Overview

About the property

Detached, private Garden Studio close to downtown and I-5

Newly renovated, detached garden apartment in quiet, tree-filled Wedgwood neighborhood. Separate building with private entrance in completely fenced yard. Rose arbors, lush plantings, multiple seating areas include a cushioned glider, marble table for outdoor dining, reading nook, and a restful hammock. Our yard is a Certified Backyard Wildlife Habitat, so you may see lots of birds, including overwintering hummingbirds.

Great location and free parking in our driveway—6 miles from downtown, 1.5 miles from I-5, 3 miles from the U. of Washington and Childrens Hospital, 2.4 miles to the unique U-Village Shopping Center, Whole Foods, and Trader Joe’s, and 4 minutes' walk to the bus that takes you to the U- District, MetroLink Light Rail, and Downtown. We are 13 miles from the Woodinville Winery Tours and a few miles from two beautiful parks and swimming areas. Take the Garden Studio picnic basket, bicycles, camp chairs and towels for a day at the beach at Matthews Beach or Magnuson Park.

Pagliacci Pizza, voted the Best in Seattle, is in our neighborhood, as are Javasti Creperie, Zaina Gyros/Falafel, Chiang's Gourmet Chinese, Thai One On, Elliott Bay Brewery, Mr. Villa Mexican, Ravenleaf Public House, Little Dough Restaurant, Toyoda Sushi, Fiddler's Inn, Top Pot Hand-Forged Doughnuts, bakeries and coffeehouses, and legal marijuana is less than 3 minutes away.

The Garden Studio features full air conditioning and heating, complete kitchen including a starter pack of organic coffee, Breville milk heater/frother for cappuccino or hot cocoa, tea, filtered water on tap, toaster oven, microwave, full stove/oven, popcorn popper, crockpot, wok, full spice rack, baking supplies, good quality cookware and knives, and every tool needed for the discerning cook. Black granite countertops, wood floor, skylights and high ceilings create a lovely open space.

The living room has a leather sofa, daybed (another sleeping option with its own linens), Persian wool rug, 40” flat-screen tv with headphone option, Apple TV, a dvd library (70 select titles), books, music, and games, and wireless fiber-optic internet throughout Studio and Garden.

The bedroom features an extremely comfortable all-natural latex queen mattress with nice-quality linens and cotton duvets, a dresser, and an armoire for hanging clothes. There are reading lights all over the Studio, and almost all lamps are dimmable to create the perfect ambience. Beautiful natural light streams through skylights, screened windows and French doors, and blinds open from top and bottom.

There is a new front-load washer and a dryer for your convenience.

The bathroom has a radiant-heat, mosaic-tiled floor, plush cotton towels, a glass-door shower, excellent lighting, and toiletries. Original art adorns the walls. Everything is simple, clean, bright and comfortable. We hope you enjoy your stay at The Garden Studio!

This sweet little garden studio has been artfully decorated to be a relaxing and delightful retreat.

  • 5 of 5

We had a most wonderful stay at the garden studio where we enjoyed the zen like decor and mood of the Wedgewood retreat. Do not hesitate to book this lovely place. It sparkles with cleanliness. Your every need has been anticipated and most likely planned for. I loved the warmth of the radiant heat in the bathroom floors morning and night. The lovely skylights bring in light and the pitter patter of the rain. The talent of the owner/artist apparent in several impressive pieces of art on the walls. Oh did I mention the beautiful garden area - must be outstanding in the spring/summer. I have no need to look for another place for future rental needs. If I ever need a place in Seattle again I will first look to see if this place is available. Kudos to Julie and Dick for providing an amazing place like this for people to rent.

Wonderful Oasis

  • 5 of 5

The Garden Studio was a delightful place for our month-long stay, the nicest of four HomeAway properties we have used in Seattle. It offers quiet privacy in a well-appointed suite, conveniently located for our purposes. Julie and Dick are exemplary hosts; they were prompt and gracious in responding to our inquiries. Everything is comfortable - furniture, linens for bed/kitchen/bath, lighting, power for devices. Using the kitchen was an important part of our stay; it met our needs for meals and holiday baking. Easy access to laundry facilities was a definite plus, given the length of our stay. Even in winter, the outside is beautiful, but we look forward to coming back in the spring, when we will have an opportunity to enjoy the outdoor amenities of this wonderful place.

About Julie Gaskill & Dick Carter

We are midwesterners who moved to Seattle after living in France for seven years. We crisscrossed the country, and chose Seattle over every other place we visited. It's a wonderful city full of bookstores, theaters, coffeehouses, restaurants, friendly people and imagination. This is a city that is seriously into food. Ask us about the many bakeries, pubs and and restaurants that are just a few minutes' drive (or 10-20 minutes' walk) away.

Julie Gaskill & Dick Carter purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Julie Gaskill & Dick Carter chose Wedgwood

We chose NE Seattle because despite its proximity to downtown (6 miles), it is full of older-growth trees and wildlife. We've seen great blue herons and bald eagles on our street. We're only 4 minutes' walk from the direct bus to U. of Washington and downtown, and a mile from the express lanes on I-5 South. We walk our mini-poodle Louie through our gorgeous Wedgwood neighborhood every day (if you'd like to meet our sweet little guy, just ask).

What makes this apartment unique

The Garden Studio is a separate, private building in a beautifully planted, fully fenced yard. Both the Garden and Studio are designed for optimal light, with almost all lamps dimmable in the Studio, blinds that open from top or bottom, multiple windows with transoms, and two skylights. The Garden Studio features a new, quiet heating and air-conditioning unit, screened windows, multiple patios to relax, glide or swing in a hammock, and a fully equipped cook's kitchen.

You can drive, take Shuttle Express or taxi to NE Seattle from the airport in 1/2 hour (20 miles), or take Metro Link Light Rail to the downtown University Street Station (40 min.), then the 312 or 522 bus North (40 min.), then 4-10 minutes' walk to The Garden Studio. We hope you enjoy your stay.

The Garden Studio has free parking in our driveway in front of the house. It is only several minutes' drive from swimming beaches on Lake Washington, scenic walking/biking trails, an attractive outdoor shopping center (U. Village), several farmers markets, and a wide range of restaurants. Nearby are Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, and several PCCs, the largest consumer-owned natural food co-op in the country. Their food is locally sourced, organic, and extremely fresh. The deli serves delicious, healthy food for take-out. Try the cashew chicken salad or the cheesy chalupas.
