Michael Ackerman and Hania Younis are so happy to present their latest listing – a sweet and inviting classic bungalow in the vibrant Ballard neighborhood in Seattle.
Pop over to Makeda for a yummy espresso drink or to Chuck’s Hop Shop for a local brew. Spend some time lounging on one of two sun porches soaking in the afternoon sun and the latest bestselling novel. Throw a wonderful dinner party with guests moving effortlessly between the house and the lovely backyard.
This classic bungalow is bursting with both old world charm and modern updates. It has a wonderful open floor plan with generously sized living and dining rooms. The updated built-ins in the dining room give it a cozy feeling while also providing lots of space for storage and displaying art pieces. There are two gorgeous, enclosed sun rooms – one off the living room and one off the master bedroom – that provide the perfect spots for reading, lounging, playing, working or doing art or yoga.
The house has two generously sized bedrooms, each with its own walk-in closet. The master bedroom has an en-suite and there’s another full bathroom that serves the second bedroom and guests. The kitchen has a generous footprint that would easily allow for a sizable island without feeling cramped or impeding the flow through the house.
The lot is another amazing aspect of this home. The front yard is open and welcoming, setting the home back from the street and also presents ample opportunity for creativity. The fully fenced back yard is generous and provides lots of space for barbecuing, play and gardening. The structure in the backyard could used as a jungle gym or turned into an attractive chicken coop. And the fruit trees provide for casual nibbling during parties or the stuff of great jams or pies on more ambitious culinary days.
Last but not least is the amazing neighborhood. The neighbors are friendly and there are regular block parties. There are many coffee shops and restaurants within a short walking distance and, of course, Ballard and all it has to offer, with its multitude of coffee shops, restaurants, shops, the Majestic Bay Theater, the Ballard farmer’s market and more, more, more are all nearby.
Come see (and own!) your little slice of the sweet life in Ballard!
