Charming 3-bedroom Seattle house in walkable Ballard neighborhood

We will be gone for a few months and are looking for people who will take good care of our beautiful home. It could be rented out furnished or unfurnished for up to a couple of months.

The basics:
-- 1,500 square feet (plus an unfinished basement)
-- 3 bedrooms (all on second level with full-height ceilings)
-- 1.75 bathrooms (one on first floor, one on second)
-- living room
-- dining room
-- open kitchen (with gas stove, dishwasher, etc)
-- walk-in pantry
-- washer and dryer
-- storage space in basement
-- two-car detached garage and long driveway
-- sheltered front porch
-- partially fenced-in backyard with deck, patio, lawn, lots of greenery, and some room for gardening
-- wood floors throughout, plus tile floors in bathrooms and tiled entryway by back door
-- 10-foot ceilings on main floor
-- custom wooden cabinetry in kitchen
-- new gas furnace
-- heated floor in main bathroom

The perfect blend of old and new, our 1907 house has been fully renovated and now offers updated systems alongside restored wood, period details, and high ceilings. The main floor features an entryway, open kitchen, dining room, living room, and bathroom with shower. Upstairs has three full-height bedrooms and a full bathroom with a bathtub/shower. There's good light throughout the house. There's a porch in front where you can sit back and relax. There’s also a partially fenced-in backyard with a lawn and greenery. We have a café table and chairs and a shade umbrella for the back deck, and a picnic table for the back patio. There’s some room for gardening if you’re interested.

We have a two-car garage and a long driveway, providing plenty of off-street parking—a rarity in central Ballard.

The open-plan kitchen features custom wood cabinetry, dishwasher, gas stove, convection oven, microwave, and warming drawer. The clothes washer and dryer are in the unfinished basement, where there is also storage space. The gas furnace is new. There’s a heated floor in the upstairs bathroom.

The neighborhood, Ballard, is one of the most popular and desirable in Seattle. Our house is on a quiet residential street, yet within easy walking distance of Ballard's commercial center, grocery stores, and much else. Golden Gardens, Seattle's best beach, is just two miles away.

This is one of the few remaining classic Craftsman houses with yards in central Ballard—a green oasis in the heart of the urban village. Most of the houses around us are larger and newer, but contain friendly neighbors. Our block is quiet and peaceful.

It's about a 15-minute drive from our house to downtown (5.5 miles), South Lake Union (5 miles), or the University of Washington-Seattle (4 miles). There's easy access to bus lines that take you directly to all of those neighborhoods and others as well. And you can easily bike to UW, with most of the route along an off-street bike path.
