Take a moment to learn more about the top 5 reasons we’re loving this home in Tacoma’s Old Town neighborhood:

1. Incredible location in the heart of Tacoma’s historic Old Town neighborhood.

At 2209 N 27th Street Tacoma, WA 98403, you’re merely blocks away from schools, dining, shopping, iconic parks, and more. North 30th Street is only 0.2 miles away, and here you can grab a bite to eat at The Spar, enjoy a cup of coffee at Anthem, take little ones to the playground at Old Town Park, and more. Ruston Way is only 0.3 miles from home, and at the waterfront you’ll find the Ruston Way Path, which is a scenic paved trail with some of the best views in town! Stock up on seafood at Northern Fish Co, enjoy a picnic at the waterfront Jack Hyde Park, or easily access any number of popular waterfront restaurants from here, including spots like the RAM, Duke’s Seafood, the Lobster Shop, and more. Point Ruston is just 5 minutes away, and here you’ll also find a long list of things to do and see, including shopping, dining, recreational activities, entertainment, etc.

Annie Wright Schools is just 0.4 miles from home, and Tacoma Lawn Tennis Club is not much further beyond that. This is also a great location for commuters—North 30th Street quickly turns into Schuster Parkway, which turns into Interstate-705 and connects to Interstate-5.

2. Light-filled living spaces with seamless flow and water views. 

Built in 1999 with original owners, you’ll find that this residence has been lovingly maintained over the years, and this is evidenced from the moment you step inside. One of this home’s top features includes its expansive living spaces, and the 2 large living rooms have especially been designed to take advantage of Commencement Bay views. In one living space, a gorgeous stone-accented fireplace adds instant ambiance, and in the other living area, you have direct outdoor access and even bigger views!

The layout effortlessly flows into the kitchen, where an open layout features ample storage, large counters, sleek appliances, and a timeless aesthetic. Bar-style counter seating and a spot for a bistro table offer great laid-back dining options, but a formal dining room is easily within reach as well!

3. Outdoor amenities offer views, entertainment options, and vacation-inspired relaxation! 

This property has no shortage of stylish outdoor spaces! New wrap-around Trex decking is ready for the years ahead, and this home’s incredible multi-level deck design is the perfect backdrop for all that spring and summer bring your way. Host a crowd at your next BBQ (there’s more than enough room!), gather around the firepit and roast marshmallows, and end a day well spent unwinding in the hot tub. The terraced, landscaped yard is brimming with possibilities as well—put your green thumb to work tending to the mature greenery that already awaits, and have fun adding your favorite plants into the mix!

4. Expansive primary suite offers a quiet retreat. 

The massive primary suite presents a myriad of opportunities. First and foremost, this quiet retreat is ready for peaceful rest and relaxation. A private view deck is the ideal spot to sip on your morning cup of coffee while you take in the view. The extra-large bedroom layout has more than enough room for a king-sized bed, a spacious sitting area, a desk, and more. The ensuite bath is also not to be missed—spa-inspired finishes let wellness routines feel even more rejuvenating, and just imagine sinking into a luxurious bubble bath at the end of a long day!

5. Dynamic versatility in 4 spacious bedrooms + flex space. 

This home’s generous layout ensures that it’s ready to evolve with your changing wants and needs in the years to come. A total of 4 bedrooms each include their own walk-in closet, and an office ensures you have a designated space for focus and productivity. You might also find that you have the space to create the home gym, hobby room, home theater, or play room that you’ve been dreaming about! You’ll also find a ton of storage options in this home, in addition to the garage.
