Located at 3731 N 28th Street Tacoma, WA 98407 just blocks to grocery stores, the farmers market, dining, shopping, services, and schools, this Proctor District foursquare is listed for $875,000. 

A serene, idyllic street leads the way to this remarkable residence with a new roof (2022), and a stunning canopy of maple trees welcomes you home. Storybook charm delights; cute pathways, lovely landscaping, and an inviting covered porch set the scene. Imagine grabbing a cup of coffee from Olympia Coffee Roasting just blocks away, and sipping it out on the front porch while you wave to neighbors passing by. The lifestyle you’ve been envisioning awaits! 

Just in through the front door, vintage elements show off eye-catching style. Neat trim work, a gorgeous staircase, and natural light greet guests, and original hardwoods flow right into the living room and formal dining room. A classic brick-accented wood-burning fireplace anchors this haven; cozy up on the couch with a good book on a chilly winter evening, or enjoy the ambiance of the fireplace while catching up with friends. Fresh interior paint lets each space feel as good as new while offering you a canvas to infuse with your personal aesthetic. 

The layout seamlessly flows into the formal dining room, and here you can enjoy effortless indoor-outdoor flow. French doors open up onto the deck in the private backyard, making it easy to take meals outside whenever the mood strikes. The chef’s kitchen is designed to impress; discover stainless steel appliances, a double oven and warmer, abundant high-end custom cabinets, granite countertops, a built-in desk, open shelving, and an extra-long island with a 5 gas burner stove. Each and every detail has been carefully considered! Additionally, there’s even a laid-back dining spot along a wall of windows, perfect for casual meals any day of the week. 

Each bedroom offers a light-filled retreat for rest and relaxation, and each of this home’s baths offers elegant simplicity and a refreshing atmosphere. And on the third floor, incredible versatility awaits—sunlight pours in through large windows, and this expansive space is ready to become another living area with an entertainment center, a play room, a home office, a hobby space, or even a guest suite. (Make sure not to miss the built-in storage, and the surprise built-in shelf that serves as a door to great storage space!) In the detached oversized garage, even more room for projects and storage can be enjoyed, and an attached rec room provides endless possibilities. 

In the fully fenced backyard, a private getaway provides opportunity for outdoor entertaining, peaceful gardening, and quiet relaxation. From the large partially covered deck to the spacious patio, there’s plenty of room to create the outdoor oasis you’ve always wanted!
