Celebrating The Homes Along Martin Luther King Jr. Way

Today we mark the birthday of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to honor the man at the forefront of the civil rights movement. It's one of many honors he received posthumously, another of which is having over 700 streets named after him around the United States.

Here in Seattle, Martin Luther King, Jr. Way is an eight-mile stretch between Seattle and Renton. As we turn our attention to MLK, let's also take some time today and turn our attention towards the real estate currently on the market along the street that bears his name.


Starting in Madison Valley, we find this 2003-built 3-BR at 1809 Martin Luther King Jr Way. This Craftsman is perched high above the street and highlights include bamboo floors, gourmet kitchen and a family room which opens to a private deck. The master suite comes with a private deck, soaking tub, shower, and walk-in closet.


First-time buyer? Take a chance on this 1905-built 2-BR available for $275K in Madrona. The cute, 915 sq. ft. home features a large kitchen area, vaulted ceilings & a backyard that you could certainly get creative with.


One of the newer projects in the area is Vivo at Columbia City, a new townhouse project by BDR Homes currently under construction. The project is scheduled for completion this year but pre-sale on available townhouses start at $229K. Homes feature granite throughout, extensive use of hardwood laminate floors, stainless steel appliances, outdoor living areas and a built-in tech center. The project has a total of eight units, four of which are currently available.
