Ballard Seattle real estate can be divided into two main areas separated by NW 65th Street. North of this line, you will mainly find single-family homes (houses) of all shapes and sizes from Tudors, Craftsmen, one-story ranch homes and little bungalow homes that have hardly changed since they were built. In more recent years, some of those smaller homes have been replaced by large, high end, million-dollar homes.
