North Seattle Neighborhoods: Ballard

Ballard IntersectionBallard was settled by Danish and Finish immigrants in the mid 1800s and continues to maintain its' Scandinavian, small town qualities.Bay Theater

It has been one of Seattle's favorite neighborhoods for years and within the last ten years, has become a trendy, happening area for locals.  It is a hot spot for restaurants, entertainment, boutiques, galleries and a monthly art walk.

Ballard is home to my favorite theater, the renovated Majestic Bay Theater; also to the Ballard Locks and Golden Gardens Park and Beach.

There are several smaller neighborhoods:  Sunset Hill and Loyal Heights have Puget Sound view homes.  Whittier and Salmon Bay are more affordable.  In the right market condition, new listings sell quickly here.  In the 20's, 30's and 40's, Ballard's homes were built to last.  Currently, prices range from $200,000 to $2,000,000.Shilshole
