King County Metro Route 11 runs in a slightly-crooked but relatively direct line: east from downtown through Capitol Hill, hitting the edge of the Central District before running through Madison Valley, past the Washington Park Arboretum, and ending up in Madison Park.

Along the way, it hits neighborhoods both dense and less so, despite running on major roads. In Capitol Hill, listings are heavy on condos—while by the time it gets to Madison Park, seven-figure single-family homes are dominant. Some of these neighborhoods have seen a lot more recent development, others not so much.

That means we get to explore a little bit of everything along this route, from newer, luxury condos to turn-of-the-century historical houses to a 1920s vision of city life. Some homes are closer to downtown; some are closer to the beach on Lake Washington.

We’ve found six notable homes along the route, from craftsman to modern.

1. 1414 12th Avenue Unit 408

Copy Link
1414 12th Ave
Seattle, WA 98122

Trace Lofts was a product of the beginning of the current Capitol Hill building boom, and this 610-square-foot one-bedroom in the building is listed for $538,000, not including $285 per month in HOAs. The unit has its own balcony, but if that’s not big enough, a shared roof deck provides more space. It also comes with garage parking and an ensuite washer and dryer. Other bonuses include restaurants Barrio and La Spiga below.

1631 16th Ave
Seattle, WA 98122

Those going for a more vintage aesthetic (and smaller price) can try this 643-square-foot one-bedroom in Garden Court, a 1929 brick building just a little farther east on Capitol Hill. The corner unit features four closets, a breakfast nook, and cute interior details like archways. Outside, a shared courtyard has lush landscaping. It’s asking $350,000—not including $459 in HOAs.

3. 2207 East Olive Street

2207 E Olive St
Seattle, WA 98122

On the cusp of Capitol Hill and the Central District, this two-bedroom-plus-den, 1910 home is listed for $699,000. It’s full of hidey-holes and vaulted ceilings like many turn-of-the-century homes, and features many original details like wooden trim—including a great banister. More modern updates include skylights. A grassy, fenced backyard is also a great draw.

4. 445 24th Avenue East

445 24th Ave E
Seattle, WA 98112

Just a hop over 23rd Avenue finds this four-bedroom 1918 home, also full of details that nod to its age: mahogany crown moulding, boxbeam ceilings, even some older fixtures. It looks like it might need some work inside—but that could uncover some more older gems (we spy some damask wallpaper in there!), depending on condition and preference. A network of porches provide plenty of useable outdoor space, even on a hillside. This one’s listed for $950,000.

5. 1550 Parkside Drive East

1550 Parkside Dr E
Seattle, WA 98112

Flash forward to 1952 to this midcentury Broadmoor home on a massive, 10,000-square-foot lot, complete with a pool. It has three bedrooms, two with en-suite bathrooms, plus an open floorplan in the common areas for a bright, airy space. Colorful upgrades add pops of color inside while keeping with the modern aesthetic.

The asking price is $2.65 million, down $125,000 since it was first listed. Broadmoor is a gated community, so that also comes with HOAs, but they’re not too high: $138 per month.

1800 43rd Ave E
Seattle, WA 98112

Ever sit on Madison Park Beach and wonder about the condos extending into Lake Washington on the pier? Two of those condos, both studios, are for sale in one package for $629,000, down $10,000 from when they were first listed. Both are pretty no-frills, although one has a much more modern kitchen than the other. The headline, of course, is being literally on top of Lake washington.
