Ballard apartment description

Note: For a single person or a couple you may want to check my other listing #504406. This is a smaller apartment located in the first floor of the same building with a nice king bed in it.

Property Address: 2425 NW 64th St. Seattle, WA 98107

This is a top floor unit with two private bedrooms and two open sleeping lofts. The are a total of four queen beds that allow up to eight guests to sleep comfortably here.

We are located just a ½ mile from the Ballard downtown core yet; we are far enough removed that you can enjoy a peaceful night sleep in our quiet, friendly and safe neighborhood.

The apartment occupies the entire 3rd floor, it has windows in all four sides, letting in lots of natural light that combined with the high ceiling make it feel airy and spacious.
Ray Freeman, the local architect designer of our property displays this home in his website. There he mentions he was inspired by Ballard's maritime heritage.
In clear days we get a beautiful view of Mount Rainier and the Space Needle from the unit’s entrance and south facing loft.

The apartment comes with all the standard amenities that you would expect to find in a regular hotel: ironing board and iron, hair dryer, soap, shampoo, toothpaste, coffee maker, toaster, toilet paper, clean linens.

The kitchen has a gas stove/oven, full fridge, dishwasher, cooking utensils, pots and pans. There is a dinnerware set for 8 person. We have a Keurig coffee maker with some coffee pods included to get you started in your morning coffee. There is an electric tea kettle and toaster.
The round table is expandable from 4 to 8 people allowing your entire group to come together for dinner. Four folding chairs are stored away in the closet near the entrance.
In each of the two bedrooms we have installed wall-mounted drop-leaf desks that are out of the way when not in use but, are perfect for those needing to get some work done while in vacation.
The 39' flat HDTV in the living-room comes with 40 plus antenna channels and Netflix access included via a Roku player.

Other amenities included:
- Private, independent entrance with a keyless electronic door lock.
- Well-lit entrance with sensor lights for late arrivals.
- Off-street parking (first one to the right), free street parking as well.
- 25 mbp. high speed internet cable with latest technology Wi-Fi router.
- Free use of our home gym.
- Free use of our bikes to go explore the area.
- Access to private backyard with table and chairs.
- Use of Washer and Dryer included.
- 10% Discount for returning guests.

Neighborhood:

Ballard has being called by some a foodie’s paradise for its many and diverse restaurants, bars, cafes and bakeries. It attracts young and less-young people with active lifestyles because of the many outdoor activities available here. There is the 27-mile multi-use recreational Burke-Gilman trail, Golden Gardens Beach and park, an indoor rock climbing gym, kayaking, fishing, boating and bicycling and other outdoor activities.

Public transportation:

The bus stop is at the corner of our block. There, you can take routes #18 and #40; both will take you to downtown Seattle. Route #40 (I am more familiar with) takes you to downtown in 30 minutes at a cost of $2.25. In its northbound route it will take you to the Northgate Mall. Route #44 on Market Street will take you to UW.
Google Maps works particularly well with the public transportation option in the Seattle area. You can also download to your phone the One Bus Away App that was designed by a local UW graduate student.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: Originally from Cuba I have been a resident of Seattle for 20 years. I love to travel abroad and have visited many countries in Europe, North and South America. I love meeting new people and learning from other cultures. In the picture: El Poso de Jacinto. Aguadilla, Puerto Rico.

              Why the Owner Chose Ballard:
              If you are familiar with Seattle you know how beautiful, cosmopolitan and welcoming this city is. When previously living in the North end of the city I found myself coming to Ballard again and again following tips from friends for restaurants, bakeries, pubs and outdoors activities. We chose to live in Ballard because it is a safe, clean neighborhood surrounded by good schools with lots of outdoor activities, like walking, running, bicycling, rock climbing etc.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              Conveniently located in the Ballard area. Walking distance to: NW Market St, Ballard public library, Golden Gardens, Hiram M. Chittenden Locks, restaurants, french bakery, pubs and bus stops to Downtown Seattle (#40 south), Northgate Mall (#40 North) and Udistrict (#44 West).
