New: Neighborhood Profile: Kenmore’s Transformation into a Vibrant Community

Posted on Sep 21, 2017


Three large industrial silos sit on the edge of Kenmore, and the town’s residents are about to transform these towers into art. For the past year, residents have posted signs on these silos that read “Let’s Beautify This,” urging passers-by to donate to a GoFundMe account. This project speaks to both Kenmore’s current exciting revitalization and its strong sense of community.

Located northeast of Seattle on the tip of Lake Washington, Kenmore is an up-and-coming, medium-sized town. Here’s some more information on why this is a great spot to buy a home right now, along with a humble suggestion of a listing you might love.

Real Estate Stats

The median home value in Kenmore is $559,300, and the median rent is $1,896 per month. I’m currently drooling over this gorgeous two-level condo in Kenmore with three bedrooms, including a spacious master bedroom that has a bathroom with double sinks (you’ve know you’ve made it in life when you have two sinks in your bathroom). The condo also has an updated kitchen with laminate countertops and a cozy gas fireplace for those long northwest winters. Also, how great would it be to drink your coffee each morning on this cute deck overlooking a pretty wooded area?

This condo is a five minute walk from Thai food, a Starbucks, and other retail shops. It’s also a 10 to 15 minute walk from several local breweries.

Like many cities surrounding Seattle, Kenmore is growing more popular with potential homebuyers each day. Because the town’s real estate prices will only continue to rise, it’s smart to buy now when you can still find a good deal. Contact Pickett Street at (425) 502-5397 or info@pickettstreet.com for more information about this listing before it gets snatched up.

Neighborhood Vibe

Kenmore’s population is nearly 22,000. The neighborhood is a diverse and safe place to call home, with good schools and easy access to both Seattle’s bustling scene and Lake Washington’s natural beauty. Kenmore residents describe the town has having a friendly community, a safe and quiet atmosphere, and a relatively easy commute to Kirkland, Seattle, and other nearby cities. Many residents also comment on the fact that much of the town is walkable.

Kenmore’s downtown area is currently undergoing several development projects to beautify and energize the space; the town has a new city hall and library, as well as a new community gathering space called The Hangar. Kenmore is also home to Bastyr University, the largest naturopathic college in the United States.

Things to Do

Both Seattle and Kirkland are about 20 to 30 minute drives from Kenmore, making these cities easy excursions for Kenmore residents, However, the town also has its own attractions. Residents can enjoy easy access to the Burke-Gilman Trail, as well as several parks, including Log Boom Park and the wooded Saint Edward State Park. :ocated on the shores of Lake Washington, Saint Edward is dog-friendly and offers several miles of hiking and biking trails. Kenmore is also home to several breweries, such as the newer Cairn Brewing and the popular 192 Brewing.
