Set in the North Slope Historic Distict this remodeled home with classic farmhouse style is a beauty. With 3 full bathrooms, 3 bedrooms, and an office, it’s a home for family, a home for friends, a place of welcome, with room to feel comfortable. Hickory hardwood floors, archways, exposed brick, and a butler’s pantry bring the charm of the old days, while updated plumbing and wiring set your mind at ease. Even with the updates, you can almost feel the stories lived and told over the last century in this historic residence, officially known as the Joseph M. Hargis Home. The home was fully remodeled in 2016, so if you’re looking for a project, you might need to find another house. Or, focus on the basement and dream about all the possibilities there with the carriage door leading to the fenced back yard. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. Let’s stay inside for a minute where the kitchen combines vintage and modern elements: white tile, farmhouse sink, gas range, industrial pipe shelving, and stone countertops. Upstairs the hardwoods continue where a landing connects the en suite bedroom, the 2 additional bedrooms, and the 3rd full bath. We think you’ll like it up there.

Park your car in the garage or paved driveway and walk, bike, roll, or mosey on down to the waterfront. You could also stroll over to Stadium for groceries, drinks, a loop around Wright Park, or dinner out.

Continue on for the video tour, photos, neighborhood highlights (including travel time/distance to a list of Tacoma favorites), and many more details about this home.

Hickory hardwoods are beautifully colorful and smooth white ceilings keep the rooms bright.

Welcome. Stop a moment to slip off your shoes and set down your bags in the tiled entry, then head up the hardwood staircase to the bedrooms, or take a right through the cased opening into the living room.

Living Room

The living room features a fireplace with a brick hearth and solid mantle, and an attractive archway into the dining room.

This living room is a room for enjoyment. Enjoy company and conversation, a quiet book, a nap. Bring your piano and guitars and enjoy some music, bring your rugs and your pet’s bed and enjoy comfort. Hang your paintings and photographs and enjoy memories. The fireplace with its brick hearth and wood mantle are an invitation to sit and stay awhile, a warm reminder of the old days. So don’t rush, stay put.

Living room windows overlook North K St, bringing light in from the front and corner.

When you’re ready, step under the graceful archway from the living room into the dining room. This room is sort of the heart of the main floor, it's the place where all the rooms meet. You can move through to the kitchen, or on into the office, and the full bath. But it’s not just a room to move through, it’s a pretty room in its own right with rustic planking on one wall, and exposed brick from the chimney back on the other. These textured surfaces work nicely with the hickory hardwoods, simple trim, and smooth ceilings.

There’s space here for festive celebratory dinners, but it’s not too formal for pancake breakfast, or grilled cheese. The important thing is, you can sit down here and share food with family and friends.

There's plenty of texture and interest in this dining room with the exposed brick, graceful archway, and rustic planking on the wall. Set up candles and a mini bar display on the the chimney back.

Kitchen & Butler’s Pantry

We love this kitchen: octagonal tile flooring, subway tile backsplash, stone counters, gas range, farmhouse sink, and industrial pipe shelving.

This kitchen combines vintage and modern elements nicely. The octagonal tile floor and white tile backsplash are classic and pretty, while industrial pipe shelves add a more urban element, and the stone counters gleam. Gleaming sounds really fancy, but it’s also easy to clean these surfaces, especially considering the undermount sink - no raised edge or gummy caulk. And it’s not just any old sink, it’s a beautiful deep, farmhouse sink.

Cook up a storm on the gas range. There’s a hood vent above and windows open too for even more ventilation. And don’t forget the butler’s pantry! It extends the kitchen storage space, is quaint, and old-timey, and practical too. Unfortunately, there’s no butler included (this is the North Slope, not Downton Abbey, after all).

The farmhouse sink is deep and classic. Enjoy good window light, and step right out onto the deck through the back door.

You'll notice an archway into the butler's pantry just off the kitchen for additional storage - a practical and charming feature from the old days. Just beyond the pantry, find the stairs to the basement.

All 3 bedrooms are upstairs, set apart as a place of rest. The largest bedroom features an en suite full bath. This is such a nice feature for privacy. The other upstairs bedrooms share a full bath in the hall, so there are plenty of places for kids, guests, or housemates.

The en suite bedroom overlooks N K St. The closet is fairly low, but is long and set-up nicely with shelves and closet rod, as well as its own window.

Hickory hardwoods continue throughout the second floor bedrooms and landing.

This is the largest of the bedrooms with its private full bath. The doorway on the left leads out to the landing area.

Basement with Laundry

The basement is spacious and clean. This is 924 square feet of unfinished space with a carriage door that opens to the fenced back yard. So think about how you’ll use it! There's opportunity for organized storage, workshop space, or even for finishing for additional living space down here.

Outside

From the kitchen step out onto deck with stairs down to the fenced back yard. Have some fresh air with your coffee in the morning, squeeze a lemon into your iced tea and take an afternoon break in the sunshine, pour a glass of wine and sit out on a warm evening (we have lots of ideas, and I’m sure you do too).

The fully fenced back yard is spacious with lawn, access to the one car garage, room to garden, play fetch with pups, bbq, and run around. This is a low-maintenance yard, but one with lots of possibility. Add raised beds, plant a flowering border, grow an herb garden, maybe build a patio for even more outdoor dining space, do chalk art in the paved drive. It’s good to have options!

A gate opens from the alley to the paved drive leading up to the basement carriage door. Don’t forget there’s a front lawn too, and a planting strip between the sidewalk and the street. So there are even more places to plant and grow.

If you've made it this far, you might be in love with this house, or maybe you have a soft spot for Tacoma, it could be you just like reading and looking at photos, or you can’t sleep. In any case here you are, so we’ll tell you a little about the neighborhood. This Tudor cottage or farmhouse style home, originally built in 1903 or 1904 (depending on the source), is set in Tacoma's Historic North Slope District; one of the largest historic districts in the state! Those who know the neighborhood love it for its architectural variety, its proximity to the restaurants and amenities of the Stadium District and the Proctor District, and its special perch above Old Town and the waterfront. This is a neighborhood worth exploring, a place to wander on summer evenings. Think of garden paths, wide front porches, deep eaves, pleasant doorways, and glimpses into private backyards. You can learn more about this neighborhood on the Tacoma North Slope Historic District Facebook Group page and read about this and Tacoma’s other Historic Districts on the City of Tacoma’s site. We’re not trying to give you homework, but there’s so much to learn!

When you’re done immersing yourself in the history of the neighborhood, get some fresh air with a walk down the hill to the beach. If you really need to stretch your legs you can continue north along Ruston Way and all the way to Owen Beach at Point Defiance Park! Or, once you make it down the hill to Old Town, just sit a while with a cup of coffee at the Spar Cafe, Starbucks, or Montamara Kitchen.

Walk everywhere, drive easily when you're in a hurry, take the bike out; you won't go far to find a cocktail or brunch. Take a look at walking and driving times to some Tacoma favorites within easy reach.
