Hawthorne Hills – Seattle Neighborhood Guide
This small residential area near View Ridge and Laurelhurst offers amazing views of Lake Washington, Downtown Seattle, and the Cascade Mountains. It is charming and quiet, but in a great location for zipping to other parts of the city.
Hawthorne Hills and View Ridge were being developed at the same time, and each had their appeals. Hawthorne Hills hoped to outshine Laurelhurst with paved streets, public utilities, and sewers, but View Ridge did a little better job of advertising and attracting residents. In the end, Hawthorne Hills didn’t quite reach its goal, but the careful planning had a great end result. Nearly all of the homes in Hawthorne Hills are the originals, with some renovations in the past few decades.
People live the good life in Hawthorne Hills. Rolling, snaking boulevards give it a stress-free feel. And while there is no business district, but none is really needed; the University District, Ravenna, and Wedgwood all have plenty of things to do and are within easy reach.
Who Lives Here?
Residents of this neighborhood enjoy the space given to them by their large homes, private yards, and wide streets. Because of the prime real estate, the median household income is quite high, and most of the people here have lucrative careers. Over half of the population is married, and about 28% of homes have children, according to Zillow.
Activities and Attractions
From the bottom of the hill, it’s easy to hop on the Burke-Gilman trail. Heading east will give you great views of Lake Washington and access to its beaches. Head west will take you to the U-Village and all of the shopping and dining experiences you could imagine.
