"A quiet street on the way to the beach"
True to it's name, SW Hill St. travels up one side of the hill and down the other, dotting the area with single-family homes. Home prices at the top of the hill are about half of what they cost at the bottom on each end due to the proximity to the water and beaches. Like most West Seattle neighborhoods, there are plenty of trees and nice gardens with mostly well-kept yards. The street crosses California Ave on the east side, giving residents shopping and dining destinations within walking distance. On the west side, the street dead-ends at Sunset Avenue, where there are many beautiful homes overlooking Puget Sound above a steep decline providing unobstructed views of the ocean.
