Midcentury home on the West Seattle waterfront
At 5469 Beach Dr. SW, you can step onto the beach and be kayaking or SUPing in record time! The four-bedroom, four-bathroom home in Seaview is situated on a no-bank waterfront, providing unparalleled access and incomparable views. Across its nearly 3,400-square-foot layout, the midcentury home offers a waterside patio, two-car garage and an upscale chef’s kitchen.
Built in 1950, this home was designed to maximize its proximity to Puget Sound. Large windows bring the outdoors in, making the waters’ blue tones and neighboring Olympic Mountains visible from the kitchen, living and dining rooms. Off the main floor, a spacious covered patio comes equipped with a built-in grill and pizza oven, while a power awning automatically descends to weatherize the space amid colder, windier stints. An ample entertaining space, the patio extends into the backyard and is ideal for an outdoor dining setup. A second-floor, west-facing balcony provides sunny space for flower or container gardening with similar views.
Elsewhere, the kitchen was expertly designed with all teak cabinetry, high-end appliances, a commercial-grade vent hood and butler’s pantry. Parking is a snap with an attached two-car garage and room for additional vehicles in the driveway. Heated floors, a new boiler, metal roof, steam shower and back up generator create a more efficient, comfortable home.
