Open House Dates and Times:
Sunday, Oct. 5th, 1-4pm
Coffee Shop of Choice:
Early on the weekends we’ll head to Tully’s at Alki Beach. If we’re on the run we’ll hit the Starbucks drive-through up the hill. The rest of the time we’ll walk to Uptown Espresso or Java Bean.
Favorite Restaurants in the Area:
Spiro’s Pizza is usually our first choice. For breakfast or if we’re just in the mood for “the best milkshake in Seattle”, we’ll walk down the street to Luna Park Café. The rest of the time, depending on our mood, we’ll hit the Junction or Alki: Elliott Bay Brewery for burgers and beer, Mashiko for sushi, Husky Deli for ice cream, Coyotes for Mexican, or Spud’s for fish and chips.
Favorite Places to Go:
Lincoln Park is great for jogging by the water and is home to the saltwater Colman Pool. Our house overlooks the 13th green of the West Seattle golf course. It’s got some of the best views of any municipal course. We catch late-run movies up the hill at the Admiral Theater. When we’re in a shopping mood we usually pop down to Westwood Village or Burien. There are also a number of bus lines that can get us to Pike Place Market or Pioneer Square in just a few minutes.
Best Features of the Home:
We love all of the accents this home has. Clear fir trim, granite counter tops, stainless appliances, and gas fireplace and stove. Also rare for town homes in Seattle is a two car garage with a very wide drive way.
Has there been any remodeling since you purchased the home?:
This house is still pretty new, so it hasn’t needed much work. We added a garden and patio area that’s perfect for grilling and lounging on a nice day. On the inside, we repainted and we recoated the hardwoods.
The great room on the main level of the house is our favorite. The kitchen, dining room, and family room all kind of merge into a single space. It’s the perfect space for entertaining or just watching TV while you’re making dinner.
Most Romantic Spot:
The northern entrance to the Longfellow Creek Legacy Trail is steps away. It’s great in the evenings to walk through the Dragonfly Pavilion and Salmon Bone Bridge, past the creek, and through the woods. You almost forget you’re still in the city.
What’s in the neighborhood?:
It’s a mix of newer town homes and older homes with a lot of younger families and great neighbors. Allstar Fitness is a great fitness club three blocks away. The West Seattle Golf Course, Delridge Community Center, and Youngstown Cultural Arts Center are directly to the south. Alki Beach and the Admiral District are to the north. Coffee shops and restaurants are a short walk or drive away.
What you will miss most:
We’ll miss the convenience of this neighborhood. The West Seattle Bridge is a minute or two drive to the north, and we can usually get to work downtown in less than 15 minutes. There are bus lines blocks away on either side of us. There are a lot of great restaurants close by, and we loved being able to walk over to Allstar fitness for a workout anytime of the day. West Seattle is great because you’re so close to downtown, yet you feel like you’re in a different city. It was the perfect place for our young family.
