| Via Windermere

King County Metro Route 2 travels out of downtown on two sides—to the east and the north—one of the few routes that still does this.

One end of the route exits downtown by the Central Library, cruising uphill through First Hill and skirting the edge of Capitol Hill before heading up Union through the Central Area and Madrona. Its terminus here is at Lake Washington, specifically Madrona Park Beach, letting folks off to take a walk along the shore or a dip in the water.

On the other side, it also heads uphill to Queen Anne, first running through Belltown and lower Queen Anne (or Uptown, if you prefer), past Seattle Center, then climbing Queen Anne Avenue. It sets its course off the main drag once it gets to the top of the hill, spending the rest of its time on Sixth Avenue West, covering many a posh craftsman home with great views. (Also, Targy’s Tavern.)

We’ve found six notable homes for sale along the route.

1130 Grand Ave
Seattle, WA 98122

It’s as if this massive 1925 Tudor revival in Madrona was built to match the street name, because it’s certainly grand, with multiple formal gathering spaces and layers of decks with water views. An expansive sunroom features a semi-indoor hot tub. It’s listed for $2.4 million.

Seattle, WA 98122

Also in Madrona, this three-bedroom corner craftsman from 1926 is listed for $899,950. Vintage details include leaded glass windows and archways between common areas. A finished attic office with dramatic vaulted ceilings is a nice extra touch.

923 15th Ave
Seattle, WA 98122

In the Central Area around Squire Park, this bright, two-bedroom condo is listed for $475,000, plus $400 a month in HOA dues. While the exterior isn’t recognizably from 1904, the details show on the interior, with a brick fireplace and built-in shelves. The balcony adds outdoor space.

124 Warren Ave N

5. 105 West Highland Drive Unit 200

Copy Link
105 W Highland Dr
Seattle, WA 98119

This ultra-luxurious 1990 condo on the slope of Queen Anne Hill has been on the market for quite a while now. Its French doors lead to a patio spanning two floors—a lead-in to the living area’s cathedral ceilings. The modern loft has a full 3,255 square feet of living space, including two large bedroom suites and a gym space. This one’s asking $2.8 million—down from $2.95 million when it was first listed—an amount that’s makes $915 per month in HOA dues look not too bad.

6. 1407 6th Avenue West

Copy Link
1407 6th Ave W
Seattle, WA 98119

In upper Queen Anne, this five-bedroom, 1911 craftsman is incredibly posh, with boxbeam ceilings, grand fireplaces, and intricate millwork. On the lower floor, a separate apartment is advertised as “au pair quarters”—which tracks with the $2.5 million price tag, down $185,000 from when it was first listed.
