Southwest of Seattle, along the West Seattle peninsula, sits the little town of Burien. Having long been something of a hidden gem, away from the hustle of the city, Burien has become more popular, in recent years. As rising prices and have driven some residents further out, Burien, with it’s little lake, fantastic Sound and mountain views, and ample watefront, has turned into a pretty cool little place. It’s within striking distance of downtown Seattle, for commuters, as well as the Sea-Tac Airport, but feels like a more of a cozy little town. Burien’s median home value is about $400k.
