Seattle’s Eastlake neighborhood enjoys a convenient position between the University District and the downtown core, which lies about 3 miles to the south. Portage Bay sits at the neighborhood’s northern edge, Capitol Hill and Cascade are the eastern and southern neighbors and Lake Union runs along its western edge. The focus of the community is the lake. The unique mix of housing includes lakeside condos with floor-to-ceiling windows, modern hillside apartments overlooking the lake and a small village of floating homes. Historic buildings such as Wembley Court, a Tudor cottage built in 1924, add character to the neighborhood’s architecture. Eastlake’s scenic beauty and close proximity to the University of Washington and downtown make it a popular location for students and their families, high-income urban singles and professional couples.
