Buyer’s Market?


It is known in my profession that as soon as you write an offer on a property that has been languishing on the market, there is a good chance someone else will all also write an offer on that property. To compete with yours. It’s an energy thing. And it’s annoying.

After six months of market time, this Wallingford listing sold today to another buyer, not my own, who apparently didn’t mind paying asking price.

It happens.

Ravishingly Reconstructed


The belle of the ball yesterday on our Monday morning tour was this Wallingford Craftsman. Everyone said so. And you can see why the moment you step onto its pretty and  perfect porch. All the 1920 Craftsmen details are exquisite.

Once inside, you are bowled over by the ingenious blend of old style with new and lavish surfaces and fixtures.

The kitchen and baths are particularly pleasing to the modern aesthetic.

The owners raised the roof in order to accommodate a master suite that comprises the entire second floor and includes a charming deck with downtown skyline views

Even the lower level is a testament to the beauty of details and can be a living suite unto itself with two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a luxurious lounging or media room.Just listed yesterday, this beauty unsurprisingly already has an offer on it. If you hurry, though, you can have a look at it before it leaves the market; open tomorrow, Wednesday, September 22 from 12-2 p.m. It might be your only chance!

4018 2nd Ave NE, Seattle 98105. Five bedrooms, three baths, 2910 interior square feet on a 4000 square foot lot. Offstreet parking for three cars. Asking price $839,000. For more info and photos, click here and see every elegant element. Glorious!

Wonderfully Woody On Woodlawn


When you live in the middle of a city, it’s an anomaly to look out the windows of your home and see only trees, landscape, cityscape, and sky.

At this new listing in Wallingford you have a sense of privacy that can be illusive in a dense neighborhood such as this one. But when you look out the windows of this particular 1924 Bungalow, all you will see see is greenery.

Unless, while brushing your teeth perhaps, you are looking out your upstairs bathroom window. In which case, the territorial view out over the treetops and the rooftops is splendid. Also, the master bedroom has downtown views that you’ll really want to check out for yourself.

The interior spaces are lovely, too. And filled with light.

This is special.

3819 Woodlawn Ave N, Seattle 98103-8250. Four bedrooms, three bathrooms. 2630 square foot interior on a 3420 square foot lot. Asking price $649,000. Open Sunday 1-4 p.m. For more info and additional photos, click here.
