Edgemoor boasts some of the finest living in Washington. Located in the southernmost area of Bellingham, most homes have a view of sparkling Bellingham Bay and the San Juan Islands.
Fairhaven Middle School, built as a high school in 1903, welcomes you to the neighborhood with its noble, grand charm. It is one of the best middle schools in the district, and its well-landscaped lawn give you a taste of the rest of the Edgemoor neighborhood.
Much of the neighborhood lies on Chuckanut Drive, arguably the most beautiful road in the state. (Try to be the car passenger, since the road is windy and the cliffs on the edge make it important to be focused.) Built before I-5, it is still a lovely alternative to driving from Bellingham to Skagit County. On the way, you will discover restaurants, shops, hikes, and beaches.
Many of these beaches are directly in the Edgemoor neighborhood. One particularly notable spot is Clark’s Point. Here, hikers can get an incredible view of the San Juan Islands and the Canadian Cascades or take a stroll to the small beaches below. One short trail leads to the Chuckanut Creek Estuary. Both the forest and tidelands are protected, promising decades more of accessible, healthy nature.
A few miles south of Edgemoor, Chuckanut Drive will take you directly into Larrabee State Park. This 2,683-acre park features overnight camping, nearly two miles of coastal beach, 15 miles of hiking trails, 13 miles of biking trails, picnic areas, an amphitheater, and much more. Visitors enjoy watching the sunset over the San Juan Islands, exploring tidepools, lying on the beach, and taking in the untainted, majestic beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
The 2,000 residents of Edgemoor love the nature that surrounds them, and they make this evident through their homes. Though house sizes vary, lots are typically large and well-maintained. Developers do not simply chop down trees and put up houses in Edgemoor. Instead, homes are planned carefully and built solidly.
In addition to the magnificent views and natural setting, Edgemoor residents enjoy the solitude and extremely low crime rate of their neighborhood. Homeowners in this area experience the peace of rural living while being mere minutes away from Historic Fairhaven, where they can buy groceries, peruse local shops, and eat dinner at one of the many restaurants in the area.
