Seattle Real Estate Spotlight: Queen Anne

Queen Anne is known for its sweeping views of Downtown Seattle's skyline from Kerry Park - its foreground dominated by the Space Needle and background framed by Mt. Rainier. The neighborhood has two distinct business districts - Upper Queen Anne and Uptown (also known as Lower Queen Anne), and its tree-lined residential streets boast many homes in its namesake architectural style, and are some of the grandest in Seattle real estate.

History

Owing to its steep slopes, Queen Anne was one of the last neighborhoods in Seattle to be developed, and settlement began in the mid-19th Century on the south slope of what was then called Eden Hill. An electric trolley built in 1902 brought residents to the top of the forested hill, and as more homebuilders began building in the Queen Anne style, the neighborhood became known as "Queen Anne Town." The shortened version stuck, and by 1930 Queen Anne had a population of nearly 30,000.

Points of Interest

Along with Kerry Park and its picturesque views, Queen Anne is home to numerous green spaces. Kinnear Park, Queen Anne Park, and leafy Olmsted-designed boulevards provide space for residents to enjoy the outdoors. The Seattle Center area at the base of Queen Anne is Seattle's gathering place, and is home to the Space Needle, McCaw Hall opera house, Key Arena, and the Pacific Northwest Ballet. Thriving business districts offer residents a wide variety of restaurants and shops.
