This home, in the heart of Broadview, is the perfect home for entertaining throughout the year. With summer in full swing, the spacious west facing deck with mountain and some Sound views will be a daily destination. Whether you are enjoying a much-needed quiet afternoon with a good book, or hosting fabulous cookouts with friends, the deck may soon be your favorite spot this summer. The deck is also the perfect spot to enjoy spectacular sunsets, which are beautiful year-round, but especially vivid in the summer months.
Inside, the home is just as comfortable and welcoming. This is one of those homes that instantly feels good. The sunny spacious living room enjoys large picture windows, warm hardwood floors and cozy gas fireplace flanked by bookshelves. The adjacent dining room can easily accommodate a larger table and enjoys easy access to the back deck and yard.
The chef in the home will enjoy the updated kitchen, with newer appliances, plenty of workspace, storage and views to the front yard. Our favorite touch is the use of retro glass blocks that provide a subtle nod to the home 1940’s architecture. The wine coinsurer in the household will love the built-in wine storage.
There are two good sized bedrooms on the main level, both with generous closets. This level is serviced by the updated full bath with dual sinks.
You will appreciate the flexible use for the daylight lower level. The spacious family room features large windows, access to the back yard and a wood burning fireplace with built in bookshelves. The second kitchen on this level will come in handy for entertaining. The lower level includes a 3rd bedroom area which is non-conforming. This would make a nice space for guests or for a dedicated play area/bonus space or home office. There is also a ¾ bath on this level. With the separate entrance, this space could make a great rental, or pleasant extended stay for long-term guests.
The hobbyist in the house will be thrilled with the spacious detached two car garage with alley access. There is also an attached one car garage. Looking for a flex space? As a bonus, there is a finished room off the attached garage. This room has windows and would make a great private home office or dedicated hobby room.
Broadview is very convenient for commuters. The home is walking distance to bus routes to downtown, or a short drive to the new Northgate light rail station.

Not far from this home is Dunn Gardens. This is a privately owned 7.5-acre property composed of the remaining acreage of the estate of Arthur G. Dunn Sr., who made his fortune in the fish cannery business. Dunn bought the property in 1914 as a summer get-a-way for his family, and contracted the landscaping to the Olmsted Brothers. Upon his death, the property was inherited by his children. His son Edward B. Dunn provided for the care of his share of the estate in his will. A trust was created two years after his death to oversee the entire property. Dunn Gardens were listed on the National Register of Historic Places on December 15, 1994, and are open for special public events and docent-led guided tours April through July, and from September through October.
