An excellent opportunity to invest in one of Seattle’s most vibrant neighborhoods, just 2-1/2 blocks from the soon-to-be-completed Link light rail station!

This classic 1910 home was remodeled in the mid-century with period hallmarks such as a sand- stone-faced fireplace and the classic millwork of the era. The full-width covered entry porch is a great place to sit and watch the world go by while being protected from the elements!
Inside, a large L-shaped space functions as an open living & dining room, the two bedrooms and full bath are served by a hallway, and the walk-through galley kitch- en has abundant cabinet and counter space in addition
to a large window over the sink! An addition in the back created a versatile room that could serve as an office, play area, or studio!

The home is close to I-5 and Metro bus lines #73, #373, #62, #64, #67; nearby parks include Green Lake, Cowen Park, and Ravenna Park; Roosevelt Square is just three-and- a-half blocks away and contains a Whole Foods, the commercial district is loaded with a variety of restaurants (including Portage Bay Cafe) and all kinds of shops and services!

Downstairs, there is a lot of potential, with a functional three-quarter bath, laundry area, and furnace & water heater. In the past, the basement was used for living space, in the future, these rooms can be repurposed or the basement excavated to create greater ceiling height!

Outside, the detached garage has power and an electronic door-opener; the 3960-square- foot lot is level and gets great natural light. Zoned LR-1 and part of the Roosevelt Residential Urban Village, there is an opportunity to redevelop the property.
