Updated 1920s Craftsman with Detached 2-Car Garage in North Slope District of Tacoma 

Bright and beautiful living awaits at every turn with this impeccably maintained and updated home in the highly desirable North Slope District of Tacoma. Nestled amid gorgeous historic homes and in a neighborhood lined with vintage street lights, this 1924-built gem fits right in! A 1,872-square-foot layout includes 3 bedrooms and 1.75 baths, and you’ll also find a detached 2-car garage out back alongside the picture-perfect backyard getaway. Located at 909 N Sheridan Avenue Tacoma, WA 98403 and merely blocks to iconic parks, schools, dining, shopping, hospitals and more, this Tacoma treasure is listed for $789,000. 

Framed by a manicured lawn and mature greenery, this classic Craftsman shines with vintage character from the moment you arrive home. A welcoming front porch is ready for you to decorate with your favorite plants and flowers (or pumpkins, come October!), and the front door opens up right into the light-filled living room. It’s immediately evident that not only has this home-sweet-home been lovingly cared for over the decades, but it boasts many smart updates as well. In the past 10 years, this home has received a new roof, kitchen, and windows. More recent updates include new interior paint and base trim, a newer heat pump, washer and dryer, window treatments, a Murphy bed, and the chimney was even refurbished in 2018. This home has also benefited from monthly service from Lind Pest Control. 

In the living room, gleaming floors, crisp trim, and a contemporary neutral color palette set the scene, making way for you to move right in and infuse each space with your own unique design sensibilities. A stately fireplace flanked by built-ins anchors this welcoming haven, and rejuvenating light pours in through several strategically placed windows. From here, the layout seamlessly unfolds into the adjacent dining area; those who love to host get-togethers are sure to appreciate having a designated place for entertaining! 

The expertly curated kitchen is just steps away from here, and each carefully selected detail shines with timeless style. Neat cabinets rest alongside a textured backsplash, while shimmering counters and sleek appliances promise even more efficient elegance. Hang out at laid-back bar-style seating, or enjoy morning coffee and casual weekend brunches in the kitchen’s sweet and sunny dining area. 

A total of 3 bedrooms and 1.75 baths await, and the main floor bedroom is especially versatile thanks to the fact that it has a Murphy bed. Use this bedroom as a home office, and transform it into a guest suite when the need arises. In the primary suite, a calm aesthetic meets a spacious layout, and vaulted ceilings let the getaway feel even more light and airy. The primary bath shows off a fresh atmosphere with spa-inspired finishes as well. Additionally, one of this home’s perks is how much storage it offers, which includes generous built-in bedroom storage options. The large detached 2-car garage out back not only has room for organization and even more storage, but you can create your dream workspace for hobbies and projects here as well! 

A large private wrap-around deck in the backyard expands your living space, and you can have fun hosting parties and BBQs all summer long, or simply relax out in the peace and quiet. Neat landscaping shows off plenty of room to put your green thumb to work, whether you envision growing fresh fruits and veggies, or you want to fill the backyard with vibrant blooms and blossoms.
