ESTATE GROUNDS DETAILS
Like glades in the forest, spaces have been carved out of the arboreal yard for gathering and recreation. On the south side fronting the park is an old brick terrace and sunlit, automatically irrigated lawn with long, unobstructed sight lines across the park to the University District, Capitol Hill and downtown Seattle. The presence of the park prohibits nearby development and so protects the endless vistas.
A second lawn on the east, buffering the two residences, is wide enough for badminton, volleyball, bocce or croquet. These large-scale outdoor spaces offer you flexible uses including concerts and weddings, multi-generational family barbecues and formal receptions, with tables and chairs dotting the circular driveway.
If your goals include accommodating additional family or community, The Maple Leaf Parkfront Estate Feasibility Package demonstrates how the rare estate might be expanded – through as few as one or two new cottages, or into a larger development of 10 dwellings, comprising 5 larger homes plus 5 cottages. A survey and feasibility study, both completed in 2016, are available to show you how.
