This cozy home was originally owned by a famous local bandleader during the 40's and it's fun to imagine how the musicians might have gathered in the Great Room that he built for jam sessions and parties. The acoustics do seem to enhance the music we play. With two Master suites there's plenty of privacy, and the third bedroom allows for another couple on the third floor. Two full baths; one with a jetted tub and a Powder Room on the Main floor are newly remodeled. There's a living room with Granite Fireplace on one side of the kitchen and the Great Room is on the other. Both fireplaces have been recently finished with new Marble & Granite.
We've enjoyed many family gatherings in the oak furnished dining room that can easily accommodate eight for dinner. The front yard is partially enclosed allowing privacy and ambiance in the covered Lanai which features 'musical note' tiles on the floor, which is another feature left by the bandleader.

This home was purchased so that we could spend time in the City of Spokane without having to drive home after a day or an evening on the town. Having just finished the remodeling project, we felt it was ready to share with others who might enjoy the history & ambiance as much as we have.
How nice it is to walk to the grocery store or Starbucks in the morning before breakfast for some freshly baked bread OR to walk to our favorite local restaurant called Vintages 611 down Grand Blvd. on the way to town. Driving to the theatre, restaurants, or sporting events is never a chore with available parking easy to find.
