About the property

Best of both worlds-10 min from downtown & steps from Lake Washington

Fun, art filled, colorful, private apartment in a beautiful older home in the quiet residential neighborhood of Mt. Baker. In summer, you can open the french doors of the apartment and relax and enjoy the surrounding garden. The apt is only steps to Lake Washington and Mt. Baker Beach where you can swim, walk, play tennis, ride your bike, or dine in some wonderful small restaurants. If you would like to visit downtown you can catch an electric trolley only two blocks away. Once downtown you can easily catch the light rail to many other fun walkable neighborhoods in Seattle. The location of the apartment is the best of two worlds, it's quiet with natural surroundings but only a short distance to the fun filled city. If you arrive here by car there is a private designated parking spot just steps from the apartment.

Why The Owner chose Mount Baker

I was on my way to a garage sale when a friend saw the sign For Sale By Owner. We climbed the stairs to the home and looked back - Wow! what a view. The lake was sparkling and house so charming - built in 1923 with original windows and beautiful moldings and French doors. I fell in love and made an offer that day. I've never regretted my decision. I have lived here since 1988 and enjoyed the magic of this home and the beauty of this neighborhood and it's residents every day.

The apartment was very clean and every detail was thought of.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very clean and every detail was thought out.

The kitchen was stocked with every necessary item to cook or heat up leftovers. The owner provided both coffee, snacks and drinks.

The location was perfect. Just steps from Lake Washington. Although it was a longer walk, we loved walking to Pikes Place Market, etc.

The outside garden area was beautiful and very quiet.

I recommend this property.

Great accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Seattle was so wonderful. The apartment was so very nice with everything you could possibly want. The hosts were awesome and so helpful. The property is only 2 blocks from the bus stop and very convenient to Downtown via a 20 minute bus ride. The terrace overlooks Lake Washington and the scenery was breath-taking. I will definitely want to stay here again if we go to Seattle.
