Manager info

Year Purchased: 1964

About: THE OWNERS: In the mid 60’s the Seattle skyline had the Space Needle to the North and The Smith Tower to the South. There was nothing tall in-between the two notable structures. This is when I purchased this property, thinking I would live in the small beach cottage a few years. As time elapsed Seattle was growing, memories were created that could not be made today. My children diving off the old Sea Crest Marina piers, mooring our boat steps from our front door, sailing across Elliot Bay to Seattle, are but a few. Years went by, the memories and stories flourished and I realized I loved the house and area and was destined to stay. The house was so small it needed to grow. The first growth spurt was in the mid 70’s, when the children and the house grew taller. Next came 1980, the year I met my future husband. We complemented each other’s passion for art and creating with space. The spirit of the house and its land generously continued giving us the opportunity to fulfill our visions and dreams, often in the face of local growth obstacles. Today the Marina and boats are gone, the Seattle skyline is magnificent, and the house is beyond recognition of its former self. It welcomes the multitude of changes it observes and the attention it gets, but sadly regrets the day it will be replaced by a Condo office. It deserves to be shared, through it you know the owners. Our home invites you to create your stories and memories. Enjoy!

Why West Seattle:
THE HOUSE: With numerous places to relax and enjoy the view, you will find yourself discovering new spaces to soothe your soul, be it by the waterfall amidst bamboo, the meditative Tea House, the tranquil Koi Pond, the back deck where you are one with nature, or the top City view deck where observing people and water craft will occupy and amuse you for hours. The walls throughout are adorned with the owner’s art and collections of Northwest Indian baskets and carvings, Navaho weavings, Mathew Patton pottery, Matt Stiger neon, vintage toy boats, and indigenous pieces from: Africa, Indonesia, Borneo, The Amazon, and Mexico. The house offers easy commutes to and from SeaTac airport, and the surrounding Seattle area. The Seattle Metro Bus system, a complimentary local shuttle, and Cars2go are within a block. You have 2 dedicated onsite parking spaces. You will enjoy all the amenities that accompany this fully equipped home, to suit the needs and desires you may have.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Superb Location, water taxi to Seattle waterfront, downtown, stadiums, museums, galleries and shopping. Beach activities and rentals, scuba diving, award winning restaurants, home has unique features with numerous places to relax and enjoy the stunning Seattle City Skyline.
