Property description

This charming studio is the perfect get-away! Cozy, comfortable, and homey. It's an efficiency, and comes with a queen-sized Murphy bed. The backyard is so peaceful and serene, it's hard to believe you're merely blocks away from 4-star restaurants.

The studio is in the basement of my 1909 Craftsman bungalow, with its own separate entrance. It's newly renovated. The kitchenette has a small stove top, microwave, refrigerator, pans, dishes, spices, everything you need to do as much or as little cooking as you'd like! The front of the Murphy bed folds down into a desk, so you can work or write. You have access to my WiFi network, as well as a washer and dryer. There's also a TV with basic cable, DVD player, and some DVDs.

Public transportation is readily available. Great restaurants, coffee shops, and boutiques are all in walking distance. Don't rent a car unless you really need one. Street parking is available, but if you'd like, I can offer you off-street parking for an extra $10/night.

My neighborhood continues to grow in density. I host a lot of parents coming to see their kids, who are either at college or living nearby.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: I have lived and traveled all over the world. Seattle is my home now. I've been here the longest I've ever lived anywhere (over 10 years now.) I love this place, and I love sharing it with other people. I try to eat at a different restaurant every week, so I'm pretty knowledgeable about the local food scene. I'm a full time novelist, so I'm around all day. When the weather is nice, I will be sharing the backyard with you, working outside all day.

Why the Owner Chose Stevens, Seattle, WA, USA:
I love Seattle, and I think you will too.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It's such a short walk to everything here. If you like walking, you can easily go to Interlaken, which is a couple of square miles of wilderness in the heart of the city. Or you can walk downtown. The restaurants in the area are fabulous, and many of the specialize in local and organic food. You're also in walking distance of five grocery stores, in case you want to do some of your own cooking.
