King County Metro’s route 48 resumes service along 23rd Avenue today—as good a time as any to see what’s for sale around the route. About a year ago, the route split into the 48 and the 45, so we won’t be traveling up to Loyal Heights. But there’s plenty to see between the edge of Beacon Hill and the U District.
↑ Located near the start of the 48’s run in North Beacon Hill, this two bedroom 2007 townhouse (with a bonus room) is near the Mount Baker light rail station, too. It has hardwood floors, quartz countertops, a jacuzzi tub, and a fireplace, and will run you $533,800.
↑ The 48 then winds into the Central District, where this former little restaurant—specifically, the former CC’s Gourmet Burgers—is for sale as a residential building after possibly losing that commercial status. It’s not a house quite yet, but it’s listed at $599,000 for someone who eventually wants to live in it.
↑ Approaching the arboretum-adjacent neighborhood that realtors have conveniently started lumping in with North Capitol Hill, this 1904 four bedroom with original millwork and all those cute craftsman built-ins is listed at $789,950. It even has a clawfoot tub.
↑ Sharing a bus stop with the previous home is this incredibly tall, rebuilt, 1910 home. While it doesn’t seem to have a much different footprint than other homes around it, it reaches deep down into the hillside and comes out at 4,186 square feet. Maybe you can split it with somebody—it’s listed at $1,275,000.
↑ Before the 48 crosses the Montlake Bridge toward its final stop by the UW campus, it passes through Montlake, and just a block away from this dip-dyed 1929 home with a steep roof pitch. This four bedroom home with a wood burning fireplace is listed at $950,000.
