Want nature and the city? The best of both worlds as many would say… Well, Seattle is the right place except when it comes to housing costs. We may have just found the exception – a modern treehouse that was just listed in the city for less than $600,000.
The home is located in North Seattle near Haller Lake, a neighborhood just slightly further up I5 from Northgate. There’s a golf course nearby, several schools as well as grocery stores.
As this is Seattle, the listing recommends using the home as a rental, fixer, flipper or tear down. We on the other hand, recommend that someone gets creative with the homes good bones. Built in 1951, the home features a simple, minimal and clean layout. With three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,150 square feet of space, the home is cozy.
We say it’s a “treehouse” because of the homes location among dense foliage and the fact that house sits above it, providing you with perfect green space overlook. What’s more, the home boasts a huge entertainment deck with a privacy barrier. Down below and surrounding the home you’ll find lots of great spaces for gardening & landscaping.
The catch here is that the home is a bit outdated and does have some oddities, that being said it does have good bones and could be mindfully transformed by the right buyer. So if you have a little extra cash burning a hole in your pocket and the desire to get creative, this home could be the right one for you.
The Seattle home is currently listed for $549,042 by Summit Properties NW LLC.
