Our home is tucked away on a quiet, wooded hillside in the Columbia City neighborhood, 5 miles south of downtown Seattle. The downhill walk to its core shops and restaurants is 8 minutes, and just 15 minutes to the light rail serving downtown Seattle and the airport. Designed to passivhaus standards, our recently completed addition includes an in-law apartment in the lower level, and our family of four (two boys ages 10 & 12) is eager to share it with visitors to the Emerald City.

This place was fantastic! The location, the décor, the layout, the cleanliness, the view, the view and the view, all magnificent! The apartment, though short on square footage, feels so much roomier with its split-level floorplan, and each area from the bedroom to living room to …
