Is This $769K West Seattle House an Overlooked Bargain?

Are folks just missing this house because it's on the east side of West Seattle? Are they that easily confused? Something must explain why this 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, 2 story is still on the market after over a year. They're asking $769,000, which is above the median, but it 2,380 square feet on a 5,557 square foot lot that's close to the Alki Trail, Seacrest Park, and the West Seattle Water Taxi. If you're up for a bit of a walk or a bike ride you're close to the rest of West Seattle and downtown Seattle without a need for a car. The house's style is contemporary with a few touches of semi-formality, like in the entry chandelier and the dining room. The rest is much more casual and should be easy to live with. So, why hasn't it sold? Maybe other houses in the area have better views. Maybe buyers want sunsets instead of sunrises. Take a tour and see if it is an overlooked bargain because it started out at $844,000, so there's a saving for having waited.
