"Very green and beautiful neighborhood"
South 124th Street in Burien has so many trees, it's almost hard to see the houses that line the road. Residents are within walking distance of the large Arbor Lake Park and a short driving distance to the even larger Seahurst and Salmon Creek parks, which offer beach access. The street is lined with trees providing shade in the summer and protection from the rain in the winter, spring, fall and summer months (I mean, we're still in Seattle!) The curve of the road and its seclusion from the main sections of the city provide privacy and very little traffic. The street isn't used as a thoroughfare for any except residents, making it a safe place for kids to play (though not IN the street!) Home prices are very reasonable for the area, and residents have a quick 20-minute drive to downtown Seattle. Highway 509 offers quick access to Interstate 5 both north and southbound and Interstate 405 to the eastside. The downtown and shopping areas of Burien are closeby, as well as several small parks, schools, hospitals, restaurants and grocery stores.
