5 Favorite Things About This Warm & Inviting 3-Bedroom, 1-Bath Rambler w/Huge Backyard in Tacoma 

This lovely rambler offers the best of both worlds: Not only are you nestled on a quiet street with a huge, park-like backyard all to yourself, but this 988-square-foot home-sweet-home is in an incredibly convenient location! This residence is merely minutes to excellent transit options, Joint Base Lewis-McChord, shopping, dining, outdoor amenities, and more. Located at 10515 Irene Ave SW Tacoma, WA 98499, this 3-bedroom, 1-bath home is listed for $375,000. 

Take a moment to explore this Tacoma home’s top 5 highlights: 

1. Excellent location surrounded by convenience! 

From this central location, you have a huge variety of amenities right at your fingertips. Several eateries and local services are nearby on Pacific Highway, but when you’d like more variety, head to Lakewood Towne Center just 5 minutes away for one-stop shopping, dining, and entertainment. Places like Target, Safeway, a movie theater, PetSmart, PetCo, Bed Bath & Beyond, Michaels, dozens of restaurants and more are all right there! 

There are also several excellent commuting options in this area—I5/SR-512 Park & Ride (which includes 493 parking spaces) is only half a mile away, and Lakewood Station (which features 600 parking spaces and a Sounder Train stop) is only a mile from home. You can also be on Highway 512 or Interstate-5 in just a couple of minutes, and Joint Base Lewis-McChord is minutes away. 

For outdoor amenities, you’re surrounded by the many lakes of Lakewood and several parks. Being so close to local lakes makes it easy to head out for an afternoon of boating, fishing, or swimming without having to travel far! 

2. Inviting open-concept living offers a warm & welcoming atmosphere. 

Time spent in the comfort of home is an absolute joy in part thanks to this home’s inviting layout. The front door opens up into the living room, where a large window lets in rejuvenating, cheerful sunlight. The dining area and adjacent kitchen are easily within reach, making it easy to entertain guests and spend quality time with loved ones any day of the week. The kitchen features a smart design with a timeless aesthetic, and direct backyard access makes it easy to grill up dinner on the patio or enjoy al fresco dining whenever the weather warms up! (Plus, this home has A/C so you can stay comfy indoors, too.) 

3. Updates ensure this beauty is move-in ready. 

A new roof was installed in July, ensuring this home is ready to take on the future with ease. You’ll also find an all-new tile shower in the stylish bathroom. 

4. Fantastic flexibility thanks to 3 bedrooms and an oversized garage. 

If you find yourself with an extra room or 2, you can finally set up that home office, gym, or hobby room that you’ve been dreaming about! Even more versatility awaits in the oversized 1-car garage; of course you can use the garage for parking, but you can also use the space for hobbies and projects. The large driveway also provides parking for an RV or boat, and there’s an attached carport as well. 

5. Huge backyard is a dream come true! 

When you first arrive home, the front yard’s lush lawn and established landscaping offer just a hint of the outdoor beauty that awaits in the fully fenced backyard. The backyard oasis shows off a sprawling park-like setting, and a sprinkler system is at the ready! A shed/outbuilding provides storage for all of your outdoor tools and toys, and a covered picturesque patio offers a relaxing retreat rain or shine.
