Review of Tacoma, Washington

NE Tacoma -- It's a secret.
Star Rating - 8/24/2006
NE Tacoma (Browns Point) is well known by the people who live here, but not really known to outsiders. We are behind Federal Way (King County), north of Tacoma proper and by the water. It's a community by the sound where single family homes range from 450,000 to a million plus. We are a bridge (7 minute drive) across the Tacoma water front with lots of great restaurants and entertainment and 25 minutes from downtown Seattle. Since we are by the water we have many marinas to choose from and the restaurants along the sound all have easy docking access for a nice bite to eat. Properties by the golf course which start in the 550,000+ are for the most part 3,000+ Sq. ft. homes with great views, as compared to the same builder on the east side ranging in the 750,000 - 800,000 range with no views and a considerably smaller lot. Since we are in Peirce County we are not taxed as high compared to single dwellers in King County who live across the street. I am glad I found this area and I hope I can invest more before the secret gets out.

Thank you for your great review of the Browns Point community. It is an incredible place to call home; Fun, Clean, Quiet, Peaceful and Beautiful! with many wonderful wild life sightings from eagles to red fox. I have lived in Seattle, Tacoma, Scottsdale AZ, LA and back east in Maryland, and Browns Point is by far my favorite place I have lived. Besides the beauty and beaches both sandy and rocky, the huge plus of being such a big secret is its extremely low crime rate per Sperling. This is a very safe community full of people who love and support all that Browns Point is. The history of this small community is rich and full of great stories. We moved here 18 years ago and I can't imagine living anywhere else. Lets keep it a secret though. . . just kidding I love sharing this community with others of like mind who love the NW and living in a beautiful inclusive community.
