Perched above Bellingham Bay, between the historic Fairhaven district and downtown Bellingham is the South Hill neighborhood. The slope of the hill provides incredible bay, island and even city views from most homes in this neighborhood. From here you are walking distance to not only downtown Bellingham and Fairhaven, but also Western Washington University and Boulevard Park, which is one of the most popular waterfront parks in Bellingham.
Home styles in this neighborhood range from turn of the century craftsman, to stunning new construction. Home prices in South Hill are amongst the highest in Bellingham due to the location, views and incredible pride of ownership displayed throughout the neighborhood.
Best Features of South Hill:
-Bay and city views from most properties.
-Incredible walkability to Fairhaven, Boulevard Park, trails, parks, WWU & downtown.
-Beautiful homes and exceptional pride of ownership from different eras on oversized lots.
-Sought after excellent schools.
-Affordability is an issue. This is one of the most expensive neighborhoods in Bellingham for dollar per square foot.
-Many lots are terraced/sloping, so harder to find flatter lots if that is a preference.
-For buyers preferring more modern/newer homes, there are very few available, as most homes are turn of the century era.
