Lodged in-between Evergreen Point and Yarrow Point with Cozy Cove to the east and Fairweather Bay to the west is the renowned community of Hunts Point. What was a Lake retreat in the early 1900s only accessible by ferry departing from Cozy cove has now become Bellevue’s paramount community to reside in. Encompassing a total area of only 0.3 a mile with under 400 residents, Hunts Point is an elite club. The town is discrete, private and has managed to preserve much of its original charm which is why billionaires long to live there.
Ranked #1 per capita in income in the whole state of Washington, the Hunts Point community is one of the best places to own real estate in the world. Location-wise, its proximity to the 520 floating bridge permits easy access to downtown Seattle and a reverse commute to downtown Bellevue. Hunts Point has a long history of community involvement including the Spring Town Clean-Up, the Fourth of July celebration held on Yarrow Point, and various other celebrations that contribute to the make-up of Bellevue as a whole. The community is very generous and make great contributions to local charities and organizations.
Among the old growth trees where old Lake retreats have been replaced by newly built mega mansions on oversized lots lie some of the finest homes in King County. Though it has changed dramatically from a summer getaway community of second homes to primary waterfront homes with long privately gated driveways, Hunts Point has preserved its community spirit and charisma. With an average sale price of $5,150,000, to belong to the community is no small feat. Let’s just say your neighbor will be no average joe. Hunts Point feeds into the award winning Bellevue School district including Clyde Hill Elementary, Chinook Middle School, and Bellevue High School.
Hunts Point was once a camping ground for the Sammamish Indian tribe.
