One of Bellingham Washington’s oldest core neighborhoods that surround downtown is Columbia Neighborhood. Columbia offers tree-lined streets with character homes showing pride of ownership. With walking distance to several parks, the fountain district, as well as close to downtown and the waterfront, Columbia is considered one of the premier neighborhoods in Bellingham. The majority of the neighborhood is single-family homes with most homes on city lots in the 5,000 to 6,000 square foot lot range.
Due to the zoning and lack of new development in this location, supply and demand has created strong appreciation in Columbia over the years. Thus, in hot markets like now, it is very common to find mulitple offers on many of the Columbia neighborhood listings.
The premier park in Columbia neighborhood is Elizabeth Park, which is home to concerts in the park in the summer and several other community events.
