King County Metro route 40 is a long route that starts downtown and winds through several neighborhoods in Northwest Seattle.

After picking up in both the downtown core and South Lake Union, it winds through Westlake, then over the Fremont Bridge. After hitting downtown Fremont, it moves onto Ballard on Leary, then runs north on 24th Avenue to Loyal Heights, then east through Crown Hill and Greenwood.

It ends its run in Northgate, by North Seattle College, Northgate Mall, and the Northgate Transit Center.

Along the way, housing stock moves from denser options like townhomes and condos and slowly moves to more single-family zones, especially farther north. Right now, there’s a little bit of everything, but it doesn’t come cheap—especially if you’re looking for a little outdoor space, or something closer to the center of Ballard.

We’ve found six notable homes along the route, from condos to ramblers to craftsmans.
