Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I have lived in Seattle most of my life with a 4 year stint in Mexico which had the most positive impact on my life besides my 3 month tour of Europe. It opened up my world in ways no other medium can. I have seen many many changes to my city, most for the good and even though I complain about the gray, damp, cold, windy, rainy, dark months between November and May, there is so much natural beauty all around us from the Cascades, Mt. Rainier, Olympic mountains and the national parks they reside in that I constantly have to remind myself would not exist without the aforementioned weather pattern that ALL OF US like to complain about! If you've never been to the San Juans, make the trip, you won't regret it! Then there's the city life with all of the farmer's markets, music scene, amazing restaurants, parks, trails and beaches within minutes from here. I also love the diversity of people, language, culture and the fact that Seattle ranks #2 for most literate city in the United States!

Why the Owner Chose Capitol Hill:
In 2000 I sold my downtown salon and bought this building in order to build a one chair salon that I work in Sunday-Tuesday and rent out to another hairdresser Wednesday-Saturday. I live in one unit and have another 3-BD unit that I also rent furnished short term. Although this unit has been rented short term for 11 years, I've had 4 guests extend their stays for up to 2 years each! If you need 6 bedrooms you can rent both units.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
One of the things I love about this property is it's proximity to everything. We are minutes away from I-5, 520, I-90 and downtown, yet we are surrounded by lush landscaping that is maintained year round and can enjoy beautiful sunsets beyond Lake Union, Downtown and Olympic mountain views.
