In September of 2012, a small community in Greater Seattle’s Eastside garnered some big attention. The community, Clyde Hill, was featured by Coldwell Banker in a national story on “Best Places to Live for Suburbanites.” The article profiled 11 cities across the U.S. that embody the quality of life most sought by those living in the suburbs. The cities were judged based on percentage of home ownership, quality of schools, and access to important amenities such as gas stations and grocery stores. Clyde Hill ranked very high in all 3 categories.

Over 89% of its residents own their homes, its public schools are among the best in the nation, and there are a whopping 1,026 and counting amenities nearby. The story captured some aspects of what make Clyde Hill a wonderful place to live, but as residents will tell you, there is a lot more to it than that. From beautiful views of the mountains and water to almost instantaneous access to downtown Bellevue, Clyde Hill is one of the Eastside’s most sought-after zip codes.

A meandering drive through Medina showcases the best of what the community has to offer. Although mainly residential, nearly a quarter of the community is green space, in the form of parks and a golf course. Driving along, vast estates are visible from the road, some tucked quietly down winding driveways and others proudly displayed by the lapping shores of the lake. Indeed, many of the best waterfront homes in the Eastside are located in Medina. The views from these homes are incredible. In the morning, early-risers are treated to splashes of pink and orange as the rising sun reflects off the water. Mountains shine white with snow in the distance and there is a peace to all that the eye can see.

But some people are not content with simply seeing, and for that reason many of the lakeside homes in Media offer docks for swimming, kayaking, and canoeing. In the summer, these docks become the perfect place to entertain friends or clients. And on starry nights, they provide the ideal spot for enjoying a glass of wine or watching a meteor shower. The peacefulness and calmness of Medina are almost tactile they are so real. But don’t let the peacefulness fool you into thinking it is only a place for relaxing. Because within the 1.4 square miles of Medina are some of the most brilliant and creative minds in the world, including Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates.

More than 98% of Medina’s 3,000 residents are employed in white collar jobs. It is a city of managers and executives. It is also one of the most educated communities in America, where over 78% of adults have a college or other advanced degree. For many residents, education and success have gone hand in hand. And that success has been reflected in wealth. Medina has the 3rd highest per-capita income in Washington and the 49th highest in the U.S.

Residents of Medina could live anywhere in the world. But they have chosen to live on the shores of Lake Washington, partly because it is close to everything they could ever need. They enjoy one of the shortest daily commutes when compared to the rest of the country, on average spending only 18 minutes getting to work every day. Because of the city’s proximity to SR 520, residents of Medina have the world at their fingertips. With only a five mile drive, they can be steeped in the sophisticated urban glamour of Bellevue, enjoy an eclectic afternoon in one of Seattle’s quirky neighborhoods, or be transported back in time at the Mercer Slough Nature Park. Medina is also a great stepping off point for fabulous weekend adventures along the I-5 corridor. And if you’d rather fly than drive, even the international airport is only a hop, skip, and a jump away.

Waterfront

For some, the call to live life at water's edge is undeniable: The sunshine reflecting upon the water’s surface, boats or ferries passing by, birds soaring overhead, the glimmer of a wavy sunset. From boating and beachcombing to kayaking and birdwatching—find these activities along the shoreline....
