Restored 1920s Craftsman with Outdoor Oasis in Tacoma’s North Proctor Neighborhood 

Nestled in a picturesque North Proctor neighborhood, this immaculately reimagined, 2,490-square-foot residence is brimming with incredible updates at every turn! No expense was spared in upgrading this historic 1924-built beauty, and you’ll find original details alongside modern amenities for that perfect blend of vintage and contemporary. Highlights include the chef-ready kitchen, tons of versatility thanks to flexible square footage, an outdoor oasis with views of Commencement Bay… and more! Located at 3810 N Madison St Tacoma, WA 98407 and just 2-3 minutes to Ruston Way waterfront and the heart of the Proctor District, this 2-bedroom, 1.75-bath home is listed for $795,000.

Eye-catching curb appeal offers a hint of the impeccably maintained and updated spaces that await inside this residence. This home greets you with a brand new Milgard front door with Rejuvenation hardware, a new mail slot, and hardwired ring cameras for peace of mind! As soon as you step inside, a welcoming atmosphere envelopes you in that content feeling that only “home sweet home” can inspire! Discover a brand new entryway, natural light galore, original hardwood floors, a classic brick-accented gas fireplace with a new insert, crisp original white trim, and more. 

From here the layout unfolds into the sunlit dining room with a built-in banquet and custom leaded glass transom windows. The chef’s kitchen is easily within reach from here, and this expertly curated space features only the best of the best. Every detail has been carefully selected to not only offer visually attractive design, but premium finishes and amenities are all in the mix as well. Custom and sustainable dove-tail cabinetry by Woodharbor Cabinetry rests alongside a Thermador range and dishwasher, a Liebher fridge and freeze, a Wolf speed oven, and a Zephyr fan. Cosmetic features include Tempest Tile from a local Portland company, luxurious quartz counters, a Newport Brass faucet, and more. 

One of the major highlights of this home is the fact that it has so much flexible square footage, from comfortable bedrooms that shine like new, to the dynamic basement and detached garage. Downstairs you’ll find a family room, a separate workout space, a possible 3rd bedroom, a ¾ bath, and laundry area. In the basement, lifeproof flooring ensures durability in the years to come, and you’ll also find custom trim and doors, House of Antique hardware knobs and hinges, plus a Rejuvenation mirror and light fixtures as well. Plans for an ADU are also available, offering even more possibilities! 

This property is also poised for summertime perfection, and outside you have an expansive deck that overlooks established landscaping and even offers views of Commencement Bay. Over the years the sellers have planted new trees (you’ll find maple and magnolia in the mix!), and you’ll find plenty of opportunity to put your green thumb to work if you choose!
