When is a failure not a failure?

A view to die for!

We thought this home was sold, but it is back on the market due to failed buyer financing. Their loss, your gain. Seattle real estate doesn't get much better than this!

This is a rare property -- a condo alternative -- a single family home that has been converted to two separate living spaces. You can live on one floor and rent out the other to help make the mortgage payments.

2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on the main level; 2 bedrooms and one bath on the lower level. Outstanding views of Puget Sound from both units! Situated on Fauntleroy way between the ferry dock and Lincoln Park. The address is 8801 Fauntleroy Way SW. List price is $688,000. MLS #177473.

I will be holding this home open today (Sunday) from 1-4PM. Stop by to say hello, take in the view, MAKE AN OFFER, and pick up a coupon for a free ice cream cone from West Seattle's own Husky Deli

Here's where to look for additional Active Seattle listings holding Open House events this weekend.
