Beacon Hill Seattle, WA
Find your home here.
Beacon Hill is a hill and neighborhood in southeast Seattle, Washington. The municipal government subdivides it into North Beacon Hill, Mid-Beacon Hill, Holly Park, and South Beacon Hill, though most people who live there simply call it "Beacon Hill." Former home to the world headquarters of Amazon.com and present home to the Seattle Division of the Department of Veterans Affairs' Puget Sound Health Care System, the hill offers views of downtown, the Industrial District, Elliott Bay, First Hill, Rainier Valley, and, when the weather is good, Mount Rainier and the Olympic Mountains. It is roughly bounded on the west by Interstate 5, on the north by Interstate 90, on the east by Rainier Avenue South, Cheasty Boulevard South, and Martin Luther King Junior Way South, and on the south by the Seattle city boundary. It is part of Seattle's South End. Homes on the northern part of the hill were mostly built in the early 1900s; thus, North Beacon Hill contains many excellent examples of Craftsman bungalows and Seattle box houses, a local variant of the Foursquare style. The American Planning Association (APA), an organization of "planners, citizens and elected officials - committed to making great communities happen", named Beacon Hill as one of the 30 Great Places in America. The features of Beacon Hill that constitute an APA Great Place include urban design and aesthetics, multi-modal transportation, a variety of uses within the neighborhood, sustainability, community participation and involvement, and memorable character. Beacon Hill was also recognized for having the largest Olmsted-planned green space in Seattle, known as Jefferson Park. The neighborhood is highly treasured by its businesses and residents, and the neighborhood is highly involved in local planning affairs such as open space, public safety, and transportation.
