Mid-Century Home on half an acre, in the middle of Tacoma!?

Every now and again I get a buyer who HAS to live in the city, but would really rather live in the country. The reasons can be complex. Sometimes it is a compromise with a spouse, commute times, or schools- but whatever the reason they have a country dream and the City of Tacoma city limits as their borders. Well, if you are one of those people you need to look at this house right now:

  • Price: $300,000
  • 3 Bedrooms 1.5 bathrooms
  • 3 car garage
  • Hardwood floors, lots of light
  • Midcentury style
  • Large .52 acre lot with gate and tons of parking
  • Vegetable garden, large patio, mature trees, surrounded by a park
  • Enjoy China Lake Park at your doorstep!

Full disclosure, I know the owner of this house. The first time I went to her house I was picking up something I’d forgotten at an event. When she told me where she lived I couldn’t comprehend it, “There’s a HOUSE there?” I’d driven by so many times and assumed it was just a part of 12 acre China Lake Park. As I drove up her long driveway I marveled at how secluded the house is while being only a 2 minute drive to Highway 16 and a 10 minute drive (in traffic) to Downtown Tacoma. When she told me she was putting it on the market I begged her to let me write about it. This place is special.


Thanks to the seller’s agent Bonnie Daybell at Windermere for allowing me to write about this house!
