 Yes, you heard me correctly.  Mountlake Terrace, WA is revitalizing their downtown.  I bet most of you didn't even know there was a downtown.  Or there are some of you that have been there and laugh, thinking to yourselves "They call that a downtown!"  Yes, as a resident here in Mountlake Terrace, the latter expressed my opinion.  But with reasonable home prices and and easy commuting to Seattle, it is a great choice to buy a home.  Commuting will get even better with the new Transit Station that is currently being built and is set to finish in the first quarter of 2009.  The Mountlake Terrace Transit Station will have a four-story, five level parking garage with a capacity of 660 cars.  The parking garage is being constructed on the lower portion of the old Park & Ride along I-5.  The...

Mountlake Terrace is a great Seattle Suburb if you are looking for big parks and great city facilities!  The Mountlake Terrace library is one of the wonderful Seattle Suburb Sno-Isle Regional libraries.  Check out DVDs, CDs, books, etc., and the children's reading section at this library is loaded with books, tables for reading, computers, and even a rocking chair for the schedules story times. I love the convenient online ordering system, too -  you can order anything in the entire system to be picked up at your local library.  Go through their catalog and order as much as you want - they call to tell you that the items are at the building for pick up and will hold them for a few days if it isn't convenient to pick them all up right away. Returns are easy!  There is also a really easy ...

Seattle suburb Mountlake Terrace has a lot going for it, but did you know that it also has a state of the art swimming facility????People literally drive from miles and miles to come swim in this city pool!  The city of Mountlake Terrace completely remodeled their Recreation Pavilion to make this one of the area's cheapest and best attractions!  The Mountlake Terrace swimming facility is spectacular with many different areas to swim in including lap swim areas, children play areas, hot tub, and a lazy flowing "river" area complete with current just to name a few. In addition to the pool facilities, the Pavilion houses a gym, dancing studio, playgrounds, etc.  Buying a house in Mountlake Terrace really pays off in perks!Courtney Cooper ....For all your Seattle Washington Real Estate Need...

Seattle is known for its great coffee, but living in or around Mountlake Terrace has its perks!!!!  I have had lots of coffee around Seattle and my very favorite is still Chad & Vicky's Espresso in Mountlake Terrace, WA.  Mountlake Terrace and Brier residents have a real treat in this coffee shop located in the most unlikely spot!  Chad & Vicky's Espresso is located on the corner of 228th St SW and Cedar Way INSIDE the Chevron!  They also have an amazing Drive-thru on the south side of the Chevron which I am not ashamed to say I frequent at least once a day!Chad & Vicky's Espresso is a small town and big service operation and it seems big brother has taken note!  Starbucks has decided to move in RIGHT next door.  Chad literally stands in the shadow of the giant Starbucks sign as he serv...

Raining and pouring...Mountlake Terrace Washington just had the first snow of the year, but temps went up and the rain started pouring!  The snow melted and combined with the rain is just too much for the storm system to handle all at once.  Rivers and waterways in the area are over capacity and running into the streets causing road closures.Make sure and observe the road closures and stay safe.  If you see a storm drain blocked in front of your house, take the time and clear it so that the water can run unobstructed off the road ways.  The city is having a hard time keeping up, but all the water should be cleared soon. Stay safe out there!Courtney Cooper ....For all your Seattle Washington Real Estate Needs! Seattle Area Real Estate Agent: Associate Broker and Realtor serving North Kin...

Mountlake Terrace, Wa Park and Ride to close temporarily during renovation starting December 15th!  Thinking about buying a house in this Seattle suburb? There are amazing things happening with the Mountlake Terrace Park in Ride..Construction will begin on a new four story five level parking facility in the lower level of the current Park N Ride.  The upper lot will also be renovated to add additional parking as well.  The result will be a capacity for 890 cars which is about double of what the two lots together can take currently.  The parking structure is set to be completed in the first quarter of 2009 and then shortly after that even bigger improvements will happen.  Construction will then take place to complete a state of the art transit island in the median of I-5 with a bridge ac...

Safety is vital and the trails around our schools are brilliant!    Trails are great for fitness and casual walks, but also vital to the students using them to get to and from school!    Some recent events - The Edmonds School District recently temporarily closed the walking trail behind Mountlake Terrace High School between the school and Castle Crest 2.  The trail is a vital transportation route for many students who live in both Brier and Mountlake Terrace and keeps them off busier streets.  Apparently there were complaints and some concern expressed over the lack of supervision for students in these areas and whether or not the trails were being properly used. Angry parents of students unable to walk to school were told that the City of Brier was responsible for closing the gates an...
