The Pacific Northwest inspires. From Seattle to the surrounding cities, the area has perfected the art of balance, offering an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise with amazing hikes, family-friendly parks, and outdoor activities; a big city vibe and a tech-forward culture where both corporations and small businesses thrive; and most importantly, the insanely good food scene. Word has it, their coffee is pretty decent too.

With tech giants like Amazon and Microsoft headquartered in Seattle and more Bay Area companies making the jump, the Pacific Northwest has seen a surge in job growth and residents over the past few years, making it the fifth fastest growing city in the U.S. During the Coronavirus pandemic, 80,000 new locals joined the area, causing Seattle to become one of the top 10 hottest housing markets across the country.

Unlike most big cities, homebuyers here don’t have to forgo a spacious home with a yard for walkability to neighborhood markets and restaurants. Seattle’s local scene has grown and evolved, yet the city has stayed true to its authentic roots. New (and notable) restaurants, boutiques, food halls, and events sprout up regularly, while the classic mainstays remain loved. The energy and sense of community is one that stretches beyond the borders of Seattle to surrounding neighborhoods. From Bellevue and Kirkland to Redmond and Medina, the region offers a lifestyle with a balance of urbanity and tranquility.

Like this brand new home from our Verbena Collection located in the Central District of Seattle. Inside, the 3-bed, 2.5-bath home features contemporary design, loft space, and features for an indoor/outdoor state of mind. Its rapid transformation in recent years has given way to a new crop of local spotsSurrell, named Seattle Magazine’s Best Pop-up Restaurant; Vendemmia, an Italian-inspired restaurant where Chef Brian Clevenger crafts beautiful hand-made pasta and locally-sourced dishes; Canon, a unique craft cocktail bar with a retro, speakeasy vibe and cocktails that look like a chemistry project; And of course, there’s coffee at the local favorite—Squirrel Chops, a women-owned coffee shop and salon. With the Central District’s growing list of walkable restaurants and shops, paired with its calm residential vibe, it has quickly become one of Seattle’s most interesting and sought after neighborhoods for new house hunters.
