We love our home in a tranquil retreat setting close to downtown and also Discovery Park - 500+ acres with trail access to the beach - the best of both worlds.
Spend relaxing time in our private backyard yurt - surrounded by bamboo and dome skylight overhead - a hidden gem.
Metro Market grocery store is just a couple of blocks away.
There is a great trail system nearby to Ballard and The Locks and also the Seattle Outdoor Sculpture Park and the Pike Place Market.
Our downstairs area is 850 square feet with open concept kitchen / living room, skylights, large windows, vaulted ceilings and outdoor deck that give it a very open and spacious ambience.
The 1st bedroom is on the main floor. There is a Dutch door in the bedroom - receive the fresh marine air at night and listen to the morning birdsong. A convenient access to the private back deck.
The 2nd bedroom is a sleeping loft with a comfy mattress on the floor; please be aware that it requires your ability to climb an attic-type pulldown ladder for access and that it has low ceilings (approx 5ft). It's very cozy and has wonderful skylights and side-lights - a great place for sleeping, ideal for older children and yogis! The side-lights open to the yoga room below (mats are provided), and there is no door from that room into the main living area. Sound can travel through the open side-lights, but there is a feeling of privacy and separation from the rest of the house due to the fact it is on another level.
The 3rd bedroom / living space is the yurt where there is also a full-sized shikibuton mattress - it is wonderful for sleeping if you enjoy the idea of 'glamping' in the back garden amongst the bamboo. The yurt is insulated, has a skylight and windows you can open and has electricity (heat and lights) as well as a lot of natural light. Also equipped with yoga mats.

The property is a very lush, green oasis amidst the city setting; the entrance can be a bit difficult to find as there are privacy trees and bushes around the property. The street address is stenciled on the curb outside to help you find us. However, if you just park in front of the lushest yard you see - that's us! :)
I'm originally from Vancouver, Canada, but spent the last 21 years in Seattle where my husband and I own The Yoga Studio in Magnolia.
If you are into yoga, please visit the studio - it is 1/2 mile or, 10 minute walk away.
It is a hidden gem!
We also have lived in our 'Tranquility in Seattle' home for 21 years and have adored our hideaway - complete with yurt, yoga room and loft sleeping. We have lovingly remodeled it over the years and have included many green energy features - such as radiant floor heating in the kitchen, infrared heat in the living room, and vaulted ceilings and skylights - for passive solar heat in the winter months and cooling marine air flow breezes in the warmer months.
Our bathroom has been remodeled with subway tiles, natural slate floor and a spa bath to nourish you.
The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and granite countertops.
To keep our home 'tranquil' we have a smart TV available in the loft for all your Netflix, Hulu etc favorites (without access to cable).
The close proximity and access to the 500+ acre park less than a block away is priceless.
I am an award winning photographer with photos displayed in galleries nationally and internationally.
We hope you enjoy our 'photography gallery' on display in our home - all the photos are from Seattle and the Pacific NorthWest.
We are now in Santa Fe, New Mexico and hope to open a yoga studio 'southwest' here in the future.
We hope that you adore our Seattle home and environs as much as we do.
