Property Information

This stunning, classic, 3-story 1911 English Tudor revival/craftsman house stands out on a block full of lovely homes, both for the careful maintenance of its original style and for its custom updating. Sit and enjoy your lunch on the covered front porch facing the grassy, treed boulevard; greet neighbors and respond to the admiring glances and ongoing comments from strollers walking up the hill to Manito Park.

The outside features include cedar siding, Tudor beams & stucco and clinker brick accents. The leaded diamonds in the upper portion of the double-hung windows sparkle in the filtered sunlight passing through the boulevard’s gigantic sycamore trees. The house is surrounded by well-established perennials and lawn, with a sprinkling system insuring easy care. Inside, the main floor includes a welcoming entry hall; living & dining rooms with quarter-sawn oak floors and original, refinished, wild-grained Douglas fir beams, woodwork, pocket doors and built-ins. Note the divided-light bookcase, custom leaded-glass doors and the polished brass hardware. Rewired classic lighting fixtures connect to an updated electrical panel. Think winter, and sip tea before the original fireplace, now gas fired, and watch the snow fall over your outdoor winter lights on the two front porches. The lighted built-in buffet sparkles in the dining room–the perfect place to display your most loved treasures. Add a big dining room table and host a multi-generation Thanksgiving gathering. Moving through the pocket door to the large, open-concept, modern kitchen, cooking is a pleasure here, with custom built book-matched oak cabinets with pull out drawers, a huge pantry wall, and matching appliances built into two islands. The cooks are part of the action, with only a table-level breakfast bar dividing the kitchen and family room. The built-in computer desk and the book and media shelving await your screens; add a big couch or comfortable chairs and look out the giant windows to admire the backyard garden and the serpentine brick-walled parking area.

A pair of matched doors in the kitchen/family room lead to a nicely remodeled bathroom with a shower and to a carpeted stairway to the lower level basement. The finished, daylight basement holds a walkout 4th bedroom. You will make good use of the carpeted basement recreation room (ping pong, pool, exercise room or playroom) and you will love the spaciousness of the laundry/hanging/folding area. The updated electrical panel is in the tool/workbench room (tiled floor). A full third of the basement is a storage room (line it with 8 ceiling-high portable shelves) which also holds the boiler for the radiators. The quiet and clean heating system is run by the gas-fired boiler, and the newer central AC (installed in the attic) allows you to keep the windows closed year-round, eliminating pollen and dust.

Upstairs, on the top floor, you’ll find the master bedroom which overlooks the boulevard, with an adjoining dressing room. Down the hall are two other bedrooms, both with big windows and large closets. The newly remodeled bathroom (Jacuzzi, subway tile & quartz countertops) is a real joy. The bonus on this floor is a small, windowed, air-conditioned sleeping porch (imagine snoozing under the ponderosa pines accompanied by squirrels and birds).

Outside you will feel at peace sitting on the backyard brick patio, set among ponderosas, rhodys, azaleas, honeysuckle, a huge climbing hydrangea and many other perennials. Add a table, plug in a light string and a fountain and enjoy your secret garden surrounded by a custom-designed cedar fence. No plumbing worries: there’s a new sewer line to the street. This 1911 house is pristine, first class and ready for you.  Private buyers and buyers’ agents welcome.

What I like about this house: This vintage home sits on a quiet, divided street in one of Spokane’s most desirable neighborhoods. Elementary schools are within walking distance, and middle and high school buses pick up at the end of the block (each just a mile away). Manito Park, Spokane’s giant showcase park, is at the top of the block, and Cannon Hill Park, with a pond, playground and playing fields, is 3 blocks northwest. Comstock Park’s outdoor pool, tennis & pickleball courts and playing fields are 8 blocks south. Downtown is a 30-minute walk or 5-minute drive; the airport is 12 minutes away. You will love the neighbors: long-time residents, young professionals and some younger families with kids who are buying in as the next generation to live on the 21st Avenue hill. Lucky the next owners to call this beautiful house home. Private buyers and buyers’ agents welcome.
