You can reside on the top two floors of the home and leverage the lower level as an Airbnb to cover your mortgage payments. Or, enjoy the entire home for yourself. The choice is yours.
Character and charm abound in this beautifully maintained residence, built in 1900 and fully remodeled in 2006. The classic covered porch invites you inside to discover many original historical details, including Douglas fir floors, 10-foot-tall ceilings, exposed brick, and the original staircase and front door. Relax alongside the gas fireplace in the welcoming living room, or plan your next dinner party in the open concept kitchen & dining room. The gourmet chefs kitchen boasts handsome Wedgewood cabinetry, custom-made concrete countertops, and upscale stainless steel appliances, including a vented Viking range and a refrigerator and dishwasher by KitchenAid.
From the open kitchen, a brick archway overlooks the stunning sunroom/family room, an extraordinary indoor-outdoor space wrapped in walls of windows. French doors open to the delightful private yard, where cedar fencing, landscaping, and a flagstone patio welcome alfresco gatherings under the apple tree that offers a fruitful bounty each year. A powder room completes the main level. Head upstairs to discover two bedrooms with outstanding views, including a primary bedroom with a balcony overlooking the landscaped yard. The master bathroom features a steam shower, an oversized jetted tub, and a heated floor. The second bedroom features Flatiron views from the front porch and a classic private bathroom, also with heated floors.
On the lower level, the legal, licensed Airbnb generates $65,000 annually in passive Airbnb income. This space features a private entrance, a living/dining area, a spacious kitchenette, a bedroom with a built-in desk, and a bathroom with a frameless bench shower and plenty of natural light. If you're not interested in running an Airbnb, the lower level of this home provides a private and luxurious guest suite for your family and friends. Additionally, there is an impressive office area that would be perfect for a home office.
This home's extensive updates include new electrical, plumbing, mechanicals, and windows; a whole-house industrial cooling fan; and an integrated digital audio system with 34 speakers.
