Denny-Blaine, WA Homes for Sale
Denny Blaine is a small neighborhood (also known as Harrison) on the shores of Lake Washington. Though small, it is one of the most affluent and exclusive neighborhoods in Seattle, with some of the most beautiful lakeside homes. The real estate is a mixture of large turn-of-the-century hand-built mansions and newer contemporary residences or mid-century moderns.
The Streets around Denny Blaine are winding and rambling, and combined with the abundant old-growth tree cover one has the impression of being lost in a grove while there. Denny Blaine is very near Madrona, a lovely neighborhood with plenty of shops, eateries, cafes, pubs or wine bars, and so Denny Blaine only feels like it’s far away from everything. In fact, everything you might need is within walking distance!
The illusion of seclusion is also party due to the preponderance of parks and lawns—in addition to the shoreside Denny Blaine Park and Howell Park, both popular summer swim spots, there are numerous other public green spaces. The Denny Blaine Lake Park includes a large pond with gazebo that’s great for gazing or feeding ducks, and Viretta Park is a treed green slope near-by that’s prefect for strolls. Harrison Ridge Greenbelt, 3.5 acres of trees along the slope of Denny Blaine, creates a beautiful and flourishing natural wildlife corridor.
