5213 8th Avenue Northwest in Ballard.
| Via Windermere

One of Seattle’s east-west workhorses, Metro route 44 never touches downtown; rather, it starts in the University District and takes a relatively straightforward route through some main drags of Northwest Seattle, notably Wallingford and Ballard.

It goes in as straight of a line as it can in this area: Starting by Husky Stadium and the Link light rail station, it heads up to Northeast 45th Street, where it stays all the way through Wallingford as it winds up toward Aurora and turns into 46th. After cutting through Fremont, it takes the turn that converts 46th into Market Street and heads down through downtown Ballard before ending its run at the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks.

On the way, it stops through a few other neighborhoods, like the edges of Phinney Ridge and Fremont—hitting a lot of pockets of in-demand neighborhoods, from old Wallingford craftsmans to new Ballard condos.

We’ve found six notable homes along the route.

4402 Eastern Ave N
Seattle, WA 98103

Just off the main drag of Wallingford, this boxy—but not quite Seattle Box—three-bedroom home, built in 1917, has been thoughtfully maintained inside, with details like built-ins and a brick fireplace preserved. A finished basement continues the general style, with French doors and thick moulding. It’s listed for $1.15 million.

Seattle, WA 98107

This 1911 farmhouse plopped on a corner lot in Phinney Ridge has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a dreamy back deck ready for huge barbeques—although what appears to be a few different eras of remodels gives the inside a few different vibes. It’s listed for $1.5 million.

Just past the 44’s last stop by the Ballard Locks, this luxury house sits atop a peer looking out over the Sound. Three bedrooms include a master suite with a jacuzzi.
