Queen Anne Boulevard: Buying a Home Along Queen Anne’s Boulevard. I have been writing about the various highlights along Queen Anne Boulevard on Queen Anne’s crown, but it is amazing how many people I show Queen Anne homes to that have not heard of this 80 plus year old loop around the top of Seattle’s Queen Anne neighborhood.
Queen Anne Boulevard has been the source for much love and hate through the years and a big part of that involves the fact that very little people moving into the area have even heard of it. It is now largely marked by trees and various signage you might miss if you sneeze, but Queen Anne locals know all about it…hopefully.
The trees are gorgeous, but what do you really need to check for when it is time to buy a home along Queen Anne Boulevard? Buying a Home Along Queen Anne’s Boulevard. It is important to really look at that title report you get when you are buying Queen Anne real estate along the Boulevard so that you know exactly what you are getting. The city condemned sometimes as much as 16 or 17 feet on either side in some places as part of public lands turned over to the parks department. Many Queen Anne residents have gone through the years not knowing that half their front yard is fact not theirs at all. Many Queen Anne home buyers have been quite surprised to find out that they bought a home along a Boulevard they had not heard of and that they don’t own part of their property.

Queen Anne Blog: Queen Anne Seattle School Update:
The Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle just had Old John Hay renamed to Queen Anne Elementary as reported by the Seattle Times. According to the Times, Queen Anne Elementary will reopen as an option school. The school originally opened in 1905 and has a long history in the Queen Anne neighborhood. It is one of Seattle’s oldest schools and luckily got some love and care after falling into complete disrepair. Today, it is a gorgeous focal point in the neighborhood – you can find it at 411 Boston St. on Queen Anne Hill.
