"The name says it all"

This is the less commercial end of Green Lake, meaning more houses and less high-priced condos, and also fewer upscale cafes and eateries. But that means it's actually a neighborhood. Some of these people have grown up on the lake, and everyone takes great pride in living in such a beautiful part of Seattle.

The view is of trees in the park as much as it is of the water, and the jogging path stays well away from the street itself. But there's no escaping the summer traffic of lake drivers. That's just part of living around Green Lake: everyone wishes they were where you are.

Then again, if that's the worst complaint of your day, you're doing pretty well, don't you think?

"Beautiful lakeside homes with private beach"

These houses are on the other west side of the lake and are only about 100 feet (right across the road to be exact) from the Parks and Recreation Lakeside beach area. The sandy lake shore is a perfect place to relax on a sunny day and go kayaking, canoing, swimming, or to just sit and soak up some rays. The neighbors are friendly and there are a ton of kids in all ages to befriend. I wouldn't recommend this to singles as there's not much to do that's not family oriented.
