Green Lake apartment description

This 1890’s remodeled 1st floor unit provides a conveniently located retreat half a block from the shores of Greenlake. Our family has lived in some capacity on this block for three generations enjoying over 60 years of community and laughter. Located near the bustling neighborhoods, this unit provides the perfect starting point for peaceful walks around the lake or gustatory adventures through Seattle's famous neighborhoods. The nearby bus stop offers a convenient option for getting into the heart of downtown Seattle!

Whether you use the driveway or ample street parking, a short path leads up to the covered, private entrance of the Green Lake ground level unit. Once inside you will find:
~Spacious living room with partial view of the lake
~Master bedroom with Queen size bed and flat screen TV
~Second bedroom with two twins and flat screen TV
~Well equipped kitchen
~Laundry Room with washer and dryer
~Full Bathroom with shower and bath

Whether you are looking for a quiet retreat where you can take in the calming views of Greenlake or wanting to explore the Northwest's diverse outdoor activities or Seattle's exceptional food scene, this Green Lake unit is here to welcome you.

The Wallingford/Tangletown area, just a short distance away, showcases over 60 unique places ranging from the restaurant of James Beard Award winner Maria Hines, Tilth, also voted one of the best new restaurants by the New York Times; to one of our favorite taco trucks in town, Rancho Bravo. Or explore the variations of the Pacific Northwest Microbrew community with a handcrafted pint at Elysian Brewery in Tangletown or the ranging selection of local and imported beers at Bottleworks in Wallingford. The near-by 2.8-mile walking path around Greenlake or the boat and bike rentals at the Greenlake boathouse and Greggs provide several modes to enjoy the nature and beauty of Green Lake. On a beautiful Seattle day the grassy slopes surrounding the lake are home to picnickers and sunbathers soaking up the sun and enjoying the beauty of this lake nestled in the heart of the city. If you wish to expand your adventure, the bus stop a very short walk away, can take you to the heart of downtown. Many guests fit in day trips to explore the beauty of the Cascades, Hoh Rainforest, or majestic Mt. Rainer.

Laughter and community live in the soil and we look forward to sharing this space with you!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1984

              About the owner: John and I (JoAnna) have been married 34 years and have enjoyed traveling with our family throughout the United States and many places in the world. Our best experiences in travel have been through finding vrbo's in neighborhoods and doing house swaps. We love Seattle and are excited to have a place we believe offers a home-like place to recharge and that is perfectly located for exploring our strong neighborhoods and all that the Northwest has to offer.

              Why the Owner Chose Green Lake:
              The Worthen family has lived in this neighborhood since the 1950s, with John growing up next door. We lived in this home during early years of our family life and know first-hand the convenience and central location of this home.
