Six homes for sale along Metro route 120

Soon to be a Rapidride route, the bus winds past homes in West Seattle, Burien, and White Center

View as Map

The King County Metro Route 120 brings riders as far as Burien to and from downtown—and in a few years it will become the RapidRide H bus rapid transit (BRT) line, making the commute into downtown even faster.

From downtown, it runs from Third Avenue and then down the viaduct to the West Seattle Bridge. Along its way to Burien, it hits a lot of West Seattle neighborhoods, like Youngstown, Delridge, and Highland Park, before skirting the city limits at Roxbury and then heading south to \White Center—skirting the edge of Westwood Village and passing popular spots like the Southgate Roller Rink and Salvadorean Bakery.

It eventually ends its run at the Burien Transit Center, providing connections to even more buses—including current BRT line the Rapidride F.

We found six notable homes along the route, from a 1980s condo to farmhouses to cute little bungalows (including one that squeezes three bedrooms into 850 square feet).

2608 SW Nevada St
Seattle, WA 98126

Not far off the West Seattle Bridge, this 1916 two-bedroom bungalow still has a cute farmhouse vibe inside, with a wood stove and exposed-grain cabinetry. The tree-lined backyard has plenty of patio space. It’s asking $539,950.

5001 25th Ave SW
Seattle, WA 98106

A block off the Delridge side of the West Seattle Golf Course, this 1940 farmhouse with a gambrel roof is listed for $515,000. Multi-paned windows add a cute, vintage touch, and the roof shape is apparent in the upper bedroom—one of two—giving it an interesting vault.

3. 2421 SW Trenton Street

2421 SW Trenton St
Seattle, WA 98106

Located near Westwood Village, this two-bedroom, two bathroom condo is extremely 1980s—with current decor to match—but has a lot of potential. A little sunroom-like area has a window bench for soaking up light. The fireplace is extra, but in a way you could add your own decor to. And in case the bedrooms are occupied, there’s a little office nook off the kitchen. Plus, being ’80s extra means a jetted tub. It’s asking $349,950, more than a $20,000 drop from when it was first listed, with $345 a month in HOA dues.

9628 25th Ave SW
Seattle, WA 98106

Just barely below the city limits, this five-bedroom Craftsman is on the market for the first time in a quarter century. While it’s had some updates, it still has a huge brick fireplace, archways between the formal spaces, and hardwood floors. A finished basement adds extra space, and a finished attic adds an adorable room in the peak of the roof. It’s asking $549,999.

949 SW 130th St
Burien, WA 98146

In Burien, this little 1930 bungalow manages to fit three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 850 square feet. The yard is much bigger, at least, with nearly 10,000 square feet of space. It’s on the market for $395,000, a $5,000 drop from when it was first listed.

1142 SW 142nd St
Burien, WA 98166

This colorful farmhouse from 1949 has four bedrooms, and looks like it’s from an earlier era, with vaulted ceilings and adorable roof peaks. A finished basement has the potential to become a mother-in-law apartment—and there’s plenty of room to stretch out in the main space, with a living room downstairs and a den upstairs. The asking price is $515,000.
