Book your next Seattle stay in a 1930's classic family home that has been loved and cared for by 4 generations! This charming house is fully furnished, has a lot of personality and artistic charm; an elegant and relaxing family room, two comfortable and tastefully decorated bedrooms, a classic breakfast nook, a fully equipped kitchen and a gorgeous and large outdoor stone patio, with a built-in fire pit, BBQ gas grill and outdoor lounge and dinner seating.
This amazing house is ready to be your home away from home. The cottage feel and the art deco style of this cozy house would be the perfect place to retreat during your visit to the bustling Seattle metropolitan area.
Location: The house is also conveniently located close to many Seattle favorites. All while being off the main circuit, in the quiet and private neighborhood of North Matthews Beach, which is just blocks from the beaches of Lake Washington and only a 10-15 minute drive to the UW campus, University Village shopping, Children’s Hospital and Downtown Seattle.
The house is also just minutes from the popular Burke Gilman Trail. This paved bike and jogging trail is detached from most roads and winds its way from the north end of Lake Washington to just north of Lake Union; connecting you to other parts of North Seattle such as the U-district, Wallingford, Fremont and Ballard.
Extra Sleeping Accommodations: We would also like to accommodate larger families, so we provide an extra bed to be used in the living room (a very comfortable, adjustable air mattress) and extra linens for the air mattress and couch, which can also be used as a bed. Upon request, we will have a pack-n-play available for little ones as well as a basket of toys for their stay.
Nearby Attractions: Minutes away; public beach access at Matthews Beach Park.-Lake Swimming with a floating dock and diving boards.
10 min. walk to “Beaver Pond”, a local water conservation estuary.
15 min. walk to Meadowbrook community center with adjoining children’s play park and athletic track at Nathan Hale High
My husband, Rob and I grew up for the most part in the greater Seattle area. Rob actually spent much of his childhood in this home as it was his grandparent's house when he was a child. I grew up a Navy brat traveling around the world all the way from Italy to Texas until we landed in Port Orchard, WA when I was 13 and I haven't left since! Our paths crossed after college and we eventually were married and moved into our Matthew's Beach house. It is our great pleasure to be able to share this house with you, as it has been in our family since the 1930s. This home has brought us so much joy and we hope that it brings you much of the same joy, but also rest, relaxation and a home away from home.
We chose to purchase our Matthews Beach home because we loved the quiet neighborhood but also loved being only 10 minutes away from the city. It is the perfect mix of town and city! It was also an easy decision for us because we wanted to continue our families traditions in this home by keeping it in our family. We knew this location would be ideal for our family and hope that it is also for you and yours.
