"Quiet, solitary, stunning views and trees galore!"

Perkins Lane W. is undoubtably the greenest street in all of Seattle. If your idea of perfect living is right on the beach with no traffic to bother you, this is the place for you. Outstanding views of Puget Sound, the Olympic Mountain range and the San Juan Islands, these homes are very secluded and ridiculously expensive. Some of the south end residents even get views of the marinas and Seattle skyline, but they pay heavily for it.
Perkins Lane W. dead ends at both ends of the street, with only two roads offering access, which may be a deterrent for some. But the densely treed street offers one of the quietest and most secluded in the city.

"Dead ends at both ends and views of the ocean"

Perkins Lane West is a short street that offers views of the ocean and cool crisp sea breezes. I love driving down Perkins Lane West but there is not much to offer but the view. Although priceless, the street has nothing in the way of dining or shopping. It is worth the drive just for the scenery though. The road eventually runs out and becomes a dead end near Magnolia Blvd W but does extend through some nice Magnolia residential areas around West Ruffner Street. If you are looking for a quiet Sunday drive at your own pace, this is the street to travel.

"Get out and take a drive"

Perkins Lane W is a short, beautiful drive along the coast. There isn't much traffic as it is eventually a dead-end street, but if you want to take a nice, pretty drive along the coast, this street is perfect for that. Head on over to Discovery Park when you're done and check out the scenery. The mature trees, beautiful ocean air, and sunny skies (hopefully) will give you a nice feeling of rest and relaxation and it won't have cost you much for a mini-vacation.
