Impeccably Updated 4-Bedroom Home with ADU & Backyard Oasis in Tacoma 

Absolutely dialed-in from the inside out, this 2,157-square-foot Tacoma home presents a fabulous one-of-a-kind opportunity! In addition to stylish cosmetic improvements that delight at every turn, this home also boasts a long list of smart updates, so you can move right in with peace of mind. 4 bedrooms and 1.75 baths offer flexibility, and excellent potential awaits in the self-contained basement ADU that could become the perfect rental or guest space. All of this is in addition to the oasis-like backyard—imagine having a picturesque getaway all to yourself in a neighborhood with this much convenience! Schools, grocery shopping, commuting options, dining, and Downtown Tacoma attractions are no more than 1 mile from home. Located at 2130 S M Street Tacoma, WA 98405, this Tacoma home is listed for $539,000. 

Situated on a sidewalk-lined street, this home shows off eye-catching curb appeal thanks to neat landscaping and a classic Craftsman front porch. It’s immediately evident that this home has been lovingly maintained over the years, and several updates are yours to benefit from. A new tankless water heater, new gas furnace, A/C, new sewer line, new Renewal by Anderson windows, new glass-panel doors and millwork, and much more are all included. (The kitchen is brimming with updates, too—more on that in a moment!) 

This home’s refreshed design embraces its 1920s origins, and while each space shines like new, vintage-inspired elements (like elegant archways and exquisite trimwork) add character. Gather in the formal dining room, relax in the adjacent inviting living area, and enjoy time spent at home in this warm and welcoming setting. 

The kitchen is right around the corner, and like the rest of the home, this space has been curated to perfection. The kitchen balances on-trend accents with timeless design, and new LVP flooring, new cabinetry, and new appliances (including a gas range) are at the ready. A modern color palette of grays and whites is punctuated by the fabulous backsplash, adding even more visual intrigue. 

A spa-like bathroom boasts a stylish aesthetic just as fashionable as the kitchen. Even the laundry room has been impeccably designed—a handy counter atop the washer and dryer, a ton of built-in storage, and charming open shelving ensure it’s easy to tackle chores and keep household essentials organized. 

This home features a 1.5-story floor plan, in addition to its finished basement. Upstairs, 2 generous bedrooms offer cozy havens for rest and rejuvenation, and the dormer is plumbed for a future bath. 

In the finished, self-contained basement, an incredible opportunity presents itself. A living space, 2 bedrooms, and a bath are all included, offering the ideal setup for a private guest space, or as a rental to generate extra income. 

In the fully fenced backyard, a whole other world of possibility opens up! The beautiful back deck is ready for sunbathing all summer long, and your space for outdoor living and dining flows down onto the patio. Enjoy fresh air out on the patio under the pergola and alongside the water feature, whether you’re simply having a quiet evening at home or hosting a get-together. Spend sunny afternoons gardening in the greenhouse and in the landscaped garden beds, and keep your garden tools in the custom shed. Plus, there’s even room to add a parking pad in the future!
