Hardwood flooring throughout, large living room with convenient gas fireplace, spacious sun porch with magnificent view of Lake Washington, Bellevue skyline and mountains.

About the neighborhood:
Neighborhood is close to Capitol Hill, Central District and the Madrona restaurants area. It is walking distance to wooded trails to Lake Washington. Douglass Truth Library, Mountain Flow Yoga Center, Red Apple grocery store, a couple of coffee shops,, Lowe's and Walgreen's.

Located three miles east of Pioneer Square, Leschi draws people from nearby downtown Seattle. Named after a local Nisqually chief, Leschi has a history dating back centuries--to when it served as a seasonal Duwamish tribe settlement. By the 1890s, Leschi Park and the lakefront served as a vacation and leisure destination for local European settlers. As the neighborhood continued to develop, people started to move here and call Leschi their home.

Today, the Leschi waterfront still draws outdoor-activity seekers, and two parks--Leschi Park and Frink Park--provide plenty of space in which to play. In addition to amazing views of Lake Washington, Leschi is surrounded by parks, marinas, water sports, cafes and wonderful routes for bicyclists, runners and walkers.

But outdoor sports aren't the only draw. Leschi holds two small business cores. The area along Lakeside Avenue South is home to Leschi Market, a gym and restaurants such as Daniel's Broiler, BluWater Bistro and Starbucks. A smaller commercial area on the Leschi-Mount Baker Ridge at 31st Avenue offers a spa, financial offices, a pet store and the Re-Past Bakery and Café.

Even with its laid-back, suburban vibe, Leschi is just a 10-minute drive from the bustling activity of downtown Seattle, and its proximity to the Interstate-90 floating bridge allows for easy access to the Eastside. Leschi's architectural medley and diversity of residents make this waterfront enclave perfect for urban-minded neighborhood living.

Easy access to I-90, highways, and bus lines. Several bus routes nearby go to various areas including Capitol Hill, downtown, Queen Anne, south Seattle, University District, etc. (#2, 3, 4, 8, 14, 27 and 48).

Shared house living: Typically, our housemates are socially-minded, responsible, working professionals who enjoy living in a nice place with other respectful individuals. Typically, our short-term furnished approach to housing attracts people in transitional times of life, and new arrivals, including many contract workers or international visitors--really anyone who wants a convenient, hassle-free lifestyle without having to purchase or bring a lot of stuff into a household and without having to commit to a long-term lease. Current housemates include a musician, massage therapist, an REI engineer, and myself, a former arts funder turned real estate entrepreneur. Otherwise, housemates come and go, but they are usually a very fun and interesting mix of personalities, nationalities and backgrounds. All tenants must submit an application, with screening on background, credit, income and rental history. I am a professional property manager, and it is my job to see to it that there is a good mix of tenants--I live here too!
