It’s nice to see a nice, round number with lots of zeroes for a price, $1,000,000. In this market, what are the chances that the check will look so simple?
Fresh from an architect-directed remodel, this 1911 house with 2,974 square feet has the feel of its origins with the comforts of today. With a fireplace as a focal point and a tasteful red trim around the ceiling, the living room may not look much different than when it was new - without the high-tech lighting or high-efficiency windows, though.
Stainless steel appliances and granite counters have become the norm, though this kitchen makes the combination look like something out of a sales catalog because they all blend so well with the light wood cabinetry.
Five bedroom and two and three-quarter bathrooms help fill the tall, peaked two story. Upstairs rooms may have a notch or two intruding into the space, but with such a steep slope the impact is more visual than physical. Fewer bumps and ouches.
One modern addition is a skylight into an office and library space. A nice way to get natural light into the room, and to get a simple check on the weather.
Outside is a fair-sized front porch, a brightly painted backyard shed, and some brick patio and workspaces that help will in the 4,590 square foot lot. A little bit of lawn is surrounded by ornamental gardens.
An attractive package at a simple price. A house to watch in Seattle’s hot market.
