King County Metro route 28, like the 26, runs up Aurora from downtown, and starts making more frequent stops once it exits on the outskirts of Fremont. But the 28 heads the opposite direction, bearing toward Ballard before running up on Eighth Avenue Northwest.

From there, it runs up both Eighth Avenue and Third Avenue through Crown Hill, Greenwood, Broadview, and Bitter Lake (the neighborhood), stopping on the very tippy-top of the city limits at North 145th Street, where Seattle becomes Shoreline.

Along the way, it hits both Carkeek Park and Bitter Lake (the lake)—plus a whole mix of densities and price points, from commercial centers to primarily single-family neighborhoods.

We’ve found six notable homes along the route, starting closer to Ballard and moving all the way up the northwest edge of the city. Get ready for sleek modern homes and cute craftsman cottages alike.

Up near the north end of the city limits, this house has a whole five bedrooms and a huge backyard. While it was built in 1991, it looks like a lot of area homes from the 1970s. Despite being a little off the beaten path, this one will still set you back; it’s listed for $824,950.
