New City Homes: If You Know, You Know

Oh Wallingford. This energized suburb on the north shore of Lake Union has long ticked all the boxes for locals and visitors thanks to its central locale, beautiful parks, elevated viewpoints, plus its delicious (and TV-worthy!) food. Soon, a handful of lucky people will be able to live in this bustling community at 4101 Wallingford — an upcoming collection of City Homes by Intracorp.

Lucky Wallingford

Wallingford is the latest Seattle area selected as a City Home neighborhood. It joins a select list of other prestigious communities, like the historic district of Ballard, as a fab place to come home to. What, specifically, makes Wallingford so special? The setting for the much-loved family film Harry & The Hendersons has certainly grown into a hub of notorious destinations.

Let’s start with Dick’s Drive In along 45th — home to minimalist-yet-perfect burgers and shakes that everyone from the suit-and-tie crowd to university students line up for. Or maybe some murg malai kebabs, the house specialty at Chutneys Bistro, is more your vibe. Or check out the Bizzaro Italian Cafe where Diners, Drive-ins & Dives made its elk bolognese, linguini with clams, and delish meatballs famous.

Rather explore than eat? Cool, cool. Maybe take in the Wednesday farmers market May through Sept (hint: fresh veg and meat at killer prices), or head to Gas Works Park and hit up the kite-flying hill or dine al fresco on the grassy slope overlooking the lake. Or, if your tastes lean toward the silly, visit Archie McPhee’s and browse the endless aisles of toys and gifts, including the rubber chicken museum this place is famous for.

Townhomes, Reimagined

Why all the fuss about City Homes? Because Intracorp has taken the traditional townhouse model and completely reworked it: Airy floorplans. Bedrooms and bathrooms galore. Kitchens with handy peninsulas for seating and storage. And 4101 Wallingford, in particular, has all that plus stunning rooftop decks that span the full dimensions of the home (yup, big!). From here, you’ll have your very own views of twinkly downtown, Mount Rainier, even some peekaboo ones of Lake Union. (Your Insta’s going to be busy).

The last City Homes sold out in a matter of weeks, and 4101 Wallingford is already headed in that direction. Contact us soon if you want to be registered for priority access.
