BEACON HILL MID-CENTURY STARTER!
7712 37th Avenue South - Seattle, Washington
Enjoy the comfort and peace of mind of a well-cared for, move-in-ready home – just love living here! On a great tree-lined street, this beautiful mid-century basement rambler is sits on a huge 8,576 square foot level lot with a fenced level back yard abutting the Chief Sealth Trail, and an orchard adorned with mature, bountiful Greengage plum, apple, pear, and Italian fig trees. Walk through the back-yard gate to the trail for a brisk morning walk or bike ride, or a relaxing evening stroll. Inside you’ll find a light and cheery main floor with warmth from gleaming oak hardwood floors and varnished wood trim. Nicely-updated kitchen features newer cabinetry and hardware, granite countertops, new vinyl flooring, and brand-new Samsung refrigerator. The kitchen looks west, out to the front yard. A bright open floorplan connects the kitchen with the dining room, and into the spacious living room, which enjoys orchard vistas to the east through a wall of windows for tons of natural light throughout the day, and a cozy period wood-burning fireplace with slate hearth, to nestle up to during those cold winter evenings. The main floor hosts 2 bedrooms and an updated full bath with tile shower surround, tile flooring, and newer vanity with granite countertop. Both bedrooms are generous in size, featuring pristine original varnished wood molding and doors. The first bedroom faces west toward the front yard and sunset, the extra-large master bedroom enjoys a serene view of the backyard and a peak-a-boo view of the lake and mountain sunrises to the west! The comfortable daylight basement has a huge family room with 2nd fireplace, great ceiling height, newer laminate flooring, and potential for 3rd bedroom. The office/flex space offers plenty of room for extra storage, bikes, study, office, or studio with a 1/2 bath right next door with new hot water heater. The day-lit full laundry room has a laundry sink, period folding table with built-in cabinetry and cupboards for more storage space. Got storage!? CHECK! There is also a storage room under the stairway, another finished room with a brand-new gas furnace, newer central air conditioning, and exterior access. There is also a 69 square foot storage room/canning room with built-in shelving and its own window. The oil tank was recently decommissioned. The sewer was recently inspected and in GREAT condition. The owner had a recent whole house structural inspection completed, then re-inspected after the items were corrected. The home and sewer inspections are provided to get you started. The garage door with remote control opener has been newly replaced. Conveniently located minutes to parks, schools, library, shopping, eateries, light rail, I-5 access, busting Georgetown, downtown Seattle and beyond...
