Situated in a fantastic North Tacoma location, offering a generous 2,726-square-foot layout, and absolutely brimming with updates, this quintessential Craftsman checks all the boxes! From the beautifully curated interior to the fully fenced backyard, this home-sweet-home offers plenty of space to spread out and call your own. 4 bedrooms and 2 baths rest alongside an immaculate kitchen, light-filled living spaces, and even a fully finished basement. Located at 1128 N Fife Street Tacoma, WA 98406, this 1920s treasure is listed for $749,000.
Within the last 10 years, this home has seen many updates. The roof, furnace, sewer line, water heater, exterior paint, and garage are all newer. Practical upgrades are aplenty, and more cosmetic updates are in the mix as well. You’ll also find brand new carpet, an updated kitchen with new appliances, and an updated main bath complete with a new vanity, tile backsplash, paint, and hardware. Plus, a new fence in the backyard is being installed this July.
This home’s exterior shows off the type of dialed-in curb appeal that inspires passersby to do a double take! Classic Craftsman elements and an attractive color palette are made even more lovely with the established landscaping, and the inviting porch is ready to greet visitors. From the entryway, the layout unfolds into the living room, a bright and cheerful haven ready for gathering. The fireplace is flanked by beautiful built-ins, while gorgeous hardwoods with intricate detailing and crisp trimwork show off this home’s vintage character.
There’s also plenty of room to gather in the adjacent dining room, which is complete with pristine wainscoting that instantly elevates the overall aesthetic. Get-togethers large and small are at home here, and there’s more than enough space to expand your dining set and host a crowd!
Of course, this home has a highly functional layout, and this means that the kitchen is right at your fingertips from the dining room. The updated kitchen (boasting new appliances!) is absolutely dreamy and features style straight from the glossy pages of a home design magazine! Fresh white contrasts with bold, vibrant blue, and tasteful gold elements punctuate this on-trend scene. One of the very best things about the kitchen (and adjacent eat-in area) is all of the storage you’ll find—you really can never have enough storage for kitchen essentials, and this space delivers!
This home includes a total of 2 baths and 4 bedrooms; 2 bedrooms are on the main level, and 2 are upstairs. Each bedroom provides a large layout and brand new plush carpets. The main bath is especially not to be missed—contemporary additions work well with this home’s overall aesthetic. Even more versatile space awaits in the finished basement.
This large lot includes a fully fenced backyard (with a new fence being installed in July!). Dynamic space is ready for making memories—host and relax on the deck, keep an eye on little ones having fun with the amazing playset or riding scooters on the paved area, and enjoy having room for storing gardening tools and toys in the detached garage. Additionally, the alley off the back is paved.
