House in Seattle, USA

Our house is a 1911 Craftsman -- old for Seattle! We're on the corner and have an interesting selection of mature trees, shrubs and perennials surrounding the house. The back garden is very private and lovely, and there are several different seating areas to enjoy a glass of wine or a book or both. Our house has two floors and a basement, with one bedroom (with foldout sofa bed), bathroom (with a clawfoot tub and shower), living room, dining room, kitchen and TV/music room on the first floor, and another two bedrooms (one with a queen bed and the other has a twin bed), bathroom with sauna and a step-in shower), and small living area with TV/music on the second floor. The washer and dryer are in the basement, along with house supplies. We have plenty of books, CD's, comfortable chairs and couches, good lighting, tv's and sound systems to cater to your hobbies and interests. There's wifi and one computer you can use. The kitchen is well stocked with equipment and there's a gas stove.

We have enjoyed our 6 house exchanges tremendously, and make a big effort to be conscientious and responsible with other people’s houses. We have a Honda Accord which can also be part of the exchange. I’d prefer to keep our cat at home but she can be boarded if necessary. We leave a booklet outlining all of the house features and directions on how to use equipment, with information on restaurants and local activities. Our neighbors are helpful and can be contacted if there are questions or emergencies.

Our Neighbourhood

We live in Wallingford, a neighborhood ten minutes north of downtown and 10 minutes west of the University District by car or bus. We’re a ten minute walk from the zoo, Green Lake (a wonderful city park with great walking, boating and people watching), and Lake Union (a larger, more commercial, boat-connected lake with a large park, walking and bicycling paths). Our neighborhood has good restaurants, grocery stores, cleaners, coffeehouses, movie theaters, gyms, and other amenities within easy walking distance. Buses to downtown and points east and west are a block or two away from our house.
