It’s impossible to picture Bellingham without the iconic Lettered Streets Coffee House, or the historic Pickett House, or the familiar winding nature of the Lettered Streets themselves. Back in the 1850’s, Bellingham was barely a town, using the bay to ship goods up and down the coast. As it grew, buildings expanded past the waterfront and farther inland to Fairhaven and Sehome. Today, a handful of the original buildings remain in the Lettered Streets neighborhood as priceless pieces of history.
The Lettered Streets neighborhood is a mixture of retrofitted single family homes, apartments, local businesses, and professional offices. Special care has been taken to ensure buildings remain updated and comfortable while still holding onto the historic charm! Exposed brick, classic architecture, and the original street layout all contribute to the preservation of history.
Without a doubt, the biggest advantage of Lettered Streets is how walkable and bikeable it is. Nearby there is the Haggen grocery store, Cool Beans coffee shop, Kulshan Brewery, and a variety of locally owned businesses that cater to the needs of the neighborhood. If you find yourself walking down one of the Lettered Streets, you’d experience the excitement of the city with the added historic twist that gives Lettered Streets its cozy and familiar feel.
The market is fairly competitive, as many clients enjoy the freedom of movement the neighborhood offers. Over the past couple years, the market has risen with the trends of the city but remains accessible to a wide variety of people looking for a home.
