Revel in the classic Seattle experience of relaxed elegance! 3 miles south of Seward Park, this beautiful artistic retreat is quiet and serene, yet only 15 minutes from the heart of downtown Seattle. Perched above a privacy hedge of cedar trees, the house has expansive views of Lake Washington, the rolling Cascade foothills and a nearby forest with old growth trees. Lounge in the comfort of the living room and watch the moonrise over Lake Washington; relax in the master suite with balcony and watch the morning sunrise. Bird watchers will enjoy visits from eagles, woodpeckers and stellar jays. Venture down to the neighboring wooded park for lovely nature walks along the trails and creek. This 2 bedroom, 2 bath home is a beloved project of it's owners, a general contractor and a professional artist.
The owners, staying in the completely separate mother-in-law apartment, are there to assure the property runs smoothly so you can have a pleasant and relaxing Seattle experience.
Beautiful colors, lots of original art and attention to comfort is yours. Enjoy!

We love this neighborhood so much that when we were ready to move from our last house we bought the house across the street! This area is a gem-- so close to Seattle and yet nestled in nature.
Breathtaking views of the lake from most of the rooms. The house is a quiet oasis after a day out seeing the sights. Being literally 10 minutes from the airport is wonderful when traveling. Easy access to I-5 takes one right into heart of downtown; minutes to I-405 makes Bellevue and the Eastside an easy commute.
