Property description

Stay in one of Seattle's great neighborhoods.

Fully-furnished studio apartment in a handsome brick building. Each unit features a generously-sized bedroom with sitting area, work desk, kitchenette and private bathroom. The kitchenette offers a sink, under-counter refrigerator, microwave, electric kettle, and coffee maker.

The ground-level unit is wheelchair accessible and has a polished concrete floor; the second-floor unit is carpeted. Both units have hydronic, in-floor heating, ceiling fans, and are naturally ventilated. The bathrooms have walk-in showers. Linens and basic household items are provided. There's a washer and dryer on the premises for guest use.

Each unit comes with free cable TV and wifi. Parking is available on-street at no cost. Because of our excellent transit connections (bus and light rail) and neighborhood ZipCar and Car-to-Go services, you may find a car unnecessary.

We have bicycles available for guest use. An adjacent courtyard is available for sitting out, and the ground-floor unit has an adjoining private patio.

Columbia City is one of Seattle's historic landmark districts. It offers a compact business district known for charming buildings, great restaurants, a neighborhood cinema, and a thriving arts community.

Frequent and dependable light rail service from the airport and to downtown. Light rail station is only 4 blocks away.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I developed this property as part of a decade-long love affair with the Columbia City neighborhood. After a career in civil engineering and consulting, I've put all my energies into community development and historic preservation. My wife, Shelley, and I have lived in Southeast Seattle for over 20 years, and we get great enjoyment sharing our love of the area.

Why the Owner Chose Columbia City:
There are very few lodging options for people looking to stay in Southeast Seattle. The New Shirley lends itself perfectly to the visiting relatives and friends of our Columbia City neighbors, as well as to Seattle visitors wanting a 'neighborhood' experience.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Our guests, even those returning multiple times, always seem very excited by all the choices within a short stroll... the many restaurants, coffee shops, gallery, bookstore, cinema, farmers market, library.
