A covered front porch opens into a welcoming foyer with a conve- nient coat closet and a high, south-facing window. The light-flooded, high-ceilinged, main floor rooms feature original millwork, an open staircase (with two landings and a window), refinished fir floors and big double pane windows, creating an airy and inviting space. All of the finishes, fixtures, cabinets, floors and systems have been redone. A sunny, warm palette with blue-green accents has been deployed.
The large dining room features a a hand-blown glass Artemide Cas- tore suspension light and looks out to a mature stand of black bamboo on one side and has views of the back garden through the open kitchen!
The all-new kitchen has stainless-steel appliances, a tile back splash, hand-crafted Marmoleum floor, and a large window above the sink and counter. Two curving light fixture tracks are designed to supply flexible and abundant light. Off the kitchen are the basement stairs and access to the north side yard.
The other side of the kitchen opens to the laundry room, and new glass sliders open to the covered back porch – with a cedar staircase to the back garden and circular urbanite patio – a private sanctuary surrounded by mature plantings that attracts birds and other pollinators galore!
Back inside, the main floor has the laundry room, and a 3⁄4 bath – with tile floor & backsplash, a floating vanity, open shelving and storage, and a south-facing window. The formal staircase leads to the high-ceilinged 2nd floor with three bedrooms (also with refinished fir floors and modern lighting), a full bath with tile floors and bath surround off the main hall- way, along with a large linen closet.
The partial basement is unfinished and has a separate entrance from the back. The 200 amp electric panel and water heater are housed here, along with shelving and a work bench. This is a delightful home set in a lovely gar- den just blocks away from everything Wallingford has to offer!
Delightfully re-imagined, light-filled and lovely!
Ideally located on a quiet low-traffic street, just blocks from the Burke-Gilman trail; a short jaunt to the hip shops, restaurants, and services in Wallingford and the University District! Bikescore=80 “excellent bike lanes,” easy transit access to UW, South Lake Union, Pioneer Square/stadiums, and the University District Link Light Rail station is scheduled to open next year!
