Welcome to the elegant mid-century stylings of the Olympic Plaza!
A picturesque and peaceful retreat overlooking Kinnear Park, just minutes from shops, restaurants, and all that Seattle Center has to offer! Wonderfully situated and set back from the street, this well-designed mid-century condo has westerly, treed views of the sound from the living room and deck. The delightful floor plan includes a formal tiled entry, two bedrooms – including a spacious master suite – opening off the hall, windows on three sides of the living spaces insuring great light and maximum cross ventilation.
It has been substantially upgraded with hard surface flooring throughout; laminate floors in the living/dining and bedrooms, tile floors in the kitchen and guest bath, Corian counters in both baths and kitchen, many new light fixtures, fans, bath mirrors and painted in a contemporary color palette!
The open L-shaped living and dining rooms are bathed in light from west- and south-facing double-paned windows with wide tiled window sills. A masonry brick fireplace with a raised hearth anchors the living room. The covered deck is big enough for sunning, a planter garden or for cozy al fresco dining.
The kitchen has been updated with tile backsplashes and has plenty of cup boards, a wood accent wall, black chalk board panel and vintage light fixture.
The master bedroom is very spacious, and has a large wall to wall closet and a full bath – equipped with a large vanity, big mirror with side lights and tiled bath surround. Another large storage closet fitted with shelving is in the central hallway. The “junior” bedroom is generously sized as well, with an entire wall dedicated to built-in shelving and a closet.
The guest bath off the main hall has tile floors, a large vanity with big mirror, and tile shower surround. Also off the hall, at the entry, is a built in full-size washer/dryer nook with built in shelving above and folding counter above. (Note: this is one of the few units in the building to have its own washer & dryer setup, everyone else uses the building’s common laundry room)!
Conveniently, the unit is just a half-flight of stairs from the deeded carport parking space at the back of the building. The formal building entry provides a touch of 1960s “Hollywood” elegance, and it’s just two steps up to the mailbox and elevator. Minimal amenities keep costs and home owner dues low in this well-maintained and professionally-managed association!
