Oh how I do love Green Lake and the appeal it has over me. I’m a runner, so I want to say thank you for giving me flat trails to run until my heart’s content. But no thank you when I get low times in races with hills.
On a more serious note, Green Lake has tons to offer – we know this, right (?) or else you wouldn’t be reading about this awesome Seattle neighborhood. It has the schools, the park, the location, the water, the views, the new architecture, the old architecture, the history, libraries, pizza joints, amazing schools, and yes Starbucks.
Looking for great Green Lake homes for sale? Well there’s a new kid in town and it’s called 8552 Densmore Avenue North.
This beauty, built in 2006, has over 3,400 square feet of functional, livable space with every inch thoughtfully laidout. Spacious front porch to watch the walkers go by, lofty ceilings with stylish two toned neutral colors to add to the airy appeal. 4 bedrooms and 5 baths including two master bathrooms all on the upper floor. The walk-in pantry keeps the main kitchen virtually clutter-free. An easy two car garage accessed through the private alley. Did I mention the A/C and a back-up generator? This home has it all.

F.A. McDonal School Re-Opens In 2011
…and we couldn’t be happier. For 29 years this vacant school has served as THE neighborhood hub for the Green Lake and North Wallingford ‘hoods: you name it and it’s got it: play structures, picnic tables, roller skating, basketball, a larger than life neon diagraham of the United States, kickball, dog park, a site for many movies…
Now we get to have our cake and eat it too! F.A. McDonald School turns the lights back on and ready for kids K-5 to take ahold of the halls again in 2011. And we still get to use our neighborhood hub for all the activities we’ve gotten used to … just on the off hours of school time.
