              Car: Recommended

              The cottage is located in the vibrant Fremont neighborhood, the self proclaimed Center of the Known Universe! The neighborhood is full of traditional family homes about 5-10 minutes north of the downtown core by car. Seattle Center including the Experience Music Project, Science Fiction Museum and Space Needle can be reached quickly. The Seattle waterfront is less than 10 minutes by car as well.

              Within walking distance of the cottage are numerous restaurants and bars as well as local grocery stores. Woodland Park Zoo is about 10 blocks north of the house on top of the ridge.

              Green Lake park is a short drive over the ridge from the house and has a running and biking trail around it which makes for a great morning or evening outing.

              The house has a great central location for exploring Seattle as well as the Fremont, Ballard and Phinney Ridge neighborhoods.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: We are true Seattlites and know the area very well. When not living in Seattle, we can often be found traveling the world from South America to Asia and beyond. When traveling we often stay in vacation rentals ourselves so it is important to us that you feel as at home in our house as we do when we travel and find the PERFECT place.

              Why the Owner Chose Fremont:
              This property allows for the enjoyment of all that Seattle has to offer. Located near the very fun Fremont and Ballard neighborhoods, you can go out and walk home. Alternatively the house is perfectly setup for a quiet night in after a long day of seeing the sights!

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Private with a great layout for one or two couples. This house is super convenient to downtown and all that Seattle has to offer! Uno de los propietarios habla español.
