Side By Side

Duplexes for sale are somewhat rare to find in Seattle. Maybe this is because they are such a good investment, especially when well-located and well-kept, that investors who own them don’t easily let them go. So, check out this terrific opportunity.

Here is the perfect place to appreciate all these endless days of Northwest sunshine, Madrona’s hillside with Lake Washington and Mount Rainier views that will take your breath away. In this storybook neighborhood, find streets that are staircases, wooded and historic, winding their way down to the beach. I lived in Madrona for many years […]

Sunny Day Deal

It’s intoxicating, this suddenly summer weather. Which is the only reason I can think of that allows this sweet 1907 house at a really appealing price to still be available.

How Low Can It Go?

Monday morning tour took us to the Central District this morning. Now known as the Madison Valley, or Madrona, or sometimes other things, depending on who is naming it. But whichever neighborhood you consider this (I believe the listing agent is correct in calling it Madrona since its address is included in the Madrona Community […]
