Walking up to this classic 1960’s mid-century split-level, you first note the fresh “period-perfect” paint scheme of eggshell white and a “chili-verde” green trim, it just pops!! It’s always been this color, specifically matched every time it was painted by a sentimental owner with an eye for flair.
Opening the wasabi green door, flanked by era-correct bottle glass side lights, gleaming hard woods greet you as you choose to walk up stairs, or down. That’s what is called a ‘split-entry’, it’s sort of like a “choose your own adventure” book!
If you choose upstairs, your options are a formal living room to the left, the kitchen straight ahead and bedrooms to the right. The formal living room offers hardwoods,
a huge picture window (with purported view of Mt. St. Helens), wood burning fireplace with a classic wooden mantel, and a wall of gleaming walnut paneling that opens to the dining room.
If you choose ‘straight ahead’ you enter the well-appointed and recently updated kitchen, which includes a built-in desk, a gas stove, cupboards galore, and opens to dining room with sliders to deck and back yard. The dining area is roomy with enough space for a large table, sideboard or buffet and has a new vinyl window, very cool vintage vinyl flooring.
The sliders open to a covered deck with built-in seating, and a yard that is a gardener’s dream – full of established plants from peonies to lilac, with plenty of room for your creativity too!
If you’ve chosen to venture to the right, you’ll find a long hallway with a full bathroom for family or guests, two sizable bedrooms and a large master bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower.
If, upon entry, you’ve chosen to go downstairs, to your right you will find a bedroom or office outfitted with clean lined mid-century shelving and a large legal egress daylight window; a workshop with counters, storage and direct access to the two car garage. If you have turned left at the base of the stairs, you’ll find a utilities closet with newer furnace and gas water heater, a little further and a door opens to the rumpus/living room with wood burning fireplace, fantastic paneling, outside egress door AND a finished corner stubbed in with water, sewer, electrical at counter height, gas line or 220 for stove, and existing recessed can lights JUST WAITING to become your fantastic wet-bar or kitchen!!
Further to the left is a large bedroom with cool mid-century green carpet, built-in storage and a ground-level egress windows!
All in all, swinging 60’s pad offers room for family or fun, whatever YOU need it to be and does it with ultimate usability and consummate class!
