Sheridan House

1319 N. 4th Street, Tacoma, WA. 98403


Originally constructed in 1895 as a single-family residence, decades ago Sheridan House was converted to four one-bedroom apartments, two on the main floor, two on the second floor.  A new (late 2019) forced air gas furnace heats the 2nd & top floors.  Main floor units (1 & 2) now have cadet heat.  Those units have their own electric meters, as does Unit #4.  Coin-operated laundry facilities in the basement.  Two garages and two spacious storage areas in the basement are rented out separately.


One block to Pierce Transit Route #11 (Pt. Defiance--University of Puget Sound), 2 blocks to Route 1 (6th Ave), 3 blocks to Tacoma General Hospital & Evergreen College, 5 blocks to Wright Park.


Apartment #1, main floor, 715 s.f., a decorative fireplace, dining room, bay windows, built-ins, and a tiled bath.  Large bedroom with 3 closets.   Hardwood floors in living, dining & bedrooms.


Apartment #2, main floor, 705 s.f., features restored hardwood floors,  large living and bedrooms, small office/computer room between the kitchen & living room.  Bay windows in the living room. Hardwood floors in living, bedroom & computer rooms.


Apartment #4, second floor, 425 s.f., has a large living room with big bay window.  The bedroom is tiny—barely room for the bed (but has a deep closet!).  Shower, no tub.  Lots of kitchen cabinets.  Hardwood floors in living & bedrooms.


When we purchased the house in 1999, the two large view bedrooms on the third floor were wasted space.  Lacking kitchen or bath facilities on the third floor, we modified a second floor unit to accommodate use by tenants with bedrooms on the third floor, a shared housing arrangement - Apartment #3.


3-A Bedroom is the largest, at 250 s.f. bedroom on the third floor, with a 4' x 6' walk in closet.  Great views to the north and east—Mt. Rainier!


3-B Bedroom on the second floor is next to the rest of Apartment #3.  Windows facing historic Murray House.  180 s.f.  Two closets. Hardwood floor.


3-C Bedroom is the other third floor bedroom, also facing Murray House.  200 s.f. of finished space, a 4' x 6' walk in closet and additional storage under the eaves. 


Common area in Apartment #3 includes a large, carpeted living room with bay window, a bright kitchen with a large refrigerator, microwave as well as electric range and plenty of cupboard space. The bath has a shower over the tub.  The three tenants are asked to clean up after themselves in the kitchen and bath.

All tenants are asked to keep noise to a level that is not intrusive to neighbors.  No smoking is permitted in the building nor anywhere on the property.
