In the very heart of Seattle, a 180 degree view of an active waterfront with UW campus across the channel, Amazon, South Lake Union, Downtown, University of Washington and University Village just minutes away. You couldn't be better located for all the best Seattle has to offer.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: A Seattle resident since college. A 'foodie' with years in the food business. A major fan of Seattle with an intricate knowledge of what to do and where. My wife, Mimmi (Swedish!) has worked hard to give our little compound a gracious and welcome atmosphere. You'll find us reading, skiing, bicycling, playing tennis, 'rowing the cut', and, of course, savoring our great Washington wines.

Why the Owner Chose Northeast Seattle, Seattle, WA, USA:
THis little compound consists of the big house (this property), the barn (a small home on the waterfront), an original 1919 floating home, and a dock for our boat. All right in the middle of the city. You will love being here!
