Top 3 Highlights of this Impeccably Updated 2-Bedroom, 1-Bath Home in Prime Downtown Tacoma Location

Situated in a wonderfully convenient location in the heart of Downtown Tacoma, this 2-bedroom, 1-bath home presents a fantastic opportunity! Built in 1892, this home has been updated from top to bottom and is ready for a new chapter. This move-in ready residence also offers the best of both worlds—not only are you surrounded by downtown amenities, but you even have a fenced yard all to yourself. Located at 1712 S L St Tacoma, WA 98405, this 840-square-foot gem is listed for $319,000. 

Here are this Tacoma property’s top 3 highlights you won’t want to miss: 

1. Excellent location 

First and foremost, this home’s central location makes it easy to access some of Tacoma’s very best amenities. Here you’re just down the street from People’s Community Center, a dynamic hub of activities, community happenings, and top-notch amenities (including a pool!) You’re also just down the street from St. Joseph Medical Center and other medical services, and you’re no more than half a mile to local eateries, parks, schools, grocery stores, etc. 

When you’d like to enjoy Downtown Tacoma attractions, you’re only 0.8 miles to Pacific Avenue. Here you’ll find excellent dining, destination shopping, museums, the University of Washington Tacoma campus, theaters and entertainment options, and more. Everything is within an arm’s reach and a short bus ride away! 

Those who commute are also sure to especially appreciate this location—the Tacoma Dome train station is only 7 minutes away, and here you can hop on the Sounder Train and take it straight into Downtown Seattle.  You’re also only a 4-minute drive to connect to Highway 16 and Interstate-5. Plus, Tacoma’s future light rail station has a stop at St. Joseph coming in 2022. Soon you’ll be able to hop on the light rail and get around the area with even more ease. 

2. Beautifully updated home-sweet-home. 

This 1892-built home offers you the opportunity to own a piece of Tacoma’s history, yet it is completely ready for the modern homeowner and is brimming with updates. In addition to new paint (both inside and out) and new engineered hardwood flooring, a new roof will also be completed this month (October 2020). 

The spacious, light-filled layout has been immaculately updated and maintained, and you can move right in and begin to infuse each space with your own unique decor. The spacious living room seamlessly flows into the dining area and the beautifully appointed kitchen, and here you’ll find a smart layout replete with generous cabinetry, large counters, sleek appliances, and eye-catching elements like tile details and captivating light fixtures. 

3. Fenced backyard brimming with potential. 

Imagine living so close to city conveniences, yet having an outdoor retreat that’s yours to curate—you truly get the best of both worlds here! There’s a concrete pad that you could simply use as a parking space (you have alley access from here), or you can transform it into a patio oasis to entertain on. There’s also garden space to cultivate—design landscaping and a manicured lawn, or build raised garden beds to grow your own fresh fruits and veggies. This timeless Tacoma getaway awaits your unique vision!
