3 BEDROOM HOME IN NORTH TACOMA
Here’s a chance to make home in the North End—home just a few blocks from Proctor markets, schools and cafes. A classic covered porch opens to oak hardwoods in the living and dining area with its coved ceiling. Freshly painted inside and out, this Craftsman house is set and ready with new floors in the kitchen and bath, double-pane windows, a gas furnace to warm you through winter, and a gas range to keep you cooking. Come settle-down, set a table in the eat-in kitchen, tuck boots, hats and houseplants in the bright, south-facing enclosed porch. One bedroom rests on the main floor, two more wait above, while plenty of storage and laundry space stand ready in the basement below. A fully fenced back yard offers room to build a garage, to plant and to play.
We love that this home is just blocks from the Proctor Farmers Market making it super easy to get fresh, locally sourced fruits and veggies, plus other locally made food and crafts. (The Farmers Market is running now through December). Locals are excited that Ice Cream Social just moved into the neighborhood! It’s time to scoop up all their seasonal favorite flavors for fall like sweet potato & marshmallow, Mad Hat Chai, snickerdoodle, and apple cider sorbet. Proctor has one of Tacoma’s highest Walk Scores, which means nearly every service and amenity you could need is within blocks of it’s hub.
The rainy season is the perfect time to start planning your garden for next year! Good thing your new home is less than a mile away from Gardensphere and the Wheelock Library. Research what you want to plant, and reserve books online for curbside pickup (you can also register for a library card online, download the Libby app and enjoy e-books from home!) In addition to having knowledgeable staff and a great assortment of specialty plants, Gardensphere is also known for their holiday tree delivery service.
This location also has a very high Bike Score; Stevens Street has a nice bike lane that will take you down towards Ruston, or South to Central Tacoma (this is an awesome way to commute to a Rainier’s game in the Summer!) You can also hook up with the bike lane on North 21st, which is a Bike Boulevard. Check out Tacoma’s current and planned network of bike lanes here.
