A Heartbeat Away from the Center of Seattle Yet a
World Away in Ambiance

In 1907 the famed Olmsted Brothers cut the ribbon on one of their most ambitious design projects to date, a community of homes meant to be as integrated with their natural woodland surroundings as the residents were with each other.

  The community feel is sustained by walking trails, play fields, tennis courts, a pool and wading pool with bathhouses, a preschool, chapel, and private access to a nearby secluded beach.

The Highlands has 102 beautiful private residences with lot sizes ranging from 0.9 acres to 9.8 acres. Homes date from 1907 to 2007, and many have been substantially remodeled and updated.

It is this sense of space and privacy that is perhaps the ultimate amenity of life in The Highlands.

Stands as One of the World’s Exceptional Neighborhoods


The Highlands shares a border with Seattle and Shoreline and lies within close proximity of the charming waterside town of Edmonds. It is an independent community with its own roads, sewage and water systems and community maintenance with Seattle underground utilities providing gas and electricity. The neighborhood is a 15-20 minute commute to downtown Seattle, via interstate, state highway and numerous surface thoroughfares.
