Property description

This unique space is a private and serene lower level of a view home overlooking the Puget Sound, neighboring islands and the Olympic Mountain range. If the patio and beautiful garden grounds and setting don't take you on a mini-vacation, then perhaps the hot tub or quaint sea-side town of Edmonds will captivate you. Either way, this calming space has the Zen you need. One bedroom has a nice view, while the 2nd is a combination office/bedroom that includes a twin day bed. This is a great private work space. A fairly well-stocked kitchen, dining area and bathroom are within the unit. Washer and dryer are on the same level in a semi-shared area (rarely interrupted). This is a calm space -- clean, well appointed, home away from home -- very private, looking out into the greenery of the yard and water view beyond. Stay a week or stay a month, you’ll love it either way…
Cautionary Note: Rustic entry includes uneven stepping stones, some steps with a patio, that's not perfectly even. It makes rolling luggage bumpy. Please watch your step! :)

For those who are working or playing on the Eastside or in Seattle, or anywhere in-between, you'll love this centralized private paradise where it serves as a jumping off point for meetings East, North or South on I5 - Even West on the Peninsula is convenient with the Kingston Ferry less than 2 miles away. Then, relax in the hot tub at night, or just sit on the patio for a gorgeous sunset. You'll love the Zen feel of this space as an escape or just a comfortable landing for exploring our fabulous Northwest's many adventures. San Juan Islands, Whidbey Island, the Olympic Peninsula, Vancouver B.C. all within a couple hours drive.

The small town of Edmonds http://www.ci.edmonds.wa.us/ has many fabulous restaurants, shops and is a nice 1.5 mile walk or short drive or bike ride. The Saturday Markets are not to be missed, and the Third-Thursday Art Walks are a superb! You will love this space - a quiet and serene paradise but central to all the Northwest has to offer.

If this space is booked, I am open to renting the upstairs (one bedroom, one bath). My private living space is not open to guests but adapted for guests to enjoy a beautifully appointed space, deck and views. I travel a great deal so I'm open to dates. It is on a case-by-case basis and would need references and to discuss this directly with potential guests.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I bought this house with a minor remodel in mind... famous last words, right? I ended up rebuilding the entire house. Such fun and so tough all at the same time. :) I have painstakingly added my unique touch to the space and the yard. Although far from perfect, it's my little paradise. I'm a proud grandma, small business owner, and just learning to express my creative side through drawing and painting. I love to travel, so meeting all the wonderful people each month is part of the fun.

Why the Owner Chose Edmonds, WA, USA:
Mostly the privacy and serenity, but certainly the view - not too big, not too small. Spacious but still efficient. Just perfect for me. If the lower space is booked, I am open to renting the upstairs (one bedroom, one bath). My private living space is not open to guests but adapted for guests to enjoy a beautifully appointed space, deck and views. I travel a great deal so I'm open to dates. It is on a case-by-case basis and would need references and to discuss this directly with potential guests.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Location, location, location. Edmonds is the sweetest little town on it's own - seriously. You'll love the small seaside town feel. But on a larger scale, it's a fantastic central location and landing place to explore the great Pacific Northwest. The Eastside (Redmond, Bellevue, Woodinville wineries & Bothell) are all minutes away, Seattle and it's eclectic magnetism is just 40 minutes south. To the north you have a multitude of day trips to places like LaConnor, San Juan Islands, Whidbey Island, Bellingham, Vancouver B.C., Leavenworth, Cascade Loop Highway is a gorgeous drive. And to the south there's Portland and Mt. Rainier. The West is one of my favorite places on earth -- the Olympic Peninsula by ferry, Anacortes, Port Townsend, the Rain Forest and amazing beauty. But don't forget our very own Eastern Washington with small town charm such as CleElum and Ellensburg and the gorgeous Cascade Mountain range and beyond you'll find some of the best wineries around. Don't forget the beautiful Palouse Falls http://alltrails.com/trail/us/washington/palouse-falls.
