About Sudden Valley
Sudden Valley is a newer neighborhood residing in the eponymous valley on the southeastern edge of Bellingham, Washington. It sits with the Cascades to its back and its eyes on the shores of beautiful Lake Whatcom, and it is also home of the Sudden Valley Country Club, as well as Sudden Valley marina, where many mariners dock their boats for whenever they want to sail or fish on the lake.
Whether you’re looking for a home that’s finished as so many others are, or empty lots to build the home of your dreams, this is perhaps the best spot in far northwestern Washington State to choose.
What does Sudden Valley have to offer?
The options in Sudden Valley are many and varied for homes to buy. The range goes from economical and cozy small homes and condos, to large, spacious, luxurious log homes that can have price tags of $1,000,000 or more, as well as many foreclosed homes that are available.
Many of the cheaper $40-90,000 homes and condos are very small with only 1 bed and 1 bathroom, which are still great homes for singles that don’t need too much. $100-250,000 homes are among the older homes(roughly 25 years old), and usually have two or three Bedrooms and 1-2 Baths with medium-size rooms, dens or office space, and great views of the Lake and Golf course, a perfect choice for couples and families who are on a budget.
From there on all the way up to the million dollar homes, which are generally closer to the Golf Course, the houses are much more luxurious, with 3-6 Bedrooms, 2.5-6 baths, and a whole lot of storage space.
These are often newer custom-built homes with many amenities, such as numerous skylights and windows to look out on, walk-in closets in the master suites, large 2 and 3-car garages, gourmet kitchens that often come furnished, and a few homes even have heated floors for those cold, rainy Washington winters. Just about every home has a great view of the Lake and the Golf Course, and that’s scene you will never get tired of.
