Kenmore by the lake

As the cities of Bothel and Woodinville were being built up, the heavily wooded real estate that would eventually become Kenmore was owned primarily by investors.  The vast fir and cedar forests would eventually become the fodder for a shingle mill on the North end of Lake Washington owned by John McMasters.  McMasters, who settled in the area in 1889, named the town of Kenmore in honor of his home town in Canada by the same name.

Kenmore has an interesting history.  The town’s discrete and somewhat difficult to navigate location allowed speakeasy’s to operate successfully under the radar during prohibition.  This made Kenmore a nightlife hotspot during Seattle’s Jazz Age which, of course, led to a booming alcohol industry that was far enough out for the Department of Revenue to largely ignore.  The area retained its reputation as an archipelago of entertainment with night clubs, pubs, dance halls and restaurants well into the 40’s.  It was a destination for many.

New roads were constructed which made travel into Kenmore much easier and the town was targeted by housing developers during the post-World War II era.  Kenmore soon began to grow and become a bedroom community with an active freshwater port on the Northern shores of Lake Washington.  Kenmore was eventually incorporated into King County on August 31st, 1998.

Why should I move to Kenmore?

The City of Kenmore’s affordable land costs, lakeside real estate as well as developable property allow for not just economic growth, but also quality of life opportunities unparalleled in the Puget Sound region.

Kenmore real estate offers beautiful landscapes and scenic lakefront views.  You are never far from outdoor recreation, parks and activities.  You are close to the major economic hubs and companies like Amazon, Starbucks, Boeing, Microsoft and many more industry leaders.  Kenmore is close to everything you need.

The city of Kenmore is easily commutable by Eastside, Seattle and Everett workers.  Highway 522 is the main highway leading West toward Seattle and I-5 and also East to I-405.  Seattle is about a 20 minute drive and Bellevue is about the same.  Sea-Tac airport is just a shuttle ride away.

The housing in Kenmore is widely varied from affordable and luxury, single family and condominiums, vintage and new, and everything in between.  Compared to the surrounding areas of Bellevue, Redmond, Kirkland and Seattle Metro, the Kenmore housing market is relatively affordable. 

What sort of fun things are there to do in Kenmore?

Kenmore is full of entertaining activities.  There are several shopping areas and a main downtown area with lots of restaurants, pubs and things to do.  Kenmore has several parks to explore, docks to fish, beaches to sunbathe on and hiking and biking trails including the 18 mile Burke / Gilman riding trail to get some of that fresh Northwest air in your lungs.  Not to mention Kenmore’s central location makes it easy to Uber your way into Seattle for a night of fun down by Pike Place Market and the Piers.  I guess what I’m saying is, there’s a lot of fun to be had in Kenmore! 

Lake Washington is the largest lake in King County and 2nd largest in the state.  It is a destination for many.  At over 22 miles long, the lake offers an endless amount of recreational possibilities.  From Tracy Owen Station at Log Boom Park, which is at the Northern most tip of the lake and surrounded by Kenmore, you can watch the Blue Angels practice for their part in the annual hydroplane races that take place during Seafair Weekend. 

If you are an outdoor enthusiast, Kenmore is just a short drive from Snoqualmie Pass Ski and Recreation area, or Steven’s Pass Ski Resort.  The Puget Sound is 30 minutes away and the Pacific Ocean isn’t much further.  Kenmore hosts several festivals, markets and fairs that go on throughout the year.  There are several golf courses including Inglewood Golf Club that are close by.  Hiking, biking, fishing, golfing, kayaking, skiing, camping, boating, dining, shopping.  The list goes on and on! 

What about Kenmore Schools and Education?

There is a reason that Kenmore is known to be a major center of opportunity in the Puget Sound region not only for businesses, but also individuals.  The number of individuals in the workforce that hold a four or more year degree is nearly double the national average.  Kenmore’s schools are nationally recognized and Kenmore’s proximity to well-known colleges and universities, such as the University of Washington and Bastyr University, makes it a prime location for families looking to the future.
