Town of Hunts Point
Town located on the Eastside, a region of King County, Washington, United States, and part of the Seattle metropolitan area. The town is located on a small peninsula surrounded by Lake Washington, and is near the suburbs of Medina (to the southwest), Clyde Hill (to the south), Yarrow Point (on another peninsula to the east), and Kirkland (to the northeast), as well as the city of Bellevue (to the east). Hunts Point was officially incorporated on August 22, 1955
Residents relish the sylvan nature and the privacy that comes with living in an urban forest. They also enjoy unsurpassed access to Lake Washington and the activities and vistas that waterfront living offer. As a testimony to their excellent stewardship has earned the designation of Tree City USA from the National Arbor Foundation since 1991.
Hunts Point was named after Leigh S. J. Hunt, who owned the Seattle Post Intelligencer in the late 1800’s. While Mr. Hunt never lived on Hunts Point, he once owned property at its very tip.
This is is one of the smallest municipalities in Western Washington, yet its bucolic feel and proximity to Seattle and the Eastside help make it a highly desirable place to live.
