Beautifully Updated 1940s 3-Bedroom, 1.5-Bath Home in the Proctor District in Tacoma’s North End 

Lovingly maintained by the same owner over the past 30 years and brimming with smart updates, this 1,820-square-foot brick beauty is ready for its next chapter! Built in 1945, this home showcases attractive design elements from the era, yet offers modern amenities for top-notch functionality. This home features a new electrical panel installed on 1/25/22, a newer gas water heater from 2018, and a gas furnace from 2010. And in addition to 3 bedrooms and 1.5 baths, this home features lovely light-filled living spaces, versatility galore, and a 1-car attached garage. The fenced backyard retreat is also not to be missed—enjoy blueberries, strawberries, and lush greenery all summer long! Located at 4501 N 25th Street Tacoma, WA 98406 in Tacoma’s North End and just 5 blocks to the heart of the historic Proctor District, this home is listed for $575,000. 

Lush, mature landscaping, a classic brick exterior, and a cute roof design (the roof was new in 2009) all await when you approach this timeless brick beauty, and this North Tacoma haven is a delight to arrive home to time and time again. A charming front porch greets you (and is perfect for displaying decorative garden pots and baskets overflowing with your favorite flowers!), and just in through the front door, this home’s inviting layout effortlessly unfolds. From the entry, an eye-catching archway frames the living room, where sunlight pours in through big windows and a traditional fireplace anchors the haven. Whether you’re gathered around the fireplace or you’re enjoying a homemade meal in the dining area, the welcoming atmosphere of this character-rich home provides the ideal backdrop for all that life brings your way. 

The well-appointed kitchen is easily within reach from here, and this space was updated in 2010 with a gas range and double drawer dishwasher. The generous layout boasts ample storage in handsome contemporary cabinets and tons of room for meal prep on spacious counters, and plenty of natural light ensures it’s always a cheerful spot to spend time in. 

One of this home’s big perks is the fact that the main floor includes the primary bedroom and a full bath. Upstairs you’ll find 2 more bedrooms with a half bath, and cosmetic improvements to both of the upstairs bedrooms include fresh paint and new carpet. Even more flexibility awaits in the partially finished basement and in the 1-car garage. Each of these spaces offer room for projects, storage, or perhaps can be transformed into new spaces entirely! 

For those who love to spend time outside gardening, entertaining, and having room for play and recreation, this property’s backyard oasis is blossoming with possibilities. Picturesque greenery already awaits, and blueberry bushes and strawberries to enjoy this summer are yours to inherit as well. Have fun adding your own favorite plants, fruits, and veggies into the mix, and there’s plenty of room to add even more landscaping and raised garden beds, too! The patio can be brought to life in a new way as spring approaches; create the dream outdoor hangout you’ve always wanted complete with lounge chairs, strings of lights twinkling overhead, and more. The sky’s the limit!
