Juanita is an area on the "north Eastside" of Lake Washington. On December 2009, its annexation to Kirkland was approved by voters. Situated just North of downtown Kirkland, Juanita has become a magnet for many looking for the right balance of accessibility, open spaces, waterfront, and amenities. Known for its generous spaces, paddling boarding, volleyball and great views, Juanita Beach Park (see photo to the right) is a perennial favorite for many throughout the warmers months. The park underwent a major rejuvenation in 2011 and boasts usable space for a whole variety of activities for families and those looking to get outside.
The Village at Juanita (new circa 2006) offers a nice mix of activities, dining, and overall functionality. This commercial and residential hub features sleek new apartments set atop smaller shops and restaurants, with modern landscaping and generous sidewalks. You can choose from Thai, Greek, Mongolian, or Italian restaurants, just to name a few. Some people choose to get a frozen yogurt or Starbucks and stroll around or walk over to Juanita Beach.
The local Farmer’s Market, held May-October at Juanita Beach Park is another favorite for many. Local fruits, flowers, vegetables, candies and crafts make Friday evenings at the park a must.
If a pint and Seahawks game is more your thing, check out Juanita Pub just off of 120th Place. If you’re looking for fine dining, make a reservation at Juanita Café’. Carved out of an unassuming building nestled next to Juanita Creek, this establishment is widely recognized as offering only top-notch dining.
Because of all Juanita has to offer, it is little wonder that Juanita homes have increased dramatically of the past several years. The recession years notwithstanding, homes closer to or with views of the water, or in newer developments, have seen dramatic increases in prices. Still, there are many great Juanita neighborhoods that are absolutely within reach for well under 400k. Condos along the water are certainly in demand, which makes their time on market at a reasonable price short-lived.
Housing options in and around Juanita are unquestionably varied. Sleeks apartments for lease, cliff-hangers on Goat Hill, waterfront condos, lakefront property, or a 1970s split-level are all available within the 1mile radius. Homes for sale in Juanita are arguably a testament the area is attractive for many. Simply put, Juanita homes are not all the same. There is a divergence of feels, settings, and lifestyles all different yet all close together.
