Encompassing desirable neighborhoods only a five-minute commute on the bridge including Alki, Admiral, North Admiral, Belvedere, Fauntleroy and Gatewood, West Seattle has increased in popularity as a preferred target for homebuyers relocating from California’s Bay Area and the creative class.

Residents frequent the Water Taxi, whether they’re relaxing on their commute to the city or watching the sun slip beneath the city and the Puget Sound.
