Amazing waterfront home on the shores of the famous Ship Canal. Only a few steps to Hiram Chittenden Locks to the East and Discovery Park to the West; two of Seattle's most visited sites. A short walk across the Locks to Ballard is a must, with eclectic and artsy restaurants, waterfront dining, boutique shops and pubs.
The home features front row views of the Ship Canal. Water traffic includes day trippers, to Alaska fishermen, tugs are a favorite. The nearby Heron rookery,resident Sea Lions, fish jumping, beautiful sunsets and ever changing activity on the water make this truly a unique location.
The home is Northwest Contemporary in style. It features a fully stocked kitchen, plus microwave, dishwasher and coffee maker (this is Seattle, after all). The kitchen is open to the living room and 'Walls of Windows' to the views. The living room has cable 1080i HDTV, a fireplace and walks onto the view deck.
There are three bedrooms, two with big waterfront views, one enjoys a walk in closet and space for a crib if desired.
There is an in unit full sized laundry, and a newly refinished three quarter bath.
The sunny waterfront deck is a nice place to finish the day. Steps to the waterfront yard to play and watch traffic from.
You will be delighted with your stay here. This home is in an upscale neighborhood, with so many sights from the windows, or a short walk away. Downtown Seattle is an easy, quick drive. This will be the perfect home base for your vacation!

Of the places I have lived, this is by far the most facinating and enjoyable! The waterfront is very active, local sights and great restaurants are within walking distance. A quick drive and you are in the heart of Seattle visiting Pike's Place Market. I think you will find this is the perfect base for your Seattle vacation.
I am no scientist, but I have read that in environments with salt tinged sea air (like this Waterfront) an abundance of negative ions(electrically charged atoms) are found, which increases the brains seratonin levels, thereby giving an overall feeling of wellbeing and energy! That's pretty great.
