This beauty embodies the Scandanavian concept of hygge by giving comfort and joy with its clean, bright and versatile living spaces. Exposed beams, hardwood floors and Jøtul woodstove give this immaculately-maintained 1923 bungalow a graceful elegance that warmly embraces you when you walk through the front door. This is the perfect home base for all of your adventures with tons of storage, generous work and shop spaces, and easy access close to everything.
The house lives large with over 2100sf of functional living space on three levels. Additionally, there is a 550+sf two-level, heated studio/shop in the backyard (accessible from both the side street and driveway). Fully-upgraded in 2009, this is an amazing space for immediate use as a studio, home office/business, or guest house above, and a shop/garage/storage below. Solid future potential as an ADU oasis.
The main level features great flow through three open, yet distinct, spaces – formal dining room, living room and a woodstove sitting room, as well as a large kitchen and a tidy, pristine bathroom. The kitchen leads to the lower level through a wide stairway to another living space, as well as two bedrooms, all with garden views, and an updated full bath/laundry room featuring a heated tile floor. The upper level has a bedroom + bonus room – office, yoga room, hobby space – with lots of closet nooks for storage. There are so many storage spaces peppered throughout the house.
It’s ideally-located in a quiet neighborhood on a corner lot with ample space on all four sides. Sunlight is abundant and flows easily into all three levels through newer, efficient, double-paned windows. Mature, low-maintenance, professional landscaping in the front provides year-round beauty and appeal, and the wide (shared) driveway leads to a rebuilt, detached garage and large parking space. You can access the kitchen directly from the back door with groceries, or straight to the basement with muddy clothes from your latest PNW adventure.
The backyard is fully-fenced for furry friends and privacy, with a deck perfect for chilling in the sun and entertaining guests by the grill. All of the systems have been meticulously cared for, with fresh paint throughout much of the main and lower levels.
The neighborhood is perched on a rise with views of downtown a block away, and it’s just a short walk or ride to shops, parks and the 17 and 75 bus lines. The house is a .3 mile walk to Creston Elementary and 1.2 miles to Franklin High School. In addition, Creston and Woodstock Parks are both within .5 mile and it’s just a few blocks to Trader Joe’s, the 42nd Avenue bikeway, and new local fav Coffee Beer.
This home sweet home is waiting for you – don’t miss it!
