Property description

An oasis in the city! Beautiful remodeled two bedroom, two bathroom cottage with a large private backyard.

The cottage is laid out for many different type of travelers including families, two couples traveling together and business people traveling alone or with a colleague.

The house has a front entry that is level with the sidewalk except for one small step up. Great for travelers with limited mobility. Everything that you need is located on the main floor! After entering the house you'll find a spacious living room with high definition large screen television. Adjacent to the living room is the formal dining room with a lot of great light from many windows.

Off of the hallway to the kitchen you will find an airy bedroom with queen size bed, dresser and walk in closet. Across the hall from the bedroom is a spa bathroom with a natural stone surround shower.

Located in the back of the house is the bright and large kitchen with French doors that lead out onto an elevated deck overlooking the backyard. A perfect place for your morning coffee! The kitchen is fully equipped and includes a gas range and oven, full size fridge, dishwasher and microwave.

Downstairs in the daylight basement is a colorful family room with standard height (8 foot) ceilings. Also in the family room is a large desk that would be very functional as a home office if you needed to work while in Seattle. High speed wireless internet is available throughout the house. Down the hall you'll find another large bedroom with a queen size bed and separate sitting area with two comfy chairs. Perfect for curling up with a book. Off the hall is a full size bathroom with a bathtub and plenty of light from the rain glass window. At the end of the hall is the utility room with full size front load washer and dryers. The basement can also be accessed via the separate keyed side door.

The large flat backyard is fenced with plenty of grass to play on. The yard is nicely flanked by large trees providing great shade and privacy.

Located in a quiet section of the vibrant Fremont neighborhood with plentiful on-street parking and great access to all the sights of Seattle. Walking distance to Fremont and approximately 10 minutes by car to downtown Seattle. This central location allows for quick access to many of Seattle's sights including the Woodland Park Zoo, locks and fish ladder in Ballard, Olympic Sculpture Garden, Seattle Center and the Experience Music Project. Come and enjoy all that Seattle has to offer!

Car: Recommended

The cottage is located in the vibrant Fremont neighborhood, the self proclaimed Center of the Known Universe! The neighborhood is full of traditional family homes about 5-10 minutes north of the downtown core by car. Seattle Center including the Experience Music Project, Science Fiction Museum and Space Needle can be reached quickly. The Seattle waterfront is less than 10 minutes by car as well.

Within walking distance of the cottage are numerous restaurants and bars as well as local grocery stores. Woodland Park Zoo is about 10 blocks north of the house on top of the ridge.

Green Lake park is a short drive over the ridge from the house and has a running and biking trail around it which makes for a great morning or evening outing.

The house has a great central location for exploring Seattle as well as the Fremont, Ballard and Phinney Ridge neighborhoods.
