Located slightly northeast of Ravenna-Bryant and north of View Ridge, Wedgwood is much like its neighbor Maple Leaf to the west in flavor. Its residents are primarily professional in this largely middle class neighborhood, and most commonly work either downtown, a ten minute commute, or at the University, a five minute drive.
The housing styles are largely ‘Balch-built’ Cape Cods-named after their builder who worked during the 1940’s. Typically, they are one story with a basement, roughly 1800 square feet with hardwood floors. Balch-builts are very solid homes, most of which are owner occupied in Wedgwood.
Wedgwood is a community with shops, grocery stores and mom and pop stores scattered throughout. A further asset to this neighborhood is the Burke-Gilman Trail, which is only a few blocks away, and which many people use not only for recreation, but for commuting
