I agree with most of what you have already heard from the other agents. Mostly you want to be north of downtown, maybe even in south Bothell or Kenmore as well. These are all wonderful areas that are family friendly. In fact, Kenmore was voted by Family Circle magazine as one of the 10 best cities in the United States to raise a family. Best thing for you to do is come visit & see for yourself. You also might want to contact some of us directly to have a conversation. I would be happy to discuss the are with you if you fell inclined to do that.

Good luck to you in any case,

I lived near downtown Kirkland for over 20 years. There are cul-de-sacs in Forbes Creek, Houghton,
parts of Rose Hill, Bridle Trails. Cul-de-sacs will be in housing developments of which there are
many.

North Rose Hill is a great area. There are lots of culdesacs, and even a very nice park that was paid for and built by the residents of the community. We have lived here for 13 years and have watched the children from birth, taking their first steps, riding their first bicycles and now they are nearly grown up.from There is also a variety of older and newer homes with nice fenced yards for you to choose from. Mark Twain Elementary school is getting very high ratings. North Rose Hill is a hidden gem.

The heart of Kirkland near Downtown and close to City Hall is built out on a grid, so cul de sacs are pretty non existent. It really depends on the price range and how close to Downtown you want to be. You don't see "cul de sacs" much until you get into tract housing.

Best to start with which schools you want to consider in Kirkland and then move to commute issues when determining which neighborhood. Unlike the good old days, kids are not necessarily all over the streets in this rainy area on a year round basis. You can go to most any neighborhood almost year round and not see a lot of children outside on the streets.

How old are the children? Turtle Park on 9th in Norkirk-East of Market is a favored park for small children near Downtown. The 2nd favorite park that is for small and slightly older children is in Rose Hill. If the children are over 8 or 10 years old, activities and favorite parks depend on their areas of interest.

I grew up on Finn Hill. We had a perfect hill for sledding on the few snow days. Lots of quiet streets for biking.

Hi Skippy,
Forbes Creek just north of downtown, Finn Hill and Kingsgate fit your description. Kirkland is very hot right now. Homes are selling in days often for well over the list price.
