When my office mate Kerry told me that she had listed a 3800 square foot home in the Hazel Valley/Evergreen area of Burien, I was intrigued. I haven't been into too many homes of that size in this area. So when I went into the house last Tuesday I was very pleasantly surprised.
From the outside the home looks like a typical 50's home, and has nice landscaping in front. But when you go inside and down a few steps, you're greeted by a giant stone wall(not a fireplace, just a stone wall with places to put plants!). There are actually two separate upstairs "wings", if you will. One is above the kitchen/laundry and is accessible by a stairway off of the kitchen. There is a bathroom, large bedroom and a fun hidden cubby space that would be a great child's play area.
The other stairway up is by the front door, and it leads to 3 more very large bedrooms. The master has a huge deck, the coolest closet with built-ins everywhere, and the continental bathroom is beyond, with the bathtub placed right in the middle of the room.
Everything in this home is period '50's, and impeccably maintained. The main floor also has a huge living room, dining room and large den with bathroom, fireplace and wet bar, and also has sliders to the patio. Going downstairs from the kitchen you'll find a large room with dark walls and red carpet, the perfect man cave. The staircase pictured above is impressive, and the tile area below is set up for some sort of water feature.
This is the coolest house I've seen in a while. The best part about this house is that it's for sale!! Asking price is $450,000, which is pretty good for all this square footage and character, plus a 2 car garage to boot. Want more info? Shoot me an e-mail if interested. By the way, Kerry gave me permission to introduce her listing to y'all since it's in 98146. Somebody please buy it and love it!
