Imagine you have around $1.5M to spend on a place and you've narrowed it down to two homes in West Seattle. How do you make up your mind? The answer is simple: you shove them into a metaphorical cage and let them battle it out until one emerges victorious. It's time for Real Estate Deathmatch.
↑ The 4-BR at 5130 SW Waite St. is a blend of Mission Revival and Arts & Crafts architecture that features panoramic vistas of Puget Sound and the Olympics. Deep arched portico and a gracious formal entry maintain the style while box beams, craftsman style fireplaces and period light fixtures accent each room. The kitchen and bathrooms have all been completely renovated.
↑ Slightly cheaper and somewhat smaller, the 3-BR at 3307 SW Andover St. is a custom-built Tuscan-style home. Beautiful stonework throughout, not to mention hand-rubbed teak floors, various balconies, terraces and a lush private garden. It's easy to get lost in the atmosphere here, inside and outside the home.
