Stunning and rare Seattle-area Hollywood Hills-style on the coveted East Boston Terrace. This 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom home is located in an extremely private, park-like setting with an exceptionally large lot (13,000 sf) in an exquisite and exclusive tucked-away neighborhood. Esteemed architect William Bain, Sr. originally designed the home, prior to starting NBBJ. While Bain designed many of the homes on East Boston Terrace (originally known as the Cape Horn neighborhood), this home was designed for his sister and, accordingly, is extremely special with particular attention to detail. This home offers unsurpassed beauty and flexibility whether one wishes to have a quiet night of refuge reading by the fire, is hosting a large indoor-outdoor garden party in the Seattle summer, or has invited 15+ for an elegant holiday meal.
The home's main level features a large formal living room with a wood burning fireplace and corner-to-corner windows overlooking Interlaken Park, with a separate formal dining room, and chef's kitchen on the same level. In addition, the entry level includes a wing offering one bedroom with en suite bathroom and an adjoining den. The top floor has two bedrooms with ample closet space and storage, as well as an en suite bathroom. The lower levels offer an additional bedroom/guest suite, a beautifully remodeled bathroom and a media/family room with a second kitchen, including new, premium appliances, with a full refrigerator, an icemaker (producing clear ice), a sink and second dishwasher as well as a private wine cellar. This is another exceptional space for entertaining. This sylvan paradise also features a large deck, and a second, covered patio off of the formal dining room. The large lot is professionally landscaped with rare plants and trees. Landscaping maintenance is included. Two car attached garage. Available Now. First and last month's rent and $5550 deposit. 12-month lease. No Smoking. Pets considered on a case-by-case basis - preferably no cats.
When you are in this home, you feel 1000 miles away. However, this home is five minutes from South Lake Union, six minutes from Hwy 520, and 10 minutes from downtown Seattle. The alluring mix of Michelin-starred restaurants, cafes, bars, shopping, museums, and three historic parks, all within a mile on Capitol Hill are easily accessed on foot or by bicycle. This is an opportunity that should not be missed!
