This is a craftsman style three bedroom, three bathroom house on a quiet street. A big sunny front porch, back deck, and fenced front and back yards provide pleasant and private outdoor spaces. The house is two stories plus a very nicely finished lower level/basement. On the top story, there's a master bedroom and bathroom accessible by the spiral staircase. On the main level, you'll find the living room, dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom. One of the bedrooms is a kids' (or kid at heart) bunkbed room. The other bedroom has one double bed. The full kitchen has modern stainless steel appliances and gas range. The dining room table expands to be truly huge, seating up to 8 if needed. The living room has some cozy lazyboy reclining furniture and a wood burning fireplace. The lower level is accessed by some steep stairs off the kitchen, it contains a queen sleeper sofa, a big screen plasma TV, and a bathroom equipped with washer/dryer. The lower level also has its own exit leading to the backyard. The house and yard are professionally managed so they are impeccably clean and well cared for.
Seattle is a city built around neighborhoods. You haven't truly experienced the city without visiting at least one. The Greenwood neighborhood has much in common with the others , while also having its own distinct character. 82nd street is quiet and family friendly. It is walkable to great restaurants, coffee shops, grocery stores, and parks. It is connected by frequent public transit to downtown and the airport.
IMPORTANT NOTE - PLEASE READ THIS: the house is on a quiet residential street. Big, loud, and/or late night parties will NOT be fun at this house, because the neighbors WILL be upset, they WILL come knocking, and they WILL call the owner and property manager to put a stop to the party. This has happened several times. This situation is seriously NOT FUN for everyone involved, especially the guests at the house and the neighbors. For your own sake and for the sake of your fun-loving friends, PLEASE DO NOT RENT THIS HOUSE FOR PARTIES. That said, reasonable, small family gatherings of the quiet and respectful type (you know what we mean) will be no problem.
Green lake park, Woodland Park Zoo, and several smaller "pocket parks" are walkable from the house, as are numerous shops and restaurants. The route #5 bus on Greenwood Avenue goes south to downtown via the Woodland Park Zoo and the Fremont neighborhood. The #48 bus goes west along 85th street to the University of Washington, or east towards Golden Gardens beach. Washington highway 99 (Aurora Ave.) is the best way to get downtown by car. Seattle has convenient light rail service between downtown and the airport. The light rail stops in the downtown bus tunnel underneath Westlake shopping center.
Other Things to Note
Absolutely no smoking inside.
ABSOLUTELY NO BIG, LOUD AND/OR LATE NIGHT PARTIES.
