This lovely Craftsman sits on a coveted tree-lined Capitol Hill street, within easy walking distance of Volunteer Park, 15th and 19th Avenue shops and eateries, and both private and public schools, all in a surprisingly quiet setting. Well-manicured landscaping and a rocking chair front porch create an inviting street presence and feeling of “home.”
A formal entry welcomes guests to a circular and nicely flowing floor plan graced with original details including box beam & bead board ceilings, wainscoting, leaded windows, columns, and oak floors. The light-filled eat-in kitchen and adjoining family room have a romantic outlook to Capitol Hill’s canopy of trees with a Cascade Mountain backdrop. A large entertaining deck sits off the kitchen. The upper level has three large bedrooms, including a master with a three-quarter bath; an additional full bath; peek-a-boo views of Lake Washington; and east-facing deck.
The lower level works well for additional living, hobby, play space or easy guest quarters/mother-in-law suite with an additional bedroom, ¾ bath, full kitchen, and common area with French doors as a choice separate entrance. The private and fenced backyard has a level lawn surrounded by gardens and native plantings and access to the large storage area/shop that sits beneath the kitchen deck.
