Ravenna

Urban-neighborhood with a not so urban feel.

  • what you’ll fall in love with

    Schools, parks, athletics...this place has it all! Ravenna is another Seattle neighbor-wood as we call it. Burke Gilman Trail, Cowan Park, and Ravenna Park make this treelined neighborhood perfect for the athlete or pooch.

  • market

    Ravenna made headlines in recent years as one of the hottest housing markets in the entire country. Appreciation was higher than 98% of all neighborhoods in the U.S..

  • What to expect

    Most of the housing is small apartment or condo buildings. Single-family homes consist of old charming turn-of-the-centuries, little 40’s worker bee homes, and brand new townhouses and large homes that will set you back a bit. You won’t find as many of the large condo buildings like in the University District. The prices are high in Ravenna. Great schools, shopping and entertainment coupled with never ending green space are why people move to Ravenna.

  • real talk

    Pricey but not for what you get. Plus, this neighborhood provides easy access to 520 for those who commute to Microsoft or the Eastside, plus the connector can pick you up! Bus-lines to Amazon are not bad but not the greatest either.

welcome to Ravenna

Ravenna has become one of Seattle’s most desirable communities. Cozy tudors and bungalows are mixed in with wonderful craftsman-style homes. The streets are quiet and tree-lined, making this a dreamy little pocket of Seattle living.  Good schools, beautiful parks, and athletic fields are the focal point for the residents of Ravenna. On afternoons and weekends, the parks and ball fields are bustling with life and young sports activists. Ravenna has earned itself a reputation as a wonderful community to call home.  While there are a limited number of restaurants and specialty shops within walking distance, many residents of Ravenna simply slip off to other areas for shopping and nightlife. Ravenna is close to Green Lake, the University Village shopping center, and near the freeway for downtown access. Many residents do their shopping on 65th Street, which has beautiful grocery stores, furniture stores, cafes, and just about everything else you may need.

Ravenna is a little neighbor-wood with tons of peace and quiet.

Ravenna is perfect for value and future appreciation

The top benefactors for UW and University Districts rapid growth are Ravenna, Bryant, View Ridge, etc. These neighborhoods will see many more transplants, shops, restaurants and of course home values should increase in the NE of Seattle for a longer period of time as compared with other Seattle neighborhoods. Still, compared to Seattle's other bluechip neighborhoods Ravenna is a relative value with median home values lower than Queen Anne, Green Lake, Capitol Hill and a slew of other Seattle neighborhoods. This is holding true at the moment with Ravenna ranking as one of our nation's fastest appreciating neighborhoods. Add on the commercial growth in the NE with the link light rail opening in 2021 and you have the receipt for good home investment. Stable, pretty and charming pretty much sums up Ravenna.

Neighbor-wood

Burke Gilman, Cowan Park, and Ravenna Park make up 58.3 acres of Ravenna -- a LARGE portion for sure. Mature charming old neighborhood streets provide a close-by sense of peace and quiet. Quick to downtown, good public transportation, and lots of natures best to behold. Dog tested and mother approved.

Transit is about to get so much better

The issue with Ravenna has long been the mass transit to downtown. This typically means a transfer by bus. However, this is about to change in 2021 when the light rail opens. Sure you might need to take a bus to 65th but the light rail runs every 4 minutes. So connecting to it is easy and stress free. Plus you can skip all the traffic! Oh, also worth mentioning is that Microsoft's Connector has many stops in Ravenna for those commuting east.

Ravenna schools are the BEST!

Ravenna's schools rank better, ALL of them, then 98% of all schools in the U.S.. If you are in this N.E. neighborhood it does not matter what school your home falls in. All schools are 10/10 according to great schools. This is indicative of a community involved in the public schools in Ravenna. If schools are important you can't do much better than Ravenna.
