If hilltop living in West Seattle appeals to you, you have a lot of options. Some of them are going to lead you into King County Metro Route 21’s territory.

It takes the long way from Downtown through SoDo, then gets to work bringing people uphill on 35th Avenue Southwest, down to Westwood Village down Barton, and up to the edge of Arbor Heights. The express, which only runs for nine-to-five Downtown commutes, skips Sodo and goes even farther into Arbor Heights, but that’s a map for a different week.

Along its way in West Seattle, it passes through Roxhill and skirts the edges of Gatewood, High Point, and Youngstown. After it gets done moving through West Seattle, it turns into the 5, taking riders to Fremont, Greenwood, and Shoreline. Add going through SoDo into the mix and it’s a pretty long trip—but hey, it hits the stadiums on the way.

We’ve found six notable homes along the route.
