Just past the dining room, you have a delightful kitchen with gas stove and more original built-ins and cabinetry. Beyond the kitchen is a large walk-through pantry which leads to the back patio for those who like to dine al fresco.

Neighborhood

Phinney Ridge is a neighborhood in north Seattle that separates Ballard from Green Lake. 

Literally positioned along a ridge, the neighborhood is named after this geological feature and the man who once owned this land, Guy C. Phinney, a lumber mill owner and real estate developer. 

Today, Phinney Ridge is a hopping little neighborhood with numerous shops and restaurants along the main north/south thoroughfare.  Its location is perfect for those who want the nature of Green Lake and the proximity to restaurants and cafes. 

Phinney Ridge is centrally located, so it is also an easy commute to downtown or most other popular neighborhoods of Seattle.
