Beyond the Curb: Bellevue home offers easy River City Living; couple wanted walkable neighborhood

When the owners of the home featured in this week’s episode of Beyond the Curb: River City Living wanted to downsize, they had only two requirements: a house with a garage and a walkable neighborhood. They found both near the river in Bellevue.

One of the benefits of moving to a smaller space, according to them, is that they took only the things they really love. After doing some renovations that included adding a fireplace in the living room, they decorated with a soothing color palette and hard-working materials.

Since they both retired early, they travel often, so they love that they can just “turn off the water and go.” When they return to their home, they pick right back up with their busy social lives that revolve around the shops and eateries in Bellevue’s charming business district.

They also enjoy what they call their “peek of the river,” watching paddle boats and rowers from their balcony. Because their home is both welcoming and easy to maintain, they host frequent gatherings and share their “go with the flow” lifestyle with their friends.
