Columbia City is a Seattle neighborhood being reborn, breathing new life into the Rainier Valley area. This recently-reconstructed 3 BR, 1 bath, 1000 square foot craftsman is a bit like the neighborhood, with a base firmly planted in its past but new features that speak to its resurrection.
The clean, classic exterior gives way to a very modern interior. The kitchen features cherry-colored wood cabinets, sandstone countertops and stainless steel appliances. Bamboo hardwood gives a sturdy, clean feel to the living room while a new carpet keeps the bedroom light. A quaint, suburban patio and backyard is portioned within an inch of its life with greens giving way to a carport. At $279,000, it's a restarted home that's perfect as a starter.
