Situated just north of Phinney Ridge, Greenwood remains one of the iconic Seattle neighborhoods. The area immediately around North 85th Street and Greenwood Avenue North grew up around the streetcar that formerly ran up Greenwood Avenue. It still has the charm of the storefronts that went up in the early 1900s. Now converted into restaurants, bars and other businesses, the neighborhood is still a buzz with activity. Head over in the summer to see Seattle’s largest free car show, and while you’re there, stop by Gorditos for one of the best burritos in town.
With its proximity to nearly everything in north Seattle, and its quiet neighborhood vibe, Greenwood homes have seen strong appreciation in recent years. The median single family home price in Greenwood is currently $595,000.
