Homes for Sale in West Seattle
West Seattle is one of the biggest neighborhoods in Seattle, and is a peninsula isolated by water on all three sides. Known for it’s independence, the town built it’s own streetcar system in the early 1900’s, and a direct ferry service to downtown Seattle until 1920, and construction of the bridge shortly there after. After many failed attempts for annexation to Seattle, West Seattle officially became part of Seattle in 1907. It’s a community with deep roots from Native American presence of the Duwamish Indians and Chief Seattle. Some of the most picturesque views of Seattle come from the West Seattle neighborhood looking back to the downtown Seattle skyline. Because of the many parks, greenbelts, Fauntleroy Ferry terminal, Alki beach and boardwalk, it’s no wonder West Seattle was originally a resort town.
