All of West Seattle is a great place to raise a family. The district known as Fauntleroy is at the south end of West Seattle. Slightly further south would be the Arroyo's (which feature mostly Puget Sound view homes, waterfront and the price to go along with those views) and Arbor Heights (moderately priced homes). Both of these areas, as well as Fauntleroy were primarily developed in the "50's and 60"s. The homes again fit the era of Leave it to Beaver where large family's were the norm. In recent years their has been a real resurgent of households with young children after a period of Empty Nester's finally selling the family home. Fauntleroy encompasses a large area and the full spectrum of price ranges...average homes and homes to to 5 million (Endoline area), waterfront homes near the Fauntleroy/Vashon Ferry, beautiful view properties and homes near the average. Public schools generally around here are good and their are also private school options for those who choose. With the reemergence of young children has developed many extracurricular activities for those children.
