Island. It’s 4 miles round trip and offers the best view of homes, gorgeous foliage on the trees in the fall, tons of cherry blossoms in the spring. Just between N. 24th Street and N. 26th on the trail is a fence that has the most colorful painting on it. The trail is loved by walkers, runners, groups, bikers and skaters.

You can’t miss the Proctor Community Garden located at the corner of N Proctor and N 21st Street. Every year they have the best looking tomatoes, gorgeous dahlias and tall, bright yellow sunflowers that beam in the evening sunset light.

Grab your reusable bag and head to the Proctor District located less than a mile away! Step out on a Saturday and head to the Proctor Farmers Market to get all their fresh, locally sourced fruits and veggies. The Farmers Market is running now through December.

This little hub offers lots of locally owned shops for clothing, play, entertainment and dining. Find The Metropolitan Market, Safeway, Knapp’s Restaurant, The Blue Mouse Theatre, Peaks & Pints Craft Beer Store, Pomodoro, East West, Viva, Cactus, Top Pot Doughnuts, Olympia Coffee Roasters and Fernseed, Toast Mi, Lapis, Waffle Stop, Crudo & Cotto, Rudy’s Barbershop and Bliss Ice Cream.

Locals are excited that Ice Cream Social just moved into the neighborhood! It’s time to scoop up all their seasonal fav flavors for fall like pumpkin, chocolate peanut butter cup, Mad Hat Chai, snickerdoodle, and apple cider sorbet. And no matter what flavor you get, you’ll enjoy that every batch is made with natural and local ingredients to make quality ice cream.

This home is also less than a mile from the University of Puget Sound campus (one of the best spots for fall foliage & a cool summer breeze). Every spring UPS hosts a flea market with the Women’ League – you can find around 70+ vendors selling antiques, repurposed items, vintage, jewelry, bath and body goods, home decor, crafts, artwork and food trucks! The $10 admission to get into the event, 100% of the proceeds goes towards student scholarships. They also regularly host concerts and art exhibits.
