Capitol Hill is located directly east and uphill from downtown Seattle. Broadway and 15th are the centers of this eclectic community, which bursts with energy and is referred to by many as the “New York” of Seattle. The neighborhood is robust with art galleries, quaint shops, independent-film theaters, cafes, and funky clothing stores. It is a very urban neighborhood that embraces the diversity of the people who live here –

retired professionals to students attending one of the many colleges in the area: Seattle Central Community College, Cornish College of the Arts, and Seattle University. Capitol Hill also has active church communities, with St. Mark’s Cathedral, the largest Episcopalian congregation in the Pacific Northwest, and St. Joseph’s Church, located in a historically Catholic neighborhood in North Capitol Hill.

Built primarily at the turn of the century, the homes of North Capitol Hill are larger and grander than most properties in other areas of the city. These residences usually contain more architectural detail; have higher ceilings, and more formal spaces. Most have undergone many remodels and updates over the years and are extremely desirable properties today.
