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 water views:

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, and Westlake.

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.

Using the Team Troy custom property search, you can specifically find homes that are waterfront or have water views, get started here:
