As the self-titled “resident green agent” in High Point, I wanted to give a quick update – even though it’s been less than 3 weeks since my last. Because the number of homes for sale here is just stupid. In an “I’m amazed” sort of way.
I am not going to go in to a lot of detail, except to say more than half of the homes listed for sale are in the subassociation of Redwood High Point. But there also is a new carriage home that is on the market, and these are my favorite home in the community. It is the first one listed (see link) since it is the lowest price, and as a 4 Star Built Green Certified home, it’s cute and comes with its own garage (as most homes do).
Some homes currently being marketed for sale require lender approval (short sale). Ask for details.
What makes High Point so great?
Well, first of all, it is in West Seattle. I have lived in West Seattle since 1997. And I won’t leave. It has everything I need so I don’t actually have to leave at all, which is nice. And for when I do want to pop downtown for a night out, pick up someone at the airport, or go mall-hopping at Southcenter, all of that is within 15 minutes (using the West Seattleites travel tips, which I am happy to share).
It was wonderful to have the opportunity to buy a brand new home in a Built Green Certified Community right in my own neighborhood. I lived within a mile of this location for ten years, and watched the development of this community over that time with great interest. When I took a property tour in April 2007 I wasn’t looking for a new home and had no intention of moving – but what I found in High Point made me put my house on the market almost immediately, and the sale of our home on 18th Ave SW and the purchase of our townhome on SW Raymond all managed to squeek through right at the beginning of the real estate market fallout. We feel lucky that we managed to get moved and settled without any hassle.
The utilities are underground so the views are not impeded by anything…but trees. And I like trees. The old trees in High Point were saved during redevelopment and they *make* this neighborhood. There are great views of downtown, sunrise, sunset, trails in the woods, access to Camp Long and the Longfellow Creek Legacy Trail all within walking distance.

If you are considering a move to West Seattle…
Call me. Or email me. Or send me a message on Facebook or Twitter. I know the Westside inside and out and can answer any questions you may have about what it is like living here. Just know you will get biased answers – because it is clear that I love it here and don’t see why anyone would want to move!
The listing links are only good for 30 days from the date of this post.
