Last week, Curbed writer Tom Trimbath, wrote about an intriguing property in an article entitled “Bulls, Blues, and a Buddha in Ballard”. The property, located at 6408 17th Ave NW in Ballard, is listed by our team!
The 1,880 square foot Cape Cod home, built in 1918, is filled with fine home décor, creating an attractive ambience within. From the bull head motif, to the John Coltrane posters, to the Buddha statue that sits at the entrance, this is truly a unique home; “The posters probably won’t stay, but these fans of the blues have filled this Ballard home with fine decor. Maybe a stager would go that far, but they probably wouldn’t have included the bulls head motif as well” remarks Trimbath.
The home has had modern updates without interfering with the historical attributes of the house including “hardwood floors, columnar room dividers, and linteled doorways. The ceilings are boxed by beams that cross creating a bit more interest above”. These classical arrangements are beautifully contrasted with modern improvements such as updated appliances and plumbing and details such as new cabinets and backsplash in the kitchen.
Another unique feature of this property is the detached building, about the size of an ADU, that has been converted to a media room which Trimbath says allows resident movie aficionados to “close the doors and curtains, crank the volume, and hopefully no one in the house or neighborhood will be disturbed by your movie night”.
Thanks for the fabulous feature, Curbed!
