What do you get when you cross nostalgic charm with forward thinking? When you merge an appreciation for nature with technological advancement? When you combine small town comforts with big city amenities? You get the vibe of the Wilburton neighborhood in Bellevue, Washington. Wilburton, one of the most mature and distinct neighborhoods in the area, is the closest neighborhood in proximity to downtown Bellevue, east of the 405.
What began many moons ago as a small logging community of around 400 people has evolved to a population of more than six thousand residents spanning 2.601 square miles. Yesteryear is marked by the historic wooden train trestle and historic landmarks, while modern conveniences such as restaurants, shops, and recreation pepper the neighborhood.
The community is bedecked with hundred-year-old houses, mid-century architecture, and new construction. Single family homes intertwine with condominiums, all within walking distance or a short drive from big box stores, specialty boutiques, upscale shops, and an array of retail options.
With a strong appreciation for nature, Wilburton showcases more than 300 acres of open space through its three major parks, including Kelsey Creek Park, Wilburton Hill Park, and Bellevue Botanical Garden, known for its Holiday d’Lights display.
Wilburton is also host to the Highland Community Center as well as the Bellevue Aquatic Center.
Back in 1904, Hewitt-Lea Logging Company eye-spied Wilburton as a great local for its logging company. But in the here and now, while maintaining its wooded enchantments, Wilburton has become an ideal place to call home. Wilburton has juxtaposed urban and rural lifestyles, rich in history and charm.
