This delightful Cape Cod home in West Seattle’s Fairmount Park neighborhood offers beautiful views, a variety of flexible spaces and a central location. Let’s explore!


The minute you enter the home, you’ll delight in the views ahead: facing west, take in the Puget Sound, the Olympic Mountains and amazing Pacific Northwest sunsets. The beauty, too, is that the views are seen from multiple rooms in the house, thanks to its thoughtful layout. Not to mention the expansive main level deck that is perfect for enjoying everyday living and also outdoor entertaining!


A cheerful front yard greets you immediately with lawn, mature evergreens and a beautiful maple tree. Enter the front door and admire the hardwood floors which grace the main level of this home throughout. A gracious foyer includes a coat closet and leads you into the bright, west-facing iving room which is graced with glass sliding doors to the expansive deck. Take in the views through this wall of windows! A cozy gas fireplace with brick-surround and a stately mantle complete this lovely room, then flowing into the adjoining dining space.

A sweet pass-through to the kitchen allows for easy entertaining and the ability to enjoy views while preparing meals! Complete with stainless steel appliances (gas stove!) and copious amounts of freshly-painted cabinets, this kitchen also offers the option of washer/dryer in this location if so desired. A beautiful set of Blomberg washer and dryer are currently stored in the lower level but can be reinstalled here if convenient for the new owners! Bar space allows for in-kitchen dining as well. 

One of the many unique features of this home is the fantastic bonus room off of the kitchen. Previously the garage, this spacious room was remodeled to include vaulted ceilings, tremendous amount of light, loft area and . . . views! Options abound for this room: playroom, family room, guest room, work-from-home office, study-from-home school room . . . . you decide. 

Two bedrooms grace the main level of this home, the primary one facing west and north with its own set of sliding doors to the expansive deck. Generously sized, the closets in this room are cedar-lined. The second bedroom faces east and north at the front of the house. A full bath is shared by these two rooms, the cast iron tub just recently re-glazed. The tile work has also just been professionally steam-cleaned here. 

Heading to the lower level, you will be amazed at the multitude of spaces. Full height with private access and its own full size second kitchen, this floor offers so many options: multi-generational family quarters, a 2-3 bedroom rental, additional living spaces in general. 

Let’s start with the living room to your right as you first arrive downstairs. This room looks to the west and has its own brick, wood-burning fireplace! The large open space at the base of the stairs here brings a complete, full size kitchen: stainless appliances, granite countertops,beautiful cabinets and a full size washer and dryer. Also includes plenty of space for a dining area.

The first of three additional rooms here is non-conforming and currently staged as a home office. The next bedroom is conforming (armoire conveys with home if so desired by the new owner) and faces west to the back yard and lower level patio. The final lower level room is also a conforming bedroom and faces the back yard as well. A private entrance to this level off the lower level patio (full footprint of deck above!) makes this a possible rental, ready to go.

The expansive back yard is fully fenced and includes a variety of trees and plantings. The large deck and the patio both offer fantastic opportunity for simply lounging or entertaining. Included in the back yard is a separate parking pad with a gate to the back alley. If gardening is your thing, this yard is a blank slate for creating planting beds, raised beds, you name it!


West Seattle Fairmount’s neighborhood allows proximity to beautiful parks, including Fairmount Park (with a great playground!) and Lincoln Park – a bike ride away and from which you can catch a ferry to Vashon Island! 

An array of great dining spots are close: Bakery Nouveau, Beveridge Place Pub, Raccolto, Kizuki Ramen and so many more! Safeway, Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods are all just minutes away to the north for your grocery needs. Walk just blocks to the High Point branch of Seattle Public Library.
