Picture-perfect curb appeal greets you when you arrive home to this Craftsman cutie. Not only does the large deck offer an inviting scene to greet you, but it offers lovely views of Commencement Bay. Set up a couple of comfy lounge chairs and sunbathe in style while you admire the scenery, or create an outdoor retreat complete with an outdoor dining set that’s ready for hosting barbecues and sunny get-togethers all summer long! The deck overlooks the yard, where landscaping offers the perfect spot to put your green thumb to work—there’s room to add in your favorite plants, landscaping elements, and personal touches to truly make this oasis your own. Plus, the yard is newly fenced, so you can let pets wander with peace of mind! 

In the bright and welcoming living room, a modern color palette is accented by crisp white trim, and gorgeous hardwood floors flow right into the dining area. Whether you’re hosting guests for dinner or simply relaxing in the living room, you can enjoy views of Commencement Bay out the shimmering windows. 

The renovated kitchen is easily within reach, and this dialed-in space shows off a smart design where everything you need is at your fingertips. Sunlight streams in to shine the spotlight on generous cabinetry storage, new stainless steel appliances, and timeless finishes. A cozy adjacent breakfast nook is the perfect scene for sipping on your morning cup of coffee or serving up weekend brunch, and this space would also make a quaint home office! 

In the bedroom, a spacious layout provides versatility. There’s a sweet little nook where a stained glass window adds Craftsman charm, and here you could set up a comfy sitting area, a workout center, or a desk. A new custom closet system is included, as well as an ensuite bath that provides a fresh aesthetic and tons of storage.
