Historic 3-Bedroom, 2.5-Bath Farmhouse Estate on 0.59 Acres in Parkland Area/Tacoma 

Situated on a picturesque 0.59-acre lot in the convenient Parkland neighborhood of Tacoma, this immaculately maintained and updated 2,266-square-foot farmhouse is ready for its next chapter! Built in 1916 and thoughtfully upgraded to modern standards, this move-in ready gem offers 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and versatile living space to enjoy. You’ll also find a huge detached 2-car garage and an incredible, manicured yard that provides you with your very own outdoor oasis! Located at 216 121st St E Tacoma, WA 98445 and merely minutes to shopping, restaurants, parks, highways, JBLM and more, this Pacific Northwest beauty is listed for $595,000. 

When you arrive home, this farmhouse’s handsome exterior is made even more dreamy thanks to gorgeous landscaping. A sweet path leads right up to the traditional, inviting front porch where you can kick back and relax in the shade all summer long. Just in through the front door (which is made from antique logs!) this home’s sprawling 2,266-square-foot layout effortlessly unfolds, and you’ll find that each space has been carefully maintained. Original, historic elements throughout are sure to impress—in addition to the antique log front door, discover a vintage beam from nearby Pacific Lutheran University and original hardwoods in the living room. 

The living room offers a haven of elegant simplicity, and you can move right in and begin infusing this space with your own unique style. Decorate with a new coat of paint or stylish wallpaper, arrange comfy furniture, and add personal touches to make the space your own. The sky’s the limit! 

From here the layout flows into the dining area, and the large kitchen is just steps away. The kitchen boasts a spacious layout, and newer appliances rest alongside abundant cabinet space and generous counters. Serve up delicious homemade meals in the adjacent dining area with ease, or enjoy a casual snack thanks to bar-style counter seating. 

After dinner, you can meander into the sunken-in bonus room, where sunlight cascades in through large windows from morning ‘til evening, and vaulted ceilings let the space feel even larger. Plush carpets and the brick-accented fireplace add instant coziness; imagine gathering here with loved ones to sip on cocoa by the fire, or for memorable game nights! 

The main level also includes the primary suite, and here you’ll find more than enough space for a king-sized bed and a sitting area. An ensuite bath and a huge walk-in closet are also in the mix. Head upstairs to find the rest of this home’s bedrooms—if you have an extra room, you might consider transforming it into a home office, a hobby space, or a fitness center. Even more possibility can be found in the detached garage—not only is there room to park 2 cars, but there’s a loft and office space ready to be reimagined! (There’s also RV parking or space to park approximately 10 cars.) 

This property’s outdoor amenities present a whole other world of potential, and park-like beauty awaits at every turn, plus mountain views! Host barbecues out on the deck and have fun splashing in the full-sun pool all day long. When the sun starts to go down, gather around the fire pit to roast marshmallows. Pure bliss awaits!
