So, it seems that we are moving very quickly from central Canada to Settle in a move or so!
We have two little ones (2 and 5) and will be looking (very quickly!!) for a family friendly neighborhood within a relatively reasonable commute to South Lake Union. We're willing to trade off a little extra commute time for a fantastic area. Here are a few that have been mentioned to us - any thoughts on the commute, family friendliness, schools, etc?
My husband will be using public transport - we've wanted to switch to that for years but our city's transit system is terrible. He hates driving the commute everyday, and could get a lot of extra work done if he could take public transport of some sort.
- Bainbridge or Mercer islands - we LOVE the idea of an island home but don't know about the feasibility of it.
- 145th and Aurora - there is a house near there with all of the amenities we'd like but don't know anything about the area
- the Eastside - maybe the 'burbs are the best way to go for us?
Obviously, we're exploring all of our options at this point! And are totally open to suggestions. We're feeling a little overwhelmed and since this is a big move with little people, there a lot more importance on the home we choose.
