1428 9th Ave W, Seattle

A good view never gets old. For this home, to go along with its classic Puget Sound view you will also get a time-honored Tudor. This 1910 home has been restored and oozes character, quality, and authentic details. Impeccable mahogany trim work and a Batchelder tile fireplace are just two of its finer points.

Unlike most Tudors, this one is flooded with light because it is perched on a west facing hillside. Illusive in-city privacy is also available at this Queen Anne home because of its siting well above the street.

In the past 10 years this home has seen over $470,000 worth of major renovations and improvements. Unglamorous updates include repairs to the side sewer, a roof replacement, whole house electrical rewiring, a new furnace, copper pipes, earthquake retrofitting, and tuck pointing.

A complete dream kitchen by Kirk Riley Design optimizes space, storage, and views. Also incorporated in design is heated floors, custom navy cabinets with antique mirror doors, brass hardware, and stainless appliances that will bring out your epicurean side.

“We were able to keep original windows above [the] sink and add counter space and improve the work flow in this high traffic kitchen.” Heather Kirk

The upgrades didn’t stop at the kitchen, a full daylight basement remodel gives you all the amenities you expect in a luxury home, including a wine cellar. The master suite includes a remodeled bathroom that keeps in style with the kitchen and is rounded out with a walk in closet. The front and back yards have also been refreshed.

One potential project left for the next owners could be the addition of a garage. The current owners already have two design options created by the now named Prentiss Balance Wickline Architects. One garage option includes an apartment and one is without.

SOLD: This home is no longer available, it sold for $1,777,500.
