Forest Hills Condo Shoreline WA
Forest Hills is one of those well-maintained well-built 1970s condos that is still very attractive, especially at today’s lower prices! It has 100 one and two bedroom units in several buildings that wind down a slope. There are fantastic Cascade mountain, Lake Washington, and territorial views looking over the treetops of Lake Forest Park. Some units are townhouses, but most are flats. Many have private 2 car garages with extra space for storage or workshops. Originally built as a 55+ community, it was clearly built with downsizers in mind! Recently the association shed its age restriction, making the units more marketable. Amenities include an outdoor pool, putting green, tennis court, clubhouse and RV parking area.
That latest sales at this point were in late 2008. Two 2 bedroom units with minimal views sold around at around $260,000, or $100 per sf. Not bad for almost in-city real estate!
What’s unique about these condos is their walkability, Forest Hills has a walkscore.com rating of 77 because the complex is just a block from the new revitalized North City neighborhood in Shoreline. Bus transportation is very good too.
