Welcome to Queen Anne
Charming cultural hub abuzz with adventures
A charming and highly walkable neighborhood in Seattle, Queen Anne derived its name from the architectural style of the homes there. Formerly known as Eden Hill, it sits on Vashon Glacier, formed more than ten thousand years ago. Known for its vibrant lifestyle, Queen Anne is surrounded by spacious and green landscapes. Its elevation gives residents a scenic and breath-taking view of the Seattle skyline with all the prestige and elegance of a tucked-in hillside retreat. Further divided into two: Upper and Lower, Upper Queen Anne is more residential and mostly occupied by single family homes, while lower Queen Anne exudes more vibrancy and a hub of commerce. Rows of stores, restaurants and nightlife venues lie within arms reach, while grassy hills and luscious parks allow for year-round recreation and picnics in the fine weather.
