Palatial 1916 foursquare in Mt. Baker listed for $1.67M

Imagine the dinner parties

An imposing, green, two-story house with a large front portico Windermere

This 1916 foursquare is like a real-life dollhouse, with picturesque, historic details and a room for every purpose. It’s also, clearly, much bigger, at an expansive 4,820 feet. Being two blocks from Lake Washington means even more room to play.

On the ground floor, common areas cascade into one another, separated by airy French doors. Each room features large, leaded glass windows—often floor-to-ceiling, opening in the center like miniature doors—that serve as both artistic accents, but with hedges outside for both greenery and privacy.

Stained glass windows welcome you to the second floor. The airy, light-drenched layout continues into the bedrooms. The master even features a sunroom—separated from the bedroom by, of course, French doors—with Lake Washington views.

No need to fight over the master though: Another bedroom on the northeast corner, accessible by two different stairwells, has fun extras of its own. In addition to its own sink, it features a fun historic detail: a laundry chute that goes directly to the basement.

A concrete garage with a parapet like design on top

A concrete garage—also period, with parapet-like details—provides space for either two cars or a car and a workshop.

This already roomy home with an unfinished basement for anything else you can dream up is listed for $1.67 million.
