This remarkable early 1900s Craftsman home has been completely renovated from the studs out and has been finished with extraordinary attention to detail. It sits perched in a private greenbelt setting and has views of Elliott Bay, downtown Seattle, and the port, yet is only 5 miles from the city center.
The house is 2,500 finished square feet on 3 above ground levels. There is also an attic that provides another 500 square feet of dry, secure storage.
Main level: The entire main floor features Brazilian cherry floors, extensive mahogany wood work, Arts and Crafts lighting, and vintage double-hung windows. The living room and dining room provide beautiful spaces for everyday living and entertaining. Adjacent to the living room is a cozy library or TV room.
The kitchen is a cooks dream, with stainless steel Viking appliances a 6-burner gas cook top, bottom mount refrigerator, wall mounted oven, hood vent, and dishwasher slab granite counters, and cherry cabinets. Also on this level are a powder room and coat closet.
The living room opens to a large outdoor deck that overlooks the greenbelt and Elliott Bay beyond. The deck features a beautiful outdoor fireplace and built-in stainless steel grill, making it a great space for year round enjoyment of the beautiful setting.
Upper level: The upstairs features refinished fir floors, which are original to the house, and more double-hung windows and period lighting. The enormous master suite includes a sitting area with views towards Elliott Bay and the lights of the port, as well as a walk-in closet and master bath with period fixtures. A second bedroom suite provides children or guests with a wonderful living space, including a full bathroom and plenty of closet space.
Also on the upper level are a sitting area and the laundry room.
Lower level: The lower level is above ground and includes full windows, making this a true living space. The configuration of the space allows for a multitude of uses. The large, open room could a media room, exercise room, or additional living space. The smaller room on this same level, currently used as an office, could be a bedroom. This level also includes a full bath, allowing the entire floor to be used as a separate living quarters for guests.
Grounds: The property has been terraced and planted with evergreen bushes and plants that bloom year round, including magnolias, camellias, rhododendrons, azaleas, and more. With no grass to cut, just a little maintenance watering in the summer, raking in the fall will provide year-round enjoyment of the surroundings. The property also includes mature maples, cedars, and other trees, which provide a welcome home for many varieties of birds. A nesting pair of bald eagles is clearly visible across the greenbelt, and a blue heron calls a tree on the property home for part of the year.
