Located just five minutes north of downtown Seattle on Queen Anne Hill, this comfortable home sits in a quiet, leafy area just four blocks from all the shopping, restaurants and services this neighborhood has to offer. It is located with multiple hospitals and care facilities within 10 minutes. Walking is what guests do here, whether it's around the hill enjoying views of downtown, the Space Needle, Mount Rainier, the Olympic and Cascade mountain ranges and Puget Sound, or simply taking in the sights and sounds of the streets, homes, parks, and people of this community.
Downtown is an easy ten minute bus ride on the Number Three or Four Metro, where world class shopping awaits, and you're only five minutes away from the biotech, research, office and retail hub of South Lake Union. Enjoy a Seattle Mariners or Seahawks game, a play or opera at the Seattle Center. Take a walk to the waterfront, where a Washington State ferry will take you across Puget Sound to Bainbridge Island and lunch and shopping in Winslow. Venture on the high speed ferry to Victoria, British Columbia for the day. A car is not necessary for a stay here. Taxi or shuttle from the airport to the house and walk or use public transportation for all your city adventures.
At the end of the day, you'll return to this comfortable and extensively remodeled two bedroom 1920 Craftsman bungalow that has a quiet and very private professionally landscaped backyard garden. High end furnishings fill the home. Cook in the kitchen (gas range and convection oven), barbeque on the deck or eat in one of the ten restaurants ('How to Cook a Wolf
recently reviewed in Sunset Magazine, is three blocks away) and bars available within a ten minute walk. Several takeout stores provide an excellent variety of meals to take home, and A & J Meats (three blocks away) has one of the best selections of fish and meat in the city. And since you're in Seattle, there are three coffee shops within a five minute walk.
This is the place for whatever brings you to Seattle: a business conference, family reunion, the University of Washington (ten minutes) or Seattle Pacific University (five minutes) or just a vacation week in Seattle, where the sun does shine in our Mediterranean-like summers. But bring your umbrella just in case.
NOTE: We are very careful with the guests we rent to. This is a residential neighborhood and we are respectful of the neighbors and their peace and quiet.
