The property also includes a heated in-ground pool, mature landscaping with sprinklers in front and back, an attached one car garage with its own sub-panel and a large storage shed off the alley. Developed in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Tacoma's historic North End offers a wide variety of architecturally significant homes - from modest workman's cottages to grand mansions. Anchored by the University of Puget Sound and the Proctor District, the neighborhood features a wonderful mixture of locally owned shops and restaurants including Source Yoga, Metropolitan Market, Peaks and Pints, Cactus, Compass Rose, Chalet Bowl and the historic Blue Mouse Theater - the oldest continuously operating movie theater in Washington State. The North End offers easy access to Point Ruston and the waterfront, with miles of paved walkways, stunning water views, picnic areas, a public market and a fishing pier. The area's natural assets also include Point Defiance Park - a 702-acre urban oasis with a zoo and aquarium, extensive gardens, an old growth forest, hiking and running trails and a saltwater beach.

In the turret adjacent to the entry is a curved library with custom built-in bookshelves. A spacious formal living room with a gas fireplace is located across the entry. The formal dining room and a sitting area are located beyond the living room and can be closed off with leaded glass doors. A French door leads from the sitting area into the side yard. The gourmet kitchen has been updated with granite counters, state of the art stainless appliances, heated floors and a butler’s pantry with wine cooler and prep sink. A half bath is also located on the entry level. Four bedrooms are located on the second floor, including a spacious primary suite with a French door entry, two walk-in closets and an updated bathroom with heated floors and a glass walled shower. A second bathroom is located off the landing along with a cedar lined closet with hook ups for a stacked washer/dryer. One of the secondary bedrooms offers access to a rooftop deck through French doors. The former servant quarters located on the third floor include a family room, an office and a fifth bedroom. The lower level features a large recreation room, laundry, storage room plus a bonus room with an exterior entry.

The Lamborn House was designed by John Proctor’s architectural firm in 1904 for local politician Charles Lamborn and his wife Maude. The Lamborn House was constructed in 1905 on a 1/3 of an acre for an astounding $4,500. Design elements include a distinctive turret on the southeast corner of the house, quarter-sawn oak floors with mahogany inlay, leaded and stained glass windows and custom built-in bookshelves with leaded glass doors. The Lamborn House is listed on the local, state and national registers of historic places as a contributing structure in Tacoma’s North Slope Historic District, which 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. The neighborhood provides easy access to 23-acre Wright Park, an eclectic mix of independently owned shops and restaurants, Stadium Thriftway, the medical center, public and private schools, the waterfront and the soon to be completed light rail extension.
