The room can be available furnished or unfurnished. it has a chalkboard wall, a nice sized walk-in closet, and two south-facing windows. The bathroom is modern, with a bathtub/shower, toilet, and one sink; a washer/dryer unit is also on the top floor. Downstairs is an open floorplan with a second bathroom (sink and toilet), Closet, modern kitchen, fireplace (gas), and a dining area and living room area with a designer couch system. Several south-facing windows and another covered deck with lots of plants make it look very cozy. The kitchen has a gas range, stainless steel fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, etc. The townhouse-style building has three stories with a hair salon on the ground floor, and the two-story apartment is above. The setting is unique and the neighborhood is very friendly, and everything is walkable; the house is close to the Zoo and Woodland Park / Greenlake and also the Ship canal. Take bus 5 to downtown, or bike around Lake Union; Take bus 44 to UW or bike on the Burke Gilman Trail to Ballard. There is a bike rack in the ground floor storage room.

What I'm looking for in a roommate

Most of all I am looking for a friendly roommate to get along with, someone who is mature not necessarily in terms of age but character. Someone who doesn't mind conversations about all kinds of issues. I am a private person and respect others' privacy as well. Please be open-minded, respectful, and honest. I currently work from home due to COVID19 and don't mind if my roommate needs to work from home as well. Since we will share bathrooms and kitchen a good sense of cleanliness is important to me. Please don't be messy. I hope my roommate also does appreciate that the house is not cluttered.

I am a middle-aged professional and I teach at Seattle University in environmental sciences (online these days). I love to draw and paint and you will find lots of art in the house. I am physically active (biking, hiking, yoga) and also enjoy cultural events at UW or downtown. I have many plants on the huge decks of the house and love taking care of them. Once in a while, I will have friends over for dinner or a drink and the neighbors get together in the courtyard a few times in summer. Otherwise, I am a pretty quiet person, and some weekends you will hear me talk in German with my family and friends. I am not very confrontational and like to talk things through. One thing I have an issue with is clutter and messiness. I do like to cook and like to eat fresh.
