A Queenly Autumn Stroll

This week brought me out to Upper Queen Anne on a particularly sunny, crisp autumn day. I took some time to walk through the neighborhood and enjoy the coziness this fall has dropped off. Leaf-lined sidewalks, fun Halloween displays, and the autumnal spirit made this neighborhood feel like a earlier, simpler time. Families walked along the streets, and children played in the park. It reminded me of all the good that’s very much still in the world, and I wanted to share a piece of that with all of you.

Beautiful tree-lined streets. Roads like this remind you just how old and established the Queen Anne neighborhood really is.

The Seattle Gym, right at the top of Queen Anne hill, is in a building that was built in 1927. Next-door, you can find a local automotive shop (MarQueen Garage) that’s been around in the 1920s, in a building that was built way back in the 1890s.


Adorable, seasonal decorations fill the neighborhood.


Some families here get very into the Halloween spirit!


I like to think that this truck has been serviced at the same 1920s MarQueen Garage all its life.





Splashes of color adorn every street. It’s solidly, beautifully fall.



Oh no!


Beautiful. This walk was a lovely break from my busy day, and it left me invigorated and happy to call this city home.


Upper Queen Anne is a world apart from the bustle and chaos of the rest of Seattle. It’s a neighborhood with old brick Tudors and kids’ lemonade stands. A lovely, old-fashioned place for a family. Curious about the housing market there? Give me a call!
