Rockwood Spokane Homes For Sale

Peaceful suburban living along tree-lined streets


Designed by the Olmsted brothers, this district is a nod to the tree-lined streets and beautiful landscapes Spokane offers.
Curving streets with triangle parks, lined with extraordinary historic houses and home to Rockwood Boulevard, a designated historic district on the National Register of Historic Places.
While Rockwood is located close to downtown Spokane, it offers residents a quiet, sophisticated neighborhood in which to live. Historic homes and buildings suffuse the area among the grand Ponderosa Pine and Douglas fir trees. Homes are set back from the tree-lined curb, offering privacy along beautiful lots.

In the 1800s, the area was originally named Montrose by its founder, Francis Cook, for its hilly topography dotted with wild roses. By 1907, the preeminent landscape architects, the Olmsted Brothers, were called upon to plan and design the neighborhood. Montrose, or Mount Rose, became Rockwood, the beautifully historic neighborhood of today.

Combining a vast blend of architectural home styles gives Rockwood a distinctive personality and emphasizes its historical transformations. Strolling along the picturesque streets, historic buildings are set among exquisite Queen Anne, English Tudor Revival, Craftsman, and Modernist homes. Classical homes, as well as luxurious apartments, are available for all lifestyles.
