Located in the busy University District, perched on lush Ravenna park, you can have the best of both worlds. We have access to busses and I-5 is half mile away. You can spend the day touring as far a field or as close to home as you choose. Green Lake, the most used park in the city, the Burke Gilman trail, U of W main campus, University Village, Roosevelt District and the 'Ave' are all within a mile of our studio. Our neighborhood is an eclectic mix of shopping, entertainment, restaurants and sights to see.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: Jeff and I are both Seattle natives. We have lived for most of our 26 years of marriage and raised 2 girls in our beloved 100 year old house. We recently remodeled the back addition into a compact two story studio apartment, to add flexibility to our home. We both have family locally and the girls are nearly launched. Being owners on location offers you easy availability for questions or concerns.

Why the Owner Chose Ravenna, Seattle, WA, USA:
Susanne grew up in the house next door, where her mother still lives. Our house has the proximity to everything a big city boasts, yet we are awakened by song birds, woodpeckers and the occasional owl.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Our Tower Studio has been created in the spirit of our unique old house. We have kept the history, without sacrificing comfort and convenience.
