Where it is

3616 8 Ave. N.W.

 

The land

This home’s property was designed with tranquility and privacy in mind. Mature trees add shade to enjoy during the hot summers. The front yard is landscaped with rocks, shrubbery and towering trees that bring a rustic touch to the home. The backyard is a retreat where you could host gatherings around the patio, relax on the grass or grow vegetables and flowers in the raised garden beds. There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the outdoors, all from the comfort of home.

 

What to love

This home was carefully designed with energy efficiency in mind with extra-thick exterior walls, Pella windows, air-to-air exchangers and cement tile roofing. The spacious main floor is flooded with natural light, making it a welcoming space for large gatherings or quiet evenings. The wood-burning fireplace adds to the timeless charm of the space. The kitchen adds to that feeling with its wood cabinets, bright white countertops and views of the front yard. The adjacent dining room is equally bright, with a bay window setting the stage for memorable dinners.

The second floor has a sunny bonus room with soaring vaulted ceilings and large windows, making it a cozy retreat. French doors lead to the primary bedroom, which has windows offering scenic views, a walk-in closet and a bright ensuite bathroom. The downstairs is designed as a large multi-use recreation area with a fireplace, making it a great space to host game/movie nights or act as a yoga or fitness room.

 

What to consider

This property is located close to local hospitals, schools and the University District, so there are many nearby amenities. It’s also a quick drive or bike ride to the downtown core and the ample riverside pathways and entertainment there.
