The Edgemoor Neighborhood is located along Bellingham Bay in the southwest corner of the city. This quiet, residential neighborhood has long been considered a desirous place to live by Bellingham residents.
Some of the city's most elegant homes are located in the western section of Edgemoor. These homes have well landscaped half acre lots and enjoy magnificent views of Bellingham Bay and the San Juan Islands. The historic Lairmont Manor, a popular venue for weddings, receptions and other formal occasions, is located here.
Homes in the eastern section of the neighborhood (east of Fieldston Road) do not have views of the Bellingham Bay, but many have views of Chuckanut Mountain or Chuckanut Bay. The northern portion of the neighborhood has a small area with contemporary homes on smaller lots that enjoy views of Bellingham Bay and the city.
Clark's Point makes up the southern section of the neighborhood. Clark's Point is a large, steep heavily wooded peninsula that extends into Bellingham Bay forming the western boundary of Chuckanut Bay.
Edgemoor residents have access to a portion of the tidal lagoon commonly known as Edgemoor Lagoonlocated west of Bayside Road. Bayside Pool, a popular place for swimming lessons during the summer for many Bellingham families, is located in the central part of Edgemoor.
