Somerset Community Info –
The Bellevue neighborhood of Somerset, with its iconic perch overlooking not only Bellevue surrounds, Lake Washington and Seattle—but also Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains in the distance on a clear day—is a favorite vantage point to take in panoramic views of Bellevue and Seattle. Somerset’s more than 1,200 homes were predominantly constructed in the 1960’s and 70’s. Due to its proximity to Interstate 90 and Interstate 405, Somerset provides quick and easy access to employment, entertainment, and recreation. It also benefits from having nationally recognized schools from the triangulated Bellevue, Issaquah and Renton School Districts.
Local parks include Eastgate Park, Forest Hill Neighborhood Park, Meadow Wood Park and Westwood Highlands Park. The private Somerset Recreation Club provides recreational and competitive swim and tennis programs within walking distance.
