Classic Charm Awaits! 3-Bedroom, 1.5-Bath Home w/Lovely Backyard in Tacoma’s Fern Hill Neighborhood 

This turn-key vintage gem really does have it all: Not only is this residence well-maintained, but this 3-bedroom, 1.5-bath home-sweet-home comes with a fully fenced backyard getaway and is in a prime South End location less than 5 minutes to schools, shopping, parks, freeways, and more! And while this 1,112-square-foot home is perfectly move-in ready, you’ll find plenty of potential to customize elements and make your own stylistic updates. Located at 8838 Tacoma Ave S Tacoma, WA 98444, this home in Tacoma’s Fern Hill neighborhood is listed for $395,000. 

From the moment you step inside, the inviting atmosphere of the main living area immediately feels like “home”! Gleaming hardwoods flow from the living room into the dining space, and as soon as you move in you can start to arrange furniture and add your favorite decor into the mix without having to worry about a thing. The open layout makes it easy to entertain and spend quality time with loved ones, and the kitchen and dining area are ready to help you tackle all that comes your way. 

In addition to the dining area, you’ll find a cute bar-style seating option that looks into the kitchen. Featuring a smart design that’s brimming with storage, counter space, and handy appliances all within reach, the kitchen promises efficiency alongside eye-catching details. Windowed cabinet doors let you display your favorite dishware, and the backsplash design adds a sweet touch. From here, the layout flows into the spacious mudroom and laundry area, where you’ll find storage space and an adjacent half bath. 

One of this home’s top highlights is its wonderfully flexible layout. All 3 bedrooms offer built-in closet space, cozy carpets, and a warm color palette, and there’s even an additional (unheated) room in the garage for added flexibility. You might decide to transform this room into a fitness center, a craft or hobby room, or a home office! Additionally, this home’s full bath is another not-to-miss space, and here you’ll find an updated vanity and a refreshing aesthetic of cool blues and pristine whites. 

The backyard is blossoming with opportunity, and it’s conveniently fenced so you can let pets and little ones roam with peace of mind. A shed and RV parking promise convenience, and the rest of the space is just waiting to be brought to life with your unique vision! Create an oasis of entertaining on the covered patio, and put your green thumb to work cultivating your favorite plants.
