Overview of Queen Anne

While you can rent a Queen Anne apartment easily enough, this idyllic neighborhood is actually named for its homes. The Queen Anne style of free Renaissance architecture sets the mood in this north-central stretch of the city. Queen Anne is a close, clean community of young families and singles, popular with maturing hipsters. Eating and entertainment options aren’t scarce here, and neither are spectacular views. Queen Anne gets split into North, West, East, and Lower Queen Anne neighborhoods.

Lower Queen Anne was part of pioneer David Denny’s 1853 claim. He called it Potlach Meadows then. When a hurricane helped deforest the hill in 1875, people started to build more homes in the heights. A decade later, the Queen Anne architectural style had taken root and the area’s name changed. Depending on whether you consider the Downtown adjacent streets to be Lower Queen Anne or Uptown, this is where you’ll find the Space Needle and other major Seattle attractions.

Queen Anne Lifestyle and Entertainment

The business heart of Queen Anne is Queen Anne Avenue. Along this strip you’ll find a fine selection of restaurants and shops, good for a classy meal or a retail romp. You’ll also stumble across more than a few places vending unique and odd items that you weren’t aware you needed. Lower Queen Anne houses the Experience Music Project, the Pacific Science Center, and the Space Needle. There are over two-dozen parks in Queen Anne, from tiny Kerry Park with it’s outsized views to Kinnear Park, offering 14 acres of woodland and fields.

Queen Anne Info and the Rental Market

What you’ll need to spend on a Queen Anne apartment depends on which section of the neighborhood you rent in. Atop the hill, in North Queen Anne, the average monthly rent creeps up to near $2,000. You can save $500 a month renting a place in Lower or East Queen Anne, however. While this is a neighborhood known for fine homes, it remains popular with renters. They make up close to two-thirds of the residents here.

Getting into town from a Queen Anne rental isn’t a bad walk, depending on how far up the hill you live. There are Seattle Metro buses one can hop, and you can also catch the monorail that terminates at Seattle Center, in Lower Queen Anne. Commuting by bike is another popular option.
