Description

Nestled on an expansive 8,000 square foot lot that feels like your very own private park, this special home is a true sanctuary. Every window frames a green vista, offering unparalleled tranquility and a true sense of seclusion. The verdant surroundings provide a backdrop of mature trees and carefully curated gardens that create a natural oasis. Whether you're enjoying your morning coffee or unwinding in the evening with a glass of wine by the fire, you'll be enveloped by nature's beauty at every turn. This is more than just a home; it's a story and a peaceful retreat where privacy and greenery thrive. History abounds at this very unique property – few owners here have taken meticulous care of this 1918 Craftsman in the coveted Denny Blaine neighborhood.

Serene. Private. Splendid.

Welcome to a true gem. From the moment you make your way in at the corner entry to this double lot on a double-dead-end location, you feel as though you are in the most private of locations. Built in 1918, this charming Craftsman bungalow stands as a testament to timeless artistry and thoughtful stewardship.

As you step inside, you'll immediately notice the warmth and character that define this home.

Take in the original stained glass detail, wood burning fireplace and window seating areas in this wonderfully welcoming main level. A handsome stone-fronted woodburning fireplace serves as the centerpiece of the living room, offering both warmth and a rustic, inviting ambiance. The living room is a masterpiece of thoughtful design, having been opened up in a thoughtful remodel to include a comfortable sitting area, perfect for relaxation or reading. Custom bookshelves line this wall, and hidden behind one of them is a painting by a highly regarded previous owner/artist, Neil Meitzler—a delightful secret waiting to be discovered, perhaps?* The room retains its historical charm with original stained glass details that cast colorful patterns of light throughout the space. Adjacent to the sitting area is a versatile dining room, ideal for both intimate dinners and larger gatherings. The kitchen is also a delightful blend of old and new, purposefully remodeled to honor the original architecture while incorporating modern conveniences. It features a casual eating area perfect for morning breakfasts overlooking a south garden area. The Heath Ceramic tile backsplash adds a touch of timeless artistry, complementing the PaperStone countertops known for their durability and eco-friendly properties. Stainless steel appliances complete the space, providing a sleek, modern touch without compromising the home's historical charm.

The main level also boasts a luxurious 3/4 European "wet style" bathroom, designed for both functionality and aesthetic appeal. The bathroom features elegant Heath Ceramic tiles for the walls and the installation of a Toto low-flow toilet emphasizes both comfort and sustainability, reflecting a commitment to eco-friendly living. This thoughtfully designed space offers a spa-like experience complete with heated floors, blended beautifully with the original architecture. Rounding out this level is an idyllic den – overlooking nothing but green, this charming room is truly light-filled with both western and northern exposure. Regardless of use, this space will be an all-time favorite here.

The second level of this home hosts two inviting bedrooms, each a tranquil retreat designed for rest and relaxation. Plus a very special family room with vaulted ceilings, the perfect space for unwinding, entertaining or movie nights, with large windows overlooking a lush greenbelt area. This serene view brings the beauty of the outdoors in, creating a peaceful ambiance. Imagine creating a primary suite here perhaps?

Added in 1982, the full bathroom on this level is a true highlight, featuring a beautiful clawfoot tub that presents a touch of vintage charm. A specific architect, Larry Johnson, was hired for this addition due to his intense focus on Craftsman preservation. With zero privacy issues, the bathroom is situated in a way that makes you feel like you are in a treehouse, surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature. It's the perfect place to soak away the day's stresses and enjoy a moment of tranquility.

Venture down to the unfinished daylight basement, a space brimming with potential. Multiple windows flood the area with natural light, highlighting the impressive ceiling height and the roominess of the space. With direct access to the outside, this basement offers endless possibilities for customization and finishing. Whether you envision a home office, gym, additional living area, or creative studio, this space is ready to be transformed to suit your needs if desired. Plus, the basement has already been Earthquake retrofitted and asbestos-abated, providing peace of mind and a solid foundation for future renovations.

OUTDOOR

The outdoor areas of this home are nothing short of magnificent, offering a variety of spaces to explore and enjoy. The pristine lawn is perfect for play and relaxation, while the beautifully landscaped garden beds provide a riot of color throughout the seasons. Rhododendron lovers, be alerted! Terraced levels create intriguing nooks and crannies, leading you through a journey of discovery in your own backyard / private park. Among these is a delightful "secret garden," a secluded spot perfect for quiet reflection or a hidden retreat. Be amazed.

NEARBY

Location is everything, and this home truly excels. Situated just a half mile from the heart of Madrona, you'll have easy access to a vibrant community filled with charming shops, delectable dining options, and quaint cafes. Be delighted by boutique retailers like Hitchcock, glassybaby and A Mano. Within only a few blocks one has a multitude of culinary options between dine-in and bring-home: Red Cow, Vendemmia, Hi-Spot Café, East Anchor Seafood, Bottlehouse, Mr. West Coffee, and Mad Candy to name only some!

In the opposite direction, also just a half mile away, lies Madison Valley. Whether you're in the mood for a leisurely stroll, a shopping spree, or a fine dining experience, you have the best of both worlds right at your doorstep with shops (Red Ticking, Sarah Alexander, Emry Boutique, to name a few), amenities such as Kitchen & Market and restaurants (The Harvest Vine, Jae’s Asian Bistro, Café Flora.)

AND BEYOND

Despite its serene, park-like setting, this home is remarkably well-connected to the city. The proximity to light rail and extensive bus routes ensures easy and convenient public transportation options, making commuting a breeze. Additionally, quick access to the 520 freeway means that the bustling downtown Seattle and the tech hubs of Bellevue and Redmond are just minutes away. This central location offers the perfect balance: a peaceful, private retreat that feels miles away from the hustle and bustle, yet with all the conveniences of urban living right at your fingertips.

IN CONCLUSION

Once in a while a home comes along that is so truly one-of-a-kind. 3330 East John is one of them. This property is a rare find in one of Seattle's most desirable neighborhoods, offering a unique blend of historical charm, modern convenience and a sanctuary-like lot where privacy and greenery abound. Don't miss the opportunity to make this timeless treasure your own.
