Tudor Revival

08/13/2016

When I first started my real estate practice and throughout the early 1990’s, I sometimes sold homes still owned by the original owners, owners who had lived in one place for forty or fifty years or sixty years. I always thought the buyers of these homes were lucky to get to become part of such a home’s history, that a special worth was conferred. Generational home improvement stories, valuable for their lode of structural information, usually also include local lore and history; the home itself becomes a notable part of the fabric of Seattle along with its chain of ownership.

It is rare to find such long-held homes for sale anymore, especially in our inventory-deprived market. But this week I listed this Tudor Revival-style home in Montlake owned by the same family since the 1940’s. An heirloom!

exterior 1

 

Remarkably, almost every original architectural detail is intact: oak floors throughout, upstairs and down, hand-patterend plaster, coved ceilings, arched doorways, doorknobs, light fixtures, leaded glass windows, and Batchelder tile fireplace.

The rooms are flooded with light and feel magical.

living room 6

 

Imagine the kitchen however you want; the space is terrific, with butler’s pantry and many built-in cupboards.

Upstairs find two large bedrooms, more built-ins in both. The master bedroom has a sitting room within it.

bedroom 1a

 

Unfinished basement has lots of possibilities and an attached garage.

back yard 1

 

Located on a storybook lane of Tudors, this sweet home has had just three families reside in it since it was built, according to Seattle’s Department of Neighborhoods.  Now’s time for a new owner to become part of its history.

1941 East Blaine Street, Montlake, Seattle. Offered at $775,000. Built in 1926. Two bedrooms, one and one-half baths. 2300 interior feet on a 3281 square foot lot. Basement garage with alley access. Live on one of the most desirable blocks in Montlake!

Join me for an open house tomorrow, Sunday, August 14th, from 1 to 4 p.m.

Required from the Rooftops

02/09/2016

One way to get a view in West Seattle is to get up high!

IMG_3299 (1)

I’ve been noticing lately that roof top decks have become de rigueur in new construction townhomes throughout Seattle. They provide outside space which is more and more at a premium, and, sometimes, they provide views all around.

Bright Blue

01/01/2016

Thank you for stepping into the new year along with me. I have it on good authority that it is going to be sweet, easy to believe when the brightest, most hopeful day of all actually is bright, with blue skies from dawn to dusk. Magnificent!

2016, you’re looking very fine from here.
