The deck offers places for lounging and enjoying the views.
Beach homes run the gamut from super funky to ostentatiously luxurious: 5427 Beach Drive S.W. is right in the middle of that spectrum.
Seemingly modest from the outside, this home is modern and spacious inside, and with the Puget Sound as a backyard, offers a unique Seattle living experience.
Built in 1928, the 2,400-square-foot home has been updated extensively over the years of its life. The vaulted ceilings and open floorplan frame huge windows that look out on the beach. There’s also a partially finished basement that could function as a guest suite or Airbnb.
Listing agent Nick Pallis told the Seattle P-I that the house is more than just a refuge for the humans who live in it.
“Beach living means the opportunity to view a variety of sea life. In fact, the current homeowner speaks often of one eagle in particular that seems to like hanging out in front of the property. And interestingly enough, at one of our first buyer showings the showing broker was greeted by a giant sea lion lounging about in front of the home’s bulkhead,” Pallis said.
If buyers want to get closer to those sea lions, they could make use of the off-shore mooring buoy that comes with the property.
All this can be yours for $1.725 million. Keep scrolling to take a tour.
From the street, the home does not look as large as it actually is: 2,4oo square feet, three beds and two baths.
The house joins a lucky community of homes on West Seattle’s Beach Drive, facing the water.
The living room features walls of glass that allow the beach and water to become part of the interior.
There’s an open, modern floor plan.
Trees line the path to the home’s entrance.
