Meaning enjoy it now because it will not be here long. And that juiciness is exactly what this stunning renovated mid-century home in Kenmore is.
Our Diva Dwellers are long practitioners of the Diva Difference process. Meaning they buy a home that needs work but is in a great neighborhood. And they dig into truly make sure the home shines its best. And that is exactly what these Diva Dwellers did. They renovated this mid-century home to capture the vaulted ceilings and invite the outside in. The home is perfectly done. Which is super rare!!!!
Let’s dive in and let us list out the ten reasons we love this renovated mid-century home in Kenmore.
Top Ten Reasons We Are Crushing Hard On this Renovated Mid-Century Home in Kenmore
Generally, the majority of renovated mid-century homes in Seattle follow a formula. The owners open up the kitchen to the living space, update the bathrooms with builder-grade elements, and any remnant of architectural detail is removed. But in this mid-century home, the renovated details were intentional to keep the charm of this historic space. And it makes our hearts swoon.
The Architectural Details of a Truly Unique Renovated Mid-Century Home Has
The vaulted ceilings are highlighted in a couple of ways in the renovation. First, the band of wood paneling that connects the kitchen to the fireplace showcases how tall the ceilings are. The sellers also added skylights in the kitchen that connect with the existing windows. And the result is amazing. These are details that most people do not think about doing. But the current owners were super thoughtful about the space and how it flows.
The Open Living Kitchen Room
The open-plan living kitchen was designed and built to bring as much of the outside beauty of the home inside. And this was done by building out floor-to-ceiling windows and easy access to the deck. The result is a super easy space to live, entertain, and just enjoy the simple beauty of outside.
The Breakfast Bar in the Kitchen
Maybe it is the staging. Maybe it is just the fact that this space looks so cozy. Honestly, I can see all the humans enjoying this space as they hang out with family and friends. Put out snacks and have some company while you are prepping dinner.
The Primary Suite Made for a True Diva
The Primary suite is a personal favorite room of the sellers. It is better equipped than most upmarket hotels with heated floors, heated towel rails, a shower for two, a huge soaking tub, plus a walk-in closet big enough for all the shoes a Diva can collect. And the primary suite has a full view of the forest. It is waking up and feeling like you are in a treehouse. But way nicer!
The Light Inside Even Though the Home is in the Middle of the Forest
Even on the darkest days of Seattle Winter, this house has tons of light from the skylights, windows, and plenty of strategically placed lighting. Most people assume a house that is surrounded by trees is super dark. But that is not the case in this situation. The owners put a lot of intention and love into how the space is constantly illuminated.
The current owners describe the deck as one of their top three rooms in the house. The deck is an extension of the living room and kitchen and extends all the way down to the lower years. It is the best for Summer barbecues with friends around the table and loungers. Or an evening under the string lights with just the two of the owners is so romantic.
The garden is a fairytale garden. And is complete with hummingbirds, squirrels, bunnies, beautiful tulips and daffodils in spring, and so many gorgeous flowers all year round. By adding electrical outlets to the outside of the house the sellers were able to magically light it up every holiday season too. The huge Alaskan cedar to the right of the front path is one of the first reasons our sellers fell in love with this house.
The Downstairs Romper Room and Vintage Bar
Any of us who have been living and working from home these past few years appreciate the meaning of having space. And having a space for us to watch TV, host a game night, or build an indoor fort is a premium right now. All of us are in love with this downstairs space. It has a rad bar, a guest suite, an extra room for storage, and so much more.
The Upgraded Electrical For Electrical Vehicles and a Workshop
The sellers upgraded the electrical throughout the home. This is something that even the Divas have not done to their home. But by doing so they were able to create a fully functional woodshop in the garage. And the home is fully capable of charging your electrical vehicles.
Kenmore and the surrounding area have some hidden gems, like Third Place Books, Hillcrest Bakery, and The Chocolate Man, Saint Edwards State Park and so much more. Super close by there is a marina and newly developed waterside park. And you know the Divas love to spend their free time paddle boarding and kayaking. Kenmore also has its own farmers’ market.
