Leschi sits between the Mount Baker and Madrona neighborhoods along the shores of Lake Washington. In the late 1800s an amusement park, serviced by a cable car that ran from Pioneer Square, was located here. While the amusement park is long gone, the tranquility and beauty of Leschi remains. Its hillside terrain optimizes views of the Bellevue skyline, the Cascades and Mount Rainier. Home styles range from multi million dollar lakefront properties, to classic turn of the century homes, to more modestly priced houses and condos. Neighborhood parks like Leschi Park and Peppis Playground are popular with area families.
