About this listing
Spacious, comfortable, vintage apartment close to all the Capitol Hill nightlife and just a few blocks from downtown. A 1-br that can turn into a large studio thanks to pocket doors. 1 queen bed and 2 spare twins means it can sleep 4 comfortably.
This apartment is a hidden Capitol Hill gem and one of the few left of its kind. The neighborhood is changing rapidly with developers tearing down beautiful old buildings at a staggering pace to make room for fancy new apartments with little character.
The apartment has high ceilings, bay windows, wood floors, and pocket doors that allow the space to have either a dedicated bedroom or become a large, open studio. One bathroom with a clawfoot bathtub and shower.
Full kitchen (refrigerator, gas stove, oven, toaster, microwave, plenty of plates/cups/utensils/napkins)
Most things you need for cooking (pots/pans, spices, cooking utensils, basic ingredients)
Internet (no tv or cable, sorry!)
Queen bed and two additional twin mattresses (each with pillows, sheets, and blankets).
Coin-op laundry in the basement (laundry detergent under my sink)
There is a parking garage for Seattle Central Community College two blocks away that costs $5 for 24 hours (an amazing deal!). It's on the corner of Pine and Harvard.
Interaction with guests
Depending on my schedule, I will either give you the key, leave it in a hiding spot, or have my friend who lives down the hall give it to you. And when I'm away you can contact this friend down the hall if you need anything.
Other things to note
My friend lives down the hall and he is willing to help out if you need anything.
There's a big apartment complex under construction on the same block and across the street. Construction starts around 730 AM on weekdays and sometimes on Saturdays. It doesn't bother most of the folks who live in my building but I use earplugs. I will provide (unused) earplugs for guests.
Noise has never been much of an issue but please be respectful of those who live above, below, and next to me. Please don't smoke. Dogs are allowed as long as they are well-trained and won't have any accidents. I don't have a dog but my building has no policy against pets. The kitchen has no fan so if you cook make sure to open a window. Also the oven is old and there is no indicator light to show if it is on or hot so make sure to turn it off if you use it!
