5 Standout, Must-See Highlights of this 5-Bedroom, 3.5-Bath Washington Park Masterpiece 

Contemporary elegance and premium amenities are wrapped up into this rare 4,037-square-foot Seattle home that’s tucked away in the highly desired Washington Park neighborhood. Not only is this home brimming with sophisticated living spaces designed with entertaining in mind, but you’ll also find 5 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, and ADU potential as well! Located at 557 Lake Washington Blvd E Seattle, WA 98112, this well-appointed masterpiece is listed for $1,125,000. 

From the idyllic setting to the beautifully curated spaces that can be found throughout this residence, it’s not hard to find a long list of things to love about it. But among this extensive list, I wanted to make sure to point out a few must-see highlights—here are the top 5 standout features of this home: 

1. Fantastic location in Seattle’s Washington Park neighborhood. 

Nestled in an established residential neighborhood filled with beautiful, mature greenery, this home is still incredibly close to top city conveniences. The MLK Fame Community Center and the Bush School (an independent, private K-12 school) are just a couple blocks from home, and East Madison Street is just 0.2 miles away. Here you’ll find buses that make it easy to get to Capitol Hill, Downtown, Madison Park and more. Enjoy being just a stroll away from shopping and popular dining spots like Nishino, Belle Epicurean Bakery, Pagliacci Pizza, Cafe Flora, Luc, and many more. You’re also wonderfully close to outdoor opportunities like Washington Park Arboretum, Seattle Japanese Garden, Broadmoor Golf Club, Madison Park Beach, etc.! 

2. Well-appointed entertainer’s kitchen. 

This home’s pristine kitchen could easily be featured in a home design magazine with its shimmering granite counters, modern stainless steel appliances (which includes a double oven and gas cooktop), wet bar, and huge center island. Natural light pours into this gathering space, and a sunny nook, dining area, and balcony are all easily within reach from here and offer ample seating options when you’re hosting a crowd. 

3. Potential for ADU in the basement. 

This home’s sprawling layout also includes a separate living area in the basement with excellent ADU potential (buyer will need to verify with new City of Seattle legislation surrounding ADUs). There’s a separate entry that gives guests access to their very own living room, kitchen, full bath, and 2 bedrooms. 

4. Resort-worthy master suite. 

When it’s time to unwind, this master suite offers sumptuous amenities alongside elegant design. The extra-large layout is filled with natural light and offers lovely views of the surrounding scenery, and you definitely won’t want to miss the spa-worthy ensuite bath. Exquisite finishes and a jetted tub accented with eye-catching tile details promise indulgent wellness routines in the calm, peaceful setting.

Plus, there are 2 more bedrooms on the upper level (along with the full bath, laundry, and den), so all loved ones can have their own private havens to retire to at the end of each day. 

5. Scenic outdoor entertaining options. 

Opportunities for getting out in the fresh air without needing to leave the comfort of home are aplenty here thanks to the outdoor spaces that conveniently expand your living area. A deck is accessible right off the dining room and living room, and here you’ll find plenty of space for al fresco dining and sunbathing. Lovely views that stretch on into the distance are also waiting for you up on the balcony!
