  • LOCATION

    Situated in between outdoor amenities and city convenience, from here it’s easy to access everything from parks and gardens to shopping and transit. Aurora Ave N is only a 3-minute drive away, and here you’ll find places like Safeway, LA Fitness, JOANN Fabrics & Crafts, PetSmart, Lowe’s, and several other shops, eateries, and services all no more than a 5-minute drive away. Additionally, Shoreline Community College (4 min), Northgate Mall (6 min), and Downtown Seattle (18 min) are all easily accessible from here as well!

  • COMMUTE

    For those who need to head into Downtown Seattle or South Lake Union for work, this particular location presents several great commuting options. Highway 99 is just 3 minutes from home and Interstate-5 is only 5 minutes away, giving you a couple of easy options to zip right into the heart of Downtown. The #21 bus picks up right around the corner on Greenwood Avenue and takes you straight to 3rd Ave in Downtown Seattle, and the Light Rail Station coming to Northgate in 2021 presents another commuting opportunity. This future Light Rail Stop is only a 7-minute drive from home, giving you a fantastic way to bypass any traffic (plus, imagine being able to hop on the Light Rail all the way to Seatac Airport!). You’re also only 0.3 miles from the Interurban Trail for all you bike connoisseurs.

  • FRESH & UPDATED

    Built in 1949, this home-sweet-home shows off a long list of smart & stylish upgrades that ensures it’s ready to take on the future! Not only have both of the bathrooms been completely transformed, but you’ll also find new kitchen counters, new light fixtures, new paint, a new water heater, a new furnace, new landscaping, a newer roof, double pane vinyl windows, and refinished hardwood floors all in the mix.

  • OUTDOOR BEAUTY

    Nestled on 0.25 acres, this property offers plenty of outdoor space for you to cultivate and call your own—the flat yard offers a park-like setting where you can create the ultimate getaway! Let pets and little ones play in the lush backyard to their heart’s content, and grow fresh fruits and veggies in your urban garden. You’re also just minutes to local outdoor destinations, making it easy to enjoy the fresh air and stay active. The Elisabeth Carey Miller Botanical Garden is just 0.6 miles away, and just beyond that you’ll find the Seattle Golf Club. There are also several other smaller parks in the area, but the incredible 220-acre Carkeek Park along the shoreline is a definite standout. This huge park includes a beach, hiking trails, picnic shelters, a playground, an orchard, and plenty of parking within the park.
