Incorporated as an independent city in 1999, Sammamish is situated high on the plateau to the east of Lake Sammamish. Like its neighbors on the Plateau, Issaquah to the south and Redmond to the north, this area has experienced explosive residential development.
This suburban neighborhood consists of homes developed in the 1970s and 1980s as well as a large number of newer residential homes and planned communities. As you would expect based on when this area was developed there are no vintage homes or classic apartment properties to speak of. There are a few newer, low- or mid-rise apartment and condominium properties that offer apartment living in this area. These buildings are generally located in the pocket commercial cores that exist in Sammamish on the Plateau.
The majority of the rental opportunities exist with the large number of private homes in this area. Many choose this area for its family-friendly environment, quality schools and the ability to get more home for your money. If you are willing to trade off more difficult access to Bellevue and Downtown Seattle, Sammamish can be a great place to call home.
