3 bed/1.75 bath Mid-Century Rambler in the marine town of Des Moines, just outside of Seattle.

Enter to original hardwood floors, a painted brick fireplace, spacious windows, and a formal dining area lit by a vintage blown glass chandelier and leading out to the covered patio – ready for summer bar-b-ques. The bright and airy kitchen is filled with light from the skylight and blown glass pendant lighting. The kitchen offers birch cabinetry, a tile backsplash, stainless-steel appliances and ample counter space. The spacious master bedroom opens to the gardens and a skylight in the master bath to lull you awake as you start your day.

The sun-filled fully-fenced backyard and gardens offers lovingly tended rhododendrons, plenty of level yard, an adorable garden shed showcasing a pop of teal, an expansive arbor waiting for grapevines, clematis or wisteria covering a cement patio just waiting for a glass of lemonade in the sunshine. Mere blocks to North Hill Elementary, and less than 25 minutes to Seattle, come home to the Alabaster Rambler.
