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 benefits of current technology in home design.

Scott Lawrence purchased this house in 2012

Why Scott Lawrence chose Fremont

Charming comfortable floor plan and location in a quiet, upscale historic neighborhood very close to downtown Seattle. Proximity to the Fremont waterfront, Woodland Park Zoo and recreation area, Green Lake, the University of Washington, Wallingford, Queen Anne and many local restaurant and amenities. Easy access to downtown Seattle and all significant neighborhoods just north of downtown.

What makes this house unique

Flexibility in living space options if needed for larger gatherings.

Great home and location!!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for three nights while in town for a wedding and sightseeing...our two young kids loved the home...much more comfortable than a hotel. Will definitely stay here again when in town! Great location in a nice neighborhood. The house amenities made this a very comfortable and fun stay.

- Great location near Fremont & Ballard. Clean, well kept, nicely furnished, good comfortable beds. The best praise I can give is that we will be staying there again next time we visit my daughter in Seattle. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Quiet, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time staying here on our trip to Seattle. It was quite hot so the air conditioners were lifesavers! Was a perfect location in terms of distance to attractions, we especially loved being able to walk to the zoo! For families with young kids, its just a short drive north to Green Lake Park which has an AMAZING playground plus water activities for all ages!

Great location, ideal for a small family

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for a small/young family and with room for grandma. The place was clean, well kept and in a great neighborhood. We had a minor incident with the rental car (unrelated to the property) and the neighbors went above and beyond to help us out. Would definitely stay here again.
