Historic 2-Bedroom Home with Detached Garage & Carport Close to Transit in Tacoma

Built in 1912, this charming 2-bedroom, 1-bath home offers the opportunity to own a piece of Tacoma history! This 1,060-square-foot home is sold as-is, with the seller unable to do any repairs. The $168,000 list price is reflective of this, and presents you with the chance to invest in a wonderfully convenient part of town. Located at 3625 A St Tacoma, WA 98418, you’re just a block away from bus lines, Highway 7, and just minutes to the Tacoma Dome Station (hop on the Sounder Train to Seattle!) and Interstate-5.

Showing off a partial view of Mt. Rainier, this incredible relic of a home also features the oldest cherry tree on the block, and the only Pink Dogwood in the neighborhood. Charm is aplenty with this timeless treasure, and a few upgrades will bring this solid home into the future.

When you arrive home, this residence’s cute exterior is ready for your personal touch! Add a fresh coat of paint and some colorful landscaping in the front, and this beauty is sure to catch the eye of anyone passing by. Just inside, an inviting atmosphere awaits, and the large living room is a versatile retreat. The spacious kitchen and dining nook are just around the corner, and this dynamic area of the home boasts tons of storage!

Journey upstairs to find this home’s 2 bedrooms, each one offering a spacious layout and comfortable space to retire to at the end of each day. Need some extra storage space? This property includes a carriage house/garage that needs some TLC, plus a carport and wired shed/workspace.

In the large fenced backyard, you’ll also find plenty of space to transform. Have you been dreaming of having a patio for entertaining, raised garden beds for cultivating fresh veggies in, or a play area for little ones? There’s room for it all and more!
