This exquisite 1916 Laurelhurst Craftsman stands as a testament to timeless Arts and Crafts quality and elegance with its sweeping roofline and welcoming front porch. A freshly painted exterior highlights its striking features and the front porch with its swing and sun shades acts as a second living room. Step through the front door and into a light-filled living space where crisp white walls and warm wood floors greet you. All the classic design elements are here, from the fireplace with its impressive mantle to crown moldings and wainscoting, and the expansive built-in hutch with glass doors. The open concept dining and living area seamlessly flow, offering the perfect setting for intimate gatherings and lively conversations. The kitchen, bathed in natural light, is a chef’s delight, boasting a newer dual fuel range, ample counter space, storage, and a large skylight that illuminates the heart of the home. Adjacent to the kitchen, a mudroom provides a practical transition space, ideal for keeping shoes, coats, and backpacks organized. The main floor hosts three generously sized bedrooms and a full bathroom. Downstairs, in the fully finished basement, you’ll find a spacious family room, a large full bath with a walk-in shower, and a Murphy bed for guests. A laundry room, and plenty of storage complete the lower level. Outside, discover a lush private patio, perfect for alfresco dining and entertaining plus a sunny south side garden area offering an opportunity for the green thumb. Over a century old, but modernized with thoughtful touches including automated blinds, a gas fireplace equipped with temperature control, and a new state-of-the-art heat pump system this home blends classic style with today’s living. A rare find is the solid double car garage equipped with an electric car charger, along with two additional off-street parking spaces via the alley driveway. Near Laurelhurst K-8 School and iconic Laurelhurst Park and on a designated bike path!
