This beautiful home, with skylights and large windows, is very bright--a real joy when you're living in Seattle. Also, while it takes 15 minutes to get to downtown, you'd think you were living in the middle of the woods because of the ravine in the back. The whole living area as well as dining room looks out on woods--I get tricked into feeling that I'm on retreat. The fenced yard is very large, and there's a large trampoline for exercise or just plain fun.
The house is on a cul-de-sac and so no passing traffic. And while it is close to some major routes (and shops, in Wedgwood as well as Lake City), you don't hear traffic noise. I really like the layout, too, since the living area is half a flight of steps higher than the hallway where the front entrance is, along with the three bedrooms. And then another half flight down, you've got an enormous all-purpose room, with sliding doors to a terrace, leading out to the yard. Another terrace above it is accessed by sliding doors in the living room.
Also, it's a five-minute drive to Matthews Beach on Lake Washington! And a two-minute drive takes you to the Burke Gilman Trail, alongside the Lake.
It can be furnished or unfurnished. My daughter and I are going abroad for a year.
