Timeless & Updated 2-Bedroom, 1-Bath Bungalow in Seattle’s Highland Park Neighborhood 

Featuring several updates that promise peace of mind and easy living at every turn, this 950-square-foot vintage Seattle bungalow is wonderfully move-in ready! In addition to 2 bedrooms and 1 bath, this home-sweet-home offers welcoming living spaces filled with natural light, and fresh paint and new carpet gives this 1951-built beauty that “like new” feel. Additional updates include a new hot water heater, a newer energy efficient furnace, and newer appliances in both the laundry area and kitchen. And just wait until you see the picturesque landscaped yard—established trees, flowers, and shrubs all offer natural beauty to enjoy from the moment you arrive home. Located at 8408 13th Ave SW Seattle, WA 98106, this residence is listed for $525,000. (Plus, a full house inspection and sewer scope are available for your convenience!) 

Captivating curb appeal delights, and just past a gorgeous new cedar fence you’ll find the manicured front yard. A charming pathway guides you past meticulously cared for plants right up to the front door that features a glass storm door. The inviting living room awaits as soon as you step inside, and this light-filled gathering space is anchored by an exquisitely accented cozy wood stove. 

The layout effortlessly flows into the dining area, which opens up into the sundrenched kitchen. Newer appliances ensure efficiency, while matching pristine white cabinetry provides storage and open shelving where you can decorate with treasured dishware and your favorite cookbooks. At the kitchen sink, you can admire views of the storybook backyard, and a scalloped valance over the sink adds a touch of vintage style! A utility room is just off the kitchen, and the newer washer and dryer stay with the home. You’ll also find storage here for home essentials, and just around the corner even more handy built-in storage awaits. 

This home’s 2 bedrooms both provide privacy and comfort, and built-in closets and windows that let in cheerful natural light are both in the mix. For even more versatile space, this property includes a deep detached 1-car garage that includes shelves and a workbench. In addition to parking, you can use this space for storage or setting up a hobby space! 

One of this home’s top highlights awaits with its idyllic and expertly curated outdoor offerings. In the private, partially fenced backyard oasis, a stunning patio featuring custom paver stones provides the ideal scene for outdoor relaxation and entertaining. Mature greenery offers a view and year-round beauty in addition to a sense of seclusion, and if you like to garden, you can enjoy days tending to the plants and adding your own favorites here and there. Western exposure gives you great afternoon sun; set up a couple of comfy lounge chairs for sunbathing and vacation-inspired hangouts without even having to leave the comfort of home!
