What we’ll miss the most about liv­ing in this house is the abil­i­ty to do every­thing, right at home. Like to gar­den? The house is sur­round­ed by raised beds and a large veg­etable gar­den. Want to do a project? There’s plen­ty of room in the sec­ond garage – it dou­bles as a work­shop. Just want to stay indoors? There’s plen­ty of light and plen­ty of space, includ­ing a huge play­room upstairs if you want to be sep­a­rate from the activ­i­ties going on downstairs.”

The loca­tion is close to every­thing. We walk the dog up Verde Street, which is qui­et with a good side­walk. We also walk to Snake Lake Nature Trail, which is about a 10 min walk. Of course we’ve devel­oped ter­ri­ble shop­ping habits. Fred Mey­er is lit­er­al­ly a 5 minute walk, so we’re always run­ning out to get that one last thing we for­got to buy. Then, of course, there’s the fire­works at Cheney Sta­di­um. We can watch from upstairs or take a 10 minute walk to get a bet­ter view. We’re so cen­tral­ly locat­ed that we can get to the free­ways, to the Taco­ma Mall, to 26th and Proc­tor, to Point Defi­ance all with­in 5 – 10 min.”

When hav­ing lunch or din­ner near­by we like to vis­it — Lunch: Frisko Freeze, order the usu­al. Din­ner: water­front, North End, lots of choices.”

Any­thing else the next own­er should know about the neigh­bor­hood? The veg­etable gar­den has been in place for the life of the home and has been a great source of enjoy­ment for the fam­i­ly. There is a per­sim­mon tree that was plant­ed when I was born. The neigh­bor­hood is a friend­ly mix of young fam­i­lies and retirees.”

If you’re look­ing for anoth­er option for fresh pro­duce & meats is Taco­ma Boys, which is just a few min­utes away. Pick up the some of the best meats and pro­duce for the hol­i­days and maybe some­thing from their plen­ti­ful beer and wine selec­tion to go with!

If you’re look­ing for some­thing with a laid back envi­ron­ment then head to the The Red Hot — cre­ative hot dogs and ample craft beers. Hap­py Hour is Mon-Fri from 3 – 7PM — get $1 off every IPA on tap, filthy nachos and frito pies. Mon­day is Vinyl Night where you can flip through their records crates for some sweet jams. If you’re palette isn’t picky you don’t want to skip Thursday’s Test Kitchen — the cook whips up one-off food cre­ations (fol­low them on their social chan­nels to see what the days cre­ation is).
