Ballard house description

This delightful retreat is located on the main floor of a turn-of-the-last-century house in historic old Ballard. It is a complete, fully functional home with a fully equipped kitchen. Nothing is shared with the upper unit except laundry facilities in the shared entry. Acoustic insulation insures that you will hear little if anything from your upstairs neighbor.

Ballard has everything you could want. Living in this home, it's all at your doorstep! Within 1 block you can enjoy espresso and some of the best bread and French pastries in Seattle. Within a 6 block radius you can enjoy an upscale movie house, a diverse array of restaurants, shops and the fabulous year-round Sunday Farmer’s Market offering fresh locally grown produce and products. If your visit is job-related, you will also have access to a post office, FedEx, Kinko’s and newly built-green public library. A personal fax machine is available upon request.

A detailed renovation was completed in 2008, in keeping with the home's original character. Wide plank oak floors extend throughout, including the new kitchen. The kitchen is cook-friendly and there is an herb garden for your enjoyment. Guests can chat with the chef while sitting at the breakfast table. The main dining room can seat six and there is still room for a sofa. Barn doors separate the dining room from the very spacious living room. It can be closed off for privacy and has two queen sized high end, no-bar hide-a-beds and a 26 inch flat screen TV. There is another queen sized sleigh bed in the private bedroom, with lots of drawer space and ample storage.

The acoustic insulation is amazing! This home is very peaceful and quiet.
