North Tacoma Rambler Retreat Offers Chef’s Kitchen, Park-Like Yard & Modern Styling

Featuring a generous 1,647-square-foot layout, this contractor-owned North Tacoma treasure has been meticulously updated over the years. Built in 1963, this home’s vintage character meets modern sensibilities, and new owners are poised to benefit from a long list of thoughtful upgrades. In addition to 3 bedrooms and 1.5 baths, this home also offers inviting living spaces designed with entertaining in mind, plus an incredible backyard oasis! Located at 1468 N Highland Tacoma, WA 98406 and just a couple minutes to Highway 16, shopping, restaurants, schools and more, this home is listed for $489,000. 

A charming path winds its way past a neat lawn and mature greenery to this residence’s front door, and as soon as you step inside, a welcoming scene envelops you in warmth. Sunlight pours in through large windows, shining the spotlight on beautiful hardwoods and a double-sided gas fireplace. Kick back and relax here as you catch up on your favorite TV shows, or visit with friends while a cozy fire dances in the background. 

Another living area awaits on the other side of the fireplace, as does the well-appointed chef-ready kitchen. Each detail has been expertly curated here, and you’ll discover stainless steel appliances, granite counters, a butcher block table, craft cabinetry, and a cohesive aesthetic from top to bottom. The blend of rich wood and sleek metal elements show off a striking contrast, and whether you’re whipping up dinner or gathered around the fabulous island counter with guests, the kitchen offers ease in all that comes your way! 

Even more flexible living space is within reach from here, and you’ll find versatility in the 3 bedrooms as well. Comfort and privacy is afforded to all, and if you have extra square footage, you can easily transform the space into a fitness center, a hobby room, office, a play area, etc. 

Those who enjoy spending time out in the fresh air are especially in for a treat with this property’s fabulous outdoor amenities. Impeccable landscaping boasts top-notch curb appeal, and the same careful maintenance awaits in the backyard as well. A large deck is ready for entertaining all summer long—grill up dinner for a crowd, lounge and sunbathe in peace and quiet, and end each day roasting s’mores gathered around the fire pit or unwinding in the hot tub. The rest of the yard is ready for your green thumb to work its magic, and a shed has all the room you need to keep your outdoor tools and toys out of the weather. Plus, a 2-car garage and a 3-car parking area off the paved alley offer even more flexibility.
