| Via Windermere

King County metro route 50 runs from west to East, or from where West Seattle hits the Puget Sound to where Lake Washington meets Seward Park.

But because of its Link Light Rail integration—it stops at both the Columbia City and the Othello Station—it’s also a sneaky route downtown from neighborhoods that can sometimes be hard to commute from.

It’s also the only route that serves Seward Park that far east, so to get downtown in that case, transferring is a must.

Between sea and lake, the 50 goes through several neighborhoods, including SODO, Beacon Hill, and Hillman City. After hitting Seward Park, it loops back around to the Othello station and New Holly. It’s a solid route for some nontraditional commutes and for exploring other neighborhoods alike.

We’ve found six notable homes along the route, starting with near-beachfront homes and ending with near-lakefront homes—with many other homes in between.
