There are many activities available in the Seattle Area. The Space Needle, monorail into downtown, Seattle Center with its many rides and exhibits, Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum, Seattle Art Museum (SAM), Asian Gardens/arboretum, Nordic Museum, Sports Center, renown entertainers, and then there is the nature side. Wow do we have spectacular seasons here in the NW.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Joe and I love living in Seattle near our family and with our sweet pups 'Bella'and'Rosie'. We enjoy traveling globally, and learning about other cultures. We have lived in California, New York, and now Washington where two of our grand-children are growing up right before our eyes. Additionally we have grand-children in Florida, and Spain. I love gardening, cooking, hiking, reading, swimming, kyacking and designing terrariums. Seattle has the perfect environment for all we enjoy. We'd love to have you visit us soon!

Why the Owner Chose Northwest Seattle, Seattle, WA, USA:
Our scenery is stunning and each morning we wake up to the splendid view of Puget Sound and the majestic Olympic Mountains. There are many inspiring trails that take you thru the woods, along the beach, and around the serene neighborhood that we live in. We are just a short jaunt to the Village of Ballard where there are amazing new restaurants, coffee houses, boutiques, the Ballard locks where the annual salmon run can be watched and there are many bike paths for long interesting rides around town and around our lakes. Our local bus stops just a block from our home which takes you downtown or to the lite-rail in 20 minutes. It is also incredibly quiet here allowing the many varieties of birds to be heard along with occasional Eagles and Great Blue Herons.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Guests have access to the front courtyard, and back yard patio and garden. We enjoy our guests and have fun sharing our Seattle knowledge over a glass of wine. Our lil' helper is 'Bella' our therapy pup ( Miniature Labradoodle- non alergenic) who is the official greeter. We look forward to sharing our home with you!
