Imagine taking in expansive Lake Washington and mountain views that pour into your home every day. Homes along this upscale stretch of Mt. Baker hillside are the first in Seattle to see the sun rising over the Cascades. And once a year when summer gets in full swing, you’re that close to Seattle’s greatest annual event when hydroplanes and sonic booms buzz the city during Seafair. Every summer weekend the shoreline road closes for bicycles only, and jogging and bike paths lead to parks, fishing, and marinas nearby.

Rainier and the further snowy peaks of the North Cascades, and nearly every bedroom features a view balcony to take in the vistas, and an exclusive design eliminates shared walls for the ultimate in privacy.
