If skinny is better, then this house must be one of the best. Its 2,025 square feet are the result of a story on top of a story on top of a garage. Divide it out and each floor has the potential to be long and skinny. But, that’s one way to squeeze the house onto a 2,500 square foot lot.
The design is modern, from 1998. Simple, minimal, and clean style can last a long time. The materials are modern, of course. The more modern element is the LED light system that is motion sensitive. Wonder around without having to fumble for switches. Check to see if it also responds to kids, large dogs, small dogs, or wayward toys.
There are three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms. The master walk-in closet is equipped with an efficient closet organizer. In the shower are updated fixtures, in pairs, as the space is big enough for two.
Back in the kitchen, stainless steel appliances look at home. Mosaic tile walls maintain a winter color scheme which is offset by the relatively dark wood under-counter cabinetry. To warm the spaces, hardwood flooring pervades everywhere except the bathrooms.
By stacking the floors and extruding the cross section, the architect provided two outdoor spaces: a large covered balcony which sits over a large covered back porch. The extra room outside will be more appreciated and utilized thanks to that overhanging protection.
The package is listed at $1,425,000, which partly reflects the location: Capitol Hill. With Walk Score of 86, there’s a wealth of options nearby, including Light Rail. Maybe you won’t even need the garage and parking spaces for four vehicles. A studio and project space, perhaps?
