About Scott Lawrence

I am a third generation builder of fine homes. My grandfather would have built this craftsman home and it is an honor to be the owner!

Restoring the original style while adding contemporary updates allows my guests to appreciate the history while enjoying all the conveniences of current technology in home design.

I live nearby in a 1907 craftsman home which I recently restored in the historic Leschi neighborhood of Seattle.

Scott Lawrence purchased this house in 2012

Why Scott Lawrence chose Seattle

I chose Phinney Ridge for the charming quiet neighborhood character and easy access to downtown as well as the popular well established neighborhoods just north of the city. Fremont, Green Lake, Wallingford, Ballard, Queen Anne and the University Of Washington are all close by.

Families visiting their relatives appreciate this convenience as well as visitors who wish to be close to downtown and stay in a quiet, safe location within walking distance of grocery stores, restaurants, and other services.

What makes this house unique

Spacious multilevel living space with great amenities the whole family can enjoy and the location!

The Woodland Park Zoo and Green Lake recreation area are two blocks away with many spring and summer activities to enjoy. Easy access to Pike Place Market, the Space Needle and Music Experience Project at Seattle Center are a short drive or bus ride away.

There is easy access to the Elliott Bay waterfront with dockside restaurants, shops, water taxi and ferry service to Puget Sound and Victoria Canada, the Seattle Aquarium, Seattle Art Museum outdoor sculpture garden, waterside trails with wonderful views of the Olympic Mountains and Alaska cruise ship terminals. The Seattle Mariners, Sounders and Seahawks sports stadiums are within walking distance of the downtown waterfront.!

If this home is booked or you need more space see my other VRBO #453411 on this property or in nearby Ravenna Park just 1 mile north of the University of Washington and 3 miles east of this home. The VRBO listing is 344506.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The house is great and very comfortable. We stayed with our son and his family and they were able to walk to the zoo and some close by parks with the kids. We found it convient for getting in and out of the city and the functions for our younger son's wedding. It worked perfect for us. Thanks.

Great setup; great location

  • 5 of 5

This home was plenty spacious for 6 adults. Very nice bedrooms and spacious living rooms, upstairs and downstairs. Kitchen was very nice, as well. Everything was very clean. We enjoyed sitting out on the porch, as the weather happened to be perfect for us. Walked to stores, coffee, bus easily. Being close to the zoo was key for us, but the whole area was great! Scott was very accommodating and available. We would choose this place again!

It was a great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

There were 4 of us there for UW Graduation and it was a perfect place! There's lots of room for everyone - loved the two full baths! It had a great patio with plenty of chairs and the two living areas were nice. The kitchen had great appliances - especially the spacious refrigerator. The owner was always responsive and answered quickly. I would stay there again in a heartbeat!!

very clean and comfortable

Nice house with plenty of space and clean, comfortable rooms. A couple of minutes to good coffee and food, and ten to fifteen minutes to downtown if minimal traffic. Good value.

Not the greatest

  • 2 of 5

There are a number of things

1. First inform the people who rent there is going to be another tenant upstairs

2. Have the home at a comfortable temperature before renters come (cold in house)

3. Fix all air leaks when temp is cold outside (New weather stripping on front door and door in the basement that leads to garage

4. Cover basement back door so people can't look in when coming from basement bathroom.

5. Upstairs tenant left there porch light on so it lights up the whole main floor including the bedrooms if you want to leave the bedroom doors open

6. Not happy as I had booked a different home and they changed the reservation

7. When reservation got changed had to do paperwork all over again by then pay all the money up front

8. Then had to get the credit back from first reservation

9. Entire home was a hassle

Walk a few blocks to Uneedaburger (best burgers in the city!) for a locally brewed tap beer and gourmet menu in upper Fremont. Shop at Marketime Foods on your way back for fresh food, groceries, great takeout, craft beer and wine selections. Pick up a movie rental at Video Isle which specializes in British and American cable TV series as well as all the current popular foreign and American films.
