In today’s world, Harbour Pointe in Mukilteo is a little bit Mayberry.
Harbour Pointe in Mukilteo brings me back to the neighborhoods I grew up in—there’s walking trails, you see kids playing together in the streets, you see friends out walking their dogs, and there’s just a general sense of a tight-knit community.
Harbour Pointe has a variety of abodes for all budgets. From small starter homes or condos to big, beautiful estates with Puget Sound views and access to stunning golf courses. Harbour Point is the place to live if you want good schools, a tight community, or the ability to send the kids to the neighbors without concern. It’s a little piece of nostalgic Americana in today’s hectic world.
Explore the Crown Park Neighborhood
One of the newest neighborhoods to provide large homes with modern designs is known as Crown Park. Crown Park began construction in 2006 and finished up in 2010. This is a wonderful neighborhood bordered by a robust, beautiful greenbelt.
Homes here range in size from 2500 sq. ft. on the small side to over 4200 sq. ft. for the larger homes. The largest homes are located off the greenbelt to the west of the neighborhood. These homes are located on Eagles Nest and have large basements which are perfect for a kids den, man cave, or a theater. The basements also typically provide a spare bedroom and bathroom. Homes in this neighborhood range from $650K-$750K. For that, you’ll be treated to wonderful parks, wide streets and sidewalks, plus a beautiful play ground near for the little ones.

What Crown Park Residents LOVE About Their Neighborhood:
“Harbour Pointe Blvd is beautiful and pedestrian friendly. Especially on a nice day, you will see many kids riding bikes, and people out walking. My 12-year old daughter and her friend ride their bikes to Endeavor Elementary school for volleyball practice. It makes me happy that they can do things like that. I’m fortunate to have so many wonderful neighbors that help each each other out.”
“All three schools are located in the neighborhood, making it easy for kids to walk to school or be dropped off quickly.”
“There’s even little community hang-outs like Grouchy Chef or the Scotsman Bistro/Wine bar. (Tip: DO NOT go to the Grouchy Chef unless you are willing to follow his rules… Also make a reservation. You’ll be glad you did. The food is very good!)”
“I love love that I’m just 15-20 minutes up the hill from Old Town, Mukilteo Beach, Lighthouse Park & Ferries. On a nice day, after work I would stop by QFC, grab some sandwiches, swing by the house for a quick change and take my family down to the beach for dinner. The views and sunsets are gorgeous. Great restaurants like Arnie’s, Diamond Knotts, Ivars and John’s Grill where you will find the best crab cakes.”
“Convenient to I-405, I-5 and Hwy 99.”
Explore the One Club House Lane Neighborhood
Another of my favorite neighborhoods in Harbour Pointe is One Club House Lane. If you want to live here, then be prepared to spend some money, especially if you want the views of Puget Sound. I love the development because of the rolling hills, wide streets and sidewalks, and the mature landscape.
In my opinion, the upper portion of One Club House is the place to be. The homes are designed by William Buchan and built in the early to late 90s. All of the homes have grand entrances, hipped roofs and details that show the builder cared for more than just profit. The lower side of One Club House is still nice, but the homes are usually more value oriented.
Homes in upper Club House hover around $800K-$1,100K. Oh—did I mention this neighborhood is on a golf course? Must of slipped my mind! Many of the neighborhoods are on the golf course.

I’ve seen battered homes as a result of an overconfident golfer attempting shortcuts across the neighborhood.
These are just two of many fantastic neighborhoods in Harbour Pointe. I should also mention that the commute to Seattle during traffic is about 45-60 minutes if traffic is really bad. If you work at Boeing, then your commute is FANTASTICALLY short! It’s also a much shorter commute if you work at Amazon, Tableau, or UW. Anything on the north side of downtown gets out of the downtown bottleneck that can add 10-15 minutes to your commute alone.
