Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I am a third generation builder of fine homes. My grandfather would have built this custom 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:
Charming comfortable design and location in a quiet, upscale historic neighborhood very close to downtown Seattle. Proximity to Green Lake, Woodland Park Zoo and recreation area, Phinney Ridge, the Fremont waterfront, the University of Washington, Wallingford and many local restaurants and amenities. Easy access to Pike Place Market, Seattle Center including the Space Needle, Music Experience Project, Opera House, Pacific Northwest Ballet, Dale Chihuley art exhibit and multiple live theaters. The Elliott Bay waterfront with scenic Seattle Art Museum outdoor sculpture garden, waterside trails with wonderful views of the Olympic Mountains, cruise ship access and gateway of ferries to Victoria Canada and the Kitsap Peninsula. Not to mention dockside restaurants and waterfront activities. Most of all the home is a wonderful place to have family gatherings!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Spacious multilevel living space and a design oriented with multiple amenities everyone in the family can enjoy while experiencing quiet comfortable surroundings. 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, Seattle Center including the Space Needle, Music Experience Project, Opera House, Pacific Northwest Ballet, Dale Chihuley art exhibit and multiple live theaters 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 as well as the Seattle Mariners, Sounders and Seahawks sports stadiums. It’s all close by! If this home is booked or you need more space see my other VRBO #344506 in nearby Ravenna Park just 1 mile north of the University of Washington and 3 miles east of this home.
