First settled in 1882, a 160-acre tract was claimed by Patrick Downey. He logged his homestead, then farmed the land and eventually in 1894, subdivided eighty acres on the north side of his claim. Being further inland than the surrounding waterfront communities of Medina, Hunts Point and Yarrow Point, Clyde Hill was slower to be populated and remained in farming use longer.
Clyde Hill incorporated in 1953 to better control land use development, and like its neighboring cities, has restricted virtually all commercial development. With the advent of the Lake Washington Bridges, population grew rapidly and the period of 1960 to 1970 experienced a 59% increase in residents.
More recently, newcomers to Clyde Hill have increasingly removed old residences and replaced them with much larger homes. In 2007, some 19 new structures were built. Views of Lake Washington are highly valued and these homes command significant premiums.
Clyde Hill counted a population of 2,984 as of 2010, is the 4th most affluent area in the state, and bears a cost of living 178.1% higher than the U. S. average.
Local drivers are careful not to exceed speed limits, for safety agencies have long maintained a reputation of strict speed limit enforcement --- over the limit risks a ticket.
The silver lining is that along with spectacular views and a Tully’s Coffee shop, the freeway is only a few short blocks away!
