The Lakeview Neighborhood of Kirkland

The Lakeview Neighborhood of Kirkland Washington is fairly easy to define since the right boundary as shown above is the railroad track, the left is Lake Washington, the south goes as far as 98033/Kirkland border and the top starts at 68th Ave.

Single Family Homes in Lakeview, Kirkland WA 98033

The 5 homes that have sold In Lakeview in the last six months have had spectacular views, and ranged in price from $940,000 to $2,800,000.  There are no single family homes in escrow as of today. 17 are for sale.  One home just came on the market about a week ago for $670,000.  The most expensive on market right now is a townhome in Marsh Commons priced at $2,500,000. Actually there are two of them in Marsh Commons, and another home nearby at the same price. There are 5 homes priced between $1,500,000 and $2,000,000.  There are 6 priced between $1,000,000 and $1,500,000.  Many of these are attached housing, towhomes, even in the highest price range, many with spectacular mountain and lake views.

Condos in Lakeview, Kirkland Wa 98033

There are 37 condos for sale, with two of those in escrow. Many of the condos are equally as expensive as the single family homes, and some are equal in square footage.  The rare gem of a lower priced condo with a fabulous view is a lifetime hold vacation place for most anyone!  It may be small, but what a place to come home to for under $350,000.  A lot of people think they can't afford Lakeview, but for those with patience and who are willing to sacrifice some amenities for location in the lowest price ranges, it's a great lifestyle!

The most expensive property sold in Lakeview sold for $3,750,000 in April of 2008 and was just over 5,000 sf of opulent finishes with spectacular views across Lake Washington of the Mountains and The Seattle Skyline.  There was a condo that sold for more at $4,900,000, but it was really two condos turned into one, and I'm not sure if the new owner converted it back to two units. 

Lakeview is a neighborhood where "condo" is clearly not the poor sister to single family home.  Many of the best residences in Lakeview are condos on the water...and off the water, for that matter.  Views and lifestyle, walk to Downtown along the Lake.  It's about As Good As It Gets.

Kirkland Weblog is a great source of info on Kirkland.  It's more of a blog for residents, than a place for people thinking about moving to Kirkland.  A blog with neighbors talking to each other more than simply a "brochure" about Kirkland.  It's chock full of pretty much anything that's ever happened since the blog's been around. Right now the buzz is all about Jason on the Bachelor being from Kirkland.  But nose around the blog and you will get a pretty good feel for the area, especially Downtown.  Lakeview is often referred to as Carillon at one end, Houghton in parts, and even sometimes "Downtown".
