Roosevelt District

Anticipating the opening of the Roosevelt Light Rail station within 2 years, Redfin™ named Seattle’s Roosevelt District one of the nation’s hottest neighborhoods (alongside Eastwood in Nashville, Hyde Park in Austin, and Mount Pleasant in Washington DC). Distinguished by Washington State’s highest-rated schools, convenient access to Seattle’s best transportation options, proximity to restaurants, cafes, groceries and all major services, as well as the city’s most luxuriant green spaces, Roosevelt is poised to become the West Coast’s next urban mecca.

Here you’ll be able to stroll the shaded, meditative sanctuary of Ravenna Park (once known as Big Tree Park), admiring old-growth maples, redwoods, Douglas firs, alders, cedars, willows and giant fern, or jog the 2.8-mile loop around picturesque Green Lake, before hopping on the Light Rail to Sea-Tac Airport and destinations worldwide, for work or pleasure. By car you can easily zip on to I-5 and the scenic 520 floating bridge for quick access to Microsoft and other major Eastside employers in Bellevue, Kirkland and Redmond. For a hassle-free commute to downtown Seattle, glide down I-5’s express lanes.

Or enjoy the flexibility of three separate work-from-home environments within the Case Study House to finesse your invention or launch your start-up. Gourmet markets, cafes and eateries dot the pleasant, Craftsman-lined streets (the foil and backdrop for the stylistically distinctive Case Study House).  Nearby conveniences include Whole Foods Market and Safeway Groceries, one block away and open 24 hours.

Green Lake Elementary and Eckstein Middle School, both within a one-mile radius of the Case Study House, and Roosevelt High School, a mere five-minute walk away, consistently top lists of the region’s best public schools, making the Case Study House the ideal base for raising Seattle’s next generation.
