When I see a Craftsman bungalow like this one in the Mount Baker area of Seattle, Washington, I think I can hear it calling me home. This charmer was built in 1913 and has most of its original woodwork intact. Take a look…
The listing says: “Meticulously preserved, sensitively & extensively updated, this lovely home is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. Sited on one of the finest streets in Mount Baker, it has been featured on the biennial Mount Baker Home Tour as one of the very best properties in the neighborhood.”
I would need a lot more color than this if I lived here, but the neutral palette makes the natural woodwork stand out. You see it, not the furniture.
I’m loving this sweet little nook tucked off the dining room:
The house is bigger than it looks from the outside with 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, and 3,350 square feet.
See the door in this second-floor study?
It leads to a nice little balcony. How great would it be to have a view of another charming Craftsman from yours?
One of my favorite features in the house is the tile in the kitchen — so pretty:
The built-in pantry would be another big selling point.
It just went on the market for $865,000 but the status switched to “pending” while I was writing this post. I’m not surprised someone snapped it up! Check the listing for more photos and information. (Thanks to Kim for telling me about it.)
