Our first buyers won in a multiple offer situation and were a day away from closing. Sometimes life happens ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ this sweet pad is now available again!

Welcome to the City Steps condo community! This clean townhouse neighborhood built with environmental sensitivity sets you in the heart of Tacoma’s revitalization.  Crafted in a modern style with tall ceilings and double-insulated walls on the slope above Downtown, this home offers comfort and quiet in a lively urban setting. Whether you're walking, cycling, driving, or taking the bus, this location is the sweet spot. Pull your car out of the tandem garage and reach Wright Park, the Zodiac Supper Club, Alma Mater, St. Joseph Medical Center, or Tacoma General Hospital all within 5 minutes. Or, head out the door on foot to reach the University YMCA, 7 Seas Brewing, UW Tacoma, or The Swiss Pub, within 10 minutes. We could go on and on about what's nearby in Hilltop, Stadium, and Downtown (and we will!) but let's take a look at this townhouse first! 

In traditional townhouse design, this home is built on 3 levels: an entry and parking level, living and dining level with a patio and half bath, and at the top a quiet, private floor where you'll find vaulted ceilings, a spacious landing (lit by a skylight!) perfect for an office or additional sitting room, a bedroom and separate full bath, laundry, as well as a lovely suite featuring a larger bedroom and second full bath. 

There's a lot more to say about this home, and much more to see. Continue on for the video tour, photos, neighborhood highlights, and more details about this townhouse at City Steps.

Enter at ground level beside your tandem garage (or step in through the door from the garage itself), set your shoes in the tiled foyer, hang your jacket in the closet, and head up the carpeted staircase. You'll find a half bath with a pedestal sink conveniently located at the top of the stairs. This is perfect for anyone dropping by for a visit.
