Laurelhurst Articles and Reviews
One of Seattle's bank-breaking gems
Some of the most stunning houses I have ever laid my forever-not-rich-enough eyes upon are located in Laurelhurst on that little peninsula jutting out into Union Bay. This is rich man’s land, but doesn’t mean we can’t wish. The waterfront houses in this nabe are gorgeous, while the rest of the housing stock is merely beautiful. I guess that’s not so bad either though. There is little in the range of food and or drinking options, but you are very close to the U-district and other excellent dining nabes in Laurelhurst. You could also just have your chauffeur drive you wherever you want to go: the average house price is well over 700K here.
