Loved Montlake Dutch Colonial

This wonderful, bright and airy 3 BR 1.5 BA Dutch Colonial in Montlake has been loved by the same owners for forty years. Surrounded by beautifully kept landscaping and mature plantings including a sweet Magnolia tree to greet you at the front door. From the long driveway, enter into the spacious foyer and notice the natural light that spills in throughout.
The living room delights with a mantled wood burning fireplace centered between two sets of French doors that lead to the front deck. Across the foyer is the substantial dining room with hardwood floors, recessed lighting and a great place to entertain. Open the back French doors to expand your space and enjoy the private lawn and garden. An excellent opportunity to exercise your green thumb! The carport also allows for extra storage.
The updated kitchen has remodeled touches with abundant maple cabinets, Dacor gas stove, warming drawer and stainless steel appliances. There is room for multiple cooks in the kitchen with prep sink and plenty of counter space and storage. Off the hallway is a pantry, closet and remodeled half bath with wainscoting and a pedestal sink.
Take the banistered staircase to the upper level brimming with natural light. Vintage moulding decorate every room and fresh paint renews the interior. The three bedrooms, plus a den, each have large windows. The updated full bath is also off the generous landing. Room to expand in the basement—workshop, storage or design a living space.
Convenient to shops, restaurants and Montlake Elementary. Enjoy a cup of coffee at Fuel on the way to the library. Dinner at Café Lago. The Arboretum, UW and the light rail are minutes away. Close to downtown, I-5 and 520.
