Michael Ackerman and Hania Younis are thrilled to present their latest listing – a beautifully appointed classic Craftsman in the lovely Queen Anne neighborhood in Seattle.
Grab a cup of morning motivation at Starbucks. Picnic on a lazy Sunday afternoon in lovely David Rogers Park. Pick up fresh ingredients for a sumptuous dinner at Metropolitan Market or Trader Joe’s.
There is a reason that Queen Anne has always been one of the most sought after areas in Seattle. The neighborhood is filled to the brim with exciting restaurants, shops, coffee houses and radiates an incredibly sophisticated urban vibe. 2612 Queen Anne Ave N was introduced to “the hill” in 1925 and has been one of the style anchors ever since. Fresh. Warm. Uplifting.
This enticing home has just hit the market and deserves major bragging rights! It is located at the top of the hill and is kept company by other beautifully maintained vintage and classic homes. It is sited above the street level which provides a soothing feeling of privacy and allows for captivating easterly views from the rear bedroom, kitchen and relaxation deck.
The home has an easy floor plan which was designed for effortless entertaining and allows the energy to flow throughout. The welcoming living room offers warm hardwood flooring and an original tile fireplace gracing the entry area. The remodeled kitchen will make you want to cook even if it isn’t your thing and there is plenty of elbow room for more than one cook. There is a casual dining area featured and access to the rear deck and yard through lovely French doors. The gracious dining room easily accommodates a large dinner party as well as a smaller more intimate gathering. A guest bedroom with en-suite bath completes the main level of the home.
The upper level contains three bedrooms and a tiled full bath. The master bedroom breathes tranquility and offers a beautiful westerly facing wall of windows that let in glorious late afternoon light. Two other bedrooms with territorial views can also be found here. Several walk-in closets are featured. The lower level presents more surprises. The previous owner had this level redesigned as a home office for her design firm. There is a large media room which is perfect for curling up and binge watching your favorite TV series or movie. There is a “flex room” which is currently staged as the fifth bedroom (non-conforming) but could easily be a cozy home office or reading area. There is a one piece European style 3/4 bath, the utility area and even a dark room to satisfy your photography fantasies. Just outside the glass doors you will find a large studio/storage room. This offers abundant space to keep yard equipment, bikes, and anything else you want close by but out of the way. A smaller storage space is also featured at the southeast corner of the exterior of the home.
The rear yard is accessible from the kitchen and lower level and provides the perfect sanctuary to relax and get some fresh air. The large deck offers an enchanting space to unwind while the yard area just beckons for an enjoyable game of croquette. A warning: you may be so enamored with the easterly views of the mountains and surrounding territory that you may not want to ever leave. It is truly rare that you can be so close to the hustle and bustle of the city but feel like you are miles away. Quiet. Peaceful. Soothing.
Walk Score gives this intriguing home a score of 86. You have so much available to you between the Queen Anne Ave shops and Fremont that the word boredom will be stricken from your vocabulary.
Likable. Pleasing. Compelling. Stop in for a visit you will know that love at first sight is indeed real.
