The Lake Hills neighborhood of Bellevue was developed in the 1950s and boasts many original mid-century modern homes originally built to provide housing for Boeing engineers.
Today, the neighborhood boasts a location that makes it convenient to downtown Bellevue, Redmond’s Microsoft campus and points beyond via easy access to both State Route 520 and Interstate 90, notes Jones, and is attracting young families and professionals.
Lake Hills residents have easy access to nature via the Lake Hills Greenbelt trail, which weaves through the neighborhood, encompassing 127 acres of trails and wetlands. The park has its own ranger station on SE 16th Street with a large Urban Demonstration Garden immediately adjacent. The Lake Hills Farm Fresh Produce stand and the Larsen Lake Blueberry Farm stand in homage to the heritage of the Yakama Indians and Asian-Americans who farmed the land.
Conveniently located close to shopping, restaurants and entertainment, Lake Hills is a highly desirable location.
