Where's Pigeon Point?

The other day I posted a photo of the view from a new home in the Pigeon Point neighborhood of West Seattle. As I noted in that post, Pigeon Point is one of the least well-known areas in West Seattle, so I thought I'd give you a little more information about it. 

The Pigeon Point neighborhood is located on a high bluff directly south of the West Seattle Bridge at the south end of Elliott Bay. Boundaries include Spokane Street SW on the north, Delridge Avenue SW on the west, West Marginal Way and the Duwamish Waterway on the east, and Puget Park/Oregon Avenue on the south.

The main access to the neighborhood is east on SW Andover Street, off Delridge Way soon after exiting the West Seattle Bridge. Andover then runs into/dead ends at 21st Ave SW. Turning right/south onto 21st will take you into the heart of the neighborhood. The streets tend to be narrow and homes, both old and new, seem to fill every square inch of land. Cars do not race through Pigeon Point; it has a pedestrian-friendly feel to it.

Although few people are familiar with the area, those who live there, love it and are not anxious for the secret to get out.

Here is a sneak peek at the kitchen in this as-yet-unlisted new home. Note that bright spot in the background is the sun!

If you'd like to know more about this house, give me a call and I will let you know as soon as it hits the market. 206-708-9800
