Sunset hill is gorgeous, full of stately old homes from the 1900-1950s. You will hear chickens sqwaking in the residents large backyards, see many families out walking their dogs, enjoy remarkable views of the Olympic mountain range and Puget Sound, plus there is a micro hood with a bakery, ice cream shop, and grocery store in the neighborhood.
