One of the most beautiful places to live in Seattle, and an amazing neighborhood to have grown up in. The community is close and there are so many ways to meet your neighbors, from events to shared amenities (e.g. the pool). It's extremely safe, too, and very family-oriented.

Beautiful scenic views. Safe area where neighbors are nosy enough to let you know about abnormal activity but not enough to pry. Lots of outdoor life, walking trails, biking and a neat club house with tennis and swimming.
Employment in the Seattle area is growing. Construction is at an all time high and large companies like Amazon, Microsoft and the Gates Foundation are hiring at a steady pace. I am a pre-med major and am confident I could return to Seattle upon graduation and find employment within my field.
