Wilcox Wall on Queen Anne's West Slope: Major Part of Queen Anne Boulevard

Real Estate Agent with Ben Kinney Brokerages Leadership at our Keller Williams North Seattle Office

Wilcox Wall Queen AnneThe Wilcox Wall is just one of the jewels in the Queen Anne Blvd necklace on the Queen Anne's West Slope.  This amazing piece of Seattle history is such a key feature to this neighborhood and a wonderful place to take a stroll at just over .4 of a mile long.

Wilcox Wall:  Originally the Wilcox Wall which was designed by architect Walter Ross Baumes Wilcox (also designed the Arboretum Bridge) was called the 1913 Queen Anne Boulevard Retaining Wall according to the Museum of History & Industry.  It is also referred to as the West Queen Anne Wallsby some sources, but many more just know it as the Wilcox Wall.  It is interesting because the walls are all interconnected and vary in height from around 4 feet to about 22 feet.  The brickwork and lighting on the Wilcox wall are phenomenal and there are staircases going down to the next street level if you choose or just a flat walk.   

Where can you find this beautiful Queen Anne landmark?  The Wilcox Wall is on the West stretch of Queen Anne Boulevard.  Queen Anne Boulevard is Queen Anne's Green Lake Loop and spans many streets for a complete distance of around 3.7 miles.  The Wilcox Wall is just a small portion of that at a little over .4 of a mile as stated above, but it is all scenic Puget Sound views along the way.  Wilcox Wall runs along 8th Place West between W Galer Street to the North and West Highland Drive to the South at Marshall Park (Betty Bowen Viewpoint). 

Wilcox Wall Queen AnneQueen Anne View Homes:  If you find yourself looking for a Queen Anne home with a Puget Sound View, then chances are you will run into the Wilcox Wall or another part of Queen Anne Boulevard.

West Queen Anne real estate is full of Seattle homes that offer wonderful views from Southwest Queen Anne Hill in most cases! 

 Queen Anne real estate is amazing!  Let us know if you have questions about Wilcox Wall, Queen Anne Boulevard, or Queen Anne homes - this is one of Seattle's oldest neighborhoods and full of rich history.  We would love to share it with you!
