Amazing Remodel in Ballard (over 3000 sq/ft)

8 03 2010

This is just a stunning home inside. There are so many features this home holds with Built Green features just being a few. Wood-wrapped energy efficient windows, Paperstone counters and Marmoleum flooring, (using 100% natural ingredients) to the energy efficient gas water and heating.

There is a list of upgrades that are nearly too long to list, but I’ll name a few. In the home, you’ll find feature cards pointing these out, among others. To secure against earthquakes, this home was fully retrofitted. In 2007, the entire upstairs took on a new look as a master suite. That’s correct, the whole upper floor, with two lengthy dormers provide a habitute that is so unique, spacious, elegant yet intriguing with it’s exposed brick and architecturally pleasing lines. The master bath is a 5 piece, with a 6′ long jetted tub with new, crisp white subway title surrounding it, as well as a separate shower. The master bath’s vanity features a unique basin brought back from Mexico specifically for this home. In addition, there is a walk-in closet and very spacious reading area and even a nook in the corner for writing stationary.

Oh, and lest I forget, you get peek-a-boo views of Mt. Rainier from here too.

The main floor features the first of two kitchens – this is an outstanding kitchen too. So spacious that Martha Stewart could house all her kitchen accoutrements easily. And the gas cooking center also includes a warming station and nothing-short-of-amazing microwave. Seriously! The garbage and recycling is stealthly hidden in it’s own sliding cabinet across from the large Amoire Fridge/freezer. Did I mention these were stainless?

The kitchen opens to both the dining area and entertainment sized deck out back. From the dining area, the floor circles around to the living room in front, then down a hallway are two bedrooms, a full bathroom and the stairs to the master suite.

Access to the lower level is past the kitchen’s library. Descend from there to enter the laundry suite which includes full size stacking washer/dryer mix, a basin and also a folding table. Plenty of room in here for an additional fridge/freezer and shelving. Off the laundry, you can enter the den or the family room.

It gets unique once again – the family room contains a full kitchen with finishings that makes my kitchen jealous. When the current owners were remodeling the upper floors, they comfortably lived on this level. In addition to these rooms, there is a beautiful 3/4 bathroom with tile work, lighting and paint choices that make you feel like you were in an Italian villa.

Out back, the yard is fully fenced and off to the side-rear is a detatched garage.

This home features so many smaller details as well that you’ll just have to stop by an explore!
