The historic Innis Arden neighborhood in the Shoreline area is in the spotlight of the Seattle Times this week; with it’s mere 534-home small town appeal, watershed park, and beautiful private beach, it’s no surprise why so many seek to call this enchanted forest home.
Over the past few decades, very few of the homes here have changed
hands, moving from one generation to the next, and when houses were
sold, they did so within days, especially those under the $1 million
mark. The neighborhood itself sits on more than 675 acres, with no
sidewalks in sight, and no overhead streetlights. Many of those seeking
to move to the area are taking after local aerospace hero Bill Boeing,
who took off 80 years ago in search for a serene hunting and fishing
retreat from his mansion in the Highlands, and stumbled upon Innis
Arden. For more information on the neighborhood and it’s connection to
the Highlands area, visit the Seattle Times.
