"Great views of your neighbors and Puget Sound"

The views in Seattle, whether city, mountain or water views, drive most home buyers in the Seattle area who can afford it. However, sometimes, areas with outstanding views that encapsulate one or more of these visual treats tend to get overpopulated to the point where you can hold your neighbor's hand from your respective kitchen windows.
Don't get me wrong, the homes along Montavista Place W. are beautiful, well manicured and a far cry from cookie-cutter neighborhood complexes, but sometimes there's more to calling a place home than a gorgeous house with a great view.
Fortunately, there's very little outside traffic on this street, because many residents need on-street parking to put their third and fourth cars, basically leaving a one-lane street to drive on.
Housing costs are high, in keeping with the other neighborhoods in the area, and the views are definitely worth the price. I just would rather have more space than a neighborhood that crams 19 homes in a 2-block space.
