Marvelously situated just 25 miles from Seattle, Duvall homes for sale are wonderful investments. You'll be buying into a small city on the Snoqualmie River that offers the best of the Puget Sound. Set amidst rugged mountains and a vast network of biking and hiking trails, Duvall is a beautiful location. The time you take looking at Duvall homes for sale will be well worth it!

With its young, affluent, and extremely well-educated population of about 4,600, the city is also a great place to live. Its low crime rate puts even New England towns in the Berkshires to shame, and the commute to Seattle averages only 35 minutes. Also, with the Pacific coastline less than two hours away, and the Cascade Mountains less than an hour east, there are plenty of outdoor attractions and recreational opportunities.

The Pacific Northwest lifestyle is decidedly active, the doom and gloom about the admitted lack of balance between sunshine and gray drizzle aside. From whitewater rafting in Skykomish and the Nooksack, hiking in Olympia National Park, or touring local wineries, you'll never run short of things to do. Skiing in the Cascades goes without saying, as does boating on Lake Washington and the Puget Sound itself. This part of the world truly is, as explorer William Clark wrote President Jefferson 200 years ago, "the grandest and most pleasing prospect."

About Duvall Homes for Sale

The median house value of Duvall properties, according to the most recent federal census data estimated forward, runs about $250,000. Translated into the average market price of Duvall homes for sale today, that works to about $350,000 for a three bedroom single-family house. The majority of these roughly 1,600 homes were, of course, built in the last 30 or so years. Some, however, date back to Duvall's mid-19th-century logging days. You won't regret calling one of them home!
