King County Metro route 36 runs from Downtown to the southend, connecting multiple light rail stops, from the International District to Beacon Hill to Othello.

But unlike the Link light rail line, which runs largely along Martin Luther King, Jr. Way, the 36 takes Beacon north through Beacon Hill, hitting Jefferson Park (and a ton of other parks), Pacific Medical Center, the Beacon Food Forest, the VA hospital, the International School, and other parts of the neighborhood that aren’t served by the train.

It also connects those areas to both Rainier Beach to the south and the International District and Downtown to the north. And because it hits multiple train stops along the way, it’s a vital connector to not only the airport, but neighborhoods served by rail: Capitol Hill, the U District, Columbia City.

We’ve found six notable homes along the route, from a brand-new modern home to a 75-year-old Tudor revival.
