Beacon Hill Real Estate

Beacon Hill Real EstateBeacon Hill is one of the largest neighborhoods in Seattle, and it can be found running along the east side of I-5 to the east of the city. As the name would indicate, the neighborhood is located on a hill that rises above the rest of Seattle. This elevation gives the neighborhood some impressive views of the surrounding region including the mountains, the sound, and more. Beacon Hill has been recognizable for many reasons through the years, including as the former home of Amazon corporate headquarters. 

Unlike some of the other neighborhoods in Seattle, the majority of Beacon Hill is made up of single family homes. The average price of the MLS listings in Beacon Hill is slightly higher than $350,000, making it somewhat more affordable for many working in the city as compared to living right Downtown. Due to the fact that many of the homes on Beacon Hill were built during the 50’s and 60’s, most of the homes are older and smaller than some of the new developments farther out in the suburbs and on the Eastside. 

One of the iconic locations on Beacon Hill is what is now called Pacific Tower. It is an Art Deco style building that originally served as a Marine hospital in the 1930’s. Throughout its history, it has also served as Amazon headquarters, and now houses classes for Seattle Central Community College. The building is recognizable to many residents of the Seattle area, and is visible for miles to the north due to its prominent location. Other attractions on Beacon Hill include the municipal Jefferson Park Golf Course, and many popular restaurants. 

Beacon Hill has remained a popular neighborhood throughout the development of the Seattle area thanks to a great location, quick access to Downtown, beautiful views, and a lively culture. Real estate buyers searching for a single family home within the Seattle city limits would be smart to review the listings on Beacon Hill.
