About our home

Our home is a 4 bedroom three story house 4 miles from downtown Seattle in the trendy Phinney Ridge neighborhood. Wake up to the sun rising over the Cascade Mountains and Greenlake view from the master suite bedroom. Hear the howler monkeys at the city zoo just two blocks away or start the morning with a short stroll up the street to enjoy a coffee and pastry.

The Master suite, second bath and two additional bedrooms are on the top floor. The master suite includes a walk in closet, steam shower and view balcony. The ground floor is designed for relaxing, entertaining and dining. It includes a mudroom, a formal lounge and dining area before entering into a large kitchen, family room with nook. French doors open onto a back porch and completely fenced backyard. Additionally, a powder room and office are on the main floor.

Our live-in nanny currently uses part of the basement which includes studio apartment with bathroom, bedroom, kitchenette and lounge. This space can be made available upon request. The rest of the basement includes an office and laundry. Bicycles, skates, children’s scooters and beach gear are included in the swap.

Easily access downtown Seattle via a direct 6 minute drive or 20 minute bus ride. Eat, shop and tour the famous Pike’s Place market. Enjoy restaurants, theaters, shopping and ferry rides in this compact big city. The bus stop, two blocks from the house is near cafés, restaurants, pubs, a play park and the Woodland Park Zoo.

Many recreational opportunities are near including swimming, sailing, cycling, fishing, skating, tennis and a par 3 golf course just an easy 10 minute walk down the hill to Greenlake. Phinney Ridge is the best situated in all Seattle. Perhaps most spectacular of all are Olympic and Cascade mountain views all around the neighborhood. Freemont (aka center of the universe) and super trendy Ballard with the infamous Ballard Locks and salmon run are less then a 10 minute ride away.

Seattle and the immediate surrounds are packed with parks, wineries, lakes, mountains, hiking, cycling trails and some of the best restaurants in the US.

Note: Seafair is during the month of August- a number of festivals to do with pirates, parades, hydroplane races, the Blue Angels and more.
