Looking for a 4 bedroom 1.75 bath (that extra bath has a shower but no tub) in West Seattle near S Seattle Community College for under $300,000?  This is one of your better choices, and we (as buyers agents) feel that the price might be a bit negotiable so don’t hesitate to try and see.  This home is charming and has great updates including a kitchen, potential for another upstairs bedroom by dividing the oversize living room (still will keep a living room, dining room, informal dining room on other side of kitchen light and bright overlooking back yard, as well as another all-purpose family room besides the two bedrooms and utility room on the lower level)!  We suggest you seriously consider this one, it’s very nice.  We took Nana to see it Sunday and this was the one she liked the best, she told us.

 

we are standing on the sidewalk looking at the gate into the front yard

Peeking at the front of the house from the gate.

Front steps and front porch of the home… a true character house, one of the popular styles in Seattle, this is what’s known as a Craftsman Bungalow style.

Front yard to left of steps.

Front yard to right of gate.

Front yard to right of steps.

Going up steps to front door.

Looking into front door, living room, dining room beyond, and can see door into kitchen.

Standing at front door looking left, there is another part of living room. This could be easily made into a nice bedroom with windows on two sides that would make it a five bedroom home. Or leave it like this for a roomy common area living room if preferred.

Standing in living room, dining room chandaler is front, on the right is door to kitchen and on the left is door to hallway with bathroom and one bedroom.

Looking back at the other part of the living room which could easily become a bedroom if you need a 5th bedroom (just add 1 wall with door, and a closet in the room, a simple addition which will be done in 2-3 days).

Another view of living room (standing in part that is shown in last photo, which is like the 2nd part of living room).

Dining room area.

Looking through door from dining room into hallway… bathroom straight ahead, bedroom to right.

Peeking from bedroom door into bedroom… hardwood floors, closet.

Entering kitchen (left of doorway).

Looking at hardwood floor in kitchen.

Looking to the right in kitchen is granite counter tops, double sink with high design faucet, and a “garden window” which allows growing plants or herbs and allows more light into the room.

This shows the back corner beyond the kitchen, which is ready for a dining table and chairs. over to the left can be seen the door to the back yard (steps going down to back yard). If you continue left there will be another bedroom, and stairs leading to the lower level.

Looking out that side window to the right in the informal dining area.

Looking out the back window in the informal dining area. You can see a pickup truck parked there… that belongs to the current owner and obviously will be gone once the house is purchased. 4 cars could be parked there or it could be changed to grass for a lawn. To the right can be see a garden shed and the garage (detached).

Now we are standing by those windows and looking back into the kitchen.

Now we are standing in the informal dining area and looking at the bedroom door and on the left, the door to the stairs leading to the lower level.

Have opened the back door and am standing at head of stairs leading down to back yard… can see paved driveway area.

Showing back steps and hand rail.

Standing on the back porch looking down at the stairs to the lower level back door.

Now looking at eye level while standing on pack porch, over to roof of the overhand and then you can see the neighbor’s yard in the distance.

And this is looking at the neighbor in back, across the lane. (These private lanes that go between the backyards of two streets are very useful when you have one!)

This shows the storage/garden shed at back of garage, and you can see the garage roof beyond that.

Still standing on back porch and now looking to right, there is a pebble corner with outdoor table and chairs, a wonderful place to enjoy the ourdoors and maybe barbeque in warm weather.

This is just a photo looking directly down on the steps from back yard to that lower level back door.

Now going back inside informal dining area.

Standing in dining area looking at staircase to lower level.

We are halfway down the stairs. It is hard to see detail because everything is covered in cream-colored carpet so it blends together a little bit.

The bonus room, a good play or Media Room with two windows (note all windows are the new vinyl windows which help with the heat costs and keep moisture out best).

Looking toward first downstairs bedroom door.

Inside bedroom… double closets.

Standing in bedroom looking back out to main family room (lower level).

Shows window of bedroom.

Standing in door of bedroom looking across that family room toward the other bedroom.

Here is the second house we saw on the first day. This home is a “split level” and had 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It was built in 2008. It is on a smaller lot than the first one and has no usable back yard. The ceilings on the upper level are vaulted, there is a fireplace, and the master suite is very large. There is also a nice recreation extra room in the lower level.

Hello World! This 4 bedroom 2 bath home in West Seattle was built in 1945 and has been redone carefully and with beautiful finishes such as hardwood, granite, beams, and a wonderful master suite As well as lovely finishes, this home has an exceptional back yard and large lot, making it a good candidate for investment as larger lots will hold value and appreciate more than smaller lots. The location is extremely close and convenient to South Seattle Community College. I have put this home photo tour up for the convenience of our clients who needed to see more photos and get a better idea of the floor plan. Sorry for any flaws in the photos as they were taken almost after dark and the light is not so great. But the home really shows up!
