Phinney Ridge

One of the defining characteristics for Phinney Ridge residents is their backyard: Woodland Park Zoo. You might hear locals complain about sleepless nights-waking up to monkey hoots, elephant blares or wolves howling at the full moon.  But Phinney Ridge draws animal lovers. One estimate says there are three dogs for every fire hydrant!  Phinney Ridge even has a do-it-yourself dog wash.

Homes are large bungalows and single-family styles. They’re often perched on steep streets and come in a range of colors and designs. Homeownership pride shows itself in the well maintained and tended landscapes, lush gardens, and home improvement projects. This is the kind of neighborhood where everyone knows each other’s names, and kids gather in the streets to play. Over the years, Phinney Ridge has attracted many first-time home buyers and new families.

Phinney’s ridge is on the east side of one of Seattle’s many slopes, giving this neighborhood beautiful views to the Olympic Mountains and over the Puget Sound. Where else can you watch the sun set to the call of the wild?
