Located on a plateau in King County, Washington, Sammamish is bordered by Lake Sammamish to the west and the Snoqualmie Valley to the east. Beaver Lake and Pine Lake are the two biggest lakes in the area. The vision for the city describes Sammamish as a vibrant bedroom community blessed with a well-preserved natural environment, a family-friendly, kid-safe culture, and unrivaled connectedness. Sammamish captures the best of the past even as it embraces a burgeoning digital future and meets housing affordability through balanced, sustainable housing. It is a state-of-the art community that is engaged, responsive, and generous. Add to this the numerous natural resources the city possesses, such as the Beaver Lake Park, the Beaver Lake Preserve, the Big Rock Park, and the East Sammamish Park to mention but a few. Golfing is a characteristic form of recreation here featuring the 27-hole Sahalee Country Club and the 18-hole golf courses The Plateau Club as well as the Aldarra Golf Club. Well-known builders like Toll Brothers, Quadrant Homes, and Conner Homes all agree that it is worth investing in the city and have, therefore, established no less than seven new green communities in Sammamish for you to choose from. By owning a net-zero energy home, a necessary concomitant is the reduced monthly utility bills as well as maintenance costs due to your green home having been built to conserve energy and water, improve indoor air quality, and generally produce less waste. Look for the ENERGY STAR approval that guarantees that the strict energy efficiency specifications are being upheld by independent inspection and testing. You couldn’t do more for the environment, and you don’t need to.
