Modern 2 bdrm + 2 sleeping lofts (4 queen beds) parking included and Bus stop
Available to rent is a unique contemporary home that occupies the top floor of our three-unit residence. Designed by Seattle architect Ray Freeman in 2001 this building retains within the original 1908 house. Due to new zoning regulations remodeling this house meant loosing about a third of its size. The original house was instead raised to the middle level the underneath excavated and a new earthquake resistant foundation and framing put in place. The top unit was then newly added.
A strategy of interconnected rooms and flowing spaces was used making hallways unnecessary. The open floor plan with the many windows and high ceiling that allow the lofts gives the unit an airy and spacious feeling.
This third floor unit is near the corner of NW 64th St and 24th Ave NW half way up a long slope. The combination of this two results in a nice view of the iconic Seattle skyline, the space needle and Mt. Rainier from the entrance and window and South facing loft.
The property is located just a half mile from the Ballard downtown core and NW Market St. We are within walking distance to all the many outdoor and indoor attractions Ballard has to offer. Public transportation is steps away with the bus stop at the corner of our block. Downtown Seattle and the stadiums are 5 and 7 miles away respectively; 15 minutes by car and about 40 minutes by bus.
Standard amenities like the ones offered in hotels are included here; iron and ironing board, hair dryer, soap, shampoo, toothpaste, coffee maker, toaster, toilet paper, clean linens and towels.
The kitchen has a gas stove and oven, full fridge, dishwasher, cooking utensils, pots and pans, dinnerware set for 8 person. We have a Keurig coffee maker with some coffee pods included to get you started in your morning coffee. There is an electric teakettle and toaster.
The round table is expandable from 4 to 8 people allowing your entire group to come together for dinner. Extra folding chairs are stored away in the closet near the entrance.
In each of the two bedrooms we have installed wall-mounted drop-leaf desks that are out of the way when not in use but, are perfect for those needing to get some work done while in vacation.
The 39' flat HDTV in the living-room comes with 40 plus antenna channels and Netflix access included via a Roku player that has over a hundred internet channels that you can use.

From the Owner
“If you are familiar with Seattle you know how beautiful, cosmopolitan and welcoming this city is. When previously living at the north-end of the city we found our-selves coming back to Ballard again and again. We chose to live in Ballard because we believe it is the best neighborhood of Seattle (voted by locals in Seattle's Magazine as the best). There are lots of outdoor activities to do as well as shops and great restaurants to visit and reach all by foot from our home.”
