    Alki & West Seattle

    The Alki neighborhood is still remembered as Seattle's historic starting point. Over time Alki became a quaint seaside resort town lined with beach cottages. Today Alki conjures up visions of a warm beach community, but the cottages are all but gone. Apartments, condo buildings and million dollar homes now line the beach area. Up high on the hill, above Alki and over looking Elliott Bay is the West Seattle neighborhood of Admiral. There you will find beautiful homes many built in the 1920's and 1930's offering magnificent views. Then south and just around the corner from Alki is the Beach Drive area again with waterfront homes on the west side of Beach Drive and many view homes on the east side of the street. Moving south from there you come to the Fauntleroy area of West Seattle where the ferry takes you to Vashon Island and Southworth. The hillside in the Fauntleroy area have homes built form the 1920's on and although many of these homes are more modestly priced many offer again wonderful views of Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains.
