A family member purchased this home in 1941, after retiring to Seattle from Anchorage, AK. The house has remained in the family since and became a vacation rental in 2007. We love this house and enjoy sharing it with fellow travelers. The house is peaceful and has a quiet calm that insulates from the busy lifestyles of this age. We live and work in Alaska and take vacations in Seattle too. We hope you find our home as enjoyable as we have. See our Alaskan vacation rental at vrbo listing #289953.
We renovated most of the home, including "discovering" the beautiful original oak flooring beneath the living room carpet. The house has most of the original windows and flooring, the kitchen was added in the 1960's. We had the floors refurbished, re-plastered and repainted the walls, and purchased new furnishings in 2007. The wheelchair ramp and vanity & sink were added over the years to accommodate an electric wheelchair. Please note that these are not to current ADA requirements.
Carkeek Park in located just minutes from the house. Take a stroll on the beach, watch the sun set, stand on the pedestrian bridge over the train tracks while the train rushes beneath you!
