Ballard Homes For Sale | Ballard Real Estate

Uff da!  The Ballard neighborhood has a rich Scandinavian fishing culture which is evident in the memorials and community art work showcasing its heritage.  Ballard feels like a separate city from Seattle, and it was for 16 years before it was annexed back in 1907.  Today the population is made up of much more than Scandinavians, with a large number of young families and singles.  Ballard is known for the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks, or just The Ballard Locks.  This is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Seattle.  The fish ladder and the Carl S. English Jr. Botanical Garden are what draws the crowds.  Others visit for the restaurants, shops and pubs.  On Sundays, the popular Ballard Farmers Market is located on Ballard Ave.  Other Ballard landmark include Golden Gardens Park - one of the best Puget Sound beaches,  the Nordic Heritage Museum and the Shilshole Bay Marina.  In the 90's, Ballard began to experience a real-estate boom. By early 2007, nearly 20 major condominium/retail projects were under construction or had just been completed within a five-block radius of downtown Ballard. The new developments added roughly 2500 new households to the neighborhood.  This growth in urban density is the result of the neighborhood plan aimed to reduce suburban sprawl by targeting certain Seattle areas for high-density development.  So today, Ballard has become a highly desired location to live with all the amenities within walking distance from your home.
