"Terrific neighborhood to raise a family"
This kid-friendly neighborhood is jam packed with homes, just on the outskirts of the mansion-laden neighborhood that encompasses the southwest corner of Queen Anne. The houses are still nice, well-kept single-family homes with huge trees, tons of greenery and a great community spirit. West Howe Street is actually broken up by McClure Middle School, the Queen Anne Community Center and the giant Queen Anne Park and Playfield. Residents also have quick access to amazing restaurants, shops, food markets, recreation centers and local businesses, as well as a quick 10-minute commute to downtown Seattle. Public transportation runs only a couple of blocks away, saving you from having to navigate the narrow residential streets. On-street parking narrows the streets further, and blind intersections keep your driving speed pretty low.
