Michael Ackerman, Hania Younis and Melissa Clark are so thrilled to present their latest listing – an invitingly charming Craftsman on the very top of lovely Queen Anne Hill in Seattle.
Grab your favorite guilty pleasure at Macrina Bakery – you deserve it! Go for an invigorating run around the top of Queen Anne and enjoy lovely views of Mt Rainier, the Space Needle and Puget Sound. Relax on your rear entertainment deck and listen to the birds chirp as you sip your morning coffee.
There is a reason that Queen Anne has always been a source of energy, vitality and fun. The neighborhood is chock full of exciting restaurants, shops, coffee houses and parks. 164 Galer Street was introduced to the hill in 1918 and has been one of the charming classic homes that fill this neighborhood. Distinctive. Warm. Crafted.
This compelling Craftsman home has just come on the market and deserves its time in the spotlight. The home is sited on a lovely street smack dab on the top of Queen Anne Hill. The front of the home faces south allowing comforting sun-dappled light to fill its interior. The home also offers a thoughtful circular floor plan which was designed for effortless entertaining, and allows the energy to flow throughout. The graciously sized living room features refinished oak hardwood floors as well as a cozy wood burning fireplace- the perfect spot to crack open that new novel and escape. The ample dining room is adjacent offering plenty of room for a large dinner party gathering or a smaller more intimate group as well. A lovely glass sliding door allows easy access to the covered rear entertainment deck. The well designed kitchen will undoubtedly be the social center of the home (isn’t it always?) with its crisp white cabinets, stainless appliances and inviting eating nook. A handy guest powder room can also be found on the main level.
The upper level presents a private master bedroom with direct access to a pleasing relaxation deck. Sip your morning coffee, grab the newspaper and start your day right from this charming perch. Two more good sized bedrooms live here as well. A remodeled vintage-style tiled full bath with cheery skylight completes the spaces on this level of the home.
But wait, there’s more… The lower level contains a cozy family/media room – binge watch your latest Netflix obsession with good friends. Adjacent is another bedroom (non-conforming) that makes the guest hideaway or home office. The choice is yours. A large tiled guest bath, the utility area, ample storage and the gas furnace/gas water heater are all located here as well. Noteworthy. Enchanting. Warm.
This home also offers some intriguing outdoor spaces that elevate your living experience of the home. The outdoors seamlessly connect with the indoors through the dining room sliding doors to the rear deck. The rear covered entertainment deck is the perfect spot to barbecue a sumptuous dinner no matter what the season. Get ready to throw the best summer parties on the block! The fenced private rear yard will be your in-city sanctuary with its fruit trees, lovely lawn and abundant gardening space. It is rare to find a tranquil space that is convenient to fun commercial shops and restaurants but feels like you are miles from the hustle and bustle of the city. The front porch provides the ideal place to sit and relax while you enjoy the front garden views. A sweet front patio area with soothing water fountain feature can also be found here. A convenient off street parking pad for up to two cars flanks the west side of the home.
Walk Score rates this home at a 90! There is so much to do just outside your door that you may park your car on a Friday evening and not touch it until Monday morning!
