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.
