Capitol Hill. It is bordered on three sides by the Washington Park Arboretum, which only adds to its secluded and private atmosphere, plus it is home to the Broadmoor Golf Club.
Long before the area was settled, the Puget Mill Company snapped up this land and began logging the trees. Then, during the time of the development of the University of Washington, who wanted to create the arboretum, part of the land was traded for that cause in return for utility work for a new residential community. As a result, Broadmoor was made possible. Since then, more land has been gained to make the Broadmoor Golf Club.
The atmosphere here is a lot like you would imagine from a gated community; incredible houses (of which, according to Zillow, none are less than 1800 square feet), immaculate landscaping, and quiet, weaving streets. One of the charms of the neighborhood is the variety of house styles; there are no two that are alike, which is different from some other residential communities.
Activities and Attractions
Broadmoor doesn’t have a business district to call its own, but that doesn’t matter because of its close proximity to the amenities in Madison Park, Capitol Hill, and Montlake. A quick glance at the community blog shows that they have plenty of events to get together as a community, from potluck dinners to a 4th of July parade. If you do end up living here, make sure to join the golf club, or at very least try and find someone you know who is having a wedding reception there!
