Michael Ackerman, Melissa Clark and Hania Younis are thrilled to present their new West Seattle listing – a sweet and charming bungalow with jaw dropping westerly views and a rare feeling of tranquil privacy!
Relax on your gracious wrap around deck and enjoy the mesmerizing views of Puget Sound, mountains and daily sunsets. Pop down to Alki Beach and grab a slice of your favorite indulgence at Pegasus Pizza. Go for an invigorating swim in Coleman Pool (its heated salt water!) in nearby Lincoln Park.
West Seattle, and especially the Alki neighborhood, has always been a magnet for energy, vitality and fun. The area is filled to the brim with exciting restaurants, bars, coffee houses and parks. 3615 60th Ave SW was first introduced to this spot in 1915, and served as a “summer home” to wealthy Seattleites who would vacation here to get away from the hectic city life. The current owners have adored their time here, but have decided that it is time to present the home to its next resident. Endearing. Calm. Cheerful.
This sun-dappled home has been beautifully maintained and offers classic features as well as relevant updates. The views, that are captivating from almost every room in the home, are the main attraction. You will be endlessly entertained by the compelling views of the Puget Sound, Olympic Mountains, and the Washington State Ferries as they peacefully glide passed your vantage point. You will truly feel like you are on vacation every day of the year. Love a good sunset? Who doesn’t! Get ready to bask in the gentle glow of the setting sun each evening and enjoy the parade of unique “sky shows” that await.
The main level of the home features lovely fir floors that reflect the sweet classic charm of the home. South and west facing walls of windows let in brilliant light no matter what the weather has decided to do. Your front row seat to panoramic views of the Sound and mountains is available for you at any time. The welcoming living room presents a cozy wood burning fireplace and engaging box beam ceilings. Curl up on the sofa with a warm cup of tea and enjoy that latest best selling novel. The dining area is good size and will accommodate a large party as well as an intimate meal for smaller groups. Your guests will never get a better view than they will when invited over for a dinner here. The updated and well designed kitchen will make you want to be a better cook even if it not your thing with its quartz counter tops and leaded glass display cabinets. An inviting eating nook is featured as well and is adjacent to the handy utility room area. A remodeled full bath with classic subway tiles, custom period floor tiling and a lovely skylight can be found here as well.
The upper level is comprised of the romantic master bedroom. This generously sized space offers plenty of room for any size bed, a sitting or desk area, and multiple closets that will satisfy even the most dedicated fashoinista. This private haven will make you feel like there is no one else around, and offers breathtaking panoramic views of the Sound, mountains and sunsets. Watch the lights of the ferries dance on the water after dark as you drift off to sleep. Peaceful. Serene. Lovely.
The lower level has its own entrance and houses another bedroom. This flexible space can be used for a variety of uses: guest quarters; home office; AirBNB? The choice is yours. A tiled 3/4 bath lives here as well. The views on this level are just as impressive as the main and upper levels of the home so your guests will feel spoiled every minute they spend here. The outside deck that wraps around the front half of the home, creates amazing added square footage to your living experience. You will want to be out on it virtually every day between July and October! There are some views that are so mesmerizing and calming that you never want to be away from them. Warning: this is one of those views.
This home exudes privacy but is also so close to all the restaurants, bars and coffee houses in Alki. It is rare to find a home that feels so far away from the hustle and bustle of city life but is also connected to fun and interesting public places to hang out. Lincoln Park and Coleman Pool are just two of the many attractions in the area to keep you entertained.
Please stop in to see this unique and marvelous gem. Sometimes the very best gifts come in smaller packages…
