Welcome to this in-city retreat in Broadview. While at home, you’ll feel as if you stepped into your own garden sanctuary. Truly the best of both worlds, this sunny patch of Seattle soil offers exceptional privacy, an excellent neighborhood, three different quick access routes to downtown, and an aura that is the antithesis of cramped city living.
Greeted by a welcoming front porch, the home retains the charm from its humble 1940’s origins. Inside the home is just as delightful. The sunny and spacious living room features a wood-burning fireplace with built-in bookcase and lovely garden views both east and west. Looking around, you can picture the dinner parties you could host in the generous formal dining room. Chefs of all levels will appreciate the large centrally located kitchen with gas cooking and stainless appliances. You’ll look forward to morning coffee in the cute built-in corner breakfast nook.
One of our favorite features of the home is the cheery sunroom. Perfect for reading, writing, or napping. This may soon be your favorite place to relax and gather inspiration from the garden views, or curl up in comfort with your favorite book to the patter of falling rain on the glass overhead. You will also enjoy easy access to the entertainment-sized patio. Imagine the summer parties you can throw. Just add warm summer nights, a few strands of twinkle lights, good music, laughing friends, the chime of cocktail glasses, and the smell of something fabulous drifting from the grill.
At the end of the day, the primary bedroom will be a welcome retreat. The bedroom enjoys lots of closet space and an attached full bath. Guests will enjoy the large second bedroom with a nearby full bath. The lower level includes a 3rd bedroom or family room, laundry area and an abundance of storage.
A virtual walkthrough, additional photos, full home inspection report, including sewer report, are all available on this website. Please enjoy your exploration of the best home in Seattle at this price.

Just a short drive from this home sits Carkeek Park. This park offers extraordinary views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains.

Come take part in an education program, have a picnic, or get involved as a volunteer teacher or as part of an outdoor work party. Walk the Pipers Canyon Story Trail, play on the uniquely salmon themed play area, or touch time at the historic Piper Orchard.
A short distance 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.
