File this under types of Seattle houses we didn't expect to see too often anymore. A 2-BR log home in North Beacon Hill that just hit the market asking $649K.
According to the listing, it's the first time this place is on the open market since being built in 1985, though you'd swear they meant 1885. The exterior is ponderosa pine while the interiors are refinished hardwoods. The cedar wrap-around deck maintains the woodsy theme.
Don't worry, you're not roughing it inside. Sure there's some rustic elements and wherever wood can be used it seems to have been. But this is no outdated design. The materials have been heightened and blended with more modern appliances and features to give you the best of both worlds.
The master suite is spacious and light, featuring a covered cedar deck of it's own from which you can take in the Cascades view. The bathroom boasts a clawfoot tub because of course it does.
The property's bonus feature is a detached 360 square-foot studio out back, completed with vaulted ceilings, skylight and gas heat. A nice respite to act as a home office, art space or maybe some woodwork. Not that this place needs more wood.
