Newcastle works no matter which part of Seattle or Eastside you need to access - 10-12 miles away from Redmond, Downtowns Seattle, Issaquah and 6 miles from Downtown Bellevue. Lots of new projects and developments coming through. Stunning homes overlooking the Newcastle Golf Club and a great brunch place with Calcutta Grill with views that will take your breath away. A+ schools. Newcastle Commons appears to be an exciting project in the works. Lots of local parks including Lake Boren and Newcastle Beach Park. Extremely safe. What’s not to love?

Newcastle is merely an exit on the 405 to most commuters headed back and forth from Renton to Seattle and Bellevue. However, tucked into this tiny municipality lies a quiet, isolated type of luxury many people look for but never quite find. Primarily made up of residences, the narrow "private-drive's" through the towering pine trees are enough to make any person fall in love almost instantaneously. Offering a forested, natural alternative to the developed suburbs of Bellevue, Newcastle is close enough to Renton, Redmond and Seattle to make the extra 5 minute commute worth it. Expect to find well manicure houses and lots of hidden corners in this all-around, family neighborhood.
Great neighborhood that is very safe at night. Low crime area compared to other neighborhoods around the city. Newcastle is mostly a residential area, so it is very family friendly. Neighbors are friendly, most like to keep to themselves. Commuting times are great, easy access to freeways and larger cities.
