West Wash Park Homes

For the first time, Washington Park’s slightly more accessible cousin has topped the beloved park-cum-neighborhood in our ranking. Washington Park West has always been relatively middle-of-the-road— a solid, safe location with decent schools — so why the flip-flop?

This year, the neighborhood’s Cape Cods, bungalows, and Queen Anne Victorians — located just a few blocks west of its namesake park — saw a substantial increase in home sale prices as more people flocked to green space–adjacent abodes (we imagine houses won’t average sub-$700,000 for much longer).

Other reasons to fall in love with the area: easy access to vibrant Baker, cheery Platt Park, and I-25; two grocery stores; and a decent food and drink scene.
