Located on a quiet, dead end street near the University of Washington, this comfortable home provides easy access to many of the city sites and a peaceful respite to come home to. Enjoy sitting on the deck with a cool beverage and something tasty cooking on the gas grill while you enjoy a view of the Space Needle and Queen Ann Hill. If your travels involve time at Children's hospital, there is a well maintained, walking path directly there just down the street. A small local shopping area with coffee shop, salon, restaurant, pharmacy and more is only a block away, as is the Burke Gillman Trail. Several nearby bus lines make navigating the city by foot or bike pretty convenient. Among the many things we do to make your stay comfortable we have made up all the beds with high-thread count sheets and down comforters.
I grew up in the Midwest, moved to Eastern Washington for work and ended up raising my family there. Now that I'm retired, I enjoy living in the Seattle area. My daughter lives in Seattle and I am enjoy spending time with my three grandsons. My two sons live outside the state of Washington with their spouses. I obtained my license as a real estate broker in the summer of 2012 and am enjoying this retirement career.
I originally purchased this home as a place for my sons to live as they attended the nearby University of Washington. Laurelhurst has a deserved reputation for being a quiet, considerate and safe neighborhood so I felt very comfortable with my children living there. The home was really ideal for them with it's close proximity to the main campus as well as a quiet place to study. Since they no longer need housing for school, this home provides me with an ideal location for family gatherings when all my children are in town.
The quiet neighborhood, pleasant view, entertaining deck make this home very comfortable to live in. The incredibly convenient location makes this a great base for any number of types of stays in Seattle. It provides easy access to Children's Hospital, University of Washington, the UW Medical center, lots of shopping, dining, and other great local services. Getting downtown is easy and doesn't require getting on the freeway. The nearby bus routes make it easy to get around Seattle.
