Property description

Very close (1 mi) to University of Washington, UW Medical Center, Children's Hospital, Lake Washington and University Village shopping. Walk to UW sport events along the Burke Gilman paved bike trail which links to the UW and all significant area's north terminating at the dowtown waterfront. The trail skirts Lake Union with panoramic views of the city and the Olympic Mountains. A great way to get your daily exercise or enjoy a leisurely stroll while taking in the view.

The main floor has a formal living room with gas fireplace and tile surround, formal dining room with seating for 8, two bedrooms one with a king bed and one with a queen, full bath with tiled tub and shower, full service kitchen and breakfast nook. The kitchen is complete with everything you need to cook all your meals. The beds are comfortable with down comforters in the winter month's and air conditioning in the summer month's to ensure you have a quiet restful sleep.

The new, private lower level suite has a separate outside entrance, full bath with tiled floor, tub and shower, wool carpet, kitchen area, sitting room with 40' LCD hi definition tv, blu-ray disc, stereo, free standing gas fireplace, two large bedrooms with queen beds, large closets, views of the park and plenty of natural light.

Location

Steps away from our historic old growth forest Ravenna Park. Over two miles of trees, hiking trails, all year stream, ballfields and playgrounds for young children nestled next to the Ravenna Greenway. Walking distance to the local coffee and wine bar on the greenway with outdoor seating and contemplative surroundings. Very charming and safe neighborhood.

If this home is unavailable or you need more space consider renting my other property located nearby (see VRBO listing #442325 or #453411).

 

Owner info

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.
