North of Seattle and to the east of I-5 is a small neighborhood known as Olympic Hills, which is adjacent to the larger community of Lake City. Olympic Hills lies between the city-owned Jackson Park Golf Course and Lake Washington. Despite its small size, home buyers should be able to browse the MLS listings and find plenty of choices within this popular area.
Since the Olympic Hills community is a little farther from downtown than many of the other Seattle neighborhoods, the median home prices tend to be a bit lower. In fact, the median home price currently in Olympic Hills is just above $350,000, making it a more affordable community than many others in Seattle. The neighborhood is made up almost entirely of single family homes.
The nearest attraction for residents of Olympic Hills is the afore mentioned Jackson Park Golf Course which is just a few blocks away. For those looking for access to the shores of Lake Washington, Matthews Beach Park can be found a short drive to the south of Olympic Hills near the Burke-Gilman Trail. Of course, driving a few minutes back to I-5 makes it possible to quickly travel north or south and visit many of the other great activities that the Seattle area has to offer.
For the buyer that hopes to call Olympic Hills home, keeping a close eye on the homes for sale within the neighborhood will be important because this market can move quickly. Homes for sale within Olympic Hills, as well as nearby neighborhoods like Lake City, Victory Heights, and Meadowbrook may not last long on the market thanks to the many benefits to living in this part of Seattle.
