Perched on the top of the hill between Lake Washington and Wedgwood, it’s no surprise how View Ridge got its name.


This area used to be covered in trees, so technically there was no view to be had before the land was developed. Once the landowner decided to dabble in real estate, however, that all changed. Trees were slashed, lots were cleared, and suddenly Lake Washington and beyond were visible. The area was annexed into Seattle in 1942, and it wasn’t until 1988 that the last lot was finally sold and built upon.

This primarily residential area is definitely tranquil and well kept; houses have yards and streets have roundabouts. It’s a great place to be if you aren’t a fan of traffic and other city noise, though you don’t have to go far to run your basic errands; Wedgwood is just down the hill. Plus, if you’re the ‘club’ type of person, Sand Point County Club and View Ridge Swim and Tennis Clubs are both located in this neighborhood.
