Lovely Montlake Tudor Home
This home is sits on a level tree-lined street just two short blocks from the Montlake Community Center and Playfields.
There are 4 bedrooms, one on the main floor, three on the second floor and 3 of them are large enough to have seating areas. There are 5 bathrooms (very unusual in a neighborhood where homes have just 1 or 2) 2 half baths, 2 three quarter baths, and 1 full bath.
The home was built in 1928 and has many period details: coved ceilings, stained glass window details, original leaded windows, archways and hardwood floors newly refinished with a dark coffee stain. Formal dining room, entryway under the turret, and the Family/TV room even has a wet bar concealed in the cabinet. There is even a "secret room" that any 9 year old Harry Potter fan would love!
There are 2950 finished square feet, and 840 unfinished for a total of 3790 square feet. The basement has a large, natural light-filled laundry room, half bath, recreation or possible media room, den (originally a "short stick" pool room), workshop, large storage area and an area that would be great for wine storage. The den was originally a 1 car garage, and could be restored, even potentially made into a tandem 2 car garage if the workroom was used too.
Outside there is an enclosed patio off the kitchen. The house sits on a street-to-street lot so there is plenty of parking on E. McGraw St. behind the house as well as driveway parking for one car.
Montlake is ideally situated for quick and easy access to Downtown Seattle, and to Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmondand other Eastside destinations. It lies just south of the University of Washington, across from the Montlake Cut which separates Lake Washington and Lake Union. Montlake is surrounded by parks; West Montlake Park, East Montlake Park, The Arboretum, Interlaken Park and the Montlake Playfields. The neighborhood has a wonderful friendly "Leave it to Beaver" feel to it, very much a walk around, bike or jogging neighborhood. Portage Bay borders the Montlake Playfields and both the Seattle Yacht Club and Queen City Yacht Club are nearby in Portage Bay.
