Property description

This updated top-floor duplex is located in one of Wallingford's charming turn-of-the-century homes. Set on a quiet street with a private entrance, tall ceilings, and hardwood floors, this 1 bedroom, 1 bath home boasts cozy and carefully selected furnishings, a large and fully stocked kitchen, and all of the comforts of home.

The living area has seating for 4, dining for 4, a large flat-panel TV set with cable and Roku, and a gorgeous view of the Seattle skyline across Lake Union from the living/dining/kitchen areas and the balcony. The living room has an uncommonly comfortable queen-size sleeper sofa with a thick foam mattress.

The bedroom features a queen-sized bed, and the living room has a queen sofa bed with a Sealy Posturpedic mattress. All mattresses are high quality and very comfortable.

You can also rent both the upstairs and the downstairs to book the entire house with comfortable sleeping for up to 10 adults, 2 kitchens, 3 baths, 3 bedrooms, and 2 queen sized pull-out sofas! Both top and bottom are also child friendly.

If you are not already familiar with Wallingford, you are in for a treat. The house is located within 6 blocks of some of the best restaurants, coffee shops, storefronts, parks, and sights that Seattle has to offer. Walk to Lake Union, Gasworks Park, the Burke-Gilman Trail, Fremont, the University of Washington and more. 

We are a 2-minute drive to 99 (Aurora), 5 minutes to I-5, and 5-10 minutes to the 520 bridge. This provides the perfect commute to locations throughout Seattle and the East side. Street parking is available, and a dedicated driveway is available upon request.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I have lived in Seattle for 14 years. I live downstairs, work from home, and am happy to answer any questions you may have or suggest fun activities in Seattle and the Puget Sound. My family and I enjoy our free time exploring the city, attending cultural events, making and appreciating art, and roaming the Puget Sound region in our Westfalia and our sailboat.

Why the Owner Chose Wallingford, Seattle, WA, USA:
I knew this was a great property when I first saw it from the street, and I saw it as home instantly when I walked inside. We feel fortunate to have a private and lovely apartment upstairs for visiting family and friends, and we are honored to share it with you so that more families make happy memories here.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The kitchen, dining and living areas open up to a balcony with French doors and a gorgeous view of downtown from across Lake Union. Also, we have outfitted this rental with all the comforts of home. We have made Thanksgiving dinner in the kitchen and have outfitted it accordingly.
