A former golf course in Woodinville has once again changed hands.
Northshore School District Support Services, a division of the Northshore School District in Bothell, has recently bought a roughly 22-acre property in Woodinville for $11.2 million.
The seller was Snohomish County Property Management, a division of Snohomish County. The deal closed on Thursday October 26th.
The property is the former site of Wellington Hills golf course, which has changed ownership various times over the last few years. In April 2012, Snohomish County bought the 9-hole golf course from the University of Washington for $9.7 million for parkland as part of King County’s mitigation for the Brightwater sewage treatment plant, which opened in 2011 about a mile from the golf course, according to an earlier article from patch.com. The golf course officially closed in September 2012, and the county subsequently converted the public course to parkland and athletic fields.
The three-parcel property, located at 7026 240th St. SE, is roughly 3.5 miles to the northeast of Woodinville and 6 miles to the northeast of Bothell. Additionally, the property is roughly one mile from access to Washington State Route 522.
The first plot of land, comprised of 2.4 acres, is occupied by a one-story single-family residence built in 1962. The second .76 acre parcel is designated zoned for land and improvements, and is currently used for sports and other outdoor activities. The third parcel, a 18.62-acre plot of land, is also currently utilized for outdoor activities.
Northshore School District serves more than 21,000 students in Bothell, Kenmore, Woodinville and other areas of unincorporated King and Snohomish counties and is the tenth largest school district in Washington, according to the organization’s website. The district has 20 elementary schools, 6 middle schools, 4 comprehensive high schools, an alternative high school, an independent contract learning program and early childhood education program.
The Snohomish County Property Management is part of the Department of Facilities Management division, and is the county’s administrative agency in charge of the management, inventory and disposition of county-owned real estate and personal property, according to the online website. Additionally, the Property Management division facilitates the licensing, leasing, sale or disposal of properties within the county, including personal and tax title property.
