This is the way to wake up! The east-facing solarium off the master bedroom beckons you to grab a cup of coffee and watch day break while the rest of Seattle sleeps. Come evening, you’ll love hosting dinner parties in the spacious dining room with its wood paneling, built-in china cabinet and box beam ceilings. During winter, relax by the fire in the light-filled living room featuring original J.B. Owens art tile fireplace. And at day’s end, enjoy a nightcap on the newly added private back patio. This is the good life.
There’s so much to love and enjoy about this grand 1910 Montlake Craftsman that’s been lavishly restored, meticulously maintained and thoughtfully updated. A true heart stealer with its original charm preserved plus the advantages of today’s comforts and conveniences. Period details include grand double staircase, original mahogany millwork and inlay floors, vintage lighting and vintage tub in the full bath. The sensational gourmet kitchen featuring Carrara marble surfaces, French apron style sink and Capital gas range plus a new 2-car garage and inviting private rear and side patio are among the home’s many updates.
Nestled among Capitol Hill, the Arboretum and the University of Washington — with easy access to the eastside via the SR 520 Bridge — Seattle’s Montlake has much to offer. Within blocks is the small business district that includes Fuel coffee, Cafe’ Lago, Montlake Pub, antique and bike shops, the Montlake Branch of the Seattle Public Library and Montake Elementary. You’re just in time for the fun at nearby St. Demetrios Church where their annual Greek Festival, coming in early October, offers great food, music, dancing and culture. Nature lovers will adore being steps away from Interlaken Park and the Arboretum to enjoy the gorgeous gardens and hiking trails that go over land and water. Dawg fans and commuters are in for a treat, too. Husky Stadium and the link light rail University of Washington Station are walking distance from this amazing home.
You’re in for a treat…and the good life!
