Northshore and Browns Point are situated on the eastern side of the entrance to Commencement Bay, which leads south from Puget Sound to the busy Port of Tacoma and has a little bit of fun history behind it. In 1887, two years before Washington became a state, a fixed white light lens lantern was placed on a white post on Point Brown. It was about twelve feet above sea level and 50 yards from the low water end of shore. In 1901 the first lighthouse and a house for the lighthouse keeper were built, which today is known as the Browns Point Lighthouse Park – a popular outdoor spot for locals and provides the community waterfront access, enticing beachcombers year round and sunbathers and picnickers during the summer. A large green space makes this a nice spot for a picnic as you watch the deep-sea ships entering Tacoma’s busy portal. It’s also the best spot to watch the fireworks along Commencement Bay on the 4th of July.

This home sits near the North Shore Public Golf Course featuring a fun, yet challenging, well manicured 18-hole public course. Players of every level can enjoy golf at North Shore. On the Greens Restaurant, perfect for a pre- or post-round meal, features a delightful menu of American fare.

Welcome to sweet little Sumner! This gem of a home is tucked away in a quiet little cul-de-sac, but so close to everything to love about downtown Sumner – the Rhubarb Pie Capital!

It’s called the Rhubarb Pie Capital because they really know how to honor rhubarb.The Sumner valley produces amazingly tall and thick rhubarb and they serve up some darn good Rhubarb pie, with the kind of pie crust that’s been handed down from generations of grandmas. Just head on over to the mom and pop operation  Berryland Cafe, if you want to know what an outstanding pie tastes like. If you’re a pie baker, start whipping yours up now for that blue ribbon and enter the Rhubarb Bake-Off at the Sumner’s Rhubarb Days in August. If pie eating is more your style, there’s a contest for that too.

If you can’t wait until August for a pie event, then mark your calendar for April 7th for the Daffodil Festival – an annual tradition since 1926. The Daffodil Festival Grand Floral Parade is an annual celebration of the community, history, traditions, and growth, of its home of Pierce County. It consists of over 180 entries, including floats, bands, marching and always revolves around fresh-cut daffodils, hence the name. The theme for this year’s parade is “Traditions in Bloom.” Come join the fun, music and food, featuring Stack’s Burgers, Fries & Shakes (their burgers are amazing!), Hamhock Jones BBQ/Soul Food, Farrelli’s Pizza Mobile Oven, Hometown Dogs and some local staples like, Trackside Pizza, Stuck Junction Saloon, Sorci’s Italian Cafe (best crab mac n cheese I’ve ever tasted), Berryland Cafe, Buttered Biscuit (see below) and more!

The Buttered Biscuit is one of the best places to grab breakfast in downtown – it’s so popular that there’s often a line waiting to be seated. It’s not hard to see why with their big portions of filling, American comfort food in homey surroundings. No matter what you get off the menu, you must have a piece of their thick, warm cornbread with sweet cream.

Now, Sumner isn’t just all about delicious food, although it’s a pretty nice bonus to live so close to all these incredible, locally owned eateries. There are also a ton of locally owned shops too, all along Main Street. The most popular store in town though that out of towners even flock too is the Old Cannery Furniture Warehouse – a proud family owned and operated store. It’s the go-to place for artisan and leather furniture and unique home furnishing.

If you’re looking for some other local places to get out and about to, there are several local parks to choose from. Loyalty Park, recently received a makeover and added a zip line, a tilted sky runner (an overhead spinning piece of play equipment) and several tilted and spinning seats. It also has standard slides, jungle gym and swing sets. There’s also lots of big trees that provide a ton of shade, a large green lawn area and many picnic tables with grills. Rainier View Park, aptly named for its stunning view of Mount Rainier. It’s a unique and beautiful art space with mosaic benches to sit on. It also has a playground, a basketball court, picnic areas – and an insider tip, it’s also a place to find hand painted, hidden rocks from the Sumner Rock’s art group. Both parks are about a 5 minute drive away.

If you’ve got a bit of a green thumb, you’ll be excited to know that Windmill Gardens is less than a mile away and the destination for garden inspiration! Their amazing full service plant staff can provide you with plenty of info to spruce up your flowers beds, plant info, fresh cut flower delivery, hanging baskets, custom services and floral arrangements for parties and weddings. They also have some great events coming up – Ciscoe Morris will be there on 4/6 for a green club talk! Don’t miss the Windmill Bistro for some nice, casual cuisine after you’ve taken a stroll mapping out your future garden. They also have a spa & salon, a tea shop and a pond store.

For all your grocery shopping needs, Fred Meyer is less than a mile away.

Commuters will appreciate the short drive to Sumner’s Sounder Station – less than 2 miles, as well as the quick access to Highway 167 – 6 miles away.

Breathtaking Views on Caledonia Rd Lot

Enjoy the breathtaking views of Commencement Bay, Olympic Mountains & the city lights of Tacoma. Design & build your custom dream home in coveted Browns Point, on this open & gently sloped lot. Imagine watching the soaring eagles daily & relaxing each night with the spectacular sunsets. Become an exclusive member of the Browns Point Improvement Club. Surrounded by upscale homes in an established quiet & peaceful neighborhood. All utilities are available in the paved street.

  • 9,583 square foot lot
  • $2,630 annual taxes
  • Offered for $200,000

Browns Point is situated on the eastern side of the entrance to Commencement Bay, which leads south from Puget Sound to the busy Port of Tacoma and has a little bit of fun history behind it. In 1887, two years before Washington became a state, a fixed white light lens lantern was placed on a white post on Point Brown. It was about twelve feet above sea level and 50 yards from the low water end of shore. In 1901 the first lighthouse and a house for the lighthouse keeper were built, which today is known as the Browns Point Lighthouse Park – a popular outdoor spot for locals and provides the community waterfront access, enticing beachcombers year round and sunbathers and picnickers during the summer. A large green space makes this a nice spot for a picnic as you watch the deep-sea ships entering Tacoma’s busy portal. It’s also the best spot to watch the fireworks along Commencement Bay on the 4th of July.

If you don’t want to watch the fireworks from Browns Point and would like to partake in some red, white and blue festivities, the Tacoma Freedom Fair happens every year along Ruston Way – just 23 miles away. There’s air show entertainment, great food, live music, classic cars, tons of vendors and in the evening, just as the first bit of darkness sets in, there’s a grand finale of Fireworks that launch off a giant barge and is set to an upbeat playlist streamed by a local radio station.

Not only can you look forward to being in this close knit, quiet community, but there’s also dining and shopping options within close range. Town Center Foods is less than a mile away and offers the Browns Point Diner – classic American food with our hand dipped milkshakes. Or step into The Sandbar, an extension of the diner and a happy hour lounge for some appetizers, drinks and karaoke. In this same center, you can also find the Lighthouse Market for some light grocery shopping, Lumpia World, North 47 Brewing Co., Hilltop India Restaurant and Pizza, ACE Hardware, a nail spa, dry cleaners and more.

The Cliff House Restaurant is just a few minutes away along Marine View Drive and serving up Pacific Northwest seafood, steaks & pasta served in an elegant dining room with sweeping Sound views. The crab and artichoke dip is a highly recommended appetizer to share while waiting on entrees. Most reviews you’ll find don’t mention that this is a kid friendly establishment. A pro tip though – be sure to make reservations if you’d like to nab a table with a view of the water.

If you are looking for other dining or shopping options, Downtown Tacoma is about a 20 minute drive away. For activities and entertainment, you’ll find, the Washington State History Museum, the Glass Museum, and the Tacoma Art Museum.
