Travel back in time with this fabulous mid-century rambler on the edge of Tacoma. Beautifully constructed with abundant built-ins, vaulted ceilings and exposed wood beams, allowing for an open, flowing design. Lives as well today as it did in 1961 when it was built as a “Gold Medallion Home” with features like a central vac and generous mud room. Recently updated with a new roof, fresh interior paint and new flooring throughout. Split layout with 2 bedrooms on one end of the home and a 3rd bedroom or bonus room at the other end adjacent to the laundry - great potential for a primary suite. Large picture windows overlook a level, fenced 9,000 sf lot. Great opportunity to purchase a unique midcentury home at an attainable price point!


Date night is easy when delicious Marzano’s Italian is so close by! Situated in a quaint, remodeled house with a native Italian owner, so you know it’s authentique! Enjoy fresh and handmade pasta and pizza on the best dough, incredible fresh seafood, calabrian and bolognese sauces that are full of so much flavor and perfectly braised meats. Or the highly rated Citron European Bistro which offers French, German & other European fare (such as wiener schnitzel & beef bourguignon).

If you’re looking for a special spot to dine out, look no further than Tibbits at Fern Hill! This quaint, little spot is highly rated (more than 400 5 star reviews on Yelp and counting!) and there’s a reason why. There are only 9 tables in this establishment so you’ll need a reservation to give it a try, but it’s worth the wait when you finally get to savor the apple cinnamon french toast, the lobster bomb, sandwiches and salads, pancakes that look like they’re being served to royalty and other tasty things smothered in gravy.

Or on those rainy days, take it indoors to the Sprinker Recreation Center - for ice skating, hockey, tennis, racquetball, pickleball, ping pong, basketball, softball & baseball, and skateboarding - there’s something here for everyone!

This home is conveniently located near Pacific Lutheran University sitting less than 2 miles away. Pacific Lutheran University is a private Lutheran University. It was founded by Norwegian Lutheran pioneers in 1890. PLU is sponsored by the 580 congregations of Region I of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. PLU has approximately 3,100 students enrolled.
