KITCHEN / DINING
Located on the main living area (there are three levels total), this open concept space has a chef's kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. This flows directly to the dining area which includes 3 stools at the breakfast counter, and a dining table that seats 8 and expands to accommodate more.
Continuing from the dining room is the sunken living room, furnished with plenty of seating, a robust DirecTV package and a DVD player.
There is a queen size sleeper sofa (with highest end sofa bed mattress on the market) for larger groups. Enjoy our collection of games (Scrabble, cards, etc.) in front of the gas fireplace.
The living room opens to a small porch. This floor also features a powder room.
There's a full-size washer dryer
Bedroom 1: The entry level has two bedrooms. One has a queen bed, closet, and direct access to a spacious patio with BBQ and table.
Bedroom 2: The second bedroom offers great flexibility. It is furnished with three twin beds, including a twin over twin bunk bed (solid and sturdy --- not just for kids!).
Bedroom 3: On the top floor, you arrive at the full-floor master suite. It has a *king size bed* with dual nightstands, a large walk-in closet and a 5-piece spa bathroom with soaking tub, his and her sinks, and a toilet separated by a door for privacy. The room is so large that we even put a crib in there for added comfort for families. There is a balcony with views overlooking Madison Valley. On a clear day, enjoy the Cascade Mountain Range in the distance.
Bathroom 1: Powder room on the main living area.
Bathroom 2: Bedrooms 1 & 2 share a nearby bathroom with shower on the entry level.
Bathroom 3: En suite bathroom located in the master suite (BR 3).
All three levels have a balcony. The largest balcony has a table and a BBQ.
You enter into the building and into your home with a code of your choice that will be programmed into the electronic locks...no cumbersome organizing for a key exchange or concerns about arriving and departing at odd hours.
Air conditioning is a real rarity in Seattle. This home is equipped with window air conditioners in the living room and master bedroom.

This home is central to everything Madison Valley has to offer: great restaurants, parks, hiking, supermarkets, day spas, and more. Your hosts made Madison Valley their home when first settling in Seattle... and haven't looked back since.
We love walking the streets of this neighborhood and we will gladly suggest fun walks depending on your interests. Stroll to the beach at Madison Park. Walk by multi-million dollar estates. Discover hidden neighborhood gems such as the farmhouse with horses in the yard and the home that doubles as an eclectic art studio and antique truck gallery. Take a walk through the fabled Arboretum to Lake Washington.
Once you have worked up your appetite, enjoy the countless restaurants that Madison Valley ("Little Paris") has to offer. In addition to French gems, try our favorite tapas restaurant or the best Japanese food east of Tokyo. Take your morning coffee in one of numerous bakeries. Or opt for Thai, pan-Asian, craft pizza, Tex-Mex or more.
Our home provides easy access to Downtown (Pike Place Market, Seattle Art Museum, Seattle Great Wheel), Seattle Center (Space Needle, Chihuly Glass Museum), South Lake Union (MOHAI), University of Washington, and Capitol Hill. All are accessible by car, bus (numerous bus lines a few blocks from home), or for the adventurous, by foot.
If all of this touring (and eating) has you tired, pamper yourself with a visit to a day spa or nail salon. There are several of each within a few blocks of home and we are happy to point you in the right direction.
