The Sammamish Plateau appears to be a peaceful, forested retreat just minutes from Bellevue, Redmond and Seattle.
Home values have remained relatively stable over the past year.
Some parts of the Plateau look like a scenic country drive dotted with large estates and farm-style homes on acreage with horses, and many residents report seeing deer, raccoons, bobcats, and even the occasional bear.
Residents say it is the amenities that set the area apart and make it a unique place to live.
There is a skateboard park, climbing wall and basketball court just across the parking lot as part of the Sammamish Commons, a 30-acre site owned by the city that also includes wetlands and hiking trails.
The Sammamish Plateau is high, reaching an elevation of 615 feet at its highest point.
Known for its world-class golf courses, including Sahalee and Aldarra, the Sammamish Plateau also has attracted acclaim for its livability and schools.
