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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Fremont, Seattle, WA, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
