About the property

New Home (5bed/3ba) + Alaska Junction/Alki Beach + 10 Min. to Dwtn + July Ope

This West Seattle Genesee Hill home is a large two story home. House has 5 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. Newly renovated (finished January 2017), open concept kitchen in a bright and quiet neighborhood street. Large family room with flatscreen entertainment area plus a large master bedroom/bathroom suite upstairs. We are in a family-friendly neighborhood, so want to be respectful of our neighbors (friends of ours). Please no unregistered guests or unreasonably loud parties.

This house is conveniently located in West Seattle in the highly desirable peaceful Genesee Hill neighborhood. It is near many restaurants in the famous Alaska Junction restaurants/bars just a few blocks away and home is in a scenic, quiet, and friendly neighborhood.

This is our primary residence - our home is a two story 2,400+ sq ft house on a sizeable 5,300 sq foot lot with a front and backyard. The entire home was completely renovated and upgraded in January 2017. It has a nice, open concept kitchen with quartz countertops, new stainless steel appliances (including an extremely quiet Bosch dishwasher and 36 inch range), plus a latte machine!

Beds include: King, Queen, Twin (and space for twin fold out mattress we have), Twin and we will have a nice queen size murphy bed (regular mattress, not thin mattress) in the 4th bedroom upstairs during this rental period. The master bedroom (with king bed) has an en-suite bathroom with a large Jacuzzi bathtub (jets and bubbles) and double shower. Living room glass wall opens up to new back patio with a barbecue. There is a small view of Puget Sound and the ferries from the master bedroom upstairs.

There is a new 60-inch flat panel Smart TV on main floor and 50 inch Smart TV upstairs. House has brand new laundry machines and games/toys for various aged children. Enjoy amazing morning sunshine in the downstairs front living room with 3 large windows as well as sunsets from our back family room and all upstairs rooms.

The large back patio has a table and seating for six where you can watch the sunset and BBQ. The fully fenced back yard great for relaxing, throwing a football, or watching kids play. Enjoy the nice quiet street with little traffic, friendly neighbors, and fantastic views over the water within a couple minute walk in multiple directions. Parking at our house is easy, you can always find parking on the street directly in front of our house.

We live in a quiet higher-end residental neighborhood. We are close friends with our neighbors. They will contact us if anything seems "off". Sorry - no overly loud parties!

Also included is a property manual and brochures with suggestions of what to do during your visit including maps and restaurant recommendations. If you are bringing your young children we have a portable highchair, pack and play and a fold out mattress for bedroom 2. You can use the items free of charge (please let us know if you want to use it) and also includes toys, games, books, kids eating items with the home.

About Amy Huey

Our family has lived in Seattle for 10 years. I work downtown and my wife works even harder taking care of our three elementary aged children.

Amy Huey purchased this house in 2007

Why Amy Huey chose Alki

This home is our primary residence and we love our community! When we travel we love to stay in neighborhood settings in an urban area. Our house is the perfect fit for this as we love living close to restaurants, shopping and downtown Seattle while retaining a quiet community neighborhood feel. Alki beach is located just down the hill and boasts fantastic restaurants, walking/biking paths, people-watching, and absolutely stunning views with the Olympic mountains as its backdrop. We are renting our home this summer when we travel abroad and would love to share our home with people visiting Seattle or needing a home to relocate to temporarily. We have family in town to help with anything that may unexpectedly arise about the home.

What makes this house unique

The best part of this house in the summer is the private back yard. We are a block away from an amazing ocean view and the quiet ambiance of our neighborhood surrounded by trees is a peaceful retreat from the city. Or if you want to get out, head a few blocks away for local nightlife or a few miles away to downtown Seattle. We love our proximity to Alki Beach (only 2 minutes by car), which has a festive summer atmosphere that has something to offer all ages.

Great home!

  • 5 of 5

Home was a perfect place to use for our week's vacation in Seattle. Quiet neighborhood and close to many amenities, restaurants and easy access to highways and downtown Seattle. Home was set up perfectly for us (4 adults) with plenty of space, great kitchen, etc. close to an excellent Italian restaurant - La Rustica and a casual one - Copper Coin. Small ferry into Seattle was super convenient. Amy was a great host, very attentive to our needs. Thanks.

  • 4 of 5

Great location. The home gave an inviting and homey feeling. Nice spacious kitchen. We all loved the welcome basket full of goodies and fresh picked flowers that was displayed in the bathroom and kitchen. extremely grateful for the fans you have placed in the bedrooms since yall were having a heatwave in Seattle. A must eat a Hawaiian fried pork sandwich at Marination located on Harbor Ave SW.. Fantastic!

Thank you again for opening your home to my family and friends.
