When you think of Barkley neighborhood in Bellingham, you think Barkley Village. Barkley Village is a 250 acre urban village that has been rapidly growing over the years, with a mix of residential, commercial and retail space. At John L Scott Real Estate Bellingham, we know this space well, as we have been tenants of Barkley for over 20 years!
So we can start by sharing what we love about working in Barkley. It’s truly a modern urban village that is just small enough that you do get to know each other. It’s a quality development with security and well maintained common areas, and a growing number of community events as well. From our office, we are walking distance to 8 different restaurants, 2 coffee shops, 2 bars, and of course Haggen grocery store. And this happens to be Haggen’s flagship store. Barkley is now developing a 2nd apartment complex, so will now have a condo building and 2 apartment complex’s as well.
The Regal Movie Theatre is also a major draw being the primary movie theatre for Whatcom County. This makes Barkley’s Mod Pizza and Zen Sushi popular destinations for movie goers grabbing a quick bite before the show. The most popular restaurant however is likely Scotty Brown’s. Scott Browns is a family friendly-social house, with a fun atmosphere with plenty of large screens for sports watching as well.
