You want a mid century modern home in Mount Vernon that is fully updated. 3321 Wessynton Way is the ideal house for you. This home was designed and built by Miller & Smith in 1967. It is the Meadow floor plan.
Here is a fascinating fact about this home: It was framed in redwood lumber. Redwood was used because it is more stout than pine, and wood destroying insectes like termites don't eat redwood. The exterior wood sheathing is redwood.
The windows have been replaced with energy efficient double-pane windows so you'll have lower heat bills in winter.
The yard is beautifully landscaped with evergreen plants and mature trees that shade the home in summer.
The spacious foyer welcomes you to the home. The kitchen is to the right, the living room is straight ahead. The master suite and two other bedrooms are up five steps to the left. Steps to the lower level take you to a bedroom, a home office, family room, rec room, and gym.
The breakfast room and kitchen have been fully updated with modern tile flooring, new sleek cabinets, granite counter tops, stylish backsplash, and top of the line appliances. Recessed flood lights make the kitchen a bright space to cook and bake.
The dining room is separated from the living room by a free standing fireplace. Recessed lighting bathes the space in light. A floor to ceiling window lets light flood into the dining room.
The spacious living room has a wall of glass across the back of the room, overlooking the forest in the back yard. The land beyond the back yard is Wessynton Park. The free standing fireplace anchors the eye to the space. The living room and dining room are covered in oak hard wood flooring that is original to the house.
A door between the living room and dining room leads to the brick patio. The patio overlooks Wessynton Park. Overlooking the park means the land is protected from future development. No homes will be built behind your home in the future.
Moving upstairs, you'll find a spacious bedroom on the front of the house with large windows that bathe the room with light. The guest bath has new tile, new vanity, new vanity top, and toilet. Your guests will have plenty of space.
The spacious master bedroom gives you floor to soffit windows overlooking Wessynton Park. The floors are the original oak hardwood. The bathroom has been fully renovated with a huge roll-in shower with two shower heads, frameless plate glass, grab rail and a seat.
Moving to the lower level, there is a spacious bedroom on the front of the home with twin windows on the front of the home, and a window on the side of the home. The flooring has been updated to wood. Next to the bedroom is the home office, currently being used as a sitting room.
The lower level bathroom has been updated with new tile in the shower, frameless plate glass shower doors, granite vanity top, new vanity, new toilet, and new floor. All three bathrooms have been updated and upgraded so you can just move in and enjoy.
The family room is currently being used as a home office. Notice the floor to ceiling windows that flank the desk. There are two more large windows on the back of the house that overlook Wessynton Park. The family room has a vaulted ceiling that was originally covered in redwood bu the builder. One of the previous owners covered the ceiling with drywall for reasons unknown. If you are feeling handy, or you know a good handy man, you could remove the drywall and expose the redwood ceiling.
The recreation room is focused on a floor to ceiling brick fireplace. There is a craft area on the work bench in the photo on the right. There is also an area set up for gift wrapping, complete with wrapping paper spools above the work surface.
The home gym is also on the lower level. It has a rubber floor and mirrored wall, ready for your gym equipment.
This five bedroom, three bath home is perfectly priced at $679,000.
