Fully renovated in 2018, this mid-century South Tacoma home blends quality original features and tasteful modern finishings. Oak hardwood floors span the common living, dining and bedrooms, while ceramic tile runs the length of the kitchen to the backdoor. The backyard space is made incredibly usable with its flat terrain, not one, but TWO patios and blossoming cherry trees. Additionally, the private alley access makes way for a future detached dwelling or garage. Downstairs, the high ceilings and insulated floor joists create a very comfortable flex space for storage, hobbies and beyond. Conveniently located near shopping, the interstate and some of Tacoma's best parks. This 1949 cottage is as endearing as it is practical. Welcome Home.
