A furnished home in the Puget Ridge Cohousing community will be available for a six to eight month rental starting in Jan or Feb 2018 while we will be taking an extended trip. The rental is $1900 per month including all utilities. We are looking for people interested in living in cohousing and participating in community activities while living here.
Our 2 bedroom, 2 bath, 1300 sq. ft. town house is situated in a park-like setting in urban Seattle about 20 minutes from the city center by bus or car. Both floors of the house have excellent natural light; the downstairs is an open plan with the dining room open to the kitchen, and living room open to the dining area. The French doors in the living room open to a TV room with couch that folds out into a queen sized bed. The small but well-designed and well equipped kitchen has a modern gas range, dishwasher and microwave oven. Upstairs is a large master bedroom, large bathroom with a deep tub and shower, a second bedroom with a queen size bed, and an office with two desks, Ethernet, and printer. WiFi is available throughout the house; a washer and dryer are shared with downstairs neighbors and located on a lower level. There is a small private deck off the living room with table and chairs and a lovely grape arbor to sit and enjoy the morning sun with breakfast, a small patio for afternoon sun, and a side courtyard with a dining table and gas grill. Our adult son and his partner will be living in the downstairs basement apartment.
The house is located in an intentional community, Puget Ridge Cohousing built in 1994, where people know their neighbors and collaboratively manage and maintain the community. The town houses on the beautifully landscaped 2½ acre site face each other across paths and courtyards; there are no cars on the site, and multiple outside play areas. The community consists of 25 households, with people of all ages, including children and young adults. We have a shared Common House which has a large kitchen and dining area for community meals and events, a meeting space, laundry, play area and well equipped shop. You will be warmly welcomed by community members, and invited to participate in meals, work parties, and other activities.
Puget Ridge Cohousing is located in West Seattle, a large area that encompasses about 20% of the city. It is one block from a bus stop with buses that run to downtown Seattle and other parts of West Seattle, and a ten minute walk to a stop with more frequent buses. Shopping is about 10 minutes away by car or by bus, or a 30 minute walk. Our home is about three miles from Lincoln Park, a beautiful city park with a beach and old growth forest looking out over Puget Sound and the best Olympic Mountain views in Seattle.
