Property description

In the heart of West Seattle, this turn of the century Sweet Orange Craftsman is available for your next visit! This colorful, cozy, carefully-crafted home has a spacious 1200 sq ft of living space with 2BR/1BA. A delightful bonus is a partial view of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains.

Hardwood floors, large custom rugs and tasteful furnishings invite you in. Curl up next to the toasty gas fireplace in the winter or bask on the sunny deck, in the summer. BBQ on your Stok grill or walk down the street to more than a dozen good eateries. Cook up a storm, if you are a home body. The kitchen is well stocked!

The comfortable king master bedroom adjoins a small sun porch, with a twin sofa pull-out. The sunny guest room opens with french doors to the view deck, with a patio umbrella. The house has all the usual amenities and more. It is super clean and well-cared for. Many little details create an atmosphere you can really settle into.

For larger groups, add on the totally cozy, artsy 900 square foot full Mother-in-Law suite, with another 2 BR/1BA of open floor plan, on the lower level. Tile mosaics and rich colors everywhere, with a huge master bedroom and bath. French doors open off the bright living room onto a large covered deck with table and chairs. The garden calls you out into the sun or bake inside next to the freestanding gas fireplace.

The Sweet Orange is two short blocks to the Junction - an urban village of shops, restaurants, and pubs, galore. We even have live theater, at Arts West. There is the metro bus hub for travel throughout the city, and a car share outlet a block away. Two grocery stores are right down the street. Everything is close...but not too close for peace and quite.

Around the corner, in The Junction, is the Sunday Farmer's Market, a local bakery, a yummy pie shop. An excellent natural food co-op is a mile down the street. Hop on a ferry to Vashon Island or the Olympic peninsula or watch for sea otters at the city's best Lincoln Park, less than a mile away. Spend the day at Alki beach, only 2 miles away. A fantastic, 18-hole urban golf course is a 3/4 mile from the house! The Orange is also super convenient to downtown and the water taxi, but you may never want to leave West Seattle. It is all right here!

Feel free to call or e-mail with questions or tips for enjoying the area.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: The Sweet Orange was my home for many years, and is now offered as a vacation rental. My heart, my creativity, and my passion for design have been invested over the years, resulting in an artistic, charming and comfortable home. Having been a life-long traveler for work and play, I know the importance of having a delightful respite home away from home. We are locals and available to guests, if they should need anything.

Why the Owner Chose West Seattle:
West Seattle is its own destination. Many of us who live here keep it local and only venture out of the neighborhood to play in the big city. West Seattle is valued, by some, as a bedroom community for downtowners seeking a slightly slower pace, but desiring quick access to work and the city nightlife and cultural happenings. The feeling here is a bit like a beach town, with all the fabulous views and cool hangouts. I've lived here 24 years and am still counting.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
'The house has great energy', many guests say. The rich colors and textures are a sensual delight. The garden is ever-expanding. Folks have often remarked how peaceful the view and residential setting is, while being centrally located in an urban neighborhood, 2 blocks from the local flavor - the West Seattle Junction. The super walkable location and fantastic bus system allow some guests to get around Seattle, efficiently, without a car. Be in the middle of downtown Seattle in 10 minutes. The airport is a breeze from here. Something for everyone!
