Area E – Snohomish County
including Everett, Marysville, Arlington, Warm Beach, Stanwood, Edmonds, Mukilteo
Also in this area is a wonderful small neighborhood called Warm Beach. It was the ‘summer home’ community for Everett and the views and beaches are great here. Lake Stevens and Lake Goodwin are the big lakes and very affordable; there are also a lot of little lakes that are fun for getaway cabins.
Everett has little or no waterfront — mostly industrial. South of Everett is Mukilteo and Edmonds, both with water view properties that are outstanding. Some of the best buys in water view are in these neighborhoods. I love Edmonds — the feel of a small town with all the amenities of a city, including wonderful restaurants, shops, and nice streets for just walking. The ferry to Kingston takes off from Edmonds.
Favorite thing about this area? Edmonds. I’d live there — as long as I had a beach cabin somewhere.
