From the Seller: What I love about the home – 

“The 2-hour summer sunsets with dinner guests on the deck.  Picking fresh greens, berries, and fruit from the garden. Quiet rooms that provide for great sleeping.  A walkable, safe and friendly neighborhood.  Watching the sea life, boaters, and the dynamic tides of the South Sound. Lots of storage for things and RV’s.  Bike riding across the Narrows Bridge. Living 3 miles to Fircrest Golf Club, 2 miles to Chambers Bay, and 1 mile to shopping, and restaurants, including Boat House 19, Narrows Marina, and Narrows Brewery. 35 minutes to SEATAC and 45 minutes to SODO.  The affordability of a great lifestyle living in the West bank of Tacoma.”

This West Slope location is minutes to everything you need: Shopping, restaurants, brewery, cafés and easy freeway access.  Just 4 minutes away you can enjoy a cocktail with a stunning view or drop your boat in to take a cruise on the water. The Narrows Marina is a straight shot down South 19th Street and less than a mile away. Family owned and operated, Narrows Marina has been serving boat enthusiasts in Pierce County and the South Sound area since 1949 with their market, tackle supplies and fuel. Enjoy a day on the water, tie up on the dock and dine at Boathouse 19 or grab a growler at the Narrows Brewing where you can pick from a rotating selection of 14 craft beers.

The Titlow Beach Marine Preserve – home to Titlow Park, is a special local and tourist spot with incredible views that stretch the Tacoma Narrows. Morning or evenings are lovely along the 1.3 mile beach front or walk/run trails. This is also a haven for kayakers with an easy launch… and if you’re lucky, you’ll see some playful seals and occasional Orca pods. Tacoma Parks is proud of the newly installed  sprayground a summertime favorite to splash, play or cool off and is free to use! A sunset ritual is to grab fish and chips or an ice cream cone from Steamer’s Seafood Café and eat out doors or hang with the locals at the Beach Tavern for comfort bar food, beers on tap and sports viewing.

For groceries, dining and other needs, you won’t have to go far as most everything is just a few minutes away! Locally owned and operated market Harbor Greens is 4 minutes away off Bridgeport Way. They have a great selection of local & hard-to-find specialty items, an in-house butcher, a full-service deli with gourmet sandwiches, salads and delicious pizza you can eat there or take home to bake. A little farther down Bridgeport Way is Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Safeway and Homegoods.

Entertainment isn’t hard to find. Visit the modern and up to date bowling and recreation center at the Narrows Plaza Bowl with a snack bar, lane rentals by the hour, plus live DJs and an arcade; great for parties or league play. Like to golf or swim? Join the Fircrest Golf Club established in 1924.
