The apartment is in an 1886 Victorian home! The neighborhood is ethnically diverse and easily accessible to downtown, the International district, the Eastside and UW. There's a grocery, drug store, fresh fish market/eat in counter within 5 blocks. There is also a museum just 2 blocks south of us...the Northwest African American Museum! Downtown is a 15 minute bike ride or a 10 minute walk and 8 minute bus ride from the house. We live in the apartment above & can help direct you as you need!
