The Benefits of Living in Seattle

At Blue Fern Homes, there’s nothing we value more than building high-quality, carefully-crafted townhomes throughout the great city of Seattle—and we wouldn’t want to do it anywhere else. Seattle and its surrounding neighborhoods make for the perfect place to call home for anyone and everyone, and the benefits provided by living on the outskirts of the city are nearly endless. For the perfect balance of lifestyles, sometimes, living just outside of Seattle is the best way to enjoy the perks of the city while getting away from the fast-paced environment in the enjoyment of your own home—so read on to find out some of the amazing benefits of combining urban and suburban living in the Emerald City. 

A growing community

Thousands of people are moving to Seattle each year, making it one of the top five fastest-growing cities in the United States. Between the career opportunities, schools, attractions and overall atmosphere that the Jet City provides—it’s no surprise that Seattle has quickly become one of the most popular metropolises in the country. The city’s own tech giants, including Amazon and Microsoft, already employ hundreds of thousands of Seattleites—and recent additions like Google, Adobe, Dropbox, Apple, Facebook and Snapchat have brought even more career opportunities and economic benefits to the city. If you’re hoping to get into tech, aerospace, engineering, health, travel or nearly any industry—then Seattle is the place to be. Besides the booming local economy, the city is also a good place for start-ups. With the innovation that many Seattleites are always surrounded by, new businesses are constantly being born, and inspiration is always being shared. 

Seattle is also well known for being a great place to learn. Whether you’re a parent and are looking for good K-12 schools, or if you’re a student—Seattle has incredible schools, colleges, and universities to reflect the city’s passion for education. Our townhomes are located in the areas of inspiring, innovative school districts—ensuring the utmost education for all of our Blue Fern families. 

Like Blue Fern, Seattle is very eco-conscious and community-oriented. To work towards greater environmental health, the city is no longer allowing plastic bags at the grocery store. Additionally, Seattle’s environmental consciousness is reflected through an emphasis on organic products, limited product packaging, and bulk food stores. Residents care about the planet, and the entire community is constantly working towards a greener way to live. Combining this with the diverse population and extreme walkability, Seattle is quickly becoming one of the most forward-thinking cities in the country—making it no surprise that millions of people want to call the Emerald City home.

Local attractions

The entire Seattle area is packed with activities for singles, couples, families, and friends. Whether it’s exploring Seattle Center and riding up the Space Needle or visiting one of our world-class museums—Seattle living offers something for everyone. If you love kayaking, hiking, fishing or rock climbing—the entire regional area has endless activities for every type of outdoor enthusiast, from Green Lake Park to the closely-located Mount Rainier. For the shoppers, there are dozens of unique malls, boutiques, outlet centers and vintage shops to choose from. Or, if you are into festivals, there are always an array of art, music, and food festivals around the city. No matter your hobbies, interests or desires—Seattle has incredible entertainment options for all types of people. 


One of the most essential parts of Seattle is the wide variety of restaurants, coffee shops and eateries. You will never lack delicious dim sum, locally-caught seafood, creamy boba tea, savory curry and authentic street tacos for as long as you’re living here. Residents that have lived in the area for a long time can still find new places to eat due to the growing number of restaurants, and they always appreciate the Seattle staples that have been standing for years. 

The best of both worlds

Although living in downtown Seattle has its perks, living right outside of the Emerald City comes with all of the city’s benefits and more. When living in any of the Blue Fern areas—including Ballard, East Lake, Hillman City, Othello, Queen Anne and Shoreline—you receive easy access to all of the amenities, careers, entertainment and possibilities that Seattle has to offer, while simultaneously having just the right amount of privacy, peace, comfort and livability in your home. The urban Seattle scene is incredible, unique and full of one-of-a-kind benefits—and having a slower-paced, relaxed Blue Fern townhome to call home just minutes away creates the perfect balance of lifestyles. Our modern, eco-friendly townhomes are strategically located throughout the Seattle area, and no matter where our residents end up—there’s no doubt they enjoy the luxury of both urban and suburban living all at once.
