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, none is really needed; the University District, Ravenna, and Wedgwood neighborhoods all have plenty of things to do and are within easy reach.

 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.
