Relax on your spacious west facing deck and enjoy sunsets and city views. Pick up your favorite Italian guilty pleasure from Mioposto for dinner. Go for an invigorating bike ride along Lake Washington Blvd and watch the boats float peacefully by on the water.
There is a reason that Mt Baker has always been a coveted and popular neighborhood in Seattle. The area is filled with a rich mix of classically built homes with some sexy new construction blended in for good measure. 2201 29th Ave South was welcomed to the neighborhood in 1937, and continues to be one of the style anchors for the area. Comfortable. Distinctive. Splendid.
This thoughtfully remodeled home has just come on the market and deserves its time in the spotlight. For those who love the charm of a vintage era home but also appreciate relevant updates for today’s living, this home checks both of those boxes. The home is sited well above the street on a sunny corner lot, allowing for a lovely feeling of privacy—yet with beautiful sunshine spilling in from all sides. The home has a thoughtful open “great room” floor plan designed for effortless entertaining, and allows the energy to flow throughout. The graciously sized living room features sensational oak hardwood floors and an updated, steel-trimmed wood burning fireplace – the perfect spot to crack open that new novel and escape. The dining room area is adjacent and offers plenty of space for a large dinner party gathering or a smaller more intimate grouping. The fully remodeled kitchen will undoubtedly be the social center of the home (isn’t it always?) with its custom cabinets, stainless appliances and inviting design. Two generously sized guest bedrooms and updated tile full bath can also be found on the main level.
The upper level presents a romantic master bedroom with dramatic vaulted ceilings, generous closets, and easy access to the en-suite master bath. There are entrances to this bath from both the master bedroom and from the upper landing hall making this perfect for guests. A second bedroom cradled in the northwest corner of the home lives here as well. Calming views of the city skyline and Mt. Rainier are featured from various windows on this level. But wait, there’s more… The upper landing has a generous open space which is perfect for a home office. The current owner used to work from home and had his desk facing out at the stunning Mt Rainier-view. This flexible space could also be the perfect in-home gym, library, or another social relaxation area – the choice is yours.
The lower level offers a huge family room. Crank up the volume and stream that new Hollywood blockbuster movie – you will feel like you have your own private screening room. The utility area is next door with 3 adjacent storage rooms, as well. The attached one car garage makes life so much easier. It’s a pleasure to be protected from the wet weather when you easily pull into this warm home for you (and your car). There is not only room for your car, but ample space left over to satisfy your storage needs.
The exterior spaces of the home add greatly to the overall experience. French doors off the living room lead to a gracious entertainment deck- you will throw the best parties on the block, indoors and outdoors. The current owners ate dinner out here almost every night in spring, summer and fall so they wouldn’t miss the different sunsets every day. A lovely and inviting large, flat rear yard awaits just beyond. Let little ones frolic and your furry pet romp to its heart’s desire. Quaint and inviting restaurants and shops are consistently popping up all around this neighborhood. Want to hop downtown or commute easily in various directions? Be there in minutes by car or Light Rail. Convenient. Peaceful. Compelling.
Stop in and experience this memorable home. Your search for the perfect “one” may have just ended…
