In April of 1997, Stephanie and I purchased this 1917 Craftsman Bungalow in the North end district of Tacoma. At 3,068 square feet, this house was built for Seraphion and Lillian Ball in 1917, at a cost of $14,000 as recorded in the Tacoma newspapers, a somewhat inflated price because of World War I. They sold the house in 1920 to Rosscoe R. Renfro for $10,000. Renfro later sold the house to Charles and Esther Rickabaugh in 1922 for $8,000 cash.
The second floor has three bathrooms, a laundry room and a full bath. The basement is about half finished with a family room and office.
There are several additional features of our house including a windowseat, and alabaster light shades.
