Who knew that real estate in Madison Park had such a penchant for providing lessons in morality. Take this little light blue house. From the outside, it looks quaint at best and as though it may be too cramped for both a grandmother and her tubby cat, Mr. Whiskers to reside in the house together. Ah, but if you're willing to take a chance, to look past the exterior, what treasures await! This "cozy," 3-bed, 1.5 bath, 1,370 sq. ft. craftsman home in walking distance of Lake Washington sports surprise dazzlers like vaulted ceilings, skylights, a garden and deck prime for entertaining, and even a motorized gate in the backyard for your secret entering/exiting convenience. All this in schwanky Madison Park for $649,000 -- a bargain for an inner-beaut like this gem, and certainly a small price to pay for real-life validation that it really is what's on the inside that counts.
