Windermere

Located on the shores of Lake Washington, Windermere is an upscale neighborhood with great views and a private atmosphere. Bordered roughly by 45th on the east, 65th on the north and Lake Washington on its southern and western flank, Windermere offers some truly gorgeous views that stretch across the water towards Kirkland.

The overwhelming feeling here is that of safety, security, and neighborliness. There aren’t many community events, and you won’t find a business district to appeal to visitors, but somehow when you’re there, you don’t feel like you’re missing out on anything. After all, when you have an amazing house with a stunning view, what else could you want?

The demographics here are a bit lopsided; you’ll find lots of couples, lots of kids, lots of homeowners, and an extremely high median income. And even though its location may seem out of the way, there is actually quite easy access to other parts of the city.
