Perhaps the single most-exclusive community in the entire Seattle area, The Highlands is an address that any one in the Pacific Northwest would be proud to call their own. Technically located within Shoreline just to the north of Seattle, The Highlands is a gated community located near Seattle Golf Club. Many of the prestigious homes in this neighborhood have views of Puget Sound to the west, and all offer the luxury and privacy that you would expect in a community of this caliber.
If you would like further confirmation as to the quality of this neighborhood, you only need to look to the list of current and past residents in The Highlands. That list includes William Boeing, founder of The Boeing Company, John McCone, former Director of the CIA, and Mike McGavick, former SEO of Safeco Insurance. Of course, that is just a partial list – there are many other residents in the community who have made their mark in business all around Seattle.
In terms of the actual homes, it is luxury that you will find in this community more than anything else. Many of the homes date back several decades or more, and they often include several thousand square feet of living space. In keeping with the exclusivity of the neighborhood, buying a property in The Highlands will typically set you back more than $2 million – and often, the purchase price will be significantly beyond that number.
Outside the gates of this exlusive community, there are many parks in the area that provide for the opportunity to spend time close to the nature that has made the Pacific Northwest such as desirable place to live. Boeing Creek Park, Innis Arden Reserve Park, Carkeek Park, and more are all within a short drive from The Highlands. Also, as mentioned above, Seattle Golf Club is adjacent to the community, which is a private golf club that stands as one of the most respected in the region.
Living inside The Highlands is a dream opportunity that may not come along again. The inventory of properties in this community is extremely limited, and it will take a significant budget to call one of these homes your own. However, if you have a budget to match these asking prices and the right property happens to come onto the market, you just may be able to find yourself living in The Highlands along with many of Seattle’s elite.
