Those looking for a piece of historic Seattle living without having to deal with all of the updating and renovations that come with an 80-year-old fixer-upper might want to consider the Tudor at 2649 W Boston Street in Magnolia. Asking $980K, it is a love letter to a bygone era that you can actually live in.
The place was originally built in 1931 and they prove this by including a photo from way back when in the listing.
If only that car still came with the place. They've updated the garage door and done some work on the roof to make the triangular roofing above the door stand on it's own. Still, there are plenty of features that haven't changed at all in 85 years.
They include original oak floors with walnut inlay, African mahogany doors and trim, original stained glass windows, and a wood fireplace with the original decorative tiles intact.
The interiors stay quaint instead of going flashy and it speaks to what this house is about, family living. There are four bedrooms, two baths, a large laundry, furnished basement rec room and workshop amongst everything else. Out back, a spacious, fenced backyard with patio island and room for everyone to roam.
Here's to another 85 years for this Magnolia charmer.
