Phinney Ridge

Phinney Ridge is your quintessential North Seattle neighborhood. Like Fremont, housing is almost solely adorable bungalow homes, with tons of plant life pouring out of every available space. Phinney Ridge also hosts a small business strip along Phinney Avenue with a few shops and restaurants. However, this neighborhood location makes journeys to other parts of the city a snap whenever your taste buds require more options. Between the lake to the north, and the best Seattle has to offer to the south, Phinney Ridge might be the perfect neighborhood.

The Ridge that runs across the hilltop separating Ballard and Green Lake is enjoying a surge of new family friendly stops along the bustling Phinney / Greenwood Avenues. This neighborhood offers the ultimate in playgrounds – the Woodland Park Zoo.

This area is the perfect mix of quiet neighborhood meets in-city energy. Phinney Avenue just begs to be strolled down and enjoyed. New eateries, coffee shops, and fun boutique shops are opening up all the time, and the Phinney Neighborhood Association keeps a steady string of community events on their calendar.

Phinney Ridge is home to a nice balance of urban singles and families with children, renters and owners. Most of the houses were built between 1900 and 1940, which makes for some charming neighborhood atmosphere. But with all of the new growth along Greenwood/Phinney Avenue, anyone can find a place that’s right for them.
