Originally built in 1918, this delightful home has been smartly updated for today’s lifestyle while maintaining the inherent charisma of vintage charm. Modern improvements such as a high efficiency furnace, tankless hot water, exterior paint, and new patio, roof, double-pane windows, doors, and upstairs carpet enhance living in this classic architectural home without relinquishing the traditional appeal.
Standing proudly off the street, the house is surrounded by romantic gardens, a patio for outdoor gatherings, a vegetable garden and play areas. A long driveway plus garage agreeably increases parking, cavorting and storage options.
The front foyer welcomes you into the living room appointed with hardwood floors, high ceilings, a mantled gas fireplace and sunroom. The kitchen is large enough for all the chefs plus few extra “dinner prep” attendees. Attractive cabinetry encircles the Viking stove, large refrigerator and Boshe dishwasher. An adjacent mud room the leads to the yard and lower level laundry room, storage, workbench and garage. Also on the main floor are the tiled bathroom and handy laundry chute.
The upstairs has been re-configured for three bedrooms and a den with French doors open to peer down at the garden and Lake Washington views. Another new spacious deck is in the main bedroom with French doors that open to allow cross breezes and the intoxicating spring and summer fragrance of the lush and verdant neighborhood.
Located in the fabulous Lakewood/Seward Park neighborhood close to Lake Washington, Seward Park, PCC, Flying Squirrel Pizza, Bent Burger, coffee shops and more.
