Exceptional Homes In Willow Creek - Snohomish, Washington

Willow Creek in Snohomish, WA

Just off Cathcart Way with easy access to Highway 9, the Willow Creek neighborhood approximately five miles east of Mill Creek offers upscale living without the high price tag.  The slightly sloped land layout provides several houses in Willow Creek with mountain views, while many others are backed by greenbelts.  The neighborhood has a suburban feel, but is still close to amenities.

Willow Creek in Snohomish, WAThe 176 homes in Willow Creek were built between 2003 and 2005.  House sizes range from approximately 2,200 square feet to over 3,300 square feet, and the lots are larger than most newer construction in the area, averaging around 8,000 square feet.  Over the last year, selling prices for houses in Willow Creek have ranged from the mid $300's to the upper $400's, although short sales in the neighborhood are putting downward pressure on prices.

Adjacent to Willow Creek is Willis Tucker Park, an 84-acre park with an activity center, amphitheater, baseball fields, basketball court, 4.5 acre off-leash dog area, picnic shelters, playground, water park, and walking trails.  During the summer, the park hosts a movie night at the amphitheater each week.  On sunny summer days, you'll find the water park and the playground buzzing with children.  If you have a dog, the off-leash dog park is the best in the area.  There's even a "shy dog" area separated from the main dog park for dogs that are bit more timid.

Willow Creek is bordered by Cathcart Way on the north, Gold Creek and Willis Tucker Park on the west, MonteVista neighborhood on the east, and City Farms undeveloped land on the south.  Willow Creek is also walking distance from the new Glacier Peak High School, Valley View Middle School, and Little Cedars Elementary School.
