In Midtown, a 2003 townhome in one of the neighborhood’s pioneer gated-off blocks appears to be a step up — actually, several steps up, particularly from the dual entry threads of treads (top). Interior staircases lead to levels 3 and 4. The property last changed hands in 2005, at $260K, and asks $350K in the listing posted last week. Located at the north end of Midtown, the home faces west (and east) a block or 2 south of the Pierce Elevated. Access to Hwy. 288 on the cross street is a straight shot east.
Level 2’s main living area amasses a balcony, Quartzite fireplace surround, a roomy powder room . . .
and a kitchen with dining spot. It, too, has been bumped up, a step above its adjacent spaces:
The 2,293-sq.-ft. home hugs the fence line on the development’s east side. This balcony perched above the front door looks west, across the intersection of interior driveways entered from gates on the west and north.
The master suite’s dormir domain is on level 3:
It also has a balcony, in this case looking east, where vacant lots appear to be awaiting further townhome farming and retail redevelopment:
In the master bathroom, vanity capacity stretches 12 ft., as does the nowhere-to-hide mirror:
Another stairwell . . .
tops out level 4, which caps a corner of the townhome. The turret-like space is not the other bedroom in the listing particulars:
For that, head down to ground level . . .
near the back door, which shares its fenced walkway with the “yard” remaining on the 1,831-sq.-ft. lot:
