Developed since the 1960’s and 1970’s, there are many styles and sizes of homes for residents to choose from—many of them oriented toward breathtaking hilltop views of Bellingham Bay and the city. Whether you’re looking for a sprawling older family home in a quiet cul-de-sac or a comfortable studio on a wide street, Alabama Hill offers homes to fit any lifestyle and price range.
Alabama Hill residents enjoy a vast array of recreational opportunities just outside their front door. On the west side of Lake Whatcom, Bloedel-Donovan Park is a great place for leisurely strolls any time of year, and the park is a popular spot for sun-seekers and kayakers on lazy summer days. A scenic pedestrian bridge over Alabama Street gives easy access to the trails of Whatcom Falls Park, where the cool woods and soothing rush of water soon make visitors forget the bustling streets nearby. Big Rock Garden Park boasts unique outdoor sculptures and a variety of well-landscaped exotic and native plants. For kids, St. Clair Park and Highland Heights Park are favorite destinations.
Elementary students attend Roosevelt Elementary School, while teenagers attend Kulshan Middle School and either Bellingham High School or Squalicum High School.
Conveniently located just minutes from shopping in Downtown, the Guide Meridian, and Barkley Village, Alabama Hill is a serene getaway that’s not too far away.
