Restored, Historic Charm Awaits in East Tacoma’s Lincoln/McKinley District!

Regina Madiera-Gorden May 30, 2018

Built in 1905 by a shipwright, this majestic beauty awaits! REALTOR® Regina Madiera-Gorden and REALTOR® Madison Lord are excited to show this vintage treasure to the world, and for those who appreciate Tacoma’s history, this home is a definite must-see!

The current owners have lived here for 40 years, and they’re now moving to live on a boat. During their time in the home, they thoughtfully restored it, and a few of the changes they made include:

  • Installing vintage light fixtures from various older buildings around Tacoma
  • Installing granite in the kitchen from Portugal (received after the Rhodes Department stores shut down)
  • Creating a beautiful enclosed sunroom for year-round entertaining, using windows from a University of Puget Sound garage sale

“The charm, the restoration process, the uniqueness of the home's finishes and finding all those pieces themselves… they love the up-and-coming feeling of the neighborhood, and always supported the local food bank and encouraged people to frequent Lincoln Hardware,” shares Regina.

In addition to the vintage touches, you can also find 10-foot ceilings on the main floor, 9-foot ceilings upstairs, a detached 2-car garage, RV/boat parking, off-street parking, heated master bathroom floors, and unfinished basement, and more!

This 1905-built home isn’t the only thing that’s been revitalized—the Lincoln/McKinley District that it’s located in has also been experiencing some wonderful changes, including a revitalization project by the city. You can learn more about their project and goals here. In addition to new businesses, a few neighborhood perks include Top of Tacoma (a bar with a full menu), easy access to Stanley and Seaforts via the E 34th bridge, easy access to downtown Tacoma and Interstate 5/Interstate-705, as well as being close to Lincoln High School.
