About the Property

Newly Furnished 3 Bedroom/1.25 Bath With Spacious Living Space Inside And Out.

Songbird Cottage is your home away from home with its cozy interior and large outdoor living. Warm wood floors throughout the main level greet you as you enter into a comfy living room with a gas fireplace.

Dine in a brightly lit kitchen nook or out on the 500 square foot covered back patio in a beautifully landscaped yard. The furry member of your family will enjoy the room to play within the extra tall fence enclosed back yard.

With modern amenities such as WiFi, LED TV's and a separate office space complete with wireless printer/scanner/copier you can enjoy your usual comforts while traveling or away on business.

Finished basement hosts a bonus game room with Queen sleeper sofa and a large King bedroom with walk in closet.

Main floor has living room, kitchen, two bedrooms, bathroom, office and laundry room with additional sink and toilet.

We only use green cleaning products when making your home away from home spotless. By using chemical free cleaning products we strive to accommodate those who are sensitive to synthetic chemicals. Sheets are 100% cotton as are the bath towels.


Close to I-90 yet nestled in a nice, quiet neighborhood you will be within minutes of everything you need...grocery stores, restaurants, Spokane Valley Mall, shopping, fairgrounds and downtown are easy access. Enjoy Centennial Trail or the new Mirabeau Park within 5 minutes.

Be sure to visit the Botanical Gardens at Manito Park especially if you are visiting while the roses are in bloom. While there, visit the Japanese Garden that will make you forget you are in a city with its tranquil atmosphere. Perfect place to take a good book and enjoy a relaxing afternoon.

Riverfront Park is always on the To Do list. Walk along the river, feed the ducks and watch children as they play in the water fountain. Or watch a movie at the new Imax Theater. Great shopping in the mall along with local specialty shops make for a fun day.

Whether you are here for the Theater, Bloomsday, Hoopfest, your children's sporting tournaments, or a leisurely vacation Songbird Cottage will be your favorite home away from home.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: I enjoy being in the real estate business with emphasis on home improvement and interior design. Having previously lived in Spokane for 8 years I love the friendly neighbors and laid back vibe of Spokane.

Why the Owner Chose Veradale, Spokane Valley, WA, USA:
Spokane is a great place to live and has the BEST weather on earth...in my humble opinion. The people are friendly and the city has more of a relaxed pace to it allowing you to truly exhale and wind down. I love the history and the old buildings add a quaint character to the city.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The minute I walked in the door I felt at home. I hope you do as well. The kitchen bay window nook is a favorite place of mine to enjoy morning tea or coffee with sunshine and bright flowers from the planter box just outside starting my day. I adore being in the large backyard whether to grill out and dine or just watch the birds daily activities. The layout of the home is very comfortable with each room distinctly separate from the others allowing everyone to have their space. It's great location to everything spanning from the airport to Coeur d'Alene paired with the well kept quiet neighborhood are perfect for evening walks or riding the bikes.
