West Seattle Real Estate
West Seattle is a vibrant and varied community on the Southwest side of Seattle. It is tied closely to Puget Sound on the West, Elliott Bay on the Northeast and the Duwamish River on the East. It is inextricably woven into the marine life of the area and is a distinct community, set aside from the rest of Seattle. Nearly one fifth of the population of the city lives in West Seattle along with past and present Seattle Mayors, County Executives and legendary rock stars. (Pearl Jam, if anyone asks)
The Junction, at SW Alaska Street and California Ave SW, is the downtown business district of West Seattle. It is a wonderful mix of old and new with several businesses that have stood the test of time. There are delis, bakeries, restaurants, banks, barbershops, bookstores, jewelers and so much more. California Avenue also hosts the Admiral Junction to the north and the Morgan Junction to the south. They provide a broad range of shopping and eating opportunities.
Forested City Parks abound from Alki Beach and Schmitz Parks in the North to Westcrest, Lincoln and Fauntleroy Park in the South with Camp Long in the middle. There are also many various other parks besides with an abundance of community ballfields for Baseball, Football, Soccer and Ultimate Frisbee.
