Olympic Hills; the Next Big Thing!
Another lesser known neighborhood in NE Seattle is Olympic Hills. It is primary a single family neighborhood tucked in between Lake City Way on the east, 15th Ave NE on the West, 125th on the south and 145th on the North. In 3 years, Olympic Hills Elementary will be in a brand new building, and rumor has it, it will be a magnate school with some sort of special option such as language immersion. With a new school and improved programs, proximity to both 15th and Lake City Way, Northgate close by and access to I-5, this is a hot up and coming market!
Olympic Hills is the perfect spot for the first time home buyer looking for a great value for their money within the Seattle city limits. Current homes on the market range in price from $299,000.00 to $649,000.00. The average lot size is around 8000 square feet with some lots of over 14000 square feet. You will find a mix of styles ranging from the tiny post war bungalows, original farmhouses, 60’s-and 70’s split levels and ranches to brand new contemporary homes.
Are you an investor looking for a rental property or for that diamond in the rough that needs some love and attention to make it shine again? Most of the homes in Olympic Hills average 3-4 bedrooms and 1.75 bathrooms with an average total square footage of 1800 square feet. Perfect for either the flipper or the landlord.
To top it all off, Olympic Hills is home to the Lake City branch of the King County library, the Lake City Neighborhood center and the Lake City Farmers Market that runs April to October. Not to mention the many great restaurants along the Lake City Corridor including Thai One On, Toyoda Sushi, Romio’s Pizza and Pasta and my personal favorite, the Elliot Bay Brewery, the best burgers in town! At 123rd is the hidden gem of Lake City Park with a new play structure and lots of room to run and play. All this plus the new school, central location within the Seattle city limits make Olympic Hills an ideal place to buy right now.
