In so many ways, Seattle is a hidden gem of a city to those
who visit for the first time. Many comment that they didn't expect to see so
many beautiful water views around every corner. In fact, many homes in the area
are specifically designed to take advantage of the water views, whether through
sweeping panoramic windows, orientation or even height. The topography of the
city often affords many homes on the hillside to have even a partial water
view. Even if you don’t have a water view, it is normally only a couple minutes
drive to the nearest body of water. You know you’re from Seattle if you have at
least one friend with a boat, know what paddle boarding is, and watch seaplanes
from your front porch. Here just a small sample of neighborhoods with striking
Downtown Seattle, Phinney Ridge, Ballard, West Seattle,
Fauntleroy, Shoreline, Magnolia, Queen Anne, Mukilteo, Edmonds, and Burien are
areas where you would be able to find Puget Sound views.
From Renton, Mercer Island, Bellevue, Kirkland, Bothell,
Kenmore, Lake Forest Park, Leschi, Madrona, Madison Park, Laurelhurst, and Sand
Point you might be able to gaze out your window at the lovely Lake Washington.
The bustling Lake Union is visible from Eastlake,
Wallingford, Fremont, the University District, South Lake Union, Queen Anne,
Let’s not forget Green Lake, a neighborhood with its own
dedicated body of water from which it is named.
There are many more bodies of water in outlaying areas such
as Lake Sammamish, the Snohomish River, Echo Lake, Lake Ballinger, and all the
islands as well as the peninsula.
