New House?

As you can tell from the date of my last posting I've been negligent in taking care of my blog responsibilities! One of the reasons is because we have been busy house hunting! Yes we have finally made the decision to make the big move out of the burbs to the big city. We have been literally been looking at houses all over the city of Seattle from Green Lake to Magnolia, Queen Anne, Revenna, Seward Park and Montlake.

Top of our list however was West Seattle and that's where I think we will land. It's best for both our work situations and has a great vibe and full of activities. I don't want to get too optimistic but we made an offer on a house. The reason I don't want to get too excited is because we are a backup offer to a previous offer. Our agent thinks we have a good chance but we don't want to get into a bidding war. We should know today if we prevailed!

The house is much different than our current house. Our current house is pretty modern, built in the 1980's but totally remodeled. The new house is a 100 year old craftsman in the Alki Beach neighborhood of West Seattle. It's a great location! The house is less than a block from Alki beach, one of our favorite Mexican restaurants Cactus, is located two blocks away and there are a lot of other services nearby including Starbucks just down from Cactus. The Alki Trail that runs along Puget Sound is at the end of our block for great running and biking opportunities!

We went for a run yesterday in the neighborhood which was great! Lots of people out and about. Afterwards we went to the West Seattle Farmers Market. Here are a few pictures from the neighborhood.

















The house has been mostly remodeled and offers a rare three car garage in the city! The upstairs had been a separate rental that we would convert to a master suite.
Here are a few pictures of the place.


















Keeping our fingers crossed! If not this one we know that something even better will come along. Although we really want this one!
I'll keep you posted - should know by the end of the day!
