Victorian Beauty & Commencement Bay Views Await: Discover this 4-Bedroom, 2-Bath Home in North Tacoma 

A one-of-a-kind opportunity presents itself with this captivating Victorian residence that’s nestled in a prime North Tacoma neighborhood. Built in 1927 and showcasing vintage charm at every turn, this 2,043-square-foot gem features 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, and delightful living spaces designed with entertaining in mind. Gorgeous outdoor space is in the mix as well, and sweeping, unobstructed views of Commencement Bay, Mt. Rainier, and beyond are all yours! Located at 3418 N Union Ave Tacoma, WA 98407 and just blocks to both the heart of the Proctor District and the waterfront, this home is listed for $650,000. 

While this lovingly cared for home boasts much of its original aesthetic, newer updates (which include the roof, windows, skylights, electrical, and heating) all provide new owners with peace of mind. In the formal living room, a grand wood burning fireplace anchors the space, while huge picture windows offer idyllic views that stretch on into the scenic distance. Entertain guests in style or just enjoy quiet evenings snuggled up on the couch while a cozy fire roars—home-sweet-home just doesn’t get better than this! 

The layout flows right into the dining room, and those who love to host are sure to appreciate having a spacious setting for holiday gatherings and dinner parties. In the expansive kitchen, you’ll find a smart layout that’s brimming with storage options and space to really spread out in. Stainless steel appliances promise efficiency, large counters offer ample space for meal prep, and there’s even room for a potential dining nook. A built-in desk offers the perfect “home office,” and even more cabinetry here ensures you have no shortage of storage options.

The main level also includes a large bedroom and a full bath, and upstairs you’ll find 3 more bedrooms and another full bath. Each bedroom retreat offers something a bit different—vaulted ceilings, wood paneling elements, and stunning bay views all await. Even more flexible space can be found in the basement—there’s a work bench that’s perfect for hobbies, and plenty of storage space as well. 

One of this home’s stand-out highlights is its incredible outdoor setting. At the front of the home, mature landscaping shows off a storybook scene, and perched above it all is a deck that offers one of the best views around. Imagine relaxing on a lounge chair on a warm summer day, or having friends over for al fresco dining—either way, breathtaking views of Commencement Bay provide the perfect backdrop! In the backyard you have even more lovely outdoor space to enjoy, and here, a large deck provides a private setting.
