Seattle Real Estate Spotlight: Woodway

Woodway is located just south of Edmonds along the Puget Sound. The neighborhood's stately homes are situated on large, evergreen-lined lots that offer generous outdoor space and privacy. Though incorporated as a city in 1986, it is still known as the Town of Woodway, due to its small size and quiet residential environment. Low speed limits within Woodway make it a great walking and bicycling community.

History

In 1912, developer David Whitcomb bought the land that would become Woodway Park, and envisioned it as a wooded residential area with lots no smaller than two acres. Whitcomb reserved a 60-acre lot for his own mansion, and by 1930 only one lot remained to be sold. Today, Woodway is home to just 470 homes and 1,370 residents. Several attempts at annexation to Edmonds have been proposed over the years, but residents have chosen to remain an independent city.

Points of Interest

There is no commercial activity in Woodway, which is aligned with the original intent of the town as purely a private residential community. Winding streets, low speed limits, and abundant trees make this a great area for bicycling, running, and leisurely walks. Nearby downtown Edmonds offers great local shopping and restaurants, and Edmonds waterfront park is a perfect spot to walk on the beach and watch the ferries come and go.
