Wallingford house description

See more details and photos on my website:
http://www.wallingfordterrace.com

This updated top floor duplex is located in one of Wallingford's charming turn-of-the-century homes. Set on a quiet street with a private entrance, tall ceilings, and hardwood floors, this open floor plan home boasts tons of natural light and all the comforts of home.

The living area has seating for 4, dining for 4, French doors leading to a balcony, a large flat-panel TV set with cable and Roku, and a lovely view of the Seattle skyline across Lake Union. The balcony has an electric smoker, grill and small table with seating for 2. The large kitchen is fully stocked. A hallway leads to a laundry room, full bathroom, and private bedroom.

The bedroom features a comfortable queen-sized bed, a walk-in closet, and a desk. The living room has an uncommonly comfortable queen-size sleeper sofa with a thick foam mattress. This unit sleeps 4 adults comfortably.

If you are not already familiar with Wallingford, you are in for a treat. The house is located within 6 blocks of some of the best restaurants, coffee shops, storefronts, parks, and sights that Seattle has to offer. Walk to Lake Union, Gasworks Park, the Burke-Gilman Trail, Fremont, the University of Washington and more. 

We are a 2-minute drive to 99 (Aurora), 5 minutes to I-5, and 5-10 minutes to the 520 bridge. This provides the perfect commute to locations throughout Seattle and the East side. Street parking is available, and a dedicated driveway is available upon request.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: I have lived in Seattle for 14 years. I live downstairs and work from home, and I am always happy to answer any questions you may have or suggest fun activities in Seattle and the Puget Sound. My family and I enjoy our free time exploring the city, attending cultural events, making and appreciating art, and roaming the Puget Sound region in our Westfalia and our sailboat.

                  Why the Owner Chose Wallingford:
                  I knew this was a great property when I first saw it from the street, but I knew I had to have it when I walked inside and saw how beautiful it is.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The kitchen, dining and living areas open up to a balcony with French doors and a gorgeous view of downtown from across Lake Union. Also, we have outfitted this rental with all the comforts of home. We have made Thanksgiving dinner in the kitchen and have outfitted it accordingly.
