Lake Sammamish Waterfront Homes

Seattle waterfront homes provide distinctive lifestyle options in the Puget Sound region.  Many neighborhoods have waterfront homes that range from houseboats to lakeside cottages and luxurious traditional estates.  While most of the Seattle area's waterfront homes are on Lake Washington, there are also waterfront homes on Puget Sound, Lake Union, Lake Sammamish, and a number of smaller lakes.

Waterfront Houses - Most Popular Neighborhoods

Lake Washington Waterfront

Lake Washington is the Seattle area's largest lake, as well as its most popular fresh water location for boating, fishing, and water sports.  Many of Seattle's most exclusive waterfront neighborhoods reside on Lake Washington, including Medina and Mercer Island.  Executives from Microsoft, Amazon, Costco, Starbucks, Nintendo, Paccar, and Expediters International live on Lake Washington, as well as many professional athletes from the Seattle Seahawks, Seattle Mariners, and former Seattle SuperSonics.  There are also some neighborhoods on the lake with less-expensive homes at more moderate prices.

Puget Sound Waterfront

Puget Sound is the saltwater inlet from the Pacific Ocean which passes Seattle and heads southward to Olympia.  West Seattle, the North Seattle shoreline, and many islands have residences along the Sound.  This is the closest feel to an ocean beach that you'll find in the Seattle area.

Lake Sammamish

Homes on Lake Sammamish range from moderate to luxurious.  This large lake has plenty of space for boating and fishing, and is surrounded by residential neighborhoods.  The water is calm, and the lake naturally drains out to Lake Washington, keeping the water level within a reasonable range throughout the year and allowing for docks on many properties.  With Marymoor Park on the North end and Lake Sammamish State Park on the South end, Lake Sammamish is a favorite recreation and relaxation spot for Eastside residents.

Lake Union

Lake Union is just North of Downtown Seattle.  It is surrounded mostly by commercial enterprises, floating homes, houseboats, and vessel marinas.  Houseboats can be simple barges with a cabin on top, while floating homes are often million-plus dollar custom homes built on high-end floats with permanent utility hookups.
