North Tacoma views meet California vibes in this updated, open-concept home overlooking Commencement Bay and the resident bald eagles (Click here to see the new eaglet!) Huge great room is hard to find in a home this age, and affords unique options for year-round entertaining. Beautifully landscaped yard is full of color in the Spring & Summer. Parties can spill out onto the private slate patio in front or the deck with a water view out back. During the Winter months the water views expand as the leaves fall from the deciduous trees at nearby Puget Park.

“Even on the darkest days of the year the house still has a lot of light...there’s the warm color of the wood floors, or sitting in the sun on either the back deck or front garden patio, and the colorful blooms of the many rhododendrons and azaleas in the yard.” — Current owner

Although the peaceful, green setting makes you feel like you’re on vacation, this home is close to everything you need! It’s less than a mile to the Proctor business district and such favorites as the Metropolitan Market, Blue Mouse Theater, Olympia Coffee, Brewer’s Row, and of course the Saturday Farmer’s Market. Another local favorite in Proctor isGardensphere - this is a great spot to shop for starts for your raised beds!

Down the hill is Old Town, where you’ll find Anthem Coffee, the famous Spar Tavern (Tacoma’s oldest!) and delicious Montamara Kitchen. In the Summertime, there are concerts every Wednesday evening at Old Town Park (which also is home to the Job Carr cabin, a replica of the home built by the first non-native settler in this area). Wander a few more blocks and you’ll pass Old Town Bicycleand arrive at the Ruston Way waterfront. If you head South from Old Town you’ll be in Downtown Tacoma before you know it or continue on Schuster Parkway for easy freeway access. Check out this tour of Old Town that was recently on Evening Magazine!

Whether you’re seeking an active urban lifestyle or a peaceful retreat for reading and relaxing — this home has what you need.
