Hawthorne Hills

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. Many of the streets were named after college towns — Ann Arbor, Pullman, Stanford, etc. The center of the neighborhood is University Circle Park, with its views towards both Lake Washington and downtown Seattle, including the Space Needle.

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.

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.
