Updating your home insurance makes financial sense. Why wouldn’t you want to protect one of your most substantial assets? In most neighborhoods your home continues to grow in value. There are so many great communities around this city that make it a great place to call home.
Seattle Home Insurance: Exploring your Communities
The name Eastlake makes sense because it’s east of Lake Union. You can bypass I-5 traffic by traversing Eastlake into downtown Seattle. It’s a highly rated Seattle neighborhood with beautiful views of Lake Union. One of the best features of Eastlake is its parks. The I-5 Colonnade park offers a mountain bike course and an off-leash area for dogs. Fairview Park has a boat launch, and Terry Pettus Park a public float.
The name Wallingford is actually a transplant from Maine, John Wallingford, who purchased land in this area between Lake Union and Green Lake in the late 1800s, lent his name to this neighborhood. One of Wallingford’s best-known areas is Gas Works Park, with super views of Seattle and Lake Union and a favorite spot for flying kites. Children and parents alike love Meridian Playground. The Good Shepherd Center on the grounds is a historic landmark, operating as a community center.
The Queen Anne neighborhood, well known for the steep climb to the top, earned its name from the ornate houses originally populating the hill in the late 1800s. The hill’s steepness, restricting access during our infrequent snowfalls, slowed its development as a Seattle neighborhood. The elevation provides stunning views of downtown Seattle, Lake Union, and the Sound. The Seattle Center and the Space Needle is the biggest attraction in lower Queen Anne. Kinnear Park, Ward Springs Park, and Marshall Park feature jaw-dropping views of the mountains, lakes, and downtown.
If you live in these beautiful neighborhoods or close to them, you know there are downsides. Porch pirates, amongst other property crimes, continue to plague these neighborhoods. You need home insurance that protects your assets.
