Set up on a hill looking over downtown and Elliot Bay, Queen Anne has the best views in the city. There are those who will argue with that, I know, but I do love those views of the Space Needle and Bay from people's front windows on the south side of Queen Anne Hill. It is known as one of the oldest and also loveliest residential neighborhoods in Seattle, with good schools, a great walkable neighborhood shopping area (Queen Anne Ave) and Lower Queen Anne on the South East side, near Seattle Center, has a great deal of condos and young professionals living in the neighborhoods. Parking is at a premium but many residents don't need cars as they can walk to shopping, dining, pubs, coffee houses, cinemas and theater, and even sports and festivals practically right in their back yard. This make it one of the highly sought after neighborhoods in the city and property values held here better than anywhere and are noticeably on their way back up from the lows at the end of last year. Let's see how sales are running right now.
