Seattle Real Estate Spotlight: Leschi

Leschi is a residential neighborhood that sits on Lake Washington, between Mt. Baker to the south and Madrona to the north. A lakeside commercial core and marina give Leschi the feel of a seaside town, and many of its beautiful homes have views of Lake Washington, Mount Rainier, and Mount Baker.


Named for Chief Leschi of the Nisqually tribe, Leschi became an attractive area for logging and milling in the early 19th century, including for mill owner Henry Yesler. A cable car line traversing the area's ravines was built in the late 1880s, and a marina was built just north of what is now Leschi Park in 1905. Cable-car access made Leschi a popular destination in the early 20th century, and at one time featured a zoo, a casino, a Vaudeville theater, and ferry service to the Eastside.

Points of Interest

Leschi has a small but well-established commercial core along Lakeside Avenue, featuring the Leschi Market, established in the 1940's and known for its homemade deli items and excellent wine selection. The neighborhood Starbucks is a popular destination for bicyclists who ride the route along Lake Washington, and Blu Water Bistro, Alicia's, and Daniel's Broiler provide dining options for residents. Leschi Park is a beautiful green space that looks out over the lake and connects to Frink Park.
