This Madison Valley Townhome is a great example of a Diva Dwelling at that price point. Below I will chat with you all about the show off this townhome’s kitchen, the views, the rooftop deck, all of the fab upgrades, and the neighborhood. 

Cheers to the Kitchen!

Madison Valley Townhouse Stainless Steel Kitchen

Our Diva Dweller Marlene (the seller) has one of the most discerning eyes when it comes to layout. Well, it really shows with this townhome’s kitchen! If you’ve spent a lot of time recently looking at newer townhomes, you may have noticed that it’s not easy to find a kitchen with a great layout. In fact, it sure seems like a lot of the townhouses that have been built recently are not designed to allow you to actually cook. As all of us are spending more time at home, the need to craft something truly yummy on this designer stove is essential. Plus, this kitchen comes with tons of storage and smart upgrades, too! 

Bask in Natural Light & Admire Views Throughout

From the lower bedroom “downstairs” all the way to the roof, this home offers tons of light in each space. Windows on the east, south, and west side of the home mean you get tons of natural light all day long. This is definitely not the case for most townhouses. And, being that it’s east-facing, you also get beautiful territorial views over Madison Valley. This month is also the perfect time to peep those color-changing trees. 

Divine Rooftop Deck with View of the Cascades

Madison Valley Townhouse Rooftop Deck and Views 

This deck! What can I say? Take a look around. You can see for miles and miles from up here. In fact, you can see the majestic Cascades on a clear day. Up here, you have hookups for a gas grill, and water for your plants. If planting on the roof feels like a pain, worry not, this complex has its own garden where you can grow your veggies to bring back up here to grill. Hosting friends up here is a breeze, too. Barbecue up dinner, sip on your favorite bevvies while the sun goes down, and at night, enjoy views of the city lights. 

Smart Upgrades & Maintenance

This home is only a few years old and was built by one of the better home builders in our market. But that’s not enough! Our Diva Dweller has put in a ton of upgrades in the kitchen with storage galore.

Tell Us About the Upgrades

  • Heated Tile Floors: Upgrades also include heated tile floors in the bathroom upstairs to make this home beyond special.
  • Wired for an Electric Car Charging Station: One future upgrade that is hardly ever seen in new townhouses is that the parking space is already wired for an electric car charging station.
  • Air Conditioning: And did I mention our fab seller added AC?!

Superior General Maintenance

Typical home buyers of Townhouses treat them like they are a rental. You would be shocked at the wear and tear some of these homes received. Not our Diva Dweller. She made sure to keep up on general maintenance on the home so there are no surprises for future owners.

Move right in with peace of mind!  Perfection! 


Take a 3D Tour and Our COVID Protocols

Team Diva takes every precaution, and then some, to make sure all of our homes are listed following all COVID precautions. Part of this is providing a 3D Tour for those who need a little more information online before going to tour a home in person. It is our duty to ensure everyone’s safety as you enter one of our listings. Feel free to take a virtual tour from the comfort of your couch!

What Can You Buy for Under $850,000 in Seattle? A Townhouse in the Madison Valley Neighborhood!

Madison Valley and Washington Park Arboretum

As the last year and this constant state of change has taught us, our neighborhoods are more important than ever. When it comes to special neighborhoods with specific charm, Madison Valley is no different. We love to get fresh plants from City People’s. We hang out with friends and past clients at Cafe Flora or Bar Cantinetta. When you feel like getting lost in nature for a while, stroll through the Arboretum to peep those fall colors up close. Madison Valley lets you enjoy dining, shopping, local services, natural beauty, and you’re only a bus ride away from Downtown Seattle.

    Michael,

    I love the video. We all need one of Kim’s famous cookies!
    The neighbors and neighborhood are wonderful. Parking is usually open out front for visitors. You can walk to many stores, shops & restaurants from this location. And several buses are about a one minute walk away.
