EXPLORE THE HOME
The first thing that hits you when you approach 726 North 102nd Street is the striking street appeal. The entire exterior, professionally painted in 2018 is a beautiful deep blue, accented with white trim and a sunny, cheerful yellow door! The front yard greets you with lawn, mature greenery, and a welcoming front porch. Enjoy plenty of off-street parking with the ample driveway and gravel area in front as well.
Enter to a spacious living room with gleaming engineered hardwood floors, and both southern and eastern exposure for plenty of natural light. Appreciate the wood burning fireplace with handsome mantel – the perfect space to hang out with friends or just cozy up with your favorite novel and a glass of wine.
A circular floorplan that includes sun porch, dining space and kitchen awaits – perfect for both entertaining and day-to-day living. The sun porch is the recipient of brand new carpeting and allows for many options: dining room, reading library, or the perfect work-from-home space if needed or desired. Move on into another ample eating area off the kitchen – again, bright and light with three exposures: south, east and north! This space is tiled for easy care (just professionally steam cleaned) and flows graciously into the updated kitchen. Enjoy copious amounts of mahogany cabinetry and storage space, handsome granite tiled countertops and stainless steel appliances (including a brand new fridge!)
Two bedrooms, adjoined by a full bathroom, round out this well-sized main level. Both bedrooms enjoy western exposure (the front room southern as well!) and are accessed off of the living room. The full bath here has been updated and in October of this year also received a brand new tub re-glazing along with new shower surround. Lovely and bright!
Another delightful space on this main level before we head downstairs is a great “staging” space off of the kitchen, leading to the back yard. This area has brand new linoleum installed and provides extensive storage and also is a perfect place for buffets as your guests make their way outdoors to the summer barbecues you can plan! Or, if it better suits you, it is also plumbed for washer and dryer if you prefer to have that on the first floor. So many options!
Let’s head downstairs for additional space . . . . the lower level greets you, first of all, with ample ceiling height (a rare find in early 1920s homes!) and a laundry area – nice and open with daylight windows to the back yard. Full size washer and dryer, plus a sink make for pleasant laundry chores. More spaces await you beyond! Another full bathroom (the same upgrades were just applied here as upstairs) along with an expansive bonus room AND another bedroom are on this level, offering many uses. The bonus room has original pine paneling for charm and warmth and could be used as a family room, play room, media room or a combination of all the above. Another room off this area (with brand new carpeting!) offers a third bedroom if desired or an extension of the main bonus space.
Completing this level is the furnace room (which, by the way, houses a brand new, high-efficiency gas furnace!) and a previous 1 car garage which is amazing for storage!
EXPLORE THE OUTSIDE
My goodness! The outdoor areas at this charming bungalow are extensive and the best part is . . . . the expansive back yard is fully fenced! Whether you have grown up friends, littles of your own or furry friends, this back yard is the best and full of opportunities. Currently there is a combination of lawn and hard-scaped spaces but the options are endless – Large deck? Raised planting beds? Dog run? Play structure? You decide. The front yard also houses a magnificent, mature magnolia tree . . . Northwest beauty surrounds the whole house!
