Michael Ackerman, Hania Younis and Melissa Clark are absolutely thrilled to present their latest listing – an inviting contemporary Craftsman in the tranquil Denny Blaine neighborhood in Seattle. Enjoy a leisurely brunch at the Hi-Spot Cafe on a lazy Saturday. Binge watch your favorite new series in the cozy family room. Take a satisfying bike ride along Lake Washington Boulevard and drink in the captivating lake views.
Denny Blaine has always been a relaxed yet inviting neighborhood. The area is chock full of classic older homes with a few modern gems thrown in for good measure. 3431 E Florence Court was introduced to the neighborhood in 2007, and beautifully mixes these two genres seamlessly. Perhaps you love old world charm but long for the conveniences of a more contemporary home? Well, step right up because your wish just came true. Endearing. Calm. Cheerful.
This thoughtfully designed home has just become available and deserves all the attention it will surely receive. The home offers a wonderfully open floor plan which allows for excellent entertaining possibilities. The formal living room is generous in size, and features large picture windows and a cozy gas fireplace. This is the perfect place to crack open that new novel over a sumptuous cup of tea. The formal dining room is adjacent and will accommodate large as well as smaller gatherings. Custom built-in cabinets flank one end and offer lovely storage, as well as the perfect display platform for your art pieces. The noteworthy kitchen is just next door and serves as the “social hub” of the home (doesn’t it always?). Custom cabinetry, granite counter tops and high end stainless steel appliances (including a built-in Miele espresso machine) await. Your cooking skills will undoubtedly be improved simply by hanging out in this inviting space. A handy kitchen pantry and a guest powder room finish off the interior spaces of this level.
Upstairs you will find a serene master suite with generous walk-in closet, a spa-like master bath (with heated floors), and French doors that lead to a relaxation deck. Two ample guest bedrooms (one with another walk-in closet), a tiled full bath with double sinks and a convenient utility room with laundry sink are all located here. Need a place for all those books you have collected through the years? No problem – there are custom built-in book shelves located on the upper landing just outside the master suite.
The lower level of the home presents a roomy family/media room. Hunker down for the night and enjoy the latest Hollywood blockbuster with good friends. A wet bar, mini-fridge and wine captain are located here as well to add enticement to your movie night. A tranquil guest bedroom allows your visitor to have much valued privacy and easy access to the tiled guest bath with double sinks as well. An invaluable wall of storage closets line the wide hall leading to the attached double car garage. It is so nice to arrive home and know that you have a dry warm space just waiting for your car.
The exterior spaces add greatly to the experience and add extra livable square footage to the home. The large covered rear deck is accessible from the kitchen area, and provides the perfect place to entertain friends while grilling up a fantastic meal. The relaxation deck off the master bedroom is ideal for reading the morning paper and sipping your first latte of the day. The welcoming front porch is just waiting for you to kick your feet up and watch the neighborhood children run past as they play hide and seek. A handy dog-run area is located on the east side of the home so let your new puppy scamper to its heart’s delight. Homey. Friendly. Peaceful.
This home is comfortably sited on a quiet neighborhood street, but is close to all the fun shops and restaurants on 34th Ave in Madrona. Want to go downtown? You will be there in moments. Stop by and experience modern Craftsman love…
