Picture-perfect curb appeal ensures that this beauty is a joy to arrive home to time and time again, and as soon as you step in through the front door, this home’s welcoming, light-filled living spaces do not disappoint! In the main living area, a gorgeous fireplace rests alongside beautiful hardwoods and crisp white trim, and rejuvenating sunlight cascades in through large windows. Plus, a tasteful, neutral color palette makes it easy to move right in and begin to decorate and infuse this space with your own personal decor! 

From here the layout unfolds into the dining area and open kitchen. The dining area features exquisite built-ins perfect for storing essentials and displaying special dishware. Even more seating is provided at the counter, which also offers a view of the kitchen that sparkles with dialed-in style. A gas range, self-cleaning oven, super quiet Bosch dishwasher, soft-close drawers and cabinet doors, slide-out garbage and recycle bins, and built-in spice racks in the pantry cabinets are just a few of the customized details you’ll find here to make life easier! 

Wonderful versatility awaits with this home’s 3 bedrooms, and just wait until you see the stunning bathroom! This reimagined space shows off a spa-inspired atmosphere, and impressive tile work, a classic clawfoot bathtub, and vibrant statement pieces are all in the mix for a magazine-worthy scene. This home also comes with a couple of options for adding a second bath—according to the sellers, you could add a wide dormer off the upstairs hall facing the backyard between the 2 bedrooms, or you could convert the basement garage into a family/party room and bath. 

Even more flexible space awaits in the office that’s ideal for working from home, and this expertly designed area features built-in bookcases, cabinets, and file folder drawers. More potential can be found in the extra attic storage upstairs, and the basement garage is the perfect spot for parking or projects (and includes automatic carriage doors). 

Before we move onto showing off the detached garage, there are a few more important features to call out! There is a laundry chute from the bath to the laundry room, and the washer and dryer stay with the home. The hot water tank is just 1-2 years old, and the furnace is about 10 years old and recently had maintenance service. There is also a SimpliSafe alarm system for peace of mind, and RV/boat parking (sellers had a 24’ Class C parked in the space for reference). Also, some of the furniture currently in the house can be purchased from the sellers. 

The newer detached 2.5-car garage has been thoughtfully curated to offer a premium experience! This 884-square-foot space has 200 amp service, 220v outlet, separately 20 amp circuit for each wall, built-in cabinets, and a butcher block countertop for workbench. Storage is fully insulated and heated, and there is a storage attic with pull-down stairs for easy access. 

In the backyard, a storybook wonderland awaits! Stone paths meander through lush landscaping that’s overflowing with vibrant flowers and greenery. Spend sunny afternoons putting your green thumb to work, and relax out in the fresh air on the covered patio. Pure bliss!

Click here to explore the 3D tour, and take a moment to learn more about this home’s 4 standout features: 

1. Vintage character meets modern amenities. 

Built in 1908, this historic home would have been one of the first houses in the area as the local streetcar was completed in 1907. Stately vintage style characterizes this exceptional beauty, and picturesque curb appeal awaits. Details like rich wood elements, a clawfoot tub in the main bedroom’s ensuite bath, eye-catching light fixtures, and a custom kitchen pantry with restored vintage doors are just a few of the ways this home embraces its early 20th century origins. 

All of this rests alongside modern amenities that provide ease in daily life. A not-to-miss highlight in this regard is the immaculate kitchen; stainless steel appliances, a touchless faucet and filtered drinking water, and a garbage disposal provide top-notch functionality.  

2. Discover updates galore! 

An impressive list of thoughtful upgrades and considerations have been made so you can enjoy a worry-free move in. In 2019, several windows throughout the home were replaced with wood Milgard double pane and double hung windows with a self-locking mechanism; almost $20,000 was spent on this upgrade, and they have a transferable warranty. Window blinds are custom Levolor.

The smoke detectors have an integrated 10-year battery (all have been tested and work), and there is also a CO detector plug-in with battery backup on each floor. Also, the basement has a Permadry system built into the corner of the laundry room, and the seller has maintenance records to provide to the new owner. 

There’s still room for you to make some customizations if you’d like—the garage fits 2 cars (a rarity in Seattle!), and the sellers had a solar panel assessment done; the garage roof is an excellent fit for solar panels if you wish to install these in the future! 

3. A lovely yard offers you your very own oasis in the city. 

In the front yard, you’ll find Hawthorn trees by the street, a clumping/non-invasive species of bamboo, and a planter at the end of the front porch with climbing vines is a grape plant. The rest of the yard is brimming with even more fruit; there are trees bearing apples, pears, nectarines, figs, and crab apples all in the mix! There is a raspberry patch along the back of the garage, and potential to grow even more of your favorite fruits and veggies in raised garden beds. Behind the garage you will also find cinder block foundations that were for a garden shed and chicken coop, but now you can use them for garden beds if you’d like! 

4. Fantastic location in Seattle’s Rainier Valley neighborhood.

At 8127 48th Ave S, Seattle, WA 98118, you’re nestled in a residential setting (where there’s plenty of street parking if you need it) yet close to local convenience, and an easy commute to Downtown Seattle, South Lake Union, or the Eastside. Local favorites that are just blocks away include Ethiopian restaurants, the summer Rainier Beach Farm Stand, Othello Playground Park (which features a new playground, outdoor summer movies, festivals, and more), and Rainier Beach Community Center (which features an indoor pool with a waterslide, gym, and playground). Lake Washington and waterfront parks are also close by, and there is also a bike greenway around the corner that has limited car traffic and will take you into nearby Columbia City. 

When you need to run errands, you’re close to Safeway, and of course Columbia City conveniences (including PCC, cute historic storefronts, an amazing farmers market, destination dining, coffee shops and more) are close by as well. This home’s sellers also appreciate being so close to The Landing in Renton; here you’ll find Target and tons of other big box stores. 

Those who need to commute are also sure to appreciate this location; you’re only 3 blocks from the 7 and 9 bus lines for easy commuting to Downtown Seattle, Capitol Hill, and South Lake Union. You’re also just 0.7 miles from the Rainier Beach light rail station and 0.8 miles from the Othello light rail station, and you can also use the Via app to call a vanshare to get to/from the light rail stations for the cost of your regular ORCA card fare.
