About this listing
This large daylight basement 1 BDRM MIL apartment is a street level walk up with its own private entrance. I live upstairs and work from home as a freelance photographer/videographer and designer. When I travel, I host quiet guests upstairs, too.

Secure, private and well-lit entry

Full bath, LUXURIOUS rain shower head with great water pressure, plush and abundant towels and hairdryer provided

Fresh herbs are available for clipping from the herb garden out front
Vintage Turntable/Tuner/Aux player with vintage records
Small but growing library of classic literature
Games and cards
If you don't know what you'd do without a TV, oven or a microwave, I'm sorry, but this isn't the place for you. But for those who appreciate quiet quality with a bit of a Ace Hotel meets thrift store chic aesthetic, you will feel right at home.
If you like to wake to the sound of chirping birds and enjoy charming old school comforts with access to great local delis, bars restaurants and shops, you'll enjoy staying here!
Interaction with guests
I like to give my guests lots of space to have their own autonomous experience, so interactions with my guests are usually kept to check in and check out. However, I'm happy to join for a local cocktail or engage more with guests if I'm around and they are up for it. I find most just want to be left alone to experience Seattle on their own, and since I work a lot, that works pretty well for everyone.

I am a photographer and designer (architectural/interior) who loves urban homesteading, cooking everything from scratch, and has one too many restoration projects in the works. I am a thrift and antique store JUNKIE.
I love creating spaces and experiences that surprise and delight people. I actively work to surround myself with things and experiences that look good, smell good, feel good, taste good and sound good -- and I love sharing the very best of what I find and learn in that pursuit with others!
My life motto: Life is short and I want to do it ALL!
