Listing by NWMLS / Windermere Abode


Some things merit preservation; a true Craftsman is one of them. Aesthetic loyalty and restoration protect and enrich the beauty of this North End bungalow. Original oak and fir floors; windows and millwork; even the original, refinished bath and sink speak clearly of the quality sustained across decades. A window-wrapped reading room adjoins the dining space. A sun porch extends from the eat-in kitchen. A custom mahogany mantel distinguishes the gas fireplace. The garden—rich in diverse plantings—flanks three sides of the house in leaf and blossom, peony and patio, lawn and lavender. Set on a landscaped corner lot with a carriage house style garage in the Three Bridges District near shops, cafes, Proctor and the University of Puget Sound.

What’s Nearby

It’s grilling season and you won’t need to go far to get your fresh, high-quality & hard-to-find meat that comes from local farms. Dave’s Meat and Produce have been a long-standing staple in this neighborhood. They also offer a small selection of produce, beer, wine, condiments, and bread. On the weekends they have a burger & fries stand out front if you don’t feel like firing up the grill yourself.

Lander Coffee is a local favorite and is just a mile away. It’s bright, cozy, with a minimalist vibe, and friendly. When their shop opens again, it’s a great place to meet up with a friend or sit and catch up on a little work, and a little play area for kiddos. Get fresh pressed juices, get a jug of latte or cold brew to get you through that work-from-home week, and beans to make your own fresh pressed coffee at home.

Along N 21st Street and just a minute away are the Willow Salon and Spa, Source Yoga, Magoo’s Ale House, and Eatery, Evolve Home + Apparel, Lou’s Barber Shop, 21 Cellars, The Rustic Aristocat Coffee Co, Cementine House and The Beach House Salon.

Grab brunch, lunch, and dinner at Brewer’s Row full of an array of Mexican dishes, or Cook’s Tavern, a rotating seasonal menu featuring various regions in the Americas. Also, check out Rosewood Cafe and order salmon tacos and a cowboy sundae for dessert.

This home is also a half mile from the University of Puget Sound campus (one of the best spots for fall foliage & a cool summer breeze). Every spring UPS hosts a flea market with the Women’ League – you can find around 70+ vendors selling antiques, repurposed items, vintage, jewelry, bath and body goods, home decor, crafts, artwork, and food trucks! The $10 admission to get into the event, 100% of the proceeds go towards student scholarships. They also regularly host concerts and art exhibits.
