Norkirk, located on the West side of town located closest to Interstate 405 is an amenity filled dream. You wouldn’t be near Seattle without an ample supply of coffee shops, of which Kirkland has many. Restaurants and shopping are within easy reach and plentiful. The parks and recreation available are amazing. Spend a day at Waverly Park Beach, Tot Lock Park or Mini-Park all close to home. If you enjoy the arts, Kirkland Artist Studio Tour is a great way to keep abreast of the newest trends and local artists. Libraries and book stores are plentiful, and your kids will get a great education with top rated schools. A very low crime rate, great housing market and employment opportunities galore make the Norkirk neighborhood a great place to call home for families and anyone else who values convenience and endless amenities.
If you want to be close to it all and appreciate myriad activities, a strong sense of community and being close to it all, the Highlands neighborhood is where you’ll want to call home. Located right off Interstate 405, you’ll have quick and easy access to highways and public transit. Not only does Highlands offer you more shopping and dining options than imaginable such as Bottle Your Brand, where you can make your own wine labels among other tasty concoctions. Local breweries and coffee shops will give you the Seattle vibe, while remaining close to nature. Not only will you be close to the beach, but also to golf and tons of parks right within your own neighborhood. This is a great area for both singles and families due to its diversity, great housing market and schools. This neighborhood also has a lower population density than most of Kirkland, so you’ll be able to enjoy more open space, while still being close to the action. So many folks love to call Highlands their home and you will too!
Very appropriately named Moss Bay, you’ll be right on the water in this upscale Seattle suburb. A short trip across the bay and you have quick access to Seattle in about a half an hour commute. The 405 interstate and public transit are right within the neighborhood for convenience. Moss Bay gives you spectacular views and more parks and recreation than you can even imagine. Have a picnic at Marina Park Pavilion right on the water or perhaps dine in at Anthony’s Home Port, also right on Moss Bay. The area is well balanced with grocery stores and retail shopping for all your needs right at your fingertips. It’s no wonder Google has an office here, as this neighborhood caters to professionals who want the best, but still get a great value for their money with great home prices that are a great investment. Good schools and a comfortable climate add to the already astonishing place so many professionals love to call home.
