Portage Bay Waterfront Real Estate

Seattle’s Portage Bay neighborhood sits at the intersection of Interstate 5 and the 520 floating bridge, just off the Lake Union/Portage Bay waterway. Truly a hidden gem, this small community is ideal for those who want to enjoy both waterside living and a short commute to downtown, the U-district, Bellevue or beyond, due to the convenient freeway access. If you’re into college football too, there may be no better spot as the University of Washington’s Husky Stadium is just a 5-minute walk away. Portage Bay itself is connected with Union Bay, the reason it’s often considered an eastern arm of Lake Union, which forms a part of the Lake Washington Ship Canal. The bay houses two yacht clubs and many houseboats, with one of the larger remaining enclaves of houseboats in the area. Floating homes and houseboats cover the majority of the shoreline, making Portage Bay waterfront real estate ideal for those who want to literally be right on the water.
