What’s all that work that’s been going on at the front gate of Broadmoor?

Some of you Madison Park, Washington Park, and Broadmoor residents might be wondering what’s all that work that’s been going on at the front gate of the Broadmoor neighborhood for the past 3 weeks? Well, it’s nothing more than some much needed tuckpointing and brick replacement. For those that don’t know what tuckpointing is, here’s an explanation: in building construction, technique of finishing masonry joints with a fine, pointed ridge of mortar, for decorative purposes, instead of the usual slightly convex finish in ordinary masonwork. The term is sometimes used for pointing (q.v.) as in masonry repair.

The project is set to finish next week.

Dead Eagle’s Lover Finds a New Mate!

If you were one of the many 520 commuters last summer, you probably remember Eddie, the friendly bald eagle who was frequently seen perched on lamp posts along the bridge last August. Unfortunately Eddie has been a little too adventurous and while flying low flew right in front of a bus and was killed.  Since he was killed, many have been wondering what will happen to Eva, his newly widowed mate.

Bald Eagles typically have one mate for life, would she abandon their nest above the Broadmoor Country Club, or stay put solo? Not Eva! She’s been on the prowl, and already found a new mate who’s nesting with her in the same nest she once shared with Eddie. Both birds have been spotted bringing food to their offspring, and birdwatchers in and around the Seattle area couldn’t be happier at the birds determination to carry on. For more information on the Eagles whereabouts, visit the Seattle Times.

Blumes Broadmoor Home Gains Presidential Spot Light

After hosting President Obama and around 75 additional guests in Madrona yesterday for the Presidential Brunch, Ann and Bruce Blume’s home has been glistening in the National spot light. Locals were giddy with excitement at the possibility of an Obama spotting, traffic was a little slow going in and out of the neighborhood and secret service lined the streets, and patrolled the area surrounding the Blume’s residence. But the press has also brought to our attention that the Blumes are not only getting major publicity for the Madrona area for hosting the President, but also because they are currently selling one of their properties in Broadmoor. They’re selling their 1941 Colonial home for $2,950,000 and it’s truly noted as one of the best homes in the neighborhood. For more information on the President’s visit to Seattle, or the Blume’s listing, visit the Madrona Seattle blog.
