Come as you are and fall in love with this adorable South Tacoma 3BR bungalow with close proximity to Wapato Park (and the once Community World Theater where Nirvana played their first show as “Nirvana ” in 1988). This 1927 home retains many of its charming original details including living room hardwood floors, beautiful arched wood-burning fireplace with mantel and built-in bookcase, as well as built-in storage, wide baseboards, wood-wrapped windows and picture rail in main level primary and 2nd bedrooms. New carpet, new interior paint, newer roof. Attic features a finished room & loft area...a perfect place to rock out. Detached 1-car garage with alley access. Great location with easy access to I-5, close to parks, shopping & restaurants.


“I have many fond memories, this was my childhood home. Memories of my mom cooking breakfast and the smell rising upstairs to my bedroom brings a smile to my face. Helping my Dad in the garage working on my car and mowing the lawn.”

“The yard has rose bushes in the backyard, a designated garden area, and multiple plants around the front and side of the house.”

“Alling Park was my favorite park nearby. It’s right at the end of my street and all my friends and I would go there to play everyday. There’s also Wapato Park that’s only a couple minutes from my house which is great for walking dogs. The house has very easy access to freeways and shopping including many coffee shops and stands. Through the years the neighbors have always been very nice and helpful. The mailman goes door to door and has always stopped to say hello or wave.”


A mile away, you’ll find Wapato Park - an urban park featuring a woodland area, a lake, walking trail, plus a historic pergola full of stunning and colorful scenery. Wapato has a number of trails that you can walk to explore the park, including one circling the lake that is approx .9 miles in length and you can’t beat the beautiful setting of the lake and forest. It’s best and most popular feature though is the off leash dog park! The off leash dog area has a smaller area for pups under 25 pounds, a space for larger pups and an upper dog area for all dogs. The park also provides waste bag stations and garbage bins to help keep the park clean. Water is also available for the pups, there’s a water faucet and bowl.

Head on over to Zen Ramen & Sushi Burrito. It’s a local favorite spot for a fun ramen experience in the greater Tacoma area. The menu offers full and bright flavors via ramen bowls, poke bowls, dupbap, sushi burritos and their appetizers.

This coming summer you can enjoy prime blueberry picking season at Charlotte’s Blueberry Park - 5 minutes away off East D Street, you’ll find more than 3,372 bushes, representing five varieties of blueberry producing fruit. Picking season typically runs from July through September each year.

This location is amazing! Easy freeway access to I-5 North and South. We have the Tacoma Mall 10 minutes away, not to mention 24 Hour Fitness, Safeway and several banks/credit unions just 5 minutes away. There are dozens of restaurants within a little more than a mile down Pacific Avenue. The University of Washington Tacoma is also down the street, along with LeMay - America’s Car Museum, Tacoma Art Museum, The Museum of Glass as well as the Washington State History Museum.

Need a night out? Check out the Emerald Queen Casino in Fife, a popular local spot as well as a favorite concert and entertainment destination in the Pacific Northwest region.
