Perfect Starter Home in Broadview
Welcome to this sweet, single level starter home in the heart of Broadview, where the lots are larger and the neighbors are friendly. Broadview also offers easy commuting options, beautiful parks, views of Puget Sound and convenient shopping. Nearby amenities include the Broadview Library, Broadview Tap House, Bitter Lake, Haller Lake, Carkeek Park, Interurban Trail, and the soon-to-be light rail station.
We love one-story homes because of the flexibility they offer and their general wide appeal. Did you know that they tend to live much larger because there is more living space per square foot? You aren’t giving up square footage on staircases. Single story homes are also easier to maintain and are more energy efficient.
Inside this well-maintained home you will find a sunny living room with large picture windows that bring in natural light throughout the day. We think you will appreciate the spacious kitchen with newer appliances and laundry room nearby. Down the hall, you will find three generous bedrooms, and an updated full bath.
With summer nearly here, the sunny, private back yard will be a daily destination for you. The established garden includes heirloom apple tree, flowering bridal-veil hedge and ancient double lilac. Fire up the grill, invite some friends, and enjoy casual summer entertaining. The back half of the backyard is flat and perfect for lawn games. Fido will approve of this fully fenced, roomy yard with squirrels to chase and crows to scold.
A full home inspection report, including sewer report and the title report are available on this site.

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.
