Continue on for the video tour, photos, neighborhood highlights, and more details about this home. 

This neighborhood is about peace. It's a place where the front yards are bright and open and lots of light comes in, while the back yards are bordered by tall evergreens, mossy maples and alders, and iconic Pacific Northwest madronas. Hear an owl hooting at night and catch glimpses of deer stepping through this park-like setting. The neighborhood gate is closed from 7 pm until 7 am, which keeps the street especially quiet in the evening hours and at night. At the end of this private, tree-lined neighborhood, turn into the paved driveway from the cul de sac and park in the 2 car garage. Or, step out of your car in the fresh air and head up to the front.

Living Room & Entry

 A wooden front door opens onto the stone entry of the living room with a cozy propane fireplace.

The front door opens onto a stone entry so shoes can come off before stepping into the living space. This is the heart of the home, where vaulted ceilings and a skylight rise over a comfortable fireside living room that flows into the dining area. The living room is cozy with its propane fireplace, white mantle, and stone hearth. A coat closet is a nice touch in this room, especially convenient for guests. While we're still near the front of the home, we should note that the screen in the screen door can be switched for a glass piece (found in the garage) for winter weather.

The dining room shares that same tall vaulted ceiling and is bright with a sweet view to the back yard through a wide triple-panel sliding glass door. And all of this is seamlessly connected to the kitchen. Pull a stool up to the bar counter to chat with the cook, have a casual meal in the eat-in kitchen, or set the dining table for dinner.

 Living room, dining room, and kitchen flow together, but each has its own space under these high ceilings. Notice the door to the garage near the entrance to the kitchen.

Windows overlook the back and side yard, with an air conditioning unit placed in the back window that ensures there's not a hot spot in the house even in this summer's heat.

The front bedroom is well lit by windows on 2 sides of the room, has a nice closet with white sliding doors, and could function well as an office or den, sewing room, second bedroom, guest room or even a combination of these depending on your needs. 

 A second bedroom at the front of the house includes a spacious closet, good window light, and would also make a nice office, den, sewing room, or combination.

The back yard is bordered by maples, Douglas fir, cedar, alder, madrona, huckleberry bushes, and has a nice shape with the wall creating multiple levels.

Outside, this home offers a private back yard with a lawn and plantings to compliment the natural wooded surroundings. You'll see maple, madrona, Western Red Cedar, Douglas fir, and evergreen huckleberry, just to name a few. Landscaping blocks form a low wall that helps separate the lawn and patio area from the trees and creates another level for featuring shrubs, pots, and other plants. Japanese maples and a lawn bring life to the front of the home. A sprinkler system is in place and the HOA dues (see more below) cover lawn mowing. 

 The front lawn wraps around to this side yard and connects to the private back area. This side of the lot is open to let sunshine in.
