Neighborhood Spotlight: Perry District

In the last 5 to 10 years, this South Hill neighborhood has become one of Spokane’s hippest, featuring hot restaurants and trendy retailers. This neighborhood was born, if you will, back in the 1920s. But about ten years ago it was given a facelift from the city with new streets and sidewalks. Like a domino effect, multiple new businesses set up shop in the South Perry District, bringing life again to the neighborhood.

Homes in this neighborhood are mostly Craftsman and Victorian-styles, and typically between 15-hundred and 2-thousand square feet…built in the early 1900s.

Top Spots

  • Okay, top restaurant was hard to choose this week… so there are two winners. First, goes to South Perry Pizza: home to some of the best pizza in Spokane. This popular lunch and dinner spot is actually in an old laudromat. And the second winner, is Casper Fry (Public House & Eatery), serving up true southern food in the old Altamont Pharmacy building.
  • Top activity this week goes to the South Perry Street Fair. Perry street from 9th to 12th Avenues are blocked off and filled with vendors, food and music. It’s held the third Saturday in July every year, MEANING… the 18th annual South Perry Street Fair is tomorrow! I have more info on it in my blog, if you’d like to check it out.
  • And top coffee shop goes to The Shop. This neighborhood coffee shop features craft beer, live music and a fun outdoor patio.


Kids living in the South Petty District typically head to Grant Elementary, Sacajawea Middle and Lewis and Clark High School. Click below to find more information about those schools.

Here are my favorite listings in the Perry District that are on the market right now:

This home on South Denver Street would be a perfect starter home! It’s an adorable 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom Bungalow with 1,500 square feet for less than $150,000.




This picturesque Craftsman on the 1500 block of 12th Avenue is on the market for $199,900. It also has 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, but comes with a whopping 2,500 square feet.
