Queen Anne, Magnolia
270 Available Homes
Seattle is world famous for its picturesque skyline of the Space Needle set against downtown skyscrapers and magnificent Mount Rainier in the background. That famous vantage point can be found on Seattle's Queen Anne Hill just north of Belltown / Downtown Seattle. Queen Anne Hill derives its name from the housing style that prevailed there in its early construction which was English Baroque. Queen Anne is characterized by the famous counterbalance, referring to the incline up Queen Anne Avenue. The name comes from the counterweights built under the street to help move electric street cars up and down the hill. Today, Queen Anne real estate combines the best in-city luxury houses and condos and the finest Seattle homes with views and rest in a quaint local ambiance. A multitude of family owned restaurants and stores are atop the hill, ideal for evening strolls. The neighboring community to the west, Magnolia, is only 4 square miles and home to Discovery Park and Seattle's oldest lighthouse. Discovery Park is a naturalist's wonderland with beach walks, woodlands and meadows. Located on a peninsula, Magnolia is accessible only by bridge, giving it a secluded island feel. Magnolia real estate is known for manicured lots, Puget Sound bluff vistas, and the idyllic village just minutes away. The in-city exclusion provides Magnolia residents with the best of both words. If you are seeking a Seattle condo or Seattle home for sale with a view, Queen Anne or Magnolia would be the perfect place for you.
