Tacoma Real Estate August 27, 2021

Updated 6-Bedroom, 2-Bath Home with Rental Potential in Separate Basement Unit in Tacoma’s North End 

This charming clinker brick mid-century bungalow is ready for all that life brings your way! Featuring a 2,602-square-foot layout, this home provides the opportunity for you to live on the main level and rent out the daylight basement. You’ll find 4 bedrooms on the main floor and 2 bedrooms in the basement unit, and both have their own kitchens, living spaces, bathrooms, and laundry amenities. It’s truly the perfect setup! Located at 1611 N Madison Street Tacoma, WA 98406 and just blocks to Proctor District, University Puget Sound, and more, this updated home is listed for $625,000. 

Eye-catching curb appeal delights each time you arrive home, and this residence’s pride in ownership is immediately evident. Several smart upgrades have been made so you can move right in and not have to worry about a thing; discover newer energy efficient vinyl windows, roof, gas furnace, water heater, and side sewer; fresh upstairs interior paint; and more. 

On the main level, the front door opens up into the bright and cheerful living room where sunlight cascades in through the newer white vinyl windows. A classic wood burning fireplace anchors the scene, and a simply elegant aesthetic with beautiful coved ceilings shows off a hint of what the rest of this home has to offer! From here, gleaming laminate hardwoods flow into the adjacent dining room (original hardwoods can be found underneath the laminute!), and here you’ll find a sunny spot to gather with loved ones. 

The impeccably maintained kitchen shines with vintage style, and freshly painted cabinets rest alongside the accented counters and modern appliances. A window here looks into the backyard, so you can admire the view while you sip your morning coffee and start your day! Laundry amenities are just steps away, making it easy to multitask; switch loads of laundry while you let dinner simmer on the stove. 

On the main level, 4 bedrooms ensure you have ample versatility so you can transform each space as your needs change and evolve over time. And of course, the same is true for this home’s downstairs apartment! An entire separate living unit with 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, a kitchen with pantry storage, and a spacious living area with a fireplace awaits in the daylight basement. This downstairs apartment even has its own separate entrance, and sidewalks throughout the property make it easy for everyone to come and go as they please. This unit makes the perfect long-term rental or Airbnb so you can generate extra income if you choose. 

This property’s outdoor spaces feature neat and tidy landscaping, and the manicured lawn offers a lovely setting for pets and little ones to play. Mature plants are also in the mix, and if you enjoy gardening, you’ll find more than enough space to put your green thumb to work. There’s also a detached garage with parking off of the backyard (the front garage is actually the main level’s laundry room and one of the bedrooms.).
