Leschi

Leschi

Leschi is a neighborhood located within the city of Seattle, Washington. The neighborhood is named after Chief Leschi of the Nisqually tribe. Residences in Leschi include condominiums (especially along the lake), refurbished bungalows and craftsman, contemporary styles, bricks, Tudors and mid-century ramblers. Curvy streets wind away from the lakefront, which means many residences get at least a partial lake view.

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer described Leschi as "not an exclusive enclave for the rich, despite its million-dollar lakefront homes" and a "home to a racially and economically diverse group of people." The area "mixes stately turn-of-the century houses with far more modest homes". There are many parks from the popular Leschi lakeside park to pocket parks spread throughout the neighborhood.
