About the Home
This Victorian Era home was built in 1890 and is filled with vintage charm and character. It has been updated and maintained with love but still retains many original features and historic items. Though the home now sits in a cityscape, the original farmhouse charm has been maintained, with a mix of modern and vintage decor. The home is cleaned professionally between each guest. The original built-in cabinets, farmhouse sink, 8 pane sash windows, and craftsman doors are still in place. The interior is open, peaceful, and sunny. The home is a two bedroom residence that sits on a large corner lot, with old trees and lilac bushes that frame the gated yard. The front yard has a wire gate and the backyard has a new six-foot privacy fence. There is a patio area with seating in the large back yard. Spring visits offer blooming lilacs that are great for cutting. The home is cozy, incredibly clean, and very charming. The property is located less than 10 minutes away from Downtown and 3 minutes away from the Olympic Training Center. There are two playgrounds within walking distance. The home is wheelchair accessible with an entry ramp at the back door and handle bars installed in the shower.
