"Great place to live if you can afford it"
Queen Anne hill is known for its huge mansions and spectacular views. The concentration of these gigantic homes is very high in this neighborhood, and most of these old mansions are gorgeously maintained. The ones on the south side have incredible views of Puget Sound and the sunsets over the water. The entire street, like all of them in this area, are lush and green with giant trees and tons of color. If you can afford to live on Queen Anne, the southwest corner can't be beat, though the homes don't offer much in the way of privacy since they're very close together. Lot sizes are about average, and the entire lot is typically taken up by a sprawling house. Most of the lawns and gardens are very well manicured, though there are some overgrown areas. Home prices, as you might expect, are high, but the area is very family-friendly and offers convenient access to highways, downtown Seattle and some great dining, shopping and recreation parks and centers in the area.
