Three bedrooms and a park

Tucked away in the trees but still a quick bus ride to downtown is this 1918 three-bedroom Leschi home, which offers plenty of space with some of the cozy comforts of a cabin.

Located down a relatively long driveway for inside the city, home itself is surrounded by a large, irregular lot full ferns and trees, the perfect border to the densely wooded Frink Park.

Not ready to pull on your boots? A sunroom and a large deck let you take in your surroundings without all the pine needles.

Inside, brick accents and wood grain trim mirror the natural setting surrounding the home. A cast iron stove and fir floors in the living room complete the look.

The wood grain and hardwood floors continue throughout the home, adding period details: clawfoot tubs, cozy built-in nooks,

While the design elements on the lower floor give the home an air of a cabin getaway, with 1,842 square feet and three bedrooms inside the home, it doesn’t sacrifice anything to feel that way.

An ADU upstairs is ready for short-term rentals to anyone who wants to truly experience the greenery of the Emerald City—or to just be a getaway from your getaway.

This woodland home with all the city amenities—plus another home above—is listed at $725,000.
