                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: West Seattle has been our home for about 30 years. We bought this house in 2005 and spent several years doing a 'down to the studs' remodel which added a self-contained apartment on the garden level for family, friends and guests. We live upstairs. We enjoy travel, meeting travelers and sharing our love for this area. Now that we are empty-nesters, we are ready to offer the apartment and to extend Northwest hospitality to our visitors.

                  Why the Owner Chose West Seattle:
                  West Seattle has a remarkable mix of resources and activities. It is like living in a small beach town yet Seattle's downtown is just 10-15 minutes away.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  This is a large, private, tastefully furnished and decorated view apartment in a great location. We are a 10-12 minute walk from the action at Alki Beach. In the peak summer months it's great to be part of the action, but it's also important to be able to get away from it. We are a few blocks from two different bus lines and a free shuttle to the Water Taxi that travels across Elliott Bay to downtown Seattle. Whether you travel downtown by bus, water or car (about 10 minutes), there is plenty to do once you get there.
