Located eight miles northeast of Downtown Seattle View Ridge has become one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in the Pacific Northwest. Bordered to the east by Sand Point Way and to the west by 40th Ave NE, View Ridge also runs from NE 65th north to NE 75.

Location, views and educational opportunities are the prime attractors to the View Ridge neighborhood. An easy bike ride to the University of Washington on the Burk-Gilman trail makes this a very desirable area for both educators and students. Easy access to 1-5 and 520 make this a popular destination for professionals commuting to downtown, as well as, the Eastside.

The quality of the local public and private schools add to the neighborhood appeal. View Ridge Elementary (k-5) is located on 50th Ave NE. Nathan Eckstein Middle School (6-8) is located on NE 75th. The Villa Academy and Assumption are highly regarded private schools (k-8) located minutes from View Ridge. View Ridge Park, Bryant Park, Magnuson Park, Sand point country club, and View Ridge swim club offer residents an array of recreational opportunities. Baseball fields, soccer fields, golfing, walking trails, dog parks, playgrounds, and swimming are just some of the activities enjoyed on a daily basis by the people of View Ridge.
