Enter our home via a rocking chair front porch and into a large living room with picture windows and gleaming fir floors. Through the dining room is the kitchen and mudroom/laundry room with washer/dryer and storage. Beyond the mudroom is the landscaped backyard.
One bedroom is on the first floor plus a very large bathroom with shower and soaking tub. A second bedroom plus study/nursery and newly tiled bathroom are on the second floor. There s lots of storage space in the attic and basement.
The Columbia City neighborhood and our house are very walkable with a Walkscore of 85, suggesting that most errands can be done on foot. It s about three blocks to Columbia City s shops and restaurants, the new PCC, Arks Lodge Cinema, the public library, and the Farmers Market. The Light Rail Station is another four blocks (a 12 minute walk from our house). Genessee Park with soccer fields, playgrounds, and the Microsoft shuttle is three blocks away. Lake Washington is about half a mile away. Third Place Books and Raconteur are less than a mile away.
In addition to being close to everything, you get the quiet of a single family house on a large landscaped lot. We terraced the backyard almost 10 years ago, so you get to enjoy the mature landscaping. We added a pebble patio and space for a fire pit that are great for entertaining. The side yard has perennial plantings, a sandbox, and a tree house. The detached garage is great for storage and there s lots of on-street parking.
The house has a new high efficiency forced air furnace and hot water heater. All kitchen appliances have been replaced over the past five years. The first floor has fir floors throughout and the second floor is mostly carpeted with tiles in the bathroom and wood floors in the study/nursery.
