Charming rambler on a corner lot in South Tacoma’s popular Lincoln neighborhood. Convenient to the freeways, Downtown Tacoma and so many local restaurants and businesses (scroll down to hear more about those!)

Excellent floor plan with large living spaces & big windows for great natural light. Original hardwood floors & coved ceilings + updates like double pane windows, electrical panel, gas furnace & hot water heater. Separate utility room off of the kitchen.

Mostly fenced yard with lots of green space including apple & pear trees. Enjoy afternoon shade on your front porch; sunny backyard is a great spot for garden beds and barbecues. Detached 1-car garage plus plenty of off-street parking for a boat or RV.

On the corner of S Yakima Ave and S 38th St is Vien Dong – an authentic Vietnamese, family owned restaurant that hits the spot with their delicious pho, curry and noodle dishes! If you’re craving a burger, shake and fries – you have two to choose from and they sit across the street from each other, Jubilee Burger and Burger Ranch. Both equally popular and delicious.

Refresh or cool down your palate with some of the best bubble tea around at BAMBU Coffee and Tea. They also have some unique desserts like passionfruit and lychee macarons, pandan waffles with Thai tea ice cream or guava cake.

2 miles 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.

Find tons of vintage items, art from local makers, food, flowers and more at the Lincoln District Sunday Market every Sunday from 10 AM - 3 PM.


“We’ve enjoyed this home because of the spacious yard with pear and fruit trees. This home offers a shaded front porch that’s cozy and easy to clean. The yard also has an apple tree, peonies, lavender, shasta daisies, rosemary, and a cedar hedge for privacy.”

“This location is convenient because it’s close to freeway and shopping. When dining out nearby we enjoy the pho from Vien Dong.”
