Find a Perfect Fireworks-Watching Spot in Eastlake for $749K


Now, the house is a platform for watching the fireworks over Lake Union. In 1926, it was just a carriage house. Things change. A couple of decades after it was built, it was turned into a house. Now, it is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath house that has second floor views of the lake, the city, the mountains - and of course, the fireworks. Inside, there's been a lot of updating going on. Those Brazilian Cherry floors probably weren't original, but look fine now. The claw foot tub and shower may be a bit of a throwback, and probably weren't original either; though they could be. Some intelligent design work went into the kitchen remodel, including appliances that fit their niches well. Outside, there isn't much outside. This 1,860 square foot house is sited on a 1,800 square foot lot. The parking is downstairs; so, it doesn't take any extra space. The remaining land is just enough for a strip of lawn, a line of trees, and a brick patio. But, on the 4th and on New Year's Eve, it is the uninterrupted view of fireworks that trumps everything else. If you like that sort of thing then maybe you'll like the $749,000 price, too.
