Victory Heights is bordered on the west side by 5th Avenue, north by Northgate Way, east by Lake City Way and south by 90th or 95th Avenue NE.
It became part of Seattle in 1954. The neighborhood was named after the Victory Highway which is now Lake City Way. Northgate Mall sits on the west side. The new Northgate Library and Community Center has its' home here as well.
There are a couple of things I love about this neighborhood:
First Thornton Creek meanders through and there are a couple of green areas designated by the city including Thornton Creek Park #2. This is a lush, cool, secluded woodsy spot with a path taking you to a surprising urban oasis.
Secondly, Victory Heights is a pretty, old-fashioned neighborhood with mid-sized one-story homes built in the 30's, 40's, and 50's. The town homes, and condos that are transforming many Seattle neighborhoods have not made it to Victory Heights yet.
It is still possible to find a nice small home on a quiet street for a great price in Victory Heights. Homes range from $400,000 - $800,000.
