Head out to the land of peaks, foothills, and mountains. Here are five of the most affordable homes in Snoqualmie, which, along with North Bend, makes up part of the fictional town of Twin Peaks.
Squeaking in at just under a half a million—$499,000—is a one-story rambler on one acre from 1975. It is an Americana classic with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,508 square feet inside. Landscaping and hardscaping are well-established, easing that decorating decision making. A great large yard is ready for kids and pets. The kitchen is updated, but retains a period pass-through counter for casual eating with a view of the living room.
A much more current 2003 two-story is complete with dormers and a broad front porch. Sit out front and say hello to the neighbors walking by. The three-bedroom, three-bathroom, 2,020-square-foot house sits on a 3,920-square-foot lot. Head around back for a fenced yard. Go inside to find a large pantry and large closets ready for lots of stuff. Put it all together in a package for $534,950. Say hello to a view of Mt. Si, too.
At $575,000, there’s an even more recent three-bedroom, three-bathroom home. This one has 2,210 square feet on a 5,009-square-foot lot. The extra space outside includes a brick patio and a flagstone sitting area. Built in 2006, the kitchen has granite tile counters and stainless steel appliances. There’s also a shop to go with the two-car garage. Some of the landscaping may be young, as the patchwork front yard suggests. Patience.
Backing up to a greenbelt effectively buys a bit more land, privacy, and entertaining wildlife. $649,900 is the list price for this opportunity, including a 5,900-square-foot lot and a 2,480-square-foot house. It was built in 2004, but refreshingly has something besides stainless steel appliances. These ones are black, alongside black granite counters. Three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a hot tub provide places to relax.
Need something bigger? How about a 2,550 square-foot two story with four bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms? It comes on a 5,662 square-foot lot with lawn and mature trees. The house was built in 1998, almost twenty years ago, and but still after Twin Peaks aired. Now, it is on the market at $663,000. Inside, find touches like vaulted ceilings over the entry and coved ceilings over the formal dining room.
