It's really hard to tell from photos just how spacious this is.The living and dining room flow together and feature 4 sets of French doors to the view.

This is so rare to find a view home that isn't perched on a steep sloped yard.  This lawn is surrounded by fruit trees and gardens.The back patio and garden shed, with fruit trees along the lawn.  There are apples, pears, cherries, and quince. Who would have thought that you could have a small orchard in view of the Space Needle!  The arbor is wine grapes, and there are grapes along the house here as well.This yard is surrounded by hedges, so it's very private- a little oasis in the city!The view over the yard to Elliott Bay.This shows the full height and 4 levels of the home from the back yard.

That lowest level with the single door is a basement area- tons of storage!!An aerial view looking at the back of the house and the yard.
