    Nathan Watkins's digital designs of First Hill
    Seattle's first residential neighborhood sits at the edge of downtown, a stone's throw from I-5, and steps from Capitol Hill's busy Pike/Pine Corridor. To some, First Hill is a pass-through neighborhood-a place you encounter when en route to someplace else.

North Seattle midcentury has geometric fireplaces and a bomb shelter

1207 NW Culbertson Dr [Homes by Cherie]

    North Seattle midcentury has geometric fireplaces and a bomb shelter
    Overlooking the water in Seattle's Broadview neighborhood, this five-bedroom midcentury home feels a little remote despite being in the city, located on an acre near the end of a winding, forested road. Built in 1961 and designed by Robert G. Parr, it's the kind of Northwest modern that's made to nestle seamlessly among the trees-while still providing an opulent interior.

This Laurelhurst home is a big part of neighborhood history

Eventually, the golf course became the Laurelhurst Beach Club, and the building was converted back to a residence and moved to its current location at 5100 NE Latimer Place.

    This Laurelhurst home is a big part of neighborhood history
    This Laurelhurst luxury home currently on the market was originally built as a farmhouse right around 1900-before Laurelhurst became the posh, lakeside community it is today. But as time went on, it would play an integral role in the neighborhood's development, taking on a couple of different lives before becoming a single-family home again.

Stately North Admiral home is fancy inside and out

1913 Victoria Ave SW [Reside]

    Stately North Admiral home is fancy inside and out
    On a dead-end street in a West Seattle hillside, this dramatic, colonial revival home nestles in the trees-but still manages to have some big city and sound views. The structure of the house itself certainly makes an impression, with an imposing design and more than 4,000 square feet of living space.
