Ballard apartment description

This delightful retreat is located on the second and third floors of a turn-of-the-last-century house in historic old Ballard. It is a complete, fully functional home with a fully equipped kitchen. Nothing is shared with the main floor unit except laundry facilities in the shared entry. Acoustic insulation insures that you will hear little if anything from your downstairs neighbor.

Ballard has everything you could want. Living in this home, it's all at your doorstep! Within 1 block you can enjoy espresso and some of the best bread and French pastries in Seattle. Within a 6 block radius you can enjoy an upscale movie house, a diverse array of restaurants, shops and the fabulous year-round Sunday Farmer’s Market offering fresh locally grown produce and products. If your visit is job-related, you will also have access to a post office, FedEx, Kinko’s and newly built-green public library. A personal fax machine is available upon request.

This apartment was completely renovated in 2013 in keeping with the home's original character. We did it with the intent of moving in when we retire, so the work is top notch and very tasteful. Oak floors extend through the entry, living room, kitchen, stairs to third floor and both bedrooms. The acoustic insulation between this home and the main floor unit is amazing! It is very quiet and peaceful.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1976

              About the owner: Bob and Mary have owned this 100+ year old farmhouse Victorian for decades. Restoring and maintaining it has become a very enjoyable hobby. We are using it as a short-term rental because it allows us to share the home with a lot of people. We have many repeat guests that refer to it as their 'other home'. We plan to move in ourselves when we retire. We currently live a couple of miles to the north.

              Why the Owner Chose Ballard:
              This place is beautifully maintained and has character.
