Located on the shores of Lake Washington, Windermere is an upscale neighborhood with great views and a private atmosphere.


Windermere developed alongside nearby Laurelhurst. Shortly after the native trees were removed, many moved into the area to try their hand at farming. This endeavor didn’t last long, as people recognized the potential for real estate development—especially suited for the wealthy. The neighborhood was annexed into Seattle in 1910, but it wasn’t for another thirty years or so that the area filled up with residents. Since then, little has changed. Windermere has kept the quiet residential feel that made it so popular to begin with.

The overwhelming feeling here is that of safety, security, and neighborliness. There aren’t many community events, and you won’t find a business district to appeal to visitors, but somehow when you’re there, you don’t feel like you’re missing out on anything. After all, when you have an amazing house with a stunning view, what else could you want?

 Activities and Attractions

Residents enjoy the amenities of a private park that has a playground, a ball field, tennis courts, and a lakefront beach. There is also easy access to the business district along Sandpoint Way, which has many options for shopping and dining. We like the always-good Pagliacci Pizza and the lesser-known Sand Point Grill.

The Burke-Gilman trail runs right through the neighborhood, so if you enjoy biking, blading, or just a scenic stroll, you’ll have the perfect place to do it.
