5 Must-See Highlights of this Beautifully Appointed 6-Bedroom, 2.75-Bath Home in the Heart of Tacoma 

Classic beauty, top-notch convenience, and a prime location are all part of this impeccably maintained Tacoma home! This timeless treasure is a bit deceiving from the exterior—this home may appear to be on the smaller side, but as soon as you step inside, the palatial 2,248-square-foot layout envelops you in warmth and possibility! In addition to living spaces that shine with style, this home also includes 6 bedrooms and 2.75 baths. Located at 3116 S 18th St Tacoma, WA 98405, this move-in ready charmer is listed for $409,950. 

“We bought this house because of the location [and] the flexibility of the space,” shared this home’s sellers. They also enjoyed having bedrooms and baths on both floors, and “we just LOVED the big open kitchen, [and the] dining room that opened up to the yard. It makes for great indoor/outdoor living!”

There’s certainly a lot to love about this residence—read on for 5 must-see highlights! 

1. Fantastic central Tacoma location. 

At 3116 S 18th St Tacoma, WA 98405, you’re truly in a prime location that’s close to everything, from shopping and services, dining and entertainment, and even outdoor activities. “We have loved the location so much,” shared the sellers. “No matter where our day takes us, we find it is very easy to swing by the house. We are constantly pleased to find out how close everything is and how easily accessible the house is to everything you’d want. Restaurants, coffee, parks, errands (Target!), Cheney Stadium, freeways… We can even walk to most of those places.” 

South 19th Street is only a couple blocks away, and Union Ave is only 0.3 miles from home; having easy access to these main thoroughfares ensures that running errands and getting around town is a breeze! “Additionally, even though it has ‘south’ in the address, it is very walkable to the coveted North End,” add the sellers. “I walk with the stroller to Proctor, University of Puget Sound, and 6th Avenue weekly—oh, and Target is even closer! It is truly a wonderful little spot in the heart of all the action.”

Browse local farmers markets, catch a game at Cheney Stadium (it’s just a 5-minute drive away), hike around Point Defiance, or hit up the nightlife in Downtown Tacoma or 6th Ave. (You can even hop on a bus just a couple blocks from home and take it straight into Downtown so you don’t have to worry about parking!) You’re also only a 4-minute drive away to both Interstate-5 and Highway 16. 

2. Huge layout with room for everyone. 

One of the seller’s favorite things about home has been the flexibility that the expansive 2,248-square-foot layout has offered: “We can host a set of grandparents AND another friend or family member and no one needs to share a bathroom, sleep on the floor, or lack privacy in any way. Our home feels like an oasis for guests, and that makes me so happy. …We were able to have family stay with us for extended periods of time which is great with little kids, and one year we hosted a high school exchange student for the school year, all without any inconvenience because of the layout of the home. A multi-generational family would make sense as well,” they added. 

3. Welcoming neighbors in a wonderful community. 

Not only is the neighborhood in an incredibly convenience part of Tacoma, but the sellers have also deeply appreciated the community atmosphere—the sellers have loved the “diversity [of the neighborhood, which includes people of] all ages, and how wonderful and welcoming neighbors are to one another. We love our block parties!” 

4. Stylish details throughout ensure you’ll love spending time at home!

Built 1945, this home is replete with vintage character, yet its many smart upgrades are apparent and promise efficiency in coming years. A fresh, crisp white aesthetic makes up much of the living spaces, and rejuvenating sunlight fills the living room, kitchen, and dining area. The kitchen and adjacent dining space were certainly designed with entertaining in mind, and you have more than enough space to host a crowd! 

5. Large backyard with room for play, gardening, entertaining, and relaxation. 

The sellers added a patio, a kids treehouse, and planted grass, and now this backyard retreat is ready for you to add your own personal touch into the mix! The sellers have loved “the way the backyard feels like such an oasis in the middle of the city,” and they’ve also enjoyed how “secure, private and spacious” their outdoor space has been. Let pets and little ones play while you sunbathe on the patio, or host summertime barbecues where the whole neighborhood is invited!
