West Seattle Blog reports that the City of Seattle has scheduled a hearing about building three homes on sprawling lawn of The Painted Lady (the Satterlee house). Read more about it on WSB by clicking here.
Redfin recently did a comparison of what a couple of condos on Beach Drive sold for…if you would like to read more, click here.
I’m not sure what side of the street the units are on (some address numbers are odd and others are even).
This is a new feature for Beach Drive Blog. BDB will be reporting quarterly closings for homes in the neighborhood. Again, I’m not a real estate agent… I just think this may be interesting information for our readers. I would LOVE it if one of our Beach Drive agents would volunteer to take this on (hint hint).
Here is our first quarterly report of closed transactions in our neighborhood:
3636 Beach Dr SW sold for $800,000 and closed on February 12, 2007.
3828 Beach Dr SW #202 sold for $454,000 and closed on March 20, 2007.
3717 Beach Drive SW #316 sold for $450,000 and closed on March 15, 2007.
3717 Beach Dr SW # 317 sold for $394,500 and closed on February 28, 2007.

Okay…I am NOT a real estate agent, but I do live in the neighborhood and I’m in the real estate business (mortgage). So I’m naturally nosey about the real estate in our area. I’ve been noticing one of the homes getting spruced up lately and wondered if it was going on the market…sure enough! It’s a cutey…listed for $495,000 (MLS#27034408).
I just happened to notice an a-board sign on the street this afternoon (while I was spring cleaning my garden). Minutes after it was set out, the home was swarming with interested parties. I even saw a couple run to see it! The sign post is not in yet…it was amazing to watch the potential buyers checking out this home.
Last month there was an interesting article in the Seattle PI regarding historic homes in Seattle. It touches on the Hainsworth House and Seaview Hall both currently for sale in West Seattle. It also discusses things to consider if you’re thinking about applying for landmark status for your home. To read more…click here.
