"Nice wide street with gorgeous homes"

Several streets in this area of Magnolia are tiny one-lane neighborhoods, made worse with on-street parking. Viewmont Way W. is a nice wide 2-lane road that you have no problem driving down even with cars parked on both sides of the street. Because it's Magnolia, traffic is always minimal, and many of the residents of the area use the sidewalks to take leisurely strolls.
The homes along Viewmont Way W. are absolutely beautiful, each with its own charm. Several of the residents take great pride in their yards, mowing the front lawns to almost putting green status. The flowers and bushes are trimmed and decorative. Like the street name, many of these homes, especially on the west side of the street, have spectacular views of Puget Sound.
While there are many homes along this street, it doesn't seem overly crowded, and the neighbors are very friendly.
Nice, big trees line the street providing shade on those hot summer days. The north end of the road Ts at Discovery Park, and the south end winds around to McGraw and the shopping area of Magnolia. The street is relatively flat, though you need to climb a pretty steep hill to get to it.

"Beautiful neighborhood with pricey 1900s built homes with a view"

There is a house along Viewmonth Way West that I have eyeballed for years and absolutely love it. It is actually located at 2239 W. Viewmont Way W and recently went on the market for over three million dollars. Not sure if it has sold yet, but this is fairly typical of this street. Homes are pricey and the views are spectacular. This home in particular, like so many others along the street has unobstructed views of the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains. Most of the homes were built in the early to mid 1900s and have been completely restored and renovated. Sidewalks are kept clean and homes are situated spaciously from the next. Seattle School District 1 operates throughout the neighborhood and the Frantz H Coe Elementary School is found nearby, as well as Lawton Elementary and Catharine Blaine K-8. Heading east on Viewmont Way W is the Church of the Ascension.
