Year Purchased: 1991
About the owner: I have been working with architects and designers for most of my professional life. This has given me an appreciation for all things that are well designed. For the past nearly 30 years, my wife of 31 years and I have raised three girls, here in Seattle. We love this city and constantly revel in its beauty. Weather permitting, we enjoy entertaining on our 1956 Chris Craft.
Why the Owner Chose South Lake Union: We have always thought the Eastlake area (the east side of Lake Union) was desirable because it had close proximity to downtown, the lake and the University of Washington. We have owned this building for over 20 years and are now offering this unit for a short term rental. We think the location is outstanding and should provide travelers an excellent base from which to explore.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: I have lived on a couple of houseboats in Seattle. The location of this apartment is a few blocks from that community. I enjoyed walking the docks and sitting on the waterfront, enjoying the activity on the lake. It is a truly unique experience, not approached anywhere else in the United States, possibly the world.
