Hunters Glen is one of the most upscale estate neighborhoods to offer the best of all possible worlds. It is less than 10 minutes from the downtown center of Redmond and the 520 freeway, but it has the feeling that you are miles away in the country. Served by two main entrances off of Union Hill Road, the expansive, meandering streets splayed with acre-plus home sites and the seemingly endless miles of emerald green lawns surrounded by tall cedars give you the feeling that you have room to breathe and stretch out. The homes offer a distinguished estate presence not replicated in today’s new construction neighborhoods.
Hunters Glen is another exceptional Eastside community built by John Buchan in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. Although brothers John and William Buchan run separate companies, they both enjoy a fabulous reputation for being quality home builders with great attention to detail. Homeowners who are lucky enough to live in a Buchan neighborhood have experienced a great deal of appreciation in their home’s value over the years.
With slightly over 100 homes, Hunters Glen takes pride in the community spirit this neighborhood has to offer. Governed by the association’s CC&R’s, homeowners know their home’s value is protected by the guidelines laid out in these bylaws. That is not to say that homeowners do not have control over what they do with their homes. The guidelines are there for them to follow when making changes and additions. Neighborhoods with CC&R’s tend to have higher property values and attract homeowners who like that assurance. The homes in Hunters Glen range in size from 2700 to 5000+ square feet. These beautiful homes offer such amenities as 3-5 bedrooms, beautiful wood-paneled studies, dual staircases, and bonus and media rooms. You’ll find such fine details as wood-beamed ceilings, coffered and cove ceilings with crown moldings, hardwood floors and masonry fireplaces with brick and marble surrounds.
Hunters Glen has more to offer than beautiful homes on estate-sized lots, community spirit and a convenient location. It also has a neighborhood trail system that transects the area. In addition, the neighborhood is served by the Lake Washington School District and the highly acclaimed Emily Dickinson Elementary School. Emily Dickinson is the sister school to Laura Ingalls Wilder Elementary, and enjoys the same wonderful reputation and parent-teacher involvement. Evergreen Junior High is located adjacent to the elementary school, and Eastlake High School is located on the Sammamish Plateau.
