Sleek, sexy and sophisticated wouldn’t be the words I’d use to describe Park Avenue on Bainbridge Island. This isn’t New York, so don’t get the wrong idea…
This little rambler just went up for sale on Park Avenue here.
This section of Park Avenue here backs up on the upscale street, Alder. Past Alder you’re into Wing Point Golf Club territory.
I imagine our Park Avenue will become desirable, due to the close-in location and elbow room between neighbors. (Houses for sale at the moment in the surrounding streets are listed between $849 and over 1.3 million).
This 1,272 square foot rambler is a redo gone right in my opinion. Set on a large flat lot, the new kitchen sparkles with fresh white beadboard-style cabinets, black counter tiles and small emerald green inlaid tiles. Hard wood floors, crown molding, and solid wooden interior doors add to the ambiance. The three bedrooms are small, sixties rambler style rooms so don’t expect soaring vaulted mega rooms here.
It’s close to the ferry and the ferry feeder bus reportedly stops right by the house.
Most of what I’ve looked at around this price needs cosmetic work, and even though this one’s in the high range per square foot compared to some, to my mind it’s got the sophistication of the best of the new condos in Winslow, without the homeowner’s dues and with a big dose of precious privacy.
I would venture to call the interior of this Park Avenue address sleek, sexy and sophisticated–in the New York sense.
