Can You Own The Beach

This West Seattle home, nicknamed the "Beach Drive Oasis," offered artistic inspiration to Chris Ballew — lead singer of The Presidents of the United States of America — and his wife, artist Kate Endle for 13 years. You could be the next to call the Oasis home, for $925,000.

The home is just one block off of Beach Drive, and steps to the shore.

A midcentury with decidedly modern-day additions, 5414 S.W. Beach Drive Terrace offers 2,016 square feet of living space. Along with the four bedrooms and two bathrooms are features special to the artists who have lived here for over a decade: "First off, they converted the two-car attached garage into Kate’s art studio ... out back, the converted shed is ... [a] fully sound-proofed studio," the official listing says.

In the art studio, Endle illustrated 13 children's books; in the music studio, Ballew's other music project, Caspar Babypants, recorded all of its albums. 

The home sits on a large, lushly landscaped lot, a half block off of Beach Drive and just a 5-minute drive to Alki Beach. 

While the celebrity couple is not, in fact, leaving for the country to eat a lot of peaches — they've built a new home on Vashon Island  — leaving the home that so nurtured their family and artistic careers must be bittersweet.

Take a tour of Beach Drive Oasis by scrolling down. And better hurry: the home went pending in just three days on the market.
