New: New Listing Near the Arboretum Is a Seattle Dream

Posted on Oct 5, 2017

Here’s a nerdy confession: one of my favorite ways to relax is to sit down with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and drool over home design makeovers. I love to read about how people buy homes and make them their own with just a bit of design smarts, such as this inspiring example on Cup of Jo. As such, I am thrilled to talk about Pickett Street’s newest listing today, and am both jealous of and excited for the lucky homebuyer who snags this property.

The Listing

While searching for your dream home can sometimes be discouraging, there also comes the time when, by some miracle, you find the perfect spot. Just four blocks from the Arboretum, this four-bedroom, three-bathroom historic home was built in 1904 and is oozing with charm. Highlights include a spiral staircase, a fully finished daylight basement with a cozy wood stove, crafted cabinetry, a jetted tub in the master bathroom, and the unbeatable location.

The best part about this property is that, at a spacious 4,000 square feet, with two levels and the finished basement, the property is begging to be customized to fit your style and needs. The basement’s private two bedrooms are perfect for guest rooms, home offices, or even, if you’d like to make a little extra cash, renters. The detached garage has plenty of space for covered parking or for a shop or work studio. Investing in this property is truly the perfect opportunity to create your dream home in the heart of Seattle.

The Neighborhood

The area surrounding the Washington Park Arboretum is one of the loveliest neighborhoods in Seattle. The listing is about four blocks from the southern end of the Arboretum, which is home to the Japanese Garden. Full of wooded paths and peaceful gardens, the Arboretum is a beautiful spot to go for a stroll or a jog, or simply sit on a picnic blanket and relax.

The listing is also five-minute drive or about a 25-minute walk from Lake Washington, and a 15-minute walk from Volunteer Park, home to the Seattle Asian Art Museum and the Volunteer Park Conservatory with its world class botanical collection. The neighborhood is a mere a 10-15-minute drive or an easy bus or uber ride to downtown.

Finally, this home is a quick walk from several well-known Seattle eateries, including the low key and artsy sushi restaurant Nishino and the contemporary Vietnamese restaurant Monsoon. East Madison Street, home to bustling cafes, bars, bakeries, restaurants, and shops, is an 8-10 minute walk; check out the French comfort food cafe Luc or the highly popular vegetarian restaurant Cafe Flora.

Basically, this listing is the Seattle dream: close to the Arboretum, Volunteer Park, and Lake Washington, situated in quiet residential streets with easy access to downtown, and plenty of room to make the space truly your own over the years.

Listings like this one are going fast. If you are interested in buying this home, or would like to buy or sell another property in the Seattle area, don’t hesitate to contact Pickett Street today ((425) 502-5397 or
