Sweet West Seattle Craftsman

Cosmetic fixer. Tons of potential.

3424 45th Ave SW front

$635,000

First time on market in 70 years, this charming Craftsman fixer has character. It sits across from James Madison Middle school in West Seattle's Admiral neighborhood on a perfect level lot.

Inside, the home features golden hardwood floors and a stately fireplace, with original tiles. The period light fixtures, coved ceilings and pristine millwork exude character. High ceilings and ample windows flood the interior with natural light.

The large farm kitchen has the original cabinets (in good condition) and a few relics from the past, including an attached manual can opener and tilt out flour bins. The old appliances have been removed so re-imagining the space for future kitchen remodeling is easier.

Both main floor bedrooms are spacious with big windows. The bathroom has some recent plumbing updates: new shower valve and plumbing, new sink plumbing, new toilet. This should allow time for the new owner to live with this cheerful bathroom while dreaming up a remodel.

Two more bedrooms are upstairs, with knotty pine walls and fir floors. The potential upstairs is great: a little paint and maybe even put a little dormer bathroom?

Downstairs, there is good ceiling height and lots of potential: guest bedroom, bathroom, family room, laundry...and workshop! Or make that ADU that you've been thinking about for family, Airbnb, etc.

The back door leads to the fully fenced private backyard. The two car garage is off the alley. The location is ideal, close to groceries, great restaurants and coffee. There are nearby entrances to Schmitz Park that cut down to Alki, too!

We look forward to answering any questions we can about this home. If we can schedule a showing or help in any way, please call.
