North Queen Anne Apartments for Rent
Seattle’s North Queen Anne neighborhood runs from Highway 99 to Queen Anne Avenue, extending from the Lower Queen Anne neighborhood to the Fremont Cut. A waterway connecting to Lake Union separates the neighborhood from the Fremont district. One of the oldest neighborhoods in Seattle, and one of the highest, Queen Anne sits over 456 feet above sea level. Views from the area overlook Lake Union and Capitol Hill.
First settled in 1851, Queen Anne is now home to many single-family homes and some larger apartment buildings and multis, especially near the top of the hill, near Queen Anne Avenue. Known as “The Ave,” Queen Anne Avenue is also the neighborhood’s main shopping district, with some spillover business lining McGraw Street, which runs perpendicular.
Many families enjoy North Queen Anne. Students attend John Hay or Coe Elementary before heading to McClure Middle School. The Queen Anne High School was sold by the school district and now houses condominiums. Seattle Country Day is also located on North Queen Anne. College students have easy access to both Seattle Pacific University and the University of Washington.
The Ave houses many coffee shops, restaurants, grocery stores, and local niche shops. The Queen Anne Community Center is located one block from Queen Anne Avenue, hosting a swimming pool, rooms for classes, basketball courts, resources for seniors, and afterschool activities. The Queen Anne Farmer’s market runs from June to October. The market’s location changes, but it’s usually near Queen Anne Avenue.
Commuters utilize the Seattle Metro bus system for easy access to downtown. Many bike trails also allow commuting to both the University District and downtown.
