Lake Forest Park has always been one of the most tranquil and inviting neighborhoods in Seattle. The area is covered with beautiful greenery and trees, and offers captivating views of Lake Washington from many vantage points. 3725 NE 153rd Street was introduced to Lake Forest Park in 1947 and has been a loving home for its owners. This welcoming duplex is now on the market and the opportunity has arrived for a new buyer to experience the joy of owning it.
The legal duplex is comprised of two units – A (upper) & B (lower). Both units are spacious and offer two bedrooms and a full bath. Mesmerizing territorial and lake views are featured from both homes. Unit A boasts a graciously sized living room with a wood burning fireplace and large picture windows. There is a handy nook that makes the perfect home office or reading area. A large dining room is adjacent and supports a large dinner party as well as a more intimate gathering. The sizable kitchen is just next door with its generous cabinet space, convenient eating area and access to the rear entertainment view deck. Two good sized bedrooms and a full bath finish off this level’s spaces. This unit is vacant and the most recent tenant was paying $1850 per month.
Unit B is similar and offers almost the same amenities as Unit A. This unit has direct access to the shared laundry room which lives in the rear of the home. Easy access makes doing laundry a joy from either home! The access to the rear party patio is located here as well. The current rent for this unit is $1600 per month (the owners give him a $175 break on rent because he keeps the yard and grounds maintained). The current tenant is on a month to month lease and would like to stay if the new owner wishes.
The exterior spaces of the home add valuable livable square footage to the experience of living here. The large upper deck and the lower covered patio offer the perfect spaces to hang out with good friends and enjoy watching the boats float tranquilly by on the lake below. There is also a large yard area – want to plan a few veggies or flowers? Go ahead, there is plenty of room.
Two single car private garages are also featured to keep your car warm and dry or to store extras that you may not want in the home.
