Apparently built and occupied by then-owner of Simpson Timber, who used very good wood. (Basement originally held full private barroom, which I suspect dated back to Prohibition!)
There has been no smoking inside the house for at least 47 years. Freshly painted, freshly carpeted, freshly cleaned, with virtually every problem we could spot attended to, this is close to a turn-key home.
Montlake is a quiet residential neighborhood south of the University of Washington, nestled between parks (Interlaken Park, Montlake Playfield, Washington Park Arboretum) and water (Portage Bay, Montlake Cut, Lake Washington). It consists mostly of good-quality, single-family homes with lawns or gardens. A small business district features a bike shop, a restaurant, a pub, a public library, a really nice convenience store/deli, a dry cleaner, and a coffee shop. Other nonresidential occupants include Montlake Elementary School -- consistently ranked among the city's best -- the Museum of History and Industry, a quite decent medium-size grocery store/deli, a gas station/garage, and St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church, which hosts a popular festival each summer.
For football fans, Husky Stadium is just north of the Montlake Bridge, within easy walking distance for most people. As for nature, few people in Montlake are more than a few blocks from a park or body of water.
No major grocery store is within reasonable walking distance, but two Trader Joes, three Safeways, three QFCs, and one Whole Foods. are little more than 10 minutes away by car. Two Costcos are less than 30 minutes away. Outside of rush hour, you can reach either the University Village Shopping Center or the International District in around 15 minutes.
This may seem morbid, but Montlake is a good place for medical emergencies as well. With the UW Medical Center just to the north, and Group Health, Swedish, Virginia Mason, and Harborview not far to the south, you are likely to reach a good hospital in short order.
While Montlake is becoming increasingly popular with high-earning professionals -- software executives, doctors, and the like -- it hasn't lost its ordinary Seattle neighborhood feel. Its central location, ready accessibility, outstanding natural amenities, architectural charm, and lack of pretension make it a great place to live.

Popularity on Zillow
Market guideZillow predicts Montlake home values will rise 5.9% next year, compared to a 3.9% rise for Seattle as a whole. Among Montlake homes, this home is valued 48.6% more than the midpoint (median) home, but is valued 43.6% less per square foot.
Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Montlake, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 9.2% greater than in Seattle, and 15.5% lower than the national average. This higher local number may prevent Montlake home values from rising as quickly as other regions in Seattle.
