Five Things I Love Most About This 1940s Madison Park Home
Let’s take a deeper dive into this home’s best features!
The Living Room
What can a Diva say about this sweet living room? These huge corner windows bring in lovely filtered northwestern light so it’s never glaringly hot, even in the summer. Speaking of hot—this room also has a centrally located wood burning fireplace. Stoke up a fire on those chilly sweater weather evenings and cuddle up with your honey, a good book and a hot cup of tea. Not a bad way to ride out a NW Winter.
Another feature that I love about this living room is this great corner nook. Since it is just around the corner from the dining room, it’s an optimal spot for a beautiful piece of furniture to store your dishware. Now, if it were me, I would get some mod wood shelving or a glass hutch to show off my mid-century collectibles.
You all know how much I love vintage design and aesthetics. Well, this kitchen is so freakin’ cute! It’s super bright and cheery. And the design is classic 1940s with the addition of some modern appliances for your everyday convenience. Like the fabulous new stove. There is also enough cabinet space to stash your cool mid-century dishes. There is even space in this quaint kitchen for a breakfast table. You can relax and watch the hummingbirds while enjoying your morning coffee or have your bestie hang out while you whip up dinner.
Oh! And you can see Bert’s Red Apple right from your kitchen window! So when you need some more sugar for your chocolate torte, you can just pop out the door and be there and back in minutes. Talk about convenience!
The Finished Basement in This 1940s Madison Park Home
Who doesn’t love a comfy finished basement? Well, you’re in luck because this home has one. It also comes with a fab fireplace just like the upstairs living room. (Side note: According to the owner, both of these fireplaces kept the house warm for days during a Snowpocalype power outage.) The basement is the ultimate hang out space. Whether it’s watching a movie, playing a rousing game of GTA on your Xbox, or chilling in front of the fire, there is plenty of room down here for all types of fun.
And, of course, this basement is also fabulous for displaying all of your mid-century collectibles. There are even more details to note about this basement: It also has a finished bedroom with a three-quarter bath, a perfect area for crafting, laundry space, and a storage room that makes the perfect wine cellar.
The Front Yard
Our seller decided to put in this great front fence when she moved in and what a difference it makes. Now this yard is private and ready for your pups to roam free. Play some lawn games, sunbathe, or just relax around a fire. You can even BBQ on the back patio and then enjoy a wonderful dinner under the stars in this spacious front yard.
The Madison Park Location
Let’s talk about Madison Park. This area was originally occupied by the Duwamish people, until the settlers showed up. The Duwamish shared this forested space on the banks of Lake Washington with bears, otters, and minks. After Seattle was settled in the 1850s, Madison Park became a desirable recreation area and was soon developed by Judge McGilvra. With the creation of Madison Street also came a cable car that brought folks to this area year round. Then the Lake Washington Ship Canal opened in 1917. This had a major impact on this area since it dropped the lake by 9 feet. This extended and changed the shoreline, thus helping Madison Park become the highly prized beachside community it is today.
At Madison Park Beach you can swim, sunbathe, go kayaking or paddle boarding, or just relax and take in the view. And beach access is just one of the many amenities folks enjoy living here in Madison Park. Madison street itself is lined with shops and restaurants. There is all you need for daily living like, a grocery store, banks, a vet clinic, and even a hardware store. And it is also packed with great places to dine like, Cactus, How to Cook a Wolf, Madison Kitchen, and Bamboo Thai Cuisine, just to name a few.
Madison Park is also centrally located so you can be in Capitol Hill, Downtown, or the U-District in minutes. You are right between the I-90 and the 520 bridges, so getting across the lake is also no hassle. Basically, living here in Madison Park means you almost never have to use your car, but when you do, accessing the rest of Seattle and the surrounding area will be a breeze!
