The place is a brick cottage that has a lot of character and gets a lot of daylight. It has off street and street parking and is very close to downtown and Capital Hill where most of the fun stuff is. You can get there quickly by bus or cab or driving.
It is great for families (with kids). The neighborhood has a lot of families that frequent the park park across the street. And there are a few nice restaurants and a bakery that has great breakfasts and coffee a short walk away.
There is a bus stop just in front of the house that will take you to Seattle Center and one a couple blocks away that will take you to downtown Seattle.
