Less than a mile from Pt. Ruston, this darling 3-bedroom rambler is the quintessential first home. Step onto the oak hardwood floors and open the windows to feel the Puget Sound breeze. Rooms are plenty, convert one into a home office if you wish. The kitchen is renovated and spacious with a comfortable eat-in space. Bonus room opens onto a deck that’s perfect for lounging on those long summer nights. In the Spring the lilacs fill the air and a family of deer visits regularly. Detached garage provides extra storage and off-street parking while still leaving lots of space to garden and play.


“We will miss the breeze off the sound coming in the front windows. We will miss the many birds and their songs. We will miss the neighborhood walks, especially down the hill to Point Ruston to see a movie, have some ice cream or a crepe, and walk along the water. We will certainly miss the neighborhood deer family. We have loved being able to walk to the Food Co-Op or the Delightful Market.”

“There are so many great places to eat nearby! We love walking down the hill for dinner at Wild Fin - beautiful view, yummy local food... the local greens salad is amazing, as is the trout. Ice Cream Social provides the perfect dessert... or just a treat whenever. A new favorite is “Only Oatmeal” at the Point Ruston Farmers Market!”

“The lilacs in the backyard smell delightful when they bloom in the Spring.”


The ever developing Point Ruston has shopping & dining & entertainment! WildFin American Grill, Jewel Box Cafe, Farrelli’s Pizza, Stack 571, Ice Cream Social and live music in the summer! Enjoy the popular trail with grandiose views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains with even better views at the top of the Dune Peninsula! 11 acres of landscaped park property on the breakwater peninsula surrounding the Tacoma Yacht Club and connecting to the Point Defiance Park via the Wilson Way Bridge.
