Car: Not Necessary
The Ravenna Suite at Ravenna Guest House is located in the heart of the Roosevelt District - an easy walk to University of Washington, Greenlake and Whole Foods. There are 6 bus lines close by, including Express bus service to downtown, and direct bus service to Husky Stadium. Car and bike rentals are available close by, too. Explore the Roosevelt District, with restaurants, pubs, interesting shops, parks and more, all within walking distance.
Join the locals and take a stroll on the 2.6 mile path around Greenlake, where you will also find special events, sport fields, and paddle boats for rent. And don't miss visiting the UW, one of the most beautiful campuses in the country.
Ravenna Park is just blocks away, but it feel like you have left the city behind. The trail through the wooded ravine is a favorite walk for locals.
South of the UW campus, across the Montlake Bridge, is the Washington Park Arboretum and the lovely and tranquil Japanese Garden.
Swimming beaches and boating opportunities abound on Lake Washington, Lake Union and Greenlake. Rent kayaks from the Northwest Outdoor Center on Lake Union and paddle by the Floating Home communities and urban shoreline, while enjoying the spectacular view back to downtown Seattle.
On the western boundary of Seattle is Puget Sound. Visit the Locks, Shilshole Marina and Golden Gardens Park along our saltwater shoreline - all just a few miles west of the Roosevelt District.
Hop on a bus to downtown and you will find the Seattle Center with the Space Needle at its heart, Pike Place Market, ferry terminal, shopping, theaters and restaurants, our professional sports stadiums, and nightlife.
Take a day trip to Mt Rainier, or plan a hike in the Snoqualmie National Forest area. Head out to the many lakes and rivers, experience white water rafting, or bike on our extensive bike trail system. In the summer and fall, the North Cascades Highway opens, and you might feel like you have landed in the Alps.
There is so much to see and do, and we're happy to make suggestions based on your interests.
Year Purchased: 1989
About the owner: Owners, Tom and Elaine, are locals, having grown up east of Lake Washington. Elaine headed to the University of Washington and found she loved Seattle, and within a few years of marrying Tom, they decided to make NE Seattle their home. She studied architecture at the UW, and went on to start a residential design business. Tom was a home builder for many years, before he joined Elaine in design. We currently live just 5 minutes away, and are here at this house for work every day. We're happy to answer questions.
Why the Owner Chose Roosevelt, Seattle, Washington, United States of America:
We had lived and worked in the Roosevelt District for several years when this Craftsman home on Ravenna Boulevard came up for sale. It had been 'upgraded' with aluminum siding, but we could see its beautiful lines, and bought it. We moved our office to the main floor and rented out the upper and basement apts. Years later, while prepping for house painting we discovered the original siding was in terrific condition, and so we stripped off 700 pounds of aluminum and revealed the lovely original cedar siding. We spend part of almost every day at our office here in this house and in the Roosevelt District, and we never get tired of it!
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Ravenna Boulevard is a beautiful street with a meridian of grass and trees, 24 blocks long, that runs from close to University Village and the east end of Ravenna Park, all the way to Green Lake. There are dedicated bike lanes, and people run, jog, walk, skate along this route all the time. It's a historic house in a wonderful location.
