Located in the middle of East Bellevue, the 1960’s Lake Hills community is one of the oldest areas of West East Bellevue.
Originally populated by Boeing engineers attracted by the ‘then spectacular views’ and new design of the 1960s homes, the area is now largely populated by a younger generation of young professionals often with school-age children. And those sapling trees planted over a half-century ago have matured to largely obscure the yester-year views of Lake Washington.
One thing hasn’t changed however, and that is the proximity to freeway transportation that the centrally located area once offered to Boeing engineers, and now presents for the technology-driven jobs in the area.
But, don’t get me wrong… there’s still a subculture of those famous engineers alive and well in the area.
