There is a reason that Laurelhurst has always been one of the most sought after areas in Seattle. The neighborhood is filled with an impressive collection of luxurious homes and radiates an incredibly peaceful vibe. 5018 NE 41st St was introduced to the neighborhood in 1937 and has been one of the style anchors ever since. Compelling. Uplifting. Authentic.
This enticing home has just hit the market and deserves major bragging rights! It is sited well above the street which provides a soothing feeling of privacy and allows for captivating southerly views of Lake Washington and the mountains. There are no power or electrical lines to block even an inch of your comforting view because they are buried under the street – a rarity in Seattle.
The home has a traditional floor plan which was designed for effortless entertaining and allows the energy and light to flow throughout. The formal living room is graciously sized and features a cozy fireplace and large picture windows that frame lovely lake views. The dining room will delight even the most accomplished host with its classic built-ins and easy kitchen access. The well-designed kitchen will surely be one of the most utilized “hang out” spaces of the home. It features a full line of appliances (including a gas range and trash compactor), and a welcoming casual dining nook that is perfect for grabbing a quick meal or having a soothing cup of tea. Next door you will find the media room where you can enjoy binge watching your favorite new Netflix series for as long as you like.
The upper level is designed for maximum relaxation. The romantic master bedroom breathes tranquility and offers south facing windows that let in glorious light an reveal refreshing lake and mountain views. A walk-through closet and 3/4 master bath await. Two good sized bedrooms (one with amazing built-ins), a thoughtful full bath, and a charming den all live here. The den can be used in a variety of ways: home office; reading sanctuary, or nursery – the choice is yours.
The lower level presents more surprises. There is a large family room which is the perfect space to enjoy a good movie or to house guests that may be visiting. Another 3/4 bath, ample storage and a friendly utility/mud room finish off the interior spaces of the home.
The exterior spaces of the home are just as enticing as the interior. The rear yard is accessible from the main and lower levels and provides the perfect sanctuary to relax and get some fresh air. The rear deck offers an enchanting space to unwind or entertain a large party of guests. The yard area just beckons you to stretch out on the lawn and take a lovely nap. A warning: you may be so enamored with the sensational privacy of the lot 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.
A detached two car garage is located conveniently just outside the kitchen door and allows for maximum car security and easy storage. This home is within the Laurelhurst Beach Club boundary map – an exclusive private recreation area only available to homes in Laurelhurst!
Stop in to see this wonderful gem. This just may be “the one” you have been waiting for.
