If you are looking for a spacious Mid-Century home in a fantastic location this is THE one! This 5 bedroom 3 bath home has been remodeled true to the era with attention to detail.

The kitchen has it all with a gas stove, lots of storage, and original banquette. The basement has a family room with two bedrooms and a gorgeous en-suite bath in between. Every square inch has been maximized! Fantastic level backyard, two-car tandem garage, new screen wall with trellis at the patio. Permitted work; new electrical, plumbing, mechanicals, windows, sprinkler sys, and kitty-corner to Kandle Park. Video tour captures all!


“Kandle Park has definitely been a great joy - and the kids love the wave pool. We are very close to the grocery store and quick access to McLendon’s/Tacoma Boys and Trader Joes, while not feeling like we are in a commercial area. Point Defiance is a quick drive up Pearl, as is Ice Cream Social at Point Ruston!”

“We love El Toro’s and Flying Fish for Sushi. The kids also love Habit Burger and Red Wagon for those ‘not-so-healthy’ treats. Brunch at Cactus is fantastic as well!”

“We purchased the house from the family of the man who built the house as part of closing out the estate. He (they) took tremendous care and pride in this home, and it sold us originally. We’ve kept in touch with the family and given tours of the remodeling work that we have done. In turn, they’ve shared pictures of the house construction and their memories here growing up. Of note is the apple tree in the backyard - it produces some of the most beautiful and tasty apples that I have known.”
