Rising on a hillside above the shores of Lake Washington, Inverness Park is a hidden jewel of a neighborhood. First developed in the 1950s, nearly every home is custom-built, and the result is that each property displays unique architecture from the last six decades. Wide curving tree-lined streets, underground wiring and large lots provide the perfect framework to tie together these diverse properties.
Located adjacent to the Sand Point Country Club and Golf Course, Inverness provides seamless access to the 18-hole course and clubhouse facilities. For additional recreation, the neighborhood is located within the boundaries for membership eligibility to the View Ridge Swim and Tennis Club.
One great feature of the neighborhood is its access point to the Burke-Gilman Trail. The trail consists of 18 miles of paved biking/walking surface with views of Lake Washington. It provides quick off-road access from the neighborhood to nearby Matthews Beach or a less than three-mile ride to shopping and dining at popular University Village.
Inverness is known for its quiet, family-oriented atmosphere, but is conveniently located to stores and services so you can spend more time living and less time driving.
