Megan Lingerfelt, 98144, Leschi
Leschi is fantastic because it feels quiet while still being close to activities. Working in Capitol Hill, I can walk on a nice day and enjoy the tree-lined streets and peek-a-boo views of Lake Washington and Bellevue.
Being in Seattle for only a year, my neighborhood has struck a balance for me that has served as a nice transition from small town to city life.
Leschi is close to all of the great Capitol Hill Restaurants and shops but feels tucked away. Many of my neighbors will walk their dogs off leash...traffic isn’t bad and it makes for great conversation starters.
The old houses also add history to the already charming character of the neighborhood.
