Year Purchased: 1989
About the owner: I purchased the home in 1989 and have enjoyed many family celebrations, dinner parties and gatherings of friends in this warm and charming home.
As a profession I consult, implement and support large scale business software systems for clients in Washington state.
Personally I have an interest in aquiring and restoring older homes. My father and grandfather were designers and builders of large homes and introduced me to the craft. My most recent project purchased in 2010 is a grand 1907 three story craftsman in the Leschi neighborhood overlooking downtown where I reside now.
Why the Owner Chose Ravenna: The charming neighborhood and central but quiet location. It is close to downtown and everything that makes Seattle a world class city: The Pike Place Market, Elliott Bay waterfront , Pioneer Square, the Space Needle, Experience Music Project and art exhibits including the new Dale Chihuly glass studio located at Seattle Center. So many opportunities close by for sightseeing and enjoying the city.
The University of Washington campus sports stadium and hospital are within walking distance. On campus events, graduations, theater, art and college sports are at your fingertips. Many choices of local resturants are just blocks away.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Start your morning with a leisurely walk or run along wooded park trails in Ravenna Park. Finish off with a short walk to our local cozy and historic Boulevard Grocery for a fresh ground gourmet coffee drink and baked goods. It is located on the Ravenna Boulevard greenway designed by the Olmsted brothers (think Central Park in New York City).
If this home is booked or you need more space check out my other luxury property located close to the Woodland Park Zoo just a few blocks north of Fremont. The University of Washington is 3 miles east of this home via 50th NE. The VRBO listing is 442325.
