This well-cared-for home welcomes you via an enclosed porch with beautiful leaded glass windows and paneled in rustic knotty pine! The porch opens to the high-ceilinged living room with many windows, including two of colorful stained-glass, adding cheer – and changing reflections with the light. A formal staircase leads to the upstairs landing with built-in storage and two high ceilinged bedrooms on either side.
New carpet, paint, kitchen counters, range, and Marmoleum™ floors were just installed in a warm and sunny palette creating continuity throughout. The large kitchen opens to the dining room, and has many naturally-finished fir cabinets, a gas stove, lots of counter space, and a peninsula – which provides more space for food prep or to entertain guests. There’s an entry door that opens to the north side, and the kitchen also opens to the laundry and mechanical room.
East of the dining room is a large, bright “bonus” room, spanning the width of the house, with a high vaulted ceiling that’s flooded with light from windows on three sides, and a glass slider that opens to the side yard. This room could be converted to a third bedroom or be used as a family room, larger dining area, studio or office space!
The yard is fully fenced, and out back is a detached structure with two semi-finished rooms, equipped with electricity and water, and ideal for use as a workshop, studio space, or for extra storage.
There are also two sheds on the property that go with the house, one in back and one in front. The mature garden has many established shrubs, perennials and trees providing privacy and pleasant green and flowering outlooks! The bamboo in pots, Japanese maple in the barrel and flowering currant in a pot by the front shed all stay with the house.
Recent upgrades include a newer roof, gutters, sewer line and many double-paned windows. The furnace and water heater are gas-fired.
This quiet neighborhood, with little car traffic, is great for walking – there are sidewalks and city views to be enjoyed, and there are two staircases at the west and east side of the neighborhood; one at Andover and 21st SW connecting to Delridge and one the east side at Charleston and 19th connecting to 18th Ave SW, where you might also spy herons roosting in the trees!
