Remodeled Craftsman Masterpiece with DADU in Tacoma’s North End 

Built in 1905 and brimming with remodeled beauty, this sanctuary in Tacoma’s North End is a true masterpiece. High-quality craftsmanship and attention to detail characterize every dialed-in space, and as you arrive home, it’s immediately evident that this home’s sellers worked hard to meticulously preserve the original character while making smart updates at every turn. In the main home you’ll find a splendid backdrop for years of making memories, and at the back of the property a permitted DADU (detached accessory dwelling unit) ensures limitless potential. Located at 3310 N 8th Street Tacoma, WA 98406 and merely blocks to University of Puget Sound and 6th Ave, this beloved abode is listed for $1,100,000. 

Perched up off the street, impeccably manicured retaining walls and landscaping (all created in 2021) lead the way to the picture-perfect Trex front porch. A sprinkler system (complete with a timer and controls) keeps things lush and lovely; experience pride in ownership each time you arrive home! A long list of thoughtfully curated updates promise that this residence is ready for its next chapter; move right in and let life unfold with ease from day one. Just a few major updates include the roof (2023), sewer line (2020), furnace (2019), electrical (2019), and plumbing (2019). And that’s only the beginning! 

From the moment you step in through the front door, this timeless haven envelops you in its welcoming warmth. The sellers loved everything from hosting lively holiday gatherings with friends, to intimate evenings enjoying quality time with family. Light-filled open-concept living beckons even on the grayest of Pacific Northwest days, and the living room is always ready to become a cozy retreat in an instant thanks to the custom gas fireplace.

Original hardwoods flow into the inviting dining space and remodeled kitchen, where stylish elegance meets top-notch efficiency. Sleek appliances (all updated in 2022, including a custom range hood in 2022) rest alongside white quartz and butcher block counters, showing off captivating contrast. Stunning tile work adds eye-catching texture to the space, and soft-close drawers add to the sumptuousness of it all. The kitchen is ready to inspire culinary creativity and is an entertainer’s dream! 

On the main level, an immaculate bathroom (remodeled in 2020) boasts vibrant tile work, and the main level also includes 3 well-appointed rooms. Extra square footage could be transformed into a home office, art studio, or playroom. The entire top floor is dedicated to the primary suite and stunning ensuite bath (remodeled in 2023), and the sprawling layout offers more than enough room for a sitting area and ample storage. 

Off the back of the main home, an expansive private concrete patio is ready to become an epic outdoor retreat for entertaining and relaxation. Set up an outdoor dining set for al fresco dinners all summer long, gather around the fire pit while the sun goes down, and find fun flexibility in the roll up glass door portion of the 2+ car garage that even includes a custom mural. 

In the 2020-built DADU, each detail has been just as carefully considered and chosen as everything in the main home. This permitted 827-square-foot dwelling includes 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, a full kitchen, and laundry amenities. Just a few of this DADU’s other notable features include the Mt. Rainier views, the wall heaters in the bathrooms, and the handy door code locks. Pristine and featuring a refreshed contemporary aesthetic, this sweet spot is an excellent source of income. Recent rental income is $2,300 – $2,500 per month, and $90 – $130 per night.
