Located along the sweeping shores of Lake Washington, just west of downtown Bellevue, Medina has countless amenities and local recreation. The water’s edge, nicknamed “Medina’s Gold Coast,” has just over 3,000 residents. Privacy, security and beautifully maintained neighborhoods are synonymous with Medina. With unparalleled waterfront exposure, his private and very quiet community is one of the most coveted in the region. Known for its prestigious and challenging course, the Overlake Golf and Country Club sits along the eastern border of Medina offering a very playable, enjoyable, and well-maintained course.
Clyde Hill is known for its spacious, estate-sized lots. The philosophy of the City is to retain the original gracious and wooded character of the community and to remain a relatively small, simple and intimate community. The amenities, the quality residential areas, the parks, the views and natural landscape are all items the community intends to maintain. The minimum residential lot size allowed in the zoning code is 20,000 square feet, with many smaller lots existing from before incorporation. Clyde Hill has a total area of about 632 acres with a population of 2,984 according to the 2010 Census. While the City is a separate incorporated municipality, it has the character, function and land use pattern typical of an established residential neighborhood usually found within larger cities.
Arguably the most elite real estate in the Seattle region, Hunts Point, Yarrow Point and Evergreen Point command exceptionally high values for their predominately waterfront parcels located along the shores of Lake Washington. In addition to their position at the water’s edge, most properties offer sweeping territorial, lake, and city views that are unmatched locally. While Hunts Point and Yarrow Point are cities unto themselves, Evergreen Point is a part of the City of Medina. All are served by West Bellevue’s adjacent commercial district with ample retail and restaurant offerings. Locals relish the sylvan nature of the Points and the natural privacy that remains with living in an urban forest.
