A contemporary home in a quiet friendly neighborhood.
The house is centrally located just four miles from Microsoft, four miles from Chateau St Michelle/ Woodinville Wineries. It is only 20 minutes from downtown Seattle. Most nearby cities have weekly farmers markets. There are outdoor movies and several outdoor concert venues as well. Mount Rainier is a 2 hour drive away. There are many islands and salt water beaches that can be reached by car or ferry for day trips.
A nice, quiet neighborhood
The inside is open concept so it's easy to have a conversation with family and friends while cooking dinner.
The kitchen windows can be used as a pass through for dining outside.
Lots of dimmer switches to customize your lighting needs! Double click 2 times quickly to go to full power or one time to go to a pre-set. One gentle hit turns off the lights all the way.
You will have full use of the house and yard.
The house keys work in every door. Make sure to lower the front lock on the side of the door so you don't lock yourself out when you are home!
All bathroom towels are new and a variety of colors so they can be color coded for each family member to keep track of them.
Water plants/mow the lawn if you have time and enjoy doing so!
Interaction with guests
My Mom, Jane, will be your local host and available by cell. She lives nearby if you need to reach her for any reason.
We have friendly neighbors who might share their garden bounty!
Other things to note
There are many books available in the master bedroom. In the family room there are games, playing cards and children's books. We have a few tennis racquets and balls, one bike, badminton racquets and a few golf clubs with foam balls for fun in the backyard. Just ask Jane if you are nterested!
There is no tv except for a DVD player and a nearby Redbox at a very close Walgreens/Safeway grocery store. You can always watch online!

Please be careful of the granite counters and natural stone in the bathrooms. If cleaning products are left for long periods of time damage can be done even to the granite! The gas cooktop is also easily prone to get scratched so use extra clean paper towels if necessary but not scrubber parts of sponges!
House does not have air conditioning but it does have a whole house fan that can be used during the day with all the skylights and windows closed. In the early evening when the temperature in the house is almost the same as outside it's better to open all windows and skylights to allow the wind to cool down the house! We usually leave most windows and skylights especially with the master bedroom window open all night which cools the house down a lot! Drop the thermostat bottom pad to make sure setting is on "cool" and fan from auto to "on" and you should hear the fan start. There is an electrostatic dust particle "zapper" so you
might hear snapping sounds but everything is ok!!
*small parties are allowed if not too loud or late into the evening so our neighbors are not disturbed!

Jane Pickering, Kristy's Mom, will be your host if you need anything at all!
Enjoy your stay!!
