I've heard alot of complaints recently about my message when they call me and get my voice mail. I tell everyone on my voice mail that it's a beautiful day in Seattle! To me it is always a beautiful day in Seattle. Although we don't get sunshine as much as we like, we DON'T have smog! The rain keeps everything nice and clean and when the sun does come out, it is just GORGEOUS! I currently live in the Lakemont area of Bellevue and Issaquah and it's been fun discovering this hillside. Cougar Mountain is what this hill is known as and thank God, I haven't seen any real cougars in my neighborhood. There are cougars running on the concrete walls on Cougar Mountain Way, though.
Homes in this community runs from quaint to mansions. It's been sad to see the hillside turn to more homes but there are places that the large parcels are remaining such. Long time residents have a tough time seeing their forested backyards disappear. But it's hard to prevent progress because new residents love the views from the hillside. Alot of custom homes are being built as well spot speculative homes.
Stay tune for more tidbits about Cougar Mountain and other neighborhoods in the Lakemont area of Bellevue and Issaquah.
