First Time Home Buyers: under $350,000 Greenwood bungalow in Seattle

Click on blog title above to view listing photos and details of this little red bungalow

Crisp and clean two bedroom one bath home with basement for expansion. Asking price of this place is $349,900 and it offers move-in ready access to all Greenwood and Crown Hill has to offer. Formal living room, dining room, hardwood floors and clean tiled kitchen and bath. Patio and yard.

Of this home's neighborhood, Lynn Steinberg wrote in the Seattle PI, "The beauty of Greenwood is in its contrasts. It's a kind of old-fangled neighborhood with a trendy edge, a place where coffee shops mix with espresso bars, where young families live among senior citizens...In Greenwood, it is still possible to buy a little bungalow on a quiet street without breaking the bank, or open a small business with little more than a dream and watch it thrive in the shadow of chains and superstores... This is a community that comes together for block parties and tree plantings, for holiday caroling and Seafair parades, a neighborhood that is redefining itself as a destination for arts and antique hounds who patronize the growing number of shops, galleries and cafes along the main drags. It sits just north of Phinney Ridge and the Woodland Park Zoo, and though it has its own flavor and identity, Greenwood's commercial district overlaps Phinney's and the two communities do much of their neighborhood planning together."
