Old Town Modern Home

Just four blocks from the waterfront, this stunning modern home offers the best of Old Town starting with a beautiful view and strong community vibe.

One of the best things about this home is you can park your car in the attached garage – and leave it. Everything you need is close here: the water, great food, essential services, beautiful outdoor spaces…and easy freeway access. If you’re commuting North or South, you’re only 13 minutes away from the I-5 on-ramp.

Just a few blocks Southwest of this home is a path to Garfield Park. The park is adjacent to Annie Wright Schools and the Tacoma Lawn and Tennis Club, both of which were founded in the late 1800’s.

Despite the name, Old Town has a wide range of architectural styles. This home was built in 2008 with a unique industrial edge and an emphasis on blending indoor & outdoor living spaces. With it’s floor-to-ceiling windows & exotic materials, it ensures that the views inside are just as attractive as the ones outside.  CLICK HERE FOR A VIRTUAL WALKTHROUGH!

The small business district in Old Town is full of small businesses and essential services. There are two coffee shops nearby – locally owned Markee plus the always busy Starbucks. Markee serves three meals a day and regularly hosts community events and live music. (The shop is also available to host and cater private parties). Local eatery Montamara Kitchen also serves Valhalla coffee – and a mean brunch! This cozy neighborhood spot has some of the best eggs benedict and Danish pancakes in town!

Another local favorite is the The Spar Tavern – an iconic brick building perched on the corner of North 30th and McCarver. They have a coffee shop in front, and full seating around back, plus pool tables and live music on the weekends.

Another great feature of this home is the access to the water. You’re only four blocks from the Old Town Dock and Ruston Way Waterfront which now runs all the way from Old Town to Point Defiance Park.

There are many dining choices available along that route, including  Katie Downs Waterfront Tavern (renowned for it’s deep dish pizza!), Duke’s Chowder House (great stop for happy hour) and long time favorite Harbor Lights (you may not finish your walk if you stop for a cocktail here!) At the other end is newly developed (and still growing!) Point Ruston – home to shopping & dining – Dolce Si a Sicilian Bakery & Cafe, WildFin American Grill, Jewel Box Cafe, Farrelli’s Pizza, Stack 571, Ice Cream Social and more on the way!

You can also take in the newest blockbuster hit at the Century Theaters (roomy lounge chairs!) Take in some local music at the Free Summer Concert Series, running until September 2nd. There’s also a new spray park, a playground and Wheel Fun Rentals for cruising the strip.
