King County Metro route 5 takes a straightforward route through Northwest Seattle, taking Aurora from Downtown to Fremont, then runs in a straight shot through Phinney Ridge and Greenwood to Shoreline Community College.
We’ve found six notable homes along the route; vote for your favorite below.
↑ This two-bedroom townhouse in Lower Queen Anne just off Aurora has walls full of windows to take in plenty of light and match the boxy, minimalist building shape. A garage door opens to a bonus room on the bottom floor for some fun, live-work potential—or just a great den. It comes with two years of free parking, too. It’s listed for $675,000.
↑ Farther north up Aurora on the cusp of Queen Anne and Westlake—next to opulent dining destination Canlis—this four-bedroom townhouse has vaulted ceilings and lake views. The backyard is bigger than most townhouse yards, and probably gets better light, too, thanks to its position overlooking a hill. It’s listed for $849,000.
↑ In Fremont, this vintage, one-bedroom condo is listed for $399,950. Built in 1909, has hardwood floors, cute period details like a wide cased opening, and a breakfast bar.
↑ This 1926 Spanish Revival-style home in Phinney Ridge is full of details like tulip glass, a brick fireplace, and French doors. It could use some restoration work, but that seems built into the listing price; the four-bedroom home with a yard and a basement will run you $575,000.
↑ On the northeast edge of Greenwood, this 900-square-foot, two-bedroom house with an adjoining office has a fully-fenced yard with an expansive patio, original hardwoods, and an oversized garage. It’s listed for $475,000.
↑ Up in Broadview by Shoreline Community College, near the end of the route, this two-bedroom bungalow is listed for $425,000. The 870-square-foot home sits on more than 5,000 square feet, so it’s a good fit for someone who wants a tiny house but a good amount of yard.
