Stretching from Lake Sammamish to the Microsoft campus in Redmond, Northeast Bellevue is a tapestry of neighborhoods, parks and schools. Most of the neighborhoods in the western portion of Northeast Bellevue were built in the late 1960s, 1970s and 1980’s, reflecting a woodsy character in subdivision names such as Sherwood Forest, Lakewood Park, Bretton Wood, Tam O’ Shanter and Ardmore. Northeast Bellevue is home to three elementary schools; Ardmore Elementary, Sherwood Forest Elementary and Bennett Elementary, as well as, Interlake High School.
The southeastern portion of the area features two miles of frontage along Lake Sammamish, with large homes hugging the lakeside and other homes nestled in the heights above the lake, where they enjoy scenic views of lake and mountains beyond. Some of the subdivisions include private recreational facilities such as tennis courts, golf course and swim clubs. The northern, triangular portion of this neighborhood juts into Redmond. Many residents are employed by Microsoft and other high tech companies.
The future of Northeast Bellevue will be served by easy access to the Redmond light-rail station at the Microsoft campus. It will also provide close proximity to the Overlake Village, a major new urban center on the Bellevue/Redmond border.
