Required from the Rooftops


One way to get a view in West Seattle is to get up high!

I’ve been noticing lately that roof top decks have become de rigueur in new construction townhomes throughout Seattle. They provide outside space which is more and more at a premium, and, sometimes, they provide views all around.

A Sweeping Sensation


West Seattle arguably features the best views in Seattle: the stunning downtown skyline, the Space Needle, ferries, cargo ships, airborne entities -large, small, and feathered. When you can look out your window and see all this and more, it’s hard name a rival outlook.


At the crest of the hill above Alki beach, this view home for sale has the added inducement of being an utterly romantic Mediterranean villa with a red tile roof, my favorite old house style. Rather rare for Seattle.GetMedia.ashx

Life Is A Beach


Imagine calling a Puget Sound beach your home sweet home.

Extra sweet, I say.


Live four doors south of the Fauntleroy Ferry dock in this classic ’70’s style beach house.



Many groovy original elements like weathered cedar siding and brick floors mindfully cohabitate with updated kitchen and baths.


And what a true delight to have this active marine view out all your windows, especially on a summer day.
