This small residential area near View Ridge and Laurelhurst offers amazing views of Lake Washington, Downtown Seattle, the Space Needle, and the Cascade Mountains. It is charming and quiet, but in a great location for zipping to other parts of the city. There are homes with larger lots in this area and several of the streets are configured to circle around a green point in the center – University Circle NE. In fact, several streets in this neighborhood are named after college towns.
