The Overlook at Westridge
Sean Moran • Resident • 2012 - 2015 Recommended
Years back ('bout 3), I looked at reviews of various offerings in the West Seattle area. I immediately recognized the bad apples (as in ex-tenants) by the extremes of their expectations and depths of their disappointments. Few glowing endorsements were to be found, but reasoned and balanced reviews were available. I hope to be among them in this review. Cost: Well this isn't offered in the line-up of questions, but you gotta know---Not Cheap! However, every dollar goes towards maintaining value. Layout: Another question not formally sought. Storage is generous. Room sizes are ample. Kitchen may seem small, but it fills the bill. Eating/Living room ginormous. I worked in Real Estate and these are Condo quality (meaning built for living in, not simply occupying). Noise: We live on the middle floor. A newborn child below, teenagers above. The only whisper of their activity arrives through the open windows in the summer, and generally only during active hours. Next door can be heard through the bathroom wall --- curious, but we don't live in the bathroom. Grounds: Maintained weekly by a professional ground crew, staff does chores during the week. Great workers that hustle with a smile and are not simply drifting through, marking time until a better job comes their way. Safety: Very comfortable considering the proximity of Delridge, a line I once refused to live near or east of. Neighborhood: Well, the proximity of Delridge could set your teeth on edge, or for that matter White Center (I lived in Burien in the 70s so that paints a certain picture). With modern police stations nearby, a lot has changed. Maintenance: All you have to do is ask. I haven't had to do much of that, and only for small stuff. Staff: Good continuity what with changes over the past few years. Always considerate and they rise to seek your needs.
