Michael Ackerman and Hania Younis are so excited to present their latest listing – an inviting classic beauty on the top of the lovely Queen Anne neighborhood in Seattle.
Go for an invigorating run around the top of Queen Anne and enjoy lovely views of Mt Rainier, the Space Needle and Puget Sound. Open the glass wall between the beautifully remodeled kitchen and the view deck to virtually bring the outdoors inside. Pick up fresh ingredients for a sumptuous dinner at Queen Anne Farmer’s Market.
There is a reason Queen Anne has always been a magnet for energy, vitality and fun. The neighborhood is filled to the brim with exciting restaurants, shops, coffee houses and parks. 2550 1st Ave N was introduced to the hill in 1923 and complements the classic style of homes that dot this welcoming neighborhood. Noteworthy. Uplifting. Warm.
This inviting residence has just become available, and some new owner will be lucky enough to call it home. The home is sited on the crested top of the hill, allowing for lovely light and easterly views of the Cascade mountains and surrounding territory. The floor plan is thoughtful and invites the radiant energy (and your guests) to flow throughout effortlessly. The formal living room is a gracious size and features stunning hardwood floors and a cozy wood burning fireplace. The adjacent dining room accommodates large dinner parties and small, intimate gatherings.
The kitchen and family room are truly the heart of the home. The owners have lovingly remodeled this area and have created a captivating space that is equally beautiful in its design and functionality. The kitchen is a serious cook’s dream – pull off gourmet meals to your heart’s content! A gratifying eating nook is featured and is flanked by a glass wall that fully retracts to reveal the entertainment deck and comforting views. Let the sun and the fresh breezes fill the home! The welcoming family room is just next door and is the perfect spot to curl up with a good book or to binge watch your favorite Netflix series. The gas fireplace will keep you toasty even on the coldest nights. A large bedroom with en-suite full bath can also be found here. This bedroom can be used for a guest bedroom, home office or master suite – the choice is yours! Central A/C cools this level to keep you comfortable even on the warmest days.
The upper level of the home holds more delights. Here you will find an open “flex space” area which can be used as another study/den, reading room or play area. A romantic bedroom with wonderful easterly views (perfect for an upstairs master bedroom), a remodeled 3/4 bath and a dynamic third bedroom awaits. This whimsical and alluring room features vaulted ceilings, skylights and an intriguing loft space – a delight!
The lower level contains two flexible spaces that could be used for an exercise room, children’s playroom, or additional storage. The utility area is located here, as well as access to the attached one-car garage. It is so convenient to get out of your car with groceries and not get wet during those rainy months! The On-Demand hot water heater can be found here too, so you will never run out of hot water when you need it.
The exterior spaces of the home are equally satisfying. The retractable kitchen glass wall opens to a lovely entertainment deck with inspiring views of the Cascades, Mount Baker, and neighboring territory. Just below you will find a picturesque brick patio area with a soothing water feature – the perfect zen space. The front of the home offers a compelling patio/garden area with another refreshing water feature.
Walk Score gives this home an exciting score of 80. There is so much to do just moments away that the word boredom will be stricken from your vocabulary. You are oh so close to Fremont and downtown as well. It is rare to be so close to fun and enticing restaurants, shops and coffee houses but to feel like you are miles away from the fray. Quiet. Peaceful. Comfortable.
Stop in for a visit and see what all the fuss is about. Whoever said money can’t buy happiness has never been to this home.
