Craftsman boasts Old World charm and modern-day glamour

They say not to judge on appearances, but this home might change minds. The charm of Old World architecture and the flair of modern decor make for one dynamic duo in this stunning 1913 Seattle Craftsman. If the lush front yard does not catch the eye, skip up the steps to the outstanding brick and wood porch. Did someone mention a pot of hot coffee?
Even though we want to, we better not linger too long on the porch — there's so much to drool over inside. Yes, you can bring your coffee with you. This five-bedroom, four-bath abode boasts 2,980 square feet and plenty of delights. Let's roll on in!
Welcome to the formal living room, which accentuates the home's wood paneling and box beam ceilings, and the windows are an excellent reminder that this home resides in the Pacific Northwest. Lighting, mirrors and gleaming floors give it a lively feeling — who wants to throw a party?
Sneak off to the side of the living room, where the clinker brick fireplace makes this nook the perfect spot to daydream or sip a glass of something special. In other words, indulge yourself. 
In the dining room, the natural light streams in and mixes well with the more modern decor — the simplicity of the table and chairs leave room for one to adore the woodwork.
Oh, the kitchen makes good use of its space, so the dishwasher can peek outside while the cook can concoct a delicious dish and turn to serve it at the swank little bar. The wood tone shifts in here, which creates a sunny place to start the day.
The window over the bed seals the deal for this dreamy but demure bedroom. It balances a few modern touches with the old-school radiator and the barely-there lighting.
When the mood is casual and quiet, retreat to this room. With those shelves it could be a modern version of a library or a spot to present your collectibles. All that and a new-meets-old way to keep warm included.
Welcome to the party room! It makes the most of the modern vibe, adding vibrant dark accents for fun. An artful mini kitchen means no long trips away from the festivities and the patio doors fold open, inviting friends and the outdoors in.
This just might be a picture-perfect party room, fashionable but still comfortable, with plenty of room to mingle and maybe even dance. 
Can it be a party without a fire pit and a couple of hot chairs? This house really knows how to please, from its formal living to its sun-soaking patio. Who would ever want to leave, right?
If this tour made you swoon, why not share it with some friends. See you next time.
