About Seth Gordon

Modern enthusiast and all around adventurer. originally from Baltimore, but took the advice to move out west and haven't looked back. I split my time between SF and Seattle.

Seth Gordon purchased this house in 2012

Why Seth Gordon chose Northwest

We purchased this second home in Wallingford to compliment our first modern property in the neighborhood. if you're traveling with a large group, you can all stay near each other!

What makes this house unique

Sleek modern design and plenty of comfortable space for you and your travel partners.

Modern and in a quiet neighborhood with great view of the city.

  • 5 of 5

The home was very well furnished with a nice layout. We had our whole family stay and there was plenty of room. 8 adults as we have 6 kids who are adults now. The barbecue grill on roof was easy to use and we took advantage of it. The roof deck is a great feature with views of the city which is probably about 4-5 miles away. Our host was great and he takes advantage of all the latest technology to make entry into home easy and also renting the place. Others have commented on the garage and driveway probably not usable because it is steep. However, like others, you don't need the garage as we were able to park on the street easily. I didn't even try the driveway and garage. Also, there were many spices and other condiments left to use and that was appreciated. It is annoying when you rent a place and want to cook a dinner but have to go out and buy salt & pepper and spices that you will only use once. There was also coffee and other pantry items left for our use. We left some things for the next guests as well. It is in a great location and we would stay there again.

Owner's Response: thank you for the thoughtful review. I'm glad that you enjoyed the home and had a great stay in seattle. Come visit again next time you're in town. The views cover downtown (which is only about 3 miles away) and all the way out to Mt. Rainier when the weather cooperates!

Nice Fremont Condo

  • 5 of 5

Very nice property for our stay of a week in Seattle to visit our daughter. Tucked away in a quiet area but close to bus lines and cute coffee shops and bars. Was a nice set up with a bedroom and bathroom in basement and two bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs. Clean and nicely decorated. Would stay there again.

Only negative - no way you can get a car in the driveway much less the garage, although plenty of street parking.

Clean, Modern, Convenient ..... well appointed

  • 5 of 5

Our family regularly visits Seattle and no longer needs to be situated near all the tourist destinations. We love the Pacific Northwest and have graduated to destinations and activities beyond the norm. It was our first time away from a downtown hotel/resort.........and we could not have been happier with this choice. Wallingford has a charm that takes decades to create and this home is situated perfectly for visitors to become more engaged during their stay. This home was well-appointed for our family of five and allows all visitors to make their stay as homey as their time and schedule allow. For our short stay, we did not engage many of the kitchen options. When we stay again (and we WILL stay again) it is nice to know you could cook full meals for your family and get everything for those dinners from sources that are a neighborly walk away. Thanks to Seth for his impressive property and professional communication. We knew everything we needed to know before arrival and shared a few texts as we checked in/out. We are a very independent family that does not need a lot of guidance or support. With the absence of monitoring, it was nice feeling that this house was "ours" during this stay. At any giving time, however, it was also reassuring to have the comfort that Seth would respond to any needs. Thanks Seth, for sharing your home with us.

You got to experience this view.

  • 5 of 5

We took a weekend trip to Seattle with some friends and had the most amazing time. Seattle is a fun fun city to go experience. What made our stay truely amazing was this very modern and very cozy place to come back to after a long day of enjoying Seattle. Simple walk to the Zoo which was just a mile away, super quick trip to the downtown area, Fremont bridge. Just so many cool things to do all within walking distance. We had three adult couples and one infant child. The bedrooms we very cozy and comfortable. We slept like we were in our own home. Could be happier with the house. Plus if your a sucker for view you won't want to miss this 360 roof top view of everything Seattle has to offer. The skyline, space needle, and Fremont bridge just light up and amazing view at night. A+++++++
