There are so many facets that residents love about this neighborhood such as the peace and quiet, well maintained homes, highly attended neighborhood association meetings and easy access to pretty much everywhere.  Not to mention a Kirkland address with a more affordable price tag!  Home prices range from the low $200Ks - the high $800Ks.  The median price is $465,000.  

There are still a few remaining homes built from the early 1900's and several built in the 50's and 60's; however remodels and newer construction are quite common here and some vacant land parcels are on the market.
