Six homes for sale along Metro route 8

From Queen Anne to Mt Baker

View as Map

King County Metro route 8, like the 31 last week, for the most part makes an east-west run. In this case, it starts in Lower Queen Anne (or Uptown, depending on your preference), loops around the Seattle Center, then heads east through the Denny Triangle, South Lake Union, and Capitol Hill.

Right after it skirts Madison Valley, it shifts gears and heads south down Martin Luther King, Jr. Way through the Central District, passing through Leschi and Judkins Park before its terminus at the Mt. Baker Transit Center, connecting it to multiple buses and Link Light Rail.

The issue with the 8: It’s known as the “late.” Metro is working on overcoming that reputation with various improvements that started rolling out in 2017, plus some additional service hours taking effect this September.

The route is great for just connecting neighborhoods—and hopefully after those improvements, people commuting to the Seattle Center area, South Lake Union, or Belltown. We’ve found six notable homes along the route.

Also on Capitol Hill, this Tudor-esque, 495-square-foot studio has an interesting layout: there’s no bedroom, but a large kitchen and dining area are separated from the living and sleeping area by a glass door. If you’re really wanting for a bedroom, a smallish bed could fit in the walk-in closet. Historic features include not only an elaborate fireplace, but mahogany woodwork. It’s on the market for $309,000, with $353 in HOA dues.
