For years, South Park has been a Seattle neighborhood many homebuyers have avoided. Given the current state of the market and the never-ending creep away from Central Seattle in order to find an affordable home, those days are slowly coming to an end. That'll come even quicker if buyers find more hidden gems like this two-bedroom charmer at 9020 12th Avenue S that's asking $300,000.
According to the listing, the 1,380 square-foot home was "totally remodeled in 2004 and then lovingly polished with the touch of an interior decorator for the last decade." That much is evident once you look inside. The blue and white painted walls offset the restored fir floors. The features are simple but it's cool what a some simple furnishing can do to brighten up a space without overwhelming it.
The living room and the lower-level bedroom share a double-sided fireplace. Then walk the painted wood stairs adorned with tiny paintings to the upstairs bedroom which can also be an office space.
Outside, the place includes a large deck for entertaining or sunning while the garden comes complete with a RainWise Rain Garden installed by the City of Seattle. A white fence completes the idyllic picture.
