"A green, quiet street over Queen Anne"
Nob Hill starts at Queen Anne High School and John Hay Elementary School at the south end, travels up the hill past John Hay High School and down the other side to Seattle Country Day School. Needless to say - terrific place to raise a family. The street is typically quiet, though, not surprisingly, there's a bit of school bus traffic and parents dropping off their kids. The houses and apartment complexes are very well maintained, but like most of Queen Anne real estate, can be quite expensive. Although the street goes to the top of the hill, most homes don't have views of the surrounding city, mountains or Lake Union, but the serenity of the family-friendly neighborhood more than makes up for the lack of landscape views. The area is generally very quiet on weekends, though the laughter and playing from the kids during the school day can usually be heard for a couple of blocks.
