Of all of those, I think the best price to value, evolving area, future good investment winner is Greenwood. It's also just a fun, vibrant place to live. I live really close to there.
Thanks though I did say above outside of Seattle city.

Thought you meant outside of central Seattle, sorry. I think of the northern Seattle neighborhoods as distinct from the core. You will find a few historic home pockets in Edmonds and Mukilteo but as mentioned, many more in Everett and Snohomish, Everett the most. There are some beauties, for $750k you can be on the Grand Ave bluff overlooking Puget Sound in a vintage classic. Moderator cut: see note

I can remember, in the mid-60s, when Bellevue had only one stop-light. Our current suburbs don't date back much further than that. Most "development" in suburban areas outside of Seattle took place post-60s - prior to that you're mostly talking estates, farms, or tree-stands, with some towns sprinkled around. While some pockets of "classic" houses from the early-60s or earlier do exist in the suburbs, most are inside the municipal boundaries of Seattle, Tacoma, or Everett.

As far as "easterly" options, you will find more than a few "historic" homes (primarily Craftsmans and bungalows) in Monroe, some in North Bend, a few in Snoqualmie too.

There are quite a few old, old houses in Renton and Kent also.

I like hardwood floors that creak a bit when you walk on them.
