LOCATION

This Seattle home is conveniently less than 1 block away from Greenwood Ave, and you’ll find bus lines, the local library, Snapshot Brewing, Alice Ball Park, and more *right* there on the corner. From here, head north or south along Greenwood Ave and you’ll find dozens of highly rated eateries (there are so great restaurants here that we wrote an entire blog post about it). When you need to go grocery shopping, both Fred Meyer and Ken’s Market are only half a mile away. Of course, one of the major highlights of this Greenwood location is the fact that you’re only 0.8 miles to Green Lake. Another one of the very best “parks” in the city is also close by—Woodland Park Zoo and all of its surrounding outdoor amenities are a short 4-minute drive from home! Expand

COMMUTE

This location is absolutely fantastic for commuters whether you need to drive or prefer to take public transit. You’re literally just a 2-minute drive to hop onto Highway 99, and you’re just a quick 4-minute drive to Interstate-5. Whether you need to head into South Lake Union, Downtown Seattle, or get over the 520 Bridge, this particular location lets you do it all with ease. Another great way to get to SLU or Downtown is via the RapidRide E Line bus; it picks up only half a mile from home and zips you straight into Seattle’s urban core. You’re also a quick 14-minute bus ride to the new Light Rail Station at Northgate (coming in October 2021!), making it easy to enjoy a car-free commute and get all the way to SeaTac International Airport.

SPANISH REVIVAL ARCHITECTURE

If you’ve been dreaming about creating a Mediterranean oasis in the city, this rare 1926-built Spanish Revival home presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! You’ll find original elements alongside thoughtful updates that are true to the era, and plenty of room for you to customize with your favorite vibrant colors, bold patterns, vintage pieces, and beautiful tile. Spanish Revival emerged from Spanish Colonial architecture, which was brought to America by Spainards from 1600s - 1800s. Spanish Revival design was especially popular in America from 1915 to 1940.

BACKYARD WONDERLAND

One of the most standout characteristics of a Spanish Colonial or Spanish Revival home has to be the stunning patios (and for larger homes, courtyards). These outdoor getaways are typically seamless extensions of indoor living spaces, and elaborate outdoor furniture setups, mosaic-accented water features, stone and brick elements, and lots and LOTS of lush greenery are all common highlights. This Greenwood home has a private backyard where you can create the paradise of your dreams—cultivate a sanctuary that’ll make you feel like you’re on a Mediterranean vacation each time you step outside!
