Property description

Studio One-Bedroom, full kitchen, free bikes to borrow, pet friendly.
Only 12 miles to Downtown Seattle - Carriage House is in a quiet neighborhood and is great for walking along the water in nearby Lincoln Park.
- THERE IS HIGH-SPEED WIFI and expanded basic cable both from Comcast
- Free parking and about 20 minutes from the airport. (renting a car gives you more options, but you can get downtown easily on the Rapid C line)
- Everything you need to feel like you are home while you travel.
- Eagles, Harbor Seals, Blue Heron, and sometimes Orca Whales
- Views of Puget Sound
- Local beach access
- Bikes to borrow
- Great spot for touring Seattle or heading to hiking and beach sites
- Take in a sporting event at the stadiums without dealing with the noise and parking hassles of the city.
- Seattle Water taxi is 5 miles from the carriage house. It drops you off in the Pioneer Square area and stadiums for the Mariners, Seahawks, and Sounders.

There is a Queen-sized bed with a 3 inch foam top, washer and dryer, gas fireplace, 41 inch television, patio with a bistro table, and a private full bath. There is a brand new full kitchen with granite counters, glass tile backsplash, and a gas range great for making simple or complicated meals. There is a full-size fridge/freezer, coffee maker, toaster, utensils, plates and most things you would need to feel like you are cooking at home. The Carriage House has private parking with a lovely garden path down to the private entrance. (Five steps down and three up into the carriage house). It accommodates two guests comfortably. Great for Grandparents visiting kids and grandkids in Seattle or West Seattle.

The carriage house is water view, and the Water/Beach access is .2 mile walk to Lowman Beach. This park has a tennis court and stone path to a public beach with logs for climbing or sitting. There is a lovely sandy beach another .2 miles south of Lowman called Lincoln Park. Lincoln Park 135 acres and is one of the largest old-growth parks in all of Seattle. There are dozens of hiking, biking and walking paths throughout. There is also an Olympic size outdoor pool open all summer in the afternoons. For little ones there are summer wading pools and two large play grounds.

From the cathedral ceiling living area, there is a view of Puget Sound, and from the kitchen window there is a view of the north half of the Olympic Range.

For small or older dogs, it is an ideal location. It is only .2 miles to a waterfront park with great walking for leashed dogs. $50 extra per dog per stay.

Car: Recommended

Close proximity to Downtown Seattle, but in a very quiet and relaxing, waterfront area of West Seattle. Located on a bus line (Seattle metro 37 and short walk to Rapid C line)and 15 minute drive from the West Seattle Water Taxi that can take you right to the downtown waterfront.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: We lived in the older home on the property for four years before we built the new house and carriage house. The gardens were finished in 2002. Many of the plants are from the Endolyne Garden Club plant exchange each year. There are Apple, Quince, Fig, and a few Plum trees. The other edibles include huckleberries, sage, rosemary, parsley, and lovage. In the vegetable garden we usually grow blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, artichokes, asparagus, rhubarb, beans, cucumbers, carrots, greens, and many, many tomatoes. There are about 30 pots of annuals around the property. There is a greenhouse and chickens as well. You are more than welcome to walk through the vegetable garden and grab a ripe tomato in season.

Why the Owner Chose Seaview, Seattle, WA, USA:
We live here in West Seattle because it has wonderful views and sunsets, and is not pretentious. Lately it has become very hip and trendy with great restaurants and wonderful bike trails. Many many families live in this area, and the community has a nice friendly feel.
