"From mansions to nice family homes - a terrific place to live"
The streets in the southwest corner of Queen Anne can be hit-or-miss, with some less-than-desirable and others just downright awful. That's the street, though. The houses in the area are stunning, and most offer spectacular views of Puget Sound and the Seattle skyline. On the lower half of the south side, the mansions are extravagant and expansive, most with the aforementioned views. As you get closer to the top of the hill, the homes become a little more modest, but are still nice single-family residences. All of the streets in this area are very green, lined with huge canopies of trees and summer gardens. A few of the intersecting streets, such as Galer, provide some nice places for shopping and dining, with a few local businesses and hidden gems for residents. At the top of Queen Anne and the base of the hill, you'll find more outstanding restaurants, shops, markets and entertainment sources. The hill itself is populated with many parks, and includes quite a few schools, making it one of the most family-friendly areas to live in in the city.
