Seattle Real Estate Spotlight: Beacon Hill

Beacon Hill is one of Seattle's larger neighborhoods, bordered by I-5 to the west and the Rainier Valley to the east, and stretching from the International District all the way south to Rainier Beach. Because of its hilltop location, many homes here enjoy spectacular view of the Olympics, Cascades, Puget Sound, and Downtown Seattle. Homes in Beacon Hill are still relatively affordable, making it a popular choice for first-time homeowners.


The first settlers moved to the area in 1889, and M. Harwood Young, a Union army veteran, christened Seattle's Beacon Hill after the historic Beacon Hill in Boston. The first home in the area was built on five acres near what is now Jefferson Park. Boeing Field was completed in the area west of Beacon Hill in 1928, and another indication of the area's growth was the completion of Cleveland High School in 1927.

Points of Interest

Beacon Hill has a strong residential community appeal, and residents enjoy having easy access to the downtown area. Beacon Hill is home to the Veteran's Puget Sound Healthcare hospital, Jefferson Park Golf Club and Park, and a small business district along Beacon Avenue South. Grab a coffee at Delite's Bakery Shop, share pizza slices at Bar Del Corso, or head to Maplewood Park for outdoor fun on the baseball fields or basketball courts.
