An Active Lifestyle Home:

Situated just a block from Beer Shevra Park and Lake Washington. Now, imagine yourself walking the dog to play catch in the park or paddle boarding after a good day’s work; all possible. Image walking to Lake Washington, the light rail station for a ride downtown, or to sporting events or concerts. Plenty of room to entertain or host guests, and/or store your outdoor equipment, you’ll find this home will fit your lifestyle perfectly.

Possibilities are endless:

Ask for a copy of the our general contractors bid to complete the heated basement with an added bathroom and kitchenette. There’s plenty of room for a rental unit or AirBnB; recoup your expenses in a few years, pay down the mortgage or simply add cashflow to your budget for that needed mid-winter vacation.

Value with proximity:

The Seward Park/Rainier Beach neighborhoods are changing with the addition of light rail services. But even if you like to drive, you’ll find that nothing is far out of reach; Columbia City, Beacon Hill or even Downtown Seattle. The best part, you’re not paying for a “Bluechip” address which makes this a real value in an upcoming neighborhood. What’s more, the median selling price in these two neighborhoods went up 21% between 2016-2017.

Recently refreshed:

This classic Seattle craftsman offers old world materials with modern systems, convenance and reliability. The beauty of a time past shines to make this home one-of-kind. The sunny corner lot is the perfect place for the avid gardener and a wonderful place to spend time on the weekends. From the Mahogany staircase to the fir floors this home oozes with charm. The stained glass window graces the elegant entry with a nod to a by-gone-era. You’ll love the open large spaces perfect for the entertainer. Kitchen and bathroom have been updated perfectly to keep with the charm of this Seattle Craftsman.
