Just south of downtown Bellevue and east of I-405 is a lovely area called Woodridge, which includes two neighborhoods—Woodridge Hill and Norwood Village. Woodridge Hill is a charming neighborhood with desirable family homes and a reputable elementary school–Woodridge Elementary. Due to this area’s elevation, some homes have amazing views of Lake Washington, Bellevue, or Seattle.
The Norwood Village neighborhood on Woodridge Hill began as a post-WWII development of view homes for veterans. These homes were uniquely designed by local architects, which is a big draw for those who love the historic architecture of this post-war period.
Another big draw for this area is that both Norwood Village and Woodridge Hill have their own community pools, providing fun activities and competitive swim teams. Residents also enjoy three parks within this community, one of which is Bannerwood Ballfield Park, if you’re a baseball fan. If schools are a priority, the nearby Bellevue schools are highly acclaimed. If you’re looking for upscale shopping and dining, Woodridge’s close proximity to downtown Bellevue can’t be beat. You’ll find many perks when choosing this quiet, well-established neighborhood!
