                  Car: Recommended

                  Your apartment is located on the southwest slope of Queen Anne Hill. Many people say this is the most desirable location in Seattle, offering breathtaking views of Puget Sound sunsets and within walking distance of virtually all of Seattle's major cultural attractions. As a neighborhood, Queen Anne and specifically our corner of it, offers quiet privacy, architectural interest and some of Seattle's best scenery, while providing outstanding dining, shopping and immediacy to the city's charms; a combination that is hard to match and not just in Seattle.

                  Your apartment magnifies these charms by providing fine surroundings, a great kitchen, wonderful beds, views both in and out, impeccable taste and great density of quality. Simply put, we don't think you can do better at any price.
