Meticulously Restored Magnolia Tudor – Sold for $2,150,000
Nestled in Magnolia with striking views of the Sound and city, this meticulously restored Tudor will wow you. A tight-knit community, Magnolia harkens back to the days where neighbors all know one another creating a wonderful small-town neighborhood feel while still being a stone’s throw from the vibrancy and amenities of the Downtown core. The heart of Magnolia, the Village, boasts restaurants, cafes, parks and hosts annual events like Summerfest and Winterfest, bringing the streets alive with friendly neighbors, lively parades, and live music. This home sits right by Ella Bailey Park, a true gem, with views that rival Kerry Park in Queen Anne, showing off the lights of the city, the majesty of Mount Rainier and the sparkling waters of Puget Sound.
A stately Tudor, this home has been lovingly restored, maintaining the classic features and character of the 1920’s while adding the conveniences and beauty of modern living. Lush colorful landscaping welcomes you to this corner lot home set high above the street maximizing views and privacy. The formal foyer entry features a Magnolia flower hardwood floor medallion inlay just inside the original mahogany round-top front door. Original touches abound in the main level formal entertaining spaces. Coved ceilings and picture rails, deco archways, leaded glass tulip windows, and Bachelder tile fireplace surround showcase the quality craftsmanship of the 20’s. Refinished and stained hardwoods carry throughout the main floor. A spacious living room and grand dining room make large gatherings a breeze. The newly renovated eat-in kitchen is magnificent. No detail was overlooked. A true chef’s kitchen. High end-appliances, custom-designed zinc bartop and range hood, 6 burner stove with pot filler, cabinet fronted refrigerator and the piece-de-resistance, a dumbwaiter to whisk your food and beverages up to your 2nd story view deck! The bonus room off the kitchen was used as a bar area with speakeasy inspired lighting and a wet bar with a beverage refrigerator but is a flexible space that could be used to meet whatever your needs may be.
Two generously sized bedrooms, that can each easily fit king-sized beds, grace the main level. The hall bath retains its vintage charm. Head upstairs to the find a living space, great for a media room. This space flows out onto the view deck with incredible views of the Seattle skyline, Sound and Mount Rainier.

A convenient laundry space is also located upstairs.
The lower level adds even more livable space and can serve as a guest level, space for kids, a mother-in-law apartment, or a nightly rental. With a kitchenette and laundry hookups, two bedrooms and a recently updated bathroom, this space can be accessed from inside the house but also has a separate exterior entrance.
