11722 23rd Avenue NE - 12

This mid-century classic has been brought into the 21st-century with a complete upgrade of its systems and a complete re-awakening for the garden level, all the while maintaining its hallmark period architectural details and offering quality living for years to come!

Sited on a large, 9600-square foot lot, this home features clean and efficient radiant H2O baseboard heat, double pane windows throughout, new flooring, updated electrical system, new copper plumbing, Xfinity cable & CenturyLink fiber with CAT 5 wiring throughout, and the original oak hardwood floors are under the carpet and totally refinishable!


Upstairs is a large kitchen with loads of countertops and cabinets, a gas stove and twin ovens, a dining room with greenhouse window, spacious living room with floor-to-ceiling sandstone-fronted wood-burning fireplace (with gas hookup in place) and a floor-to-ceiling storage/display cabinet, sliders to the spacious deck, one bedroom and one two-room suite (bedroom and office, maybe?), and a full bath with twin sinks. The large deck has a hookup for a gas grill, and is a perfect place to enjoy
the wonderful territorial views to St Edwards Park and the Cascades, and enjoy an aviary ranging from bushtits to wrens, merlins and hawks, and even Eagles!

One side of the garden level features a second kitchen, full bath, large closet, and a door leading to the back yard; this half could be used as an excellent rec room or a really nice space for visitors!

The other side has two more bedrooms, a luxurious spa bath (with jetted tub) and a laundry closet with a full-sized washer & dryer plus a convenient folding table and a shelf for extra storage.

Outside, the gently-sloping back yard gets great sunlight even with the mature evergreen trees, and backs to
a quiet cul-de-sac. Home to flowering rhodies, lilacs, forsythia, hydrangea, lily-of-the-valley, Oregon grape, roses, crocus – there a patio, plenty of space for more gardening, or to set aside for play! (Speaking of which, there’s a shed out back which would make a great playhouse) . . .

Located on a quiet street just a short jaunt to everything – easy ac- cess to I-5, Northgate, the upcoming LINK Light Rail station, the University of Washington main campus and UW-Bothell, North Seattle College, parks, golfing at Jackson Park, and the shops on Lake City Way!
