Shoreline Homes for Sale 

shoreline community collegeThe City of Shoreline incorporated in 1995.  Before then, it was a large unincorporated area nine miles north of Downtown Seattle, south of Edmonds and west of Lake Forest Park.  Today Shoreline is a large suburb with over 53,000 residents, making it the 19th largest city in the state.  Over 70 percent of the homes are single-family residences.  Shoreline has developed into a location with strong neighborhoods, excellent schools and many wonderful parks.  These parks include saltwater shoreline, a botanical garden, an interurban trail, hiking trails, athletic fields, courts and playgrounds.  Shoreline is also home to Shoreline Community College, a nationally recognized local resource.  For those looking to find a home in Shorewood, there are 14 recognized neighborhoods, each with their own character.  The city began with the neighborhood of Richmond Beach on Puget Sound around 1890.  Then Shoreline was connected to Seattle & Everett by the interurban streetcar line in 1906.  Today the interurban bike trail follows this route.  The name Shoreline came from the school district name.   The “Shore” in Shoreline came from the boundaries stretching from the shores of Puget Sound to the shores of Lake Washington.  The name “line” came from the boundary stretching from the old Seattle city limit line at the south end to the Snohomish County Line on the north end.  Shoreline contracts with the King County Sheriff's Office for police services. Deputies assigned to Shoreline wear city uniforms and drive patrol cars marked with the city logo.  The city of Shoreline also contains an exclusive gated community, The Highlands, which manages its own utilities separately from Shoreline.  Some major points of interest are Hamlin Park, Kruckeberg Botanic Garden, the Shoreline Historical Museum, Shoreline Stadium and Shoreview Park.
