"So quiet and green, you forget you live near a city"

East Alder Street off of Lake Washington Blvd. winds through the trees, providing seclusion and peacefulness so you almost forget that there's a big city just over the hill. While there is no swimming in Lake Washington, the views it offers are nice, though I personally prefer sunsets over the water rather than sunrises. There are only a few homes nestled in among the huge trees on East Alder, but they're very well maintained. There's actually a bit of a stretch on the north side of the street that consists solely of huge leafy and evergreen trees, giving that much more of a sense of solitude.

While there are other routes to Lake Washington Blvd from Madrona and Cherry Hill, East Alder does provide one of the nicest drives, so the street can see more than just residential traffic. While it is a curvy road, it still doesn't take that long to drive to downtown, though Seattle Metro does have a few stops on this street, so residents can leave the car at home and not have to battle downtown traffic and parking.

There's a marina at the end of the road for residents with boats, making it a short walk from home to sailing or power boating and water sports.
