Yesler’s sawmill turned the city into a busy town. He built the sawmill in the perfect location near Lake Washington in order to clear out the shoreline. Clear-cutting this area allowed agricultural growth and development, but it was only for a short while before the real settlement occurred. Today only remnants of the old farms and orchards can be seen with in the residential areas. In 1910, Laurelhurst became a neighborhood of Seattle. Being the neighborhood furthest away from the city, Laurelhurst used boat transportation for many years to commute to and from the city.

Sandpoint is nestled just northeast of Husky Stadium and runs north above Lake Washington to the east and is home to Children's Hospital, one of the top hospitals focusing on children in the world.
The housing in this neighborhood is predominantly single-family homes although there are quite a few small- to medium-sized apartment and condominium buildings along Sandpoint Way and in close proximity to University Village, one of Seattle's top shopping areas.
