Seattle House Rental Photos and Description
Two story detached residence close to Lake Washington
We completed this guest house at the end of October, 2012. It is adjacent to a 1910 bungalow that I restored in the Mt. Baker neighborhood. You enter through a gated patio. There is one bedroom and bath on the ground floor that has radiant heat flooring and an exposed wood ceiling. Upstairs is a sitting area, leading out to a deck. A galley kitchen with vintage Spark stove and cozy breakfast nook is to the back.

About Jake Ehlers
I have built houseboats similar to the one in Sleepless in Seattle and wanted this structure to have the functionality and clean lines of a boat. I'm a woodworker so I also wanted to build in much of the furniture so that the space was uncluttered and had its own personality.
Why Jake Ehlers chose Seattle
I've built houses for forty years and this is a jewel. Because of the radiant heat flooring, it is warm and comfortable. There are skylights that bring in light, and a great deal of attention has been paid to the lighting. Lake Washington is a short walk for a swim in the summer. It is extremely quiet neighborhood and yet it's only a twenty minute drive downtown or to the University.
What makes this house unique
If you ever wanted to stay in a house like you'd find in Dwell Magazine, this is it.
