Most city-dwellers, whether they’ll admit it or not, like to get away from the hustle and bustle every so often. Unfortunately, escapes are often short-lived vacations that don’t offer a good opportunity to really recharge.
There’s an alternative, of course: you could drive home to a getaway every day without leaving Seattle. For a handful of people, that’s a real possibility with the opportunity at Fort Lawton.
Officer’s Row at Fort Lawton
Around 1900, the military erected 26 grand colonial-revival homes on Magnolia Bluff. The homes now sit in the heart of Discovery Park – Seattle’s 534-acre crown jewel – and the final six homes there are now for sale.
Above Puget Sound on Magnolia Bluff, the park is one of Seattle’s signature recreation and relaxation areas, offering everything from hiking trails and protected tidal beaches to meadow lands, sea cliffs and active sand dunes. It is the city’s largest public park and if you buy on Officer’s Row, it could be your backyard.
Your New Backyard
Hiring a landscaper can really jazz up your yard, but you’d be hard-pressed to replicate majesty of this magnitude within the city of Seattle. The secluded site where the Officer’s Row homes are located includes two miles of protected tidal beaches as well as open forest groves, thickets and streams.
The site is an open and tranquil space that feels incredibly far away from the stress and activity of the city. It’s a sanctuary for wildlife where people can learn about the natural world and maintained in its semi-natural condition, the park offers a biologically diverse escape for urban dwellers.
The site also offers considerable privacy from the outside world though it’s mere minutes from Downtown Seattle. Residents have access to all of the park’s amenities and can enjoy a carefully tended neighborhood that offers all of the natural beauty and charm of a historic town. As a homeowner at Fort Lawton, you have Seattle’s most beautiful and protected views and natural surroundings at your doorstep.
The homes feature generous front porches where residents can sit to soak in the view of Puget Sound, Bainbridge Island, and the Cascade and Olympic mountains. Choosing to own a home at Fort Lawton, you’ll appreciate that coming home means retreating to a serene getaway rife with natural beauty.
According to homeowner Mila Tatyanina, “It’s the best place in the world.”
The final six homes on Officer’s Row range from 4,000 to more than 6,000 square feet and are priced from the low $2 millions. Learn more at ownfortlawton.com.
