Walk or bike to the year-round Ballard Farmers’ Market on Sundays to grab local, fresh fruit and produce, pasta, or a homemade pie. Cozy up in front of the fireplace with a cappuccino and your new favorite best seller. Pack a picnic and take in a Zoo Tunes concert or two at Woodland Park Zoo during the summer series. This amazing Craftsman, built in 1926, offers original charm combined with modern amenities. Plus, a super versatile, separate living level in the daylight basement: Guest Quarters? Rental? AirBnB? You decide!
Inviting. Versatile. Happening.
This home is perfection for entertaining, inside and out. Welcome your friends and guests into this charming Craftsman with hardwood floors, coved ceilings, and a beautiful gas fireplace in the living room. With easy flow through the dining room into a thoroughly remodeled kitchen, these three rooms are effortless for small or large gatherings. And to add to the fun, walk onto an expansive deck off the kitchen, west-facing, for superb outdoor fun! Al fresco dining can be yours at a sunny moment’s notice – host an intimate dinner for four or a Thanksgiving feast for twenty.
An entire daylight lower level has been thoughtfully and fully finished with living space (another gas fireplace!), kitchen, bedroom and full bathroom with jetted tub. Guests? Rental? AirBnB? The options are endless, whether to use for yourself on a regular basis or as added income.
The list of why this location is fantastic goes on and on. Walking distance to Woodland Park Zoo and Green Lake – check! Walk or bike to downtown Ballard and all it has to offer: Majestic Bay Theatres, Ballard Market, Sunday Farmers’ Market, not to mention all the amazing restaurants and boutiques – check! A quick commute to downtown via either the Ballard Bridge or I99 – both easily accessible. Public transportation is readily available as well – perfect for getting to the beach or a Seahawks, Mariners or Sounders game in SODO.
A Craftsman at heart, this home offers endless possibilities with all the updates that have been made. A generously sized living room flows to dining room, which leads to a modern kitchen, boasting copious amounts of storage along with a gleaming Bertazzoni gas range and slate floors. Two lovely bedrooms also grace the main level, along with a charming full bathroom – complete with original cast iron tub and built-ins, offering tremendous amounts of storage.
Take the stairs to the upper level and you will be amazed by the master suite awaiting you! Expansive room allows for sleeping quarters plus sitting area, library, nursery . . . . the options are endless. A huge walk in closet with beautiful built-in storage (plus a pull-out Harry Potter-esque access to attic space!) is everyone’s dream: you’ll never have to store your shoes under the bed again! Enjoy an en-suite, ¾ bathroom upstairs as well. The best thing about the second level? Face west to the Olympic Mountains, take in the amazing sunsets and sweeping views of Ballard, Magnolia and Queen Anne simultaneously. You can do all this from inside the light-filled master suite, OR from your private deck through french doors off the master.
There’s more! Marvel at the completely finished lower level, offering windows galore throughout. So many options here: invite out of town guests to stay and they’ll enjoy private quarters. Or, turn the lower level into a separate rental or AirBnB if so desired: your tenants will enjoy gleaming floors, gas fireplace, gorgeous kitchen, bedroom and full bath with jetted tub.
The original garage has been converted into a finished space – perfect for a home office, art studio, yoga or workout room . . . complete with windows and skylight. But don’t worry, there is plenty of space for off-street parking. The driveway is long enough to fit three cars end to end. Or, convert back to a 1 car garage if so desired!
A fully fenced front yard boasts new sod, just laid. Walk to the back along the south side of the house and admire the magnificent fig tree. Multiple levels (grass, deck, and patio) in the back yard create perfect spaces for play, sunning, entertaining, and quiet outdoor enjoyment. All fully fenced for privacy and safety for your little ones or furry friends alike.
Come and experience all this beautiful 1926 Craftsman offers: original charm, modern updates and endless spaces offering options for everyone. All this, in one of the most enviable, in-city locations!
