Have you ever walked, biked, drove past a house a million times on your way to work and thought to yourself “I wonder what that house looks like inside?”. As soon as you see a for sale in the yard, you immediate make a b-line to the colorful flyer hoping to find a price, just out of curiosity of course.
I had one of those today. This really cool, perfect starter home in Green Lake has been on the market just a short time which is on my way to Duke’s Chowder House one block southwest. I’m very smitten of the beautiful fir tree in front for privacy, convenient alley, and an acutely maintained yard.
Once I walked up to the welcome mat, the house is better than I imagined. Clean, mid-century lines, updated kitchen with eating nook, two bedrooms + full bath up and a completely refurbished lower living space including a cozy fireplace around the oversized sofa, another bathroom and extra storage. The soft carpet under my feet compliment the twist of a modern edge throughout the home. It’s a nice touch of the old and the new – which translates Green Lake homes to a “T”.
Great home, great price – under $500,000 – and close to everything in east Green Lake. You can walk your kids to Daniel Bagley Elementary (Montesory to 5th grade) on 80th Street, get some amazing Pho Vietnamese soup, or just kick it at Green Lake park in the wadding pool. Perhaps you’re in need of a 3 mile jog with your dog. If you do, grab a beer on the outside deck at Duke’s Chowder House on your way home to this totally efficient Green Lake home.
Will you be impressed as much as I was? Give me a ring or email and I’d be happy to show you the thoughtfullness of this home and why I think it’s such a great deal.
Oh how I do love Green Lake and the appeal it has over me. I’m a runner, so I want to say thank you for giving me flat trails to run until my heart’s content. But no thank you when I get low times in races with hills.
On a more serious note, Green Lake has tons to offer – we know this, right (?) or else you wouldn’t be reading about this awesome Seattle neighborhood. It has the schools, the park, the location, the water, the views, the new architecture, the old architecture, the history, libraries, pizza joints, amazing schools, and yes Starbucks.
