Built in 1910, this thoughtfully renovated Mount Baker craftsman offers views of Lake Washington and the Cascade Range, as well as plenty of space—five bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a finished basement totaling more than 3,100 square feet. What about a pool? It’s got one of those, too. This home is on the market for $1.8 million.

More than a century old, this historic dwelling combines a bit of yesteryear with a whole slew of modern touches. From the street, its dark and light contrasting hues, sizable second-floor patio, and mature trees catch the eye. The front yard is bounded by a horizontal wooden beamed fence, save for a walkway leading to the main entrance.

Inside, the home’s open-concept layout comes into focus. A formal sitting area surrounded by large-paned windows transitions into the less-formal living room and onto the first-floor back patio. The living space abuts a dining room, too—spacious enough for a table that seats at least six—which then flows into the kitchen.

Lined on one side with eastern, water-facing windows and the other with ample clean, white cabinetry and counter space, any cook could make themselves at home in the kitchen. All appliances are stainless steel, including a gas range. The Carrara-marble-topped island has room for four—an ideal spot for entertaining or a quick bite.

The master bedroom and three other rooms are upstairs, and most are complete with lake-adjacent views and high-end touches. Two full bathrooms are also located on the second floor. Below it all is an 850-square-foot finished basement with a fifth bedroom, bathroom, rec space, and direct access to the backyard—including the pool.

Downslope from a landscaped strip of plantings, a pool—in all of its bright blue, rectangular glory—seals this home’s fate as a destination for many future gatherings.
