Savor a glass of wine during the warm, summer evenings on the private patio. Surrounded by blooming flowers, a large strawberry patch (planted in 2019) and many fruit trees! There are two plum trees, eight apple trees (of three varieties), two pear and two cherry trees that all produce. Enjoy canning the fruit or eating it right from the tree. Rest assured that the current owners have never used chemicals or pesticides on the edible garden and other plants throughout the yard.

As you enter through the front door, the light-filled living room on the main level welcomes you into the home. The original oak floors were refinished and the high-efficiency gas fireplace was added. In addition the interior upgrades, the full renovation in 2016 included: siding, electrical, plumbing, insulation, roof, HVAC, drywall, kitchen, wet bar, bathrooms, and laundry. 100% of these items were replaced with new high-end fixtures.

The kitchen features marble countertops, high-efficiency black stainless steel appliances, solid wood cabinetry, plus thoughtful organizational systems. Soak in the natural light in the dining nook to the left of the kitchen. Double pane high efficiency fiberglass windows were installed throughout the home. Fiberglass windows were specifically chosen so black trim could show on the exterior while the white remained inside.

The primary bedroom on the main level overlooks the fruit trees and backyard. The custom blackout blinds and custom built-in closet organization stay with the home. To the left of the bedroom is the full, spa-like bathroom. Complete with heated floors,  walk-in shower with two body sprayers and a rain head, plus a luxurious freestanding bathtub. The newly installed (2019) tankless gas water heater ensures you’ll never run out of hot water.

Down the stairs is the lower level of the home. The three steel beams replaced the original posts to open up the entire basement. The lower level is large enough for a bonus room, second dining room area, playroom or at-home gym in addition to the third bedroom and ¾ bathroom.  French doors open you to the third bedroom (with private entry) and a huge walk-in closet- perfect for guests or use as a MIL suite.

The property is conveniently located two miles away from the Southworth Ferry dock. Depart via Southworth’s Fast Ferry and arrive in Downtown Seattle in 26 minutes. Launch your own boat and water toys at the nearby Manchester boat ramp. Plus, you’re only blocks away from beach access and Banner Park.
