Enjoy the Madison Park lifestyle within the highly desirable Canterbury community. Ascend the brick steps and open the doors to a spacious two story 4,440 square foot design offering 4 bedrooms and 4 baths on an ample 10,057 square foot corner lot. Formal and informing living and dining areas are as suited for grand entertaining as they are for casual, day-to-day living, as a bright dining room complements an elegant living space with high ceilings and a bay window.
In 2001, the owners worked with local architects Art Skolnik and Bryan White in close collaboration with restoration specialist Clinton Miller to complete a 2,200 square foot addition to the original home. The new wing honors the home’s heritage with thoughtful appointments that live for today including a library, second kitchen with wine storage, guest bedroom, laundry, bath cabinets, and additional storage. The 600 square foot library offers reprieve for the voracious reader, as a fireplace that replicates the home’s original two is positioned within a backdrop of vaulted ceilings, meticulous woodwork, and skylights.
Culinary adventures ignite in the original kitchen across a 6-burner gas range and large electric double oven, as carefully restored cabinets and drawers meet new countertops, lighting, a dishwasher, and sink. Enjoy a quick breakfast on the go in the dining nook or bring dinner into formal in and outdoor spaces when entertaining. On the second level, 3 bedrooms and 2 baths are laid out across 1,290 square feet with red oak flooring, fresh paint, and new bathroom counters and sinks, lighting, and Milgard wood clad windows.
An octagonal garden room opens onto two bluestone paved patios accessed by both of the home’s kitchens to afford a moment of quiet reflection or seamless summer entertaining. Mature outdoor plantings include beautiful forty-year-old rhododendrons and lush greenery, with a sprinkler system for convenience.
The lifestyle of this distinctive Canterbury home does not end within its four walls, as a prime position just one block from Lake Washington beaches and Madison Park’s famous restaurants, taverns, retail shops, parks and of course the Madison Park Bakery.
Centrally located with remarkably short drive times and bus rides to downtown Seattle, The University of Washington, and the 520 bridge to Bellevue, Kirkland the Eastside.
