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 an urban view of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains!

Hardwood floors, large area rugs and tasteful furnishings invite you in to curl up next to the toasty gas fireplace in the winter or bask on the sunny deck, in the summer. BBQ on your Stok charcoal 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 appointed!

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.

The Sweet Orange is fantastically located in "The Junction" neighborhood of West Seattle: an urban village of quiet residential homes with a walkable core of shops, pubs, and restaurants galore...just around the corner. Enjoy live theater (Arts West) and the local Sunday Farmer's Market. Walk to the famous Bakery Nouveau on your way a local coffee shops or grab breakfast at Easy Street records. Hop down to the Metro bus hub for travel throughout the city, or shuttle to the downtown Water Taxi.. You can be in the center of downtown or ready for games at both stadiums, in 15 minutes, by bus or car (outside of rush hour, of course). There are 2 grocery stores, 2 drugstores and 2 health clubs just 2 blocks away!. An excellent natural food co-op is 1 mile down California Ave. The butcher and the fish market are 1/2 mile. Everything you need is close...but not too close for peace and quite.

Hop on a ferry to Vashon Island and the Olympic peninsula or simply watch for sea otters at the city's best Lincoln Park, less than 1 mile away. Spend the day at Alki beach, only 2 miles away. Enjoy an 18-hole urban golf course 1/2 mile from the house. While the Orange is a great home base for visiting elsewhere, but you really may never want to leave West Seattle!

For larger groups, add on the totally cozy and artsy 900 sq. ft. mother-in-law apartment, with another 2 BR/1BA, on the lower level and a separate entrance. The Tangerine Dream has 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.

If the color Orange is starting to warm up to you, check it out. Feel free to call or e-mail Cassie with questions or for tips to enjoy 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!
