Wow! What a great opportunity for someone! This townhome is available for the first time as a rental. Located just off Fauntleroy Way SW just 30 paces from the bus stop! It is setback from the street so you don't hear the traffic, yet it is just minutes from everything -- Alaska Junction, the ferry, Lincoln Park, Trader Joes, Whole Foods, QFC, and more. Access to this townhome is between two other houses so it has a very secluded setting.
A 6' fence around the front courtyard provides all the privacy needed. Two things make this home so special -- the amount of natural daylight and the wood finishes. There are numerous windows drenching the spaces in sunshine and natural daylight. Many of the lower floor windows are obscure to provide both light and privacy. The finish work in this home is incredible. The carpenter who built it was simply a master. Clear timber (no knots) has been used on all the casing, stairwell, everywhere. The stairs are 2-tone -- with a rosewood-type of tread and an ash-type of riser. (Sorry we don't know our woods better!)
This home has the California Great Room concept with the living room and kitchen connected under a vaulted, nine-foot ceiling to give a feeling of grandeur and spaciousness. Over the gas fireplace is a hearth that will fit a big-screen TV so you can have the ambiance of a fire while watching a movie. A half bath off the living room saves running upstairs. Another under-stairwell closet acts as a guest closet for coats and shoes.
The kitchen is both immaculate and efficient. Granite countertops with a large countertop separating kitchen from living room provides ample space for preparing and serving meals. Stainless steel appliances -- including dishwasher, over-range microwave, refrigerator, range, and double sink are accented nicely by the downlighting. A pullout sprayer at the kitchen sink along with a garbage disposal makes clean up a breeze. You will find a stackable washer/dryer in a large closet (with storage) at the top of the stairs. (No lugging clothes up and down stairs!)
Next to this, at the front of the home, is a small bedroom with built-in shelving in the closet. This space would work great as a workout room, nursery, home office, hobby room, yoga, or ?? Down the short hall is the full bath with tile surround. What is unique here is the window above the shower! For most (older) homes this set-up is awful as water gets all around the window. Here the window is very high so it lets in natural light without being a problem. The master bedroom in the back of the house is large with a built-in closet system. There is also a security system pad on the wall so you can activate the system before going to bed without having to run downstairs! Smart!
