Gorgeous 1908 Wallingford Craftsman home retains its authentic period details and charm!
From the high ceilings and leaded-glass windows to the beautiful box-beamed ceilings in the dining room, this Wallingford home is filled with the warmth and character that you can only find in a classic “old-world” style house!
It begins with a covered entry porch and a formal entry, with enough room for a putting on coats and taking off shoes before coming into the spacious living room, which features a big picture window with a full-length window seat (how charming is that?). Oak hardwood floors run through the formal living areas, and a wide, square-arched transition with pedestal open to the large formal dining room.
A central gallery hallway serves the two bedrooms and full upstairs bath. The front bedroom has a double-sized closet and an alcove that provides ample space for an armoire; the back bedroom overlooks the yard and, as it was used as an office and guest room, is equipped with a custom wallbed! Beautiful fir floors line this part of the home and the kitchen.
Speaking of which: the kitchen has been updated with newer appliances including a five-burner gas stove, hard-surface countertops, contemporary-styled lighted ceiling fan, a dishwasher has been installed and there’s a walk-in daylight pantry; the two butcher-block tables stay with the house. Conveniently, there’s a door that opens to the deck and back yard, which is screened and sheltered by the trees.
Downstairs is full of potential, the basement currently holds the media room (“third bedroom,” non-conforming), a new beautifully-tiled full bathroom, laundry room, and plenty of dry storage. The basement has been professionally waterproofed, and a new high-efficiency gas furnace has been installed.
Perfectly located between Wallingford and Tangletown shops and restaurants, close to Green Lake & Woodland Park (tennis courts, pitch & putt golf), easy access to Aurora & I-5, University of Washington, South Lake Union, a short jaunt to Gas Works Park and the Burke-Gilman Trail, and a ten-minute drive to all that Fremont, Ballard, and Phinney Ridge have to offer! Catch the Metro #16 on Meridian Ave N to Northgate and the International District!.
