GET TO KNOW Sunset Hill
Like the other coastal neighborhoods around Ballard, such as North Beach and Blue Ridge, Sunset Hill is a quiet, reserved area, though more casual in appearance and design than the neighborhoods immediately north. You can smell the saltwater drifting from the lively marinas and docks below, though only the westernmost homes will enjoy a direct view of Shilshole Bay. It forms a quiet pocket of residences that vary widely in size and design, occupied mostly by older couples and small families. Residents enjoy easy access to Golden Gardens Park, Shilshole Marina and, of course, central Ballard, where dining and shopping options abound.
