Welcome to this warm and inviting home. Recent renovations include refinished fir floors, smooth-coated ceilings, fully repainted interior and exterior, knotty pine ceiling in the kitchen, and gas extended to the kitchen and laundry. This home is cozy and colorful throughout. The front room features a cozy sitting area and open staircase. Tucked upstairs are 3 nice bedrooms and a full bath. Downstairs, the eat-in kitchen is spacious and bright with a closet, pantry, and laundry/half bath right off the hall. The kitchen's backdoor opens onto the large deck with trees and flowerbeds just steps away. 

This newly fenced triple lot is full of trees such as a star magnolia, mimosa with fuzzy pink blossoms all summer, apple, and Japanese maple. Shrubs include a snowball bush, lilac, mock orange, a variety of rhododendrons, and azaleas. Perennials cover the landscaped front slope with bluebells thick in the early spring. Both a garden shed and garage offer room for storage.

The location offers an easy commute with quick access to I-5, and Hwy 16, and just a 7 min drive to downtown. Experience the revitalization of the Lincoln District just a few blocks away with restaurants, Lincoln Hardware, beautiful Lincoln High, a local post office, and even a used book shop. This house is also just a few minutes from the Tacoma Mall and wonderful Wapato Park where you'll find a paved loop around the lake, an off-leash dog park, playground, birdwatching, and picnic areas.
