Take a moment to explore my 7 favorite things about this picture-perfect Victorian Home in South Tacoma: 

1. Smart updates. 

Enjoy the historic character that this 1896-built home offers without sacrificing modern convenience! Discover new electrical panels in the house and garage, a new high efficiency furnace, a water heater, a newer roof, newer paint, and a stylishly updated bath with a soaking tub. Move right in and begin your next chapter with peace of mind! (The kitchen is also filled with delightful updates, but more on that in a moment!) 

2. Inviting & light-filled living spaces. 

An impressive entryway greets all who enter through the front door, and from here, beautiful hardwood floors unfold into this home’s main living spaces. Relax in the living room alongside the gas fireplace, gather in the spacious dining room, and enjoy quality time with loved ones whether you’re simply having a laid-back evening or hosting a crowd. There’s room for it all! 

3. Impeccably curated kitchen.

The classic kitchen is an expertly designed masterpiece, and an on-trend contemporary aesthetic meets top-notch efficiency. Thoughtful updates include sleek, chef-ready modern appliances; custom tile that sparkles with style; eye-catching open shelving; and storage galore in gorgeous emerald green cabinetry. (Plus, the laundry area with ample storage for household essentials is within reach, making it easy to multitask; switch loads of laundry while dinner simmers on the stove!) 

4. Wonderful versatility. 

This home is truly ready to evolve as your wants and needs change in the years to come. A total of 3 bedrooms are in the mix; each expansive retreat offers flexibility in use. The huge bonus room with a loft also presents a unique opportunity; create an epic play room, a home office and hobby space, a home gym… and more! 

5. Extra-large 2-car garage. 

At the back of the property, the detached 2-car garage offers a rare amenity in this location; it’s not every day that a historic home like this one comes with such a large garage! The garage is just off the alley so you can easily use it for parking, but there’s also room for storage and a workspace. 

6. Outdoor getaway. 

This Tacoma residence really does check all of the boxes. Lovely outdoor spaces surround this home-sweet-home; find a charming pathway, multiple patios ideal for entertaining, and landscaping where you can put your green thumb to work.

7. Convenient South Tacoma location. 

At 5622 S Junett Street Tacoma, WA 98409, you’re absolutely surrounded by top Tacoma amenities; shopping, dining, transit, parks, schools and more are right at your fingertips. For starters, the local school is just down the street. 80-acre Wapato Hills Park is just a few blocks away, and features a playground and many trails that wind through the park’s forested expanse. Several restaurants, bars, and shops are along South Tacoma Way, which is just 0.6 miles from home, and a huge variety of conveniences can be found at and around the Tacoma Mall, which is less than 1 mile from home.
