| Via Windermere

King County Metro route 107 runs exclusively in south Seattle and King County. Between its bookends—Beacon Hill in Seattle and downtown Renton—it runs through the southend, hitting Rainier Beach, Georgetown, and Bryn Mawr-Skyway along the route.

Unlike the last couple of routes we’ve featured, the 512 and the 311, this is an all-day, all-week route, running from before 5 a.m. til after midnight, depending on the stop, on weekdays and almost as long on weekends.

Both the timing and the tracks it covers makes it versatile: It can bring someone who lives in South Seattle to work at Boeing. It can bring someone in Renton to the Link Light Rail to downtown Seattle, or school in Capitol Hill or the U District. Or it can just be a great way to get around the different parts of the southend.

We’ve found six notable homes along the route, from a Renton basement rambler to a North Beacon Hill Tudor.

1304 S Stevens St
Seattle, WA 98144

This 1929-built Tudor-style home in North Beacon Hill has four bedrooms, two and three quarter bathrooms, view decks (including one off the master), and a gorgeous fireplace. A recent remodel has given it a built-in home theater. It’s the most expensive home on this list at $880,000.

2. 5325 17th Avenue South

Copy Link
5325 17th Ave S
Seattle, WA 98108

In Beacon Hill, this 1932 craftsman has an elaborate patio and edible garden, plus two bedrooms and one and three quarter bathrooms. Original built-ins provide plenty of storage, and a renovated, finished attic creates fun spaces with dramatically vaulted ceilings. It’s listed for $485,000.

5558 16th Ave S
Seattle, WA 98108

Also in Beacon Hill, this 1919 rambler is full of little details: cased openings with built-in shelving, skylights, wainscoting. A custom garden shed in the back could become something cooler, or just stay a really cute garden shed. The three-bedroom, one-bathroom house is listed for $475,000.

4. 5114 South Creston Street

Copy Link
5114 S Creston St
Seattle, WA 98178

This four-bedroom in Rainier Beach looks a little newer than 1932 on the outside, but on the inside it keeps a ton of historic details: dark wood trim, archways, French doors, hardwoods, a stone fireplace. It also keeps some wallpaper from somewhere in between then and now in a few spots. It’s listed for $399,995.

5. 8040 South 117th Street

Copy Link
8040 S 117th St
Seattle, WA 98178

This three-bedroom, 1960 modern in Bryn Mawr-Skyway sits on more than 12,000 square feet of landscaped land—which also includes a small outbuilding for an art studio, office, or whatever else small outbuildings are useful for. Exposed beams, skylights, and plank walls give the main house a cozy, cabin feel. It’s listed for $575,000—we’re guessing because of all that land.

6. 320 Maple Avenue Northwest, Renton

Copy Link
320 Maple Ave NW
Renton, WA 98057

Toward the end of the 107 route, this five-bedroom basement rambler just outside downtown Renton is embedded in a hillside for sweeping views. It features a large kitchen, a home theater, and a huge amount of land—more than 15,000 square feet. It’s listed for $579,000.
