The Pacificview Neighborhood is one of Bellingham's better neighborhoods. The schools servicing this part of town have higher than average ratings per student test scores. The lots are quite large. The streets are wide, and I heard one of them is even paved with gold!
The large size of the lots means there is far less population density than most other areas in Bellingham. These homes are primarily custom built, leading to a better qualiity home than in many other areas in Bellingham. The development itself is around 15 years old, and when built these homes were higher priced homes complete with CCR's (Covenant/Codes/Restrictions) to protect your investment. Having CCR's means that there are rules to follow.
While fairly close to downtown, Pacificview is still close to biking trails including Galbraith Mountain as well as Lake Padden to the south.
Area demographics point to a typical amount of families in this neighborhood. The income level of most of these families will be higher than average for Bellingham, but not as high as the Edgemoor neighborhood.
This home is in fact pending, which means that there is already an accepted contract on it. If you are interested I can ask the listing agent if this pending is very solid, since not all pending sales result in a closed transaction. Please let me know and I'll get right on it if you'd like. I can also put you in touch with the neighborhood association.
Have a nice day!
