The tipster who wrote in with this listing began his note with: "It's a bit less expensive than the usual houses of the day." While we do tend to dwell on the absurd and the absurdly expensive, this definitely looks like a winner. The views over Puget Sound from the bluff-top site are nothing short of spectacular, and while the interior has its quirks -- like blue wall-to-wall carpeting and a sunken dining nook -- that broad porch with simple rope railing could sell this place all on its own. There's no shortage of space either, with four bedrooms, four baths, and a two-car garage. Some gentle haggling might pay off: owing to the lack of furnishings, the owners seem to have already moved on.
