West Seattle real estate: Price drops and other notes

Watching the ever-busier commercial/multifamily real-estate listings, a few things of recent note:

HOMESTEAD PRICE DROP: When the fire-ravaged Alki Homestead went back on the market last December, it was listed for $1,850,000. At some point, it went off the market, but is back again, categorized as a “new” listing, now at $1.4 million. Here’s the marketing flyer.

ADMIRAL PRICE DROP: Also listed for less, the former Brickyard BBQ site at 2310 California SW in The Admiral District. Seven months ago, we mentioned its initial $1,050,000 listing; now it’s down to $900,000.

3039 AVALON WAY: At least two projects remain in the works on the north side of Avalon (the 3268 microhousing and 3078 apartments), and now there’s a property for sale on the south side – 3039 Avalon Way SW, currently home to a duplex but, the listing says, “allows for 65` height and no parking requirements – ideal apartment location.” Listed at $1,650,000.

4140 CALIFORNIA SW: $1,575,000 is the asking price for this newly listed business-occupied building on the north edge of The Junction.

4857 FAUNTLEROY WAY: Just a block south of starting-soon The Whittaker, this apartment building known as The Dorchester is now up for sale, $1,695,000.

    “apartment building known as The Dorchester is now up for sale, $1,695,000.”
    so predictable; soon, will there be ANY affordable apts left for rent in WS?

    I saw a For Sale sign at the Victorian house on Beach Drive. Is it for the house or the vacant lot?

      The house is back on the market.
      I almost included it in this but decided to save it for next round.

    I’m not one to be snarky, but please click on the link in the 4140 California Ave. part of the post above and share your thoughts on the music!

Sorry, comment time is over.
