This iconic home is beautifully sited on a corner lot in the heart of the North Slope Historic District. The gracious entry hall is flanked by a front parlor and a large formal dining room, each with its own free-standing gas stove. The dining room leads to an updated kitchen with granite counters and state of the art stainless appliances. A back hallway off the kitchen leads to the servant staircase and an unfinished basement. The entry level also includes a half bathroom and a back parlor that can be closed off from the front parlor and the entry hall with ornate pocket doors.

Three bedrooms and two bathrooms are located on the second floor, including a spacious primary suite with a dressing area, a claw-foot tub and shower, dual vanities and partial water views. The former servant quarters on the third floor includes a view balcony, a family room, a fourth bedroom and a half bathroom that could easily be expanded to include a tub or shower. Laundry and additional storage are located in the unfinished basement, which has its own exterior entrance.

Original architectural elements include oak and fir floors, an ornate fireplace mantle and surround, Eastlake-era door and cabinet hardwood, built-in cabinetry, original windows and custom fir trim. Significant improvements have been made to the house, including updated plumbing and electrical, exterior paint, a new roof in 2012 and wood replacement windows on the second floor.

The grounds include fully fenced front and side yards, mature landscaping, a sprinkler system, a side patio and a three-car garage off the alley.

Tacoma’s North Slope is one of Washington State’s largest historic districts, consisting of more than 950 homes. Much of the neighborhood was built on a 166-acre farm owned at one time by Tacoma pioneer Job Carr.

The Carr family sold the land for residential development in the 1880s, and the district experienced three distinct building booms from 1888-1893, 1902-1915 and 1919-1929. As a result, the neighborhood features a wide variety of architectural styles including Victorian, Craftsman, Tudor and American Foursquare.

Early North Slope residents of note included Washington State Governor Ernest Lister and a young Bing Crosby. The neighborhood provides easy access to 23-acre Wright Park, Stadium District amenities, the medical center, public and private schools, the waterfront and the soon to be completed light rail extension.
