Our Northwest Contemporary home has an open plan on the entry level living floor, with tree house views to Capitol Hill to the westt. We are located just off East Madison Street, the only Seattle thoroughfare to run from Puget Sound to Lake Washington, nearly across the street from the arboretum. The house comfortably sleeps six adults, with a master suite on the third floor, second master suite on the first floor, and Murphy-style pull down bed in the open room on the first floor. For families traveling with small children, the third floor study has a Pack'n Play bed and is conveniently close to parents.
