Built in 1915 it has all the period details–gorgeous wood wrapped windows, wide wooden staircase, and built-in benches in the entry-way and dining room. The ceilings are over 8 feet with boxed ceilings on the main level. Walking up the stairs you enter into a spacious hallway and the ceilings are nice and high giving the entire upstairs a spacious and sunny feel. The home is on Palatine Ave NW which sits high up on the Ridge and it’s on the west facing side of the street giving it a perfect panoramic view of the Sound and Olympics. I took pictures as today is breathtaking in Seattle, and especially looking out at the fresh snow on the mountains. But this is a must see in person view–it’s like being in a postcard!
The sellers have already had a pre-inspection done which is a huge convenience for buyers not having to rush to get an inspector in before offers are due. While the home has stayed mostly intact and will be AMAZING if restored well, it does need a little TLC. Build your equity with that incredible view and fabulous location. Walking distance to the shops and restaurants on Phinney Ave and the Woodland Park Zoo. If schools are important to you this location is within the boundaries for West Woodland Elementary, Hamilton Middle, and Ballard High–all of which rate well on great schools.
