Redmond home near Microsoft campus – Sold Full Price
If you are looking for a Redmond home near Microsoft, not a few miles away but just around the corner and down the street, look no further.
Open House, Saturday and Sunday, September 8 and 9, 1 to 4 pm. Tucked away in a cul-de-sac, this classic tri-level Redmond home is two blocks from the Microsoft campus. The main floor features vaulted ceilings and an open floor plan with views of the upstairs den & the downstairs family room. A river rock chimney with gas fireplace links the three floors. The yard frames the home with decks, lawn, garden bed, benches, hot tub, and space for RV parking. The PVC roof is only six years old. Marymoor Park is just down the hill and Redmond Town Center one mile away.
Redmond Home Near Microsoft: Interior
Tri-level homes are rare and popular. This home is a textbook example. The open main floor, which can be opened up further, offers the person in the kitchen an unobstructed view of the downstairs family room and the upstairs office. The number of stairs to take up or down are fewer than in a two-story home. Al that in a home near Microsoft.
Redmond Home Near Microsoft: Exterior
What makes this (back)yard special is that it frames the home on three sides. From the inside, you are always connected to the outside. The dining area overlooks a deck with a lawn and garden space behind it. A gate separates it from the front yard. A walkway and steps with benches lead down to the large deck with more benches and the hot tub. The downstairs family room connects to this area. Around the corner on the south side of the home, a large expanse covered with cobblestone pavers could be used to park an extra vehicle or an RV. Empty, it invites for a game of soccer or hopscotch.
