Tumwater Hill Homes for Sale
Tumwater Hill is located at the north end of Tumwater and is notably visible as you drive south on I-5 through Olympia, with Tumwater Falls to the south and Capitol Lake to the north. From atop Tumwater Hill you can see far beyond those two scenic landmarks though. In fact, the panoramic view from the east side of Tumwater Hill features Mt. Rainier, the Puget Sound, and Olympia’s iconic capitol dome.
With such abundant scenery so close at hand, it is no wonder that Tumwater Hill is one of the most desirable locations in the area when it comes to finding a home. Much of the lower elevations of Tumwater Hill feature older classic homes, some with amazing views. As you travel further up the hill you find an increasing amount of new construction, with neighborhoods like Skyline Ridge and Somerset Hill offering homes from the low $200,000′s to over $500,000. There is a variety of construction styles too, with some traditional architecture and some modern-style rooftop deck row homes. The common feature of all of these homes though is the breathtaking view.
