Laurelhurst Neighborhood Seattle

When people look for places to live in Seattle they generally go for some of the more ‘well-known’ neighborhoods located close to Downtown Seattle. However, just on the shore of Lake Washington and Union Bay is the neighborhood of Seattle. It is full of tranquil landscapes and beautiful homes; it really should be one of the top places on your list when searching for places to live in Seattle.

Laurelhurst Neighborhood
Laurelhurst is predominantly rather grand waterfront homes which unfortunately command a rather high price tag, although as you move further inland you can find some pretty affordable properties for those that wish to bring up a family in this rather delightful neighborhood in Seattle. Although of course the closer you are to the waterfront the better your views of Lake Washington and The Cascade Mountain Range will be.

Perhaps the biggest appeal of living in Laurelhurst neighborhood is the fact that you have access to a private beach club which of course has a swimming beach, sailing lessons and plenty of other waterfront activities. In fact, if you do end up purchasing a house in Laurelhurst then I suggest that you look into joining this beach club as soon as possible. The social connections that you will make here will be worth it when you are getting acquainted with the area, and you will of course get to know a bit more about the community feeling that Laurelhurst prides itself on. Once you are here, you honestly will not want to leave.

The place doesn’t really have a ‘city feel’, in fact, a great deal of the businesses are owned by Laurelhurst residents which really does help invoke that community feel, as you head further into Seattle you do lose this ‘feel’. This is one of the main reasons why people like living in Laurelhurst Seattle.

Owing to the fact that this is a fairly affluent area the crime rate isn’t that high, in fact it is one of the lowest in Seattle and therefore makes an ideal location to raise a family. The Laurelhurst community work tirelessly to ensure that the area remains beautiful and you can quite clearly see that whenever you enter the Laurelhurst neighborhood Seattle.

Everything that you could possibly want to get involved with is right on your doorstep in Laurelhurst with a plethora of shopping opportunities, bars and restaurants at your disposal. Although if you want to venture out a little the transport connections to downtown Seattle are absolutely fantastic and you shouldn’t really have too much trouble.

For those looking to raise a family in this area then you will be pleased to know that the schools are pretty good in terms of education. There are four schools in the area, many of these in specialist subjects. Many people do find that they need to venture out of the neighborhood for more general education, but you are close by to some of the best educational facilities in Washington State so you shouldn’t find this too much of a problem.

If you have a bit of a budget and want to have some of the most astounding views possible whilst still being within easy reach of Downtown Seattle then I really cannot suggest a better location than Laurelhurst. It really is absolutely stunning.
