At Aria you can linger in bed a little while longer. Imagine a short commute to places like Nintendo and Microsoft (to name a few). Have a quick stroll at Anderson Park across the street to walk your pup. Spend the afternoon wine tasting in Woodinville Wine Country where you can drink in valley views and sample from over 100 different wineries. Later you can dance in evening air during a Marymoor concert or sample a seasonal flavor at Molly Moon’s (or go with steadfast classic salted caramel, it’s always there for you). Maybe tomorrow you’ll sink into your usual seat at Tian Tian or relax with a nice glass of red on the roof while taking in Mt. Rainier views. This is the attraction of Aria. It’s not complicated. It’s stylish clean design and exceptional service in the heart of Redmond at the ready to add luxury into the every day moments of life.

City Guide for Union Hill-Novelty Hill, WA

The environmentalist and nature-conscious residents of the evergreen-thick Novelty Hill probably don't know that the region was actually a logging center for decades. Lumberjacks notoriously frequented the area's local bordello, which was later lost among the sea of current developments.

The population of the unincorporated areas known as Union Hill and Novelty Hill has exploded since 2000. East Novelty Hill saw growth around 70%, mostly because of big master-planned developments; locals even joke that the orange traffic cone should be the official symbol. Big tracts of houses, condominiums, and apartment complexes are in growing pockets that are still surrounded by horse ranches, farms, and big stands of timber. Places like Redmond Ridge are becoming distinct neighborhoods and are good places to search for 3 bedroom apartments to rent. The legendary outdoor recreational opportunities of the foothills of the Cascade mountains are at your doorstep. Bigfoot sightings help keep the cats nervous and staying inside. See more

What to keep in mind when looking for apartments with hardwood floors in Union Hill-Novelty Hill, WA

Scoring an apartment with hardwood floors can be a big win for Union Hill-Novelty Hill renters. They`re typically a beautiful addition to your space. They’re also easier to clean and sweep, particularly if you have pets.

However, there are some downsides. Hardwood floors carry sounds. They can also make your apartment noisy for your roommates and downstairs neighbors.

Ask the landlord or property manager about the hardwood floors before signing a lease. Are they actually hardwood or a popular composite alternative? The latter is probably easier to clean and care for than the real thing.

It’s also important to ask about who’s responsible for any damage to the floors and what that entails. Your security deposit could take a hit from scratches, dents, and other damage.

Consider the type of climate you live in. Hardwood floors typically don’t fare well in damp climates full of moisture. Stains and buckling are common in hardwood floors after rain flooding or excessive moisture.

However, hardwood floors can be ideal for dry climates or sunny areas for renters who love the way they look.
