See the seller’s comments below.
Open House Date & Time:
Sunday, April 12, 12 p.m. – 4 p.m.
Favorite restaurant in the area:
Brad’s Swingside Café for Italian, Paseo for Cuban sandwiches, and even with the ownership changes, the 35th Street Bistro continues to exude a strong energy and solid menu. Oh, and of course the numerous Thai restaurants ensure that we all get our share of vegetables and spices!
Favorite places to go:
El Camino – margaritas on their deck are a must! For music, check out Nectar and Tost. For a mellow day in the sun, take a short hike up to the Woodland Park Rose Gardens and Greenlake.
What’s in the neighborhood?:
Everything! Fremont is the center of the universe. People come to Fremont on weekends, so if you live here, consider Thursday nights instead. Business is good with Google, Adobe, and Getty Images just a short walk away. Even after the huge development push, Fremont still keeps to its roots with its Annual Solstice Parade and Festival, Sunday flea market, and outdoor movies. You’re on the Burke Gillman trail so bike out to Shilshole or Chateau St Michelle. Or, get a Kayak and carry it down to Gasworks Park.
Best features of the home:
The deck off the master bedroom. East facing windows ensure early morning warmth and stepping onto the deck to enjoy the morning sky. Sleeping on the deck in August is pretty cool, too.
Any remodeling since you purchased the home?
No, but it has been repainted with the Divine line of paints. I would like everyone to know I replaced the hot water tank and clothing dryer in March 2008.
I hate to say it, but the garage. Driving the car in after grocery shopping, getting in the car without having to throw on my coat, having a warm car on winter mornings…Top it off with storage for so many toys! I can work on my motorcycle, store my bikes, skis, snowshoes, and camping gear. Somehow it just makes it so much easier when heading up into the mountains to have everything easy to load. Plus, there’s STILL room for wine and homebrew operation. I suppose the garage just makes everything in and around Seattle that much easier to enjoy.
Most romantic spot in the home:
With my new hot water tank I am sure that sunken bathtub off the master suite on a cold rainy evening takes the case. Hook up some tunes, candles, wine, and dim the lights.
What you will miss most:
The space – this townhouse got it right. There is so much room. TONS! Peacefulness – for what may appear so close to Aurora Bridge by map, the place is completely blocked from Highway 99. Yes, you CAN sit on the deck and enjoy your coffee. The real noise comes from the Lake Union water planes. Sure, there may be newer townhouses on the market, but NONE will have this city, the Cascades, Mt. Rainier views, my square footage, parking for two cars and accessibility to downtown and Greenlake (which you can walk to).
