Boat traffic is common, from personal watercraft to yachts, tugs and fishing vessels now famous on 'Deadliest Catch'. All passing through Hiram M. Chittenden Locks and park, which is a short walk away.

Discovery Park is a 15 min. walk west of this home. It is a 534 acre park containing 11.81 miles of walking trails. The Park contains Fort Lawton Historic District, United Indians Daybreak Star Cultural Center and the West Point Lighthouse at the West Waterfront.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Of the homes we have owned, this is by far the most fascinating and enjoyable! The waterfront is very active, local sights and great restaurants are within walking distance. A quick drive and you are in the heart of Seattle visiting Pike Place Market, the Space Needle or shopping. I think you will find this is the perfect location for your Seattle vacation.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I am no scientist, but I have read that in environments with salt tinged sea air (like this Waterfront) an abundance of negative ions(electrically charged atoms) are found, which increases the brains serotonin levels, thereby giving an overall feeling of well being and energy. That's pretty great!
