Thursday Tour Through The Rain

It has been a couple of weeks since I have toured on a Thursday; I had fallen a little behind, so today I went with my regular touring colleague who had a dark mood to match our dark skies (raining again, geez already). And, just like with the bad weather, all I could do was laugh. But we did cover some miles and saw quite a few new listings from Capitol Hill and Montlake to Madrona and Leschi. Enlightening!

This one, across from Holy Names Academy on Capitol Hill was my favorite of the day. The last time it was remodeled was definitely the sixties, or maybe the early seventies since Seattle was a little behind the trends back then. So much gold shag carpet…

But the kitchen was the real period piece.

Great space, though, with a glassed-in back porch overlooking the pretty backyard.

The best feature of all was the wallpapered ceilings in some of the rooms.

Clearly, this little Victorian cottage is in need of a re-do, and at $450,00 is totally worth undertaking, especially for someone who wants to live in this high-demand neighborhood. I loved it! On the market for only the second time since it was built in 1905, the previous owners had lived in the home since 1917.

Pretty sweet, right?
