New Listing!- Mt. Baker View Estate

We are thrilled to blog about our newest Bennion & Deville listing, a fabulous 1911-built home thats situated on an expansive corner lot in Mount Baker – the kind of place, reported The Seattle Times, “where a few neighbors hire a band, strap on their tool belts and erect a stage in the park to provide free concerts for the neighborhood. Where people get together to fight City Hall or to dog a major petroleum company over a contaminated site. Where the community club hosts a neighborhood potluck for 300 and a biennial Home Tour requiring 150 volunteers — and also raises around $100,000 a year in college scholarships.”

Take a peek through 2810 Cascadia Avenue South….

Simply Seattle – Foggy Lake Union & Seattle’s Houseboat Community

We passed through Seattle’s Lake Union houseboat community on the way to work this morning just to snap a picture or two of the jaw-dropping view on lake.  With the slow change of seasons from summer to fall complete, and this cold front having moved in entirely, the bright winter sun we’ve been so lucky to hold on to almost all the way through November showed off Seattle in all it’s sparkly glory again this morning.

Nestled between Downtown, Elliot Bay and Lake Washington, Lake Union’s light almost seems to creep in westward through the Montlake Cut, beneath both bridges to begin tackling the thick fog bank that looms over the lake many mornings and brightening the rest of the city.  This morning’s fog was spectacular, in the early hours, it hid the lake entirely, breaking up as the sun rolled over Capitol Hill and started to illuminate Queen Anne’s Eastern face.  Later morning revealed a still, shimmering surface dotted with kayakers and reflecting the beginnings of a sleepy Seattle skyline. The effects were almost ethereal, and we captured the moment for some further bragging via the blogosphere.

The Emerald City Experience

On such a surprisingly beautiful and crisp fall day, we decided this video was the perfect thing to share to highlight our love affair with Seattle in the sun.  Despite the bad rep we get for skies riddled with clouds and mildly dreary days on end, no other place can really top our fair city when graced with even a little sunshine.

Videographer Don Jensen, crafted this spectacular time lapse video showcasing stunning images that span from sparkly lake views to the hustle and bustle of Pike Place Market. Seattle is known for it’s incredible landscapes,  but it isn’t so often recognized for it’s sunnier days and this video shows off Seattle in all of it’s spectacular glory!

“The city of Seattle is a very diverse city offering everything from industrial to artistic; crowded to vacant, the hustle and bustle of a large city mixed with quiet ocean side parks,” Jensen wrote on his Vimeo page presenting the project. “The ultimate goal was to present a video that would show what a person could see as they made their way through and around the city in the course of a day or two.”

Taken in almost 40 different locations around the city, and made up of roughly 21,000 images this video is truly beautiful!
