Move-in Ready Home with Huge 3-Car Detached Garage in South Tacoma 

Picture-perfect and wonderfully move-in ready, this South Tacoma gem is ideal for first-time home buyers or an investor looking to add to their portfolio! In addition to 2 bedrooms and 1 bath, this home’s 799-square-foot layout includes a spacious living area, a well-appointed kitchen, and a laundry room. One of the top perks of this property is that it even offers a yard with plenty of space for gardening, and a huge 3-car detached garage! Located at 6014 S Montgomery Street Tacoma, WA 98409 and less than 5 minutes to South Tacoma Station, I-5, schools, parks, dining, shopping and more, this South Tacoma home is listed for $375,000. 

This home was originally built in 1905, but in 2007 it was completely remodeled down to the studs. All work was permitted, and now you’ll find newer plumbing, electrical, and insulation. New paint both inside and out gives this home that “brand new” feel, too. Everything has been taken care of, so you can move right in and get to work making this home your own! 

A charming pathway leads to the front door, which opens up right into the light-filled living room. Sunlight cascades in through strategically placed windows to add to the cheerful atmosphere. Gorgeous original wood floors are contrasted with crisp white trim, adding character and yet perfectly polished. 

The kitchen boasts a highly functional floor plan that makes the most of the space; there’s room for more than one cook in the kitchen here. Sleek appliances, counter space (with convenient electrical outlets for countertop appliances!), ample storage in generous cabinetry, and even a breakfast bar ideal for serving refreshments are all easily within reach here. And, the laundry room is right around the corner, so you can multitask with ease; switch batches of laundry while dinner simmers on the stove. 

This home also includes a bright full bath and 2 comfortable bedrooms. Each bedroom shows off the same aesthetic found in the living room for a cohesive feel, and offers flexibility in use. 

Even more flexible space awaits with this property’s huge 3-car detached garage. A detached garage of this size is a total rarity in this area, and it’s absolutely brimming with possibilities. If you’re a mechanic or woodworker, you’ve finally got the space for projects! You could also rent out one or all of the garage bays; the past owner rented out the bays as storage units for supplemental income. 

And finally: If you enjoy spending time outside, you’ll find the lovely yard ready for lawn games, gardening, outdoor hangouts (you could build a deck or patio in the future!), and sunbathing. Plus, there’s the possibility for RV/extra parking.
