Queen Anne is the
highest hill in town with an elevation of more
than 450 feet above the waters of Puget Sound.
It is worth taking a drive around to see why housing prices
are booming and rentals vacancies are low here.
You will find a stylish combination of
noteworthy architecture, water and city views, and lively
shopping all in close proximity to downtown.
Queen Anne has long been seen as a
desirable place to live. Seattle's
earliest pioneers began to subdivide the hill as early as 1884.
Head up to the west side of the
hill for viewpoints. The "downtown" area of Queen Anne is Queen Anne
Avenue - which stretches with shops, restaurants and boutiques from
Lower Queen Anne, near the Seattle Center and the Uptown Movie
Theater, to the Top of the Hill, up the "Counter Balance" to Galer
Street and across to McGraw Street.
