It is still possible to find one-acre lots in Seattle without having to buy an apartment complex? Yes, if you count this 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath, 2,780 square-foot country style estate for $600,000 in West Seattle. It was built in 1978, but the hardwood floors, exposed beam ceilings and big brick fireplace looks as traditional as any (large) farm house. The grounds are landscaped, and there's enough room for a major garden. There's even enough room for a mother-in-law apartment. The last time it sold was 18 years ago for $52,000. That was obviously a deal.
