Property description

Enter a peaceful space in the lower unit of a private home with a garden on a quiet street. Located in the University District with access to public transportation to most areas in and around Seattle, especially downtown. Easy walking distance to the UW, bookstores, coffee shops, restaurants, movie theaters, upscale and downscale clothing stores, grocery stores, and pleasant green spaces.

Shoji screens are on all the windows of the apartment so it is light and private. The kitchen is equipped with a gas stove, a refrigerator and everything you need to cook with, eat off of and drink out of. Filtered water is in the refrigerator. Tea and coffee are provided along with some fresh fruit and cookies or a quick bread. There are a lot of grocery stores within walking distance. The Farmers Market, open on Saturday from 9AM-2PM year round is across the street from a Safeway. They are the closest.

Hair dryer equipped.

Bookings for a week or more may use the washer and dryer.

Within the space is a dressing room equipped with a closet, desk and chairs to relax in.

Stay here when you visit family and friends. Do you have business at the UW? Do you have a writing project you want to get done? Come see a music show at the Neptune or World Dance at Meany Hall. There is an improv theater not far away. Have a great time!

Car: Not Necessary

This is a good walking neighborhood with easy access to the city bus line. The UW is a 10 minute walk south. There is high end shopping and a wide variety of restaurants and services at the U Village due east down the hill. Take the stairway that is NE 52nd St. You will cross the Burke Gilman Trail which used to be a railway. It is now a bike path that runs from the top of Lake Washington all the way to Ballard. To the west there are more funky boutiques, a Goodwill, several consignment stores, and ethnic restaurants to the west on University Way otherwise known as The Ave. Get great pizza at Pagliacci's. For Indian food, there is the Jewel of India or Tandoor's. The Nook has melt in your mouth biscuits. Vegan? Got to Chaco Canyon on NE 50th St and 12th Ave NE. Do not miss the variety of bookstores on The Ave as well as coffee shops. The closest coffee shop is north on Ravenna Boulevard called Boulevard Grocery between 20th and 21st NE further north on 20th, walk on a bridge over a ravine through a residential neighborhood to find Third Place Books. Within the bookstore to the back is a great Greek restaurant called Vios and a pub downstairs called the Third Place. Follow Ravenna Boulevard west for 2 miles and you will come to Green Lake, Seattle's favorite park. You can rent paddleboats there or walk the 3.3 mile perimeter and birdwatch or people watch.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: I moved to Seattle from Massachusetts in 1979 because I fell in love with Seattle at Gasworks park. There is no place in the world like it.

Why the Owner Chose University District:
This property is a great location with excellent public transportation access. It is close to the freeway. There are many green areas to walk to and through. There are several movie theaters, playhouses, bookstores, grocery shops and clothing stores nearby. A hardware store too.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The property is beautifully landscaped. It calms you the minute you set foot in it.
