= Location, Location =

Only about one mile equidistant from the University of Washington main campus (a 30-minute walk or less than 10-minute bike ride) and Seattle Children's Regional Medical Center--both easily reached via the nearby Burke Gilman trail. Less than 6 miles from the Space Needle and Seattle Center; 8 miles from Safeco and Qwest Fields. There are several bus lines within a city block allowing convenient pedestrian access to all the city's sights; closest to the 30 / 74 line. Access to I-5 and SR-520 is easy for exploring the greater metropolitan and outlying areas.


= And right in the middle of gastronomic heaven! =

Famous breakfast, afternoon tea (Queen Mary Tea Room) and dinner (Pair Restaurant) are nearby, with a bounty of additional options for international, high-quality dining just a short stroll away. And a leisurely 5-minute walk down the street awaits the shopping/dining wonderland, University Village.

          Location

          Car: Not Necessary

          The nearby University of Washington offers many high-quality attractions:

          Be sure to visit the *Arboretum* while you're here! Great for a beautiful, rejuvenating hike/stroll, or *rent a canoe or rowboat* around the corner from there at the *Waterfront Activities Center *and enjoy the scenery from an aquatic perspective. Also nearby is the *University of Washington Center for Urban Horticulture* and adjacent *Union Bay Natural Area*: a public wildlife area, natural restoration laboratory, and an important habitat next to Lake Washington. At 74 acres, with 4 miles of shoreline, it is the second largest natural system left on the lake. Considered one of the best *bird-watching* sites in the city of Seattle, over 200 species of birds have been sighted here. Nice, cozy *bowling alley * also available at UW Hub building.

          *Sail Sand Point *at nearby *Magnuson Park* (direct from our home on bus #74) has great *sailing classes* for kids.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2003

          About the owner: We are an international family who travel in and out of Seattle throughout the year. We love our U.S. home dearly; with two young sons we regard Seattle as our favorite place in the States, after having traveled and lived in many parts.

          Why the Owner Chose Ravenna:
          We did not buy this as a vacation rental, but rather as our home, a base from which we must frequently travel. We appreciate the beauty, stability, and convenience of the area. The neighbors are absolutely great--kind, generous, intelligent--and rather like extended family. We often talk together about how fortunate we all are to call this wonderful neighborhood home.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          The house is within easy walking distance to many places such as U-Village, UW, Ravenna Park, Bryant School, various restaurants (Greek, Italian, French, Japanese, Thai, Burgers, Sports Pub, English Tea Room, etc), 24-hour gourmet groceries, barber shop, auto repair, toy store, yarn shop, walking and bicycling trail (Burke Gilman trail), yet the house is situated on a quiet street. 5-minute drive to Seattle Children's Hospital, or bus to NOAA / Magnuson Park.
