When a house hosts happy lives for many years, you can feel it.
Sitting high on one of Mt. Baker's most desirable streets, this extensively remodeled 1921 home overflows with good surprises...and that intangible Happy House feeling. To the south, a protected open plot guarantees abundant light, privacy and breathing room. At the rear, level alley access, a garage, and lush gardens. Indoors, a sunny nook hides behind the fireplace, skylights ring the top floor, and tasteful custom craftsmanship graces the kitchen. The final big reveal? Crisp modernism on the fully finished lower level, with heated concrete floors and frosted glass panels.
And if you know the neighborhood, you already love the location. For picnics, play time and tennis games, Mt. Baker Park is two blocks away--the beach a few more. Wander home past century-old mansions to summer's eve dinners beneath the willow tree. Don't feel like cooking? There's always Mioposto just around the corner, or grab some take-away from The Feed Store. Heading further out? Light rail and major freeways are just down the road. It's a sweet life.
