Situated in a wonderfully convenient South Tacoma location only minutes to I-5, tons of shopping and dining options, beautiful parks, and Joint Base Lewis-McChord, this 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, Craftsman-style rambler is ready for you to move right in! Several smart updates promise peace of mind, inviting living spaces are ready for making memories, and a huge detached 2+ car garage offers endless possibilities.

Classic charm delights as you arrive home—details like the covered front porch and the neat landscaping offer a warm welcome. Several updates ensure this home is ready to take on the future—there’s a new 40-year roof on the house, new carpeting, new PVF floors, new interior paint, and the electrical panel in the house has been updated. The kitchen also shows off updates like new floors, a new stove and dishwasher.

Whether it’s a hot summer day or a chilly evening in winter, this home-sweet-home is ready to keep you comfy. The living room features an Arrow wood stove, there’s electric baseboard heat, and mini-split AC/heat. Storm/vinyl windows are in the mix as well.

In both the living room and dining area, find plenty of potential for transforming each space into the haven you’ve always dreamed about. Bring these gathering getaways to life with your own personal style, and whether your aesthetic is traditional or trendy, you’ll find a home for it here! In the kitchen, the ideal layout and modern appliances promise convenience, while vintage elements are ready to be embraced or refreshed.

One of this home’s big benefits is its versatility. The home itself features 2 bedrooms, an unfinished basement, and a laundry space with a ton of storage. Then there’s the detached garage that opens up a whole other world of opportunities. The detached garage with alley access could be a 3-car garage, and this property also has exterior RV parking. There are 2 finished heated rooms in the garage, ready to become a workshop and office, and there’s even a separate electrical panel for this space. Plus, pull-down stairs lead the way to more storage.

This home’s outdoor spaces are wonderfully low maintenance; don’t worry about having to spend your weekends on yard work! A sprinkler system in the front and back yards keeps things green, and if you enjoy gardening, there’s still garden beds where you can plant your favorite shrubs and flowers. A huge covered patio with fun Edison lighting offers a fun atmosphere for weekend BBQs and laid-back hangouts no matter rain or shine. There’s also space for a hot tub!
