Home at Ballard Locks

When I worked in downtown Seattle I used to take the Sounder Train into work. I loved the commute as I could sit back and listen to music or read (sometimes fall asleep with the rocking motion of the train). The rail line followed the water the entire trip so the view was always spectacular! As you get near Seattle, the train would pass near the Ballard Locks. This home is a comfortable mid-century home that is fairly nondescript on the exterior, but has an incredible view and is waterfront property with a large deck. For the price of a waterfront property in Seattle (and a perfect view of the famous locks), it's a really good deal!

Here's a good view towards the locks!

As you enter the home you can see some of my favorite features of the home, in particular the wood ceiling.

To the left of the entrance is the kitchen. It's fairly plain but fits in with the design/architecture of the home.

My favorite room! I love the wood ceiling with painted wood beams. I'm also a big fan of the painted brick fireplace. All in all, a very cozy living room that I wouldn't mind hanging out in. :-)

Simple dining room but unnecessary to get fancy as the view is what will grab everyone's attention.

Even the master bedroom has a perfect view!

This home has a large, impressive deck that's designed for entertaining. Again the view!

If you're interested in this home, you can contact the Windermere real estate office.

  1. Bethany! Thank you so much for your comment the other day regarding your butler's pantry that I featured on my blog (btw, if you have a direct link of the photo to your blog, I'd be happy to link it up). Your pantry is/was beautiful. I'm so sorry you had to leave it behind :(
