Prospect Hill, Tacoma, Washington


Prospect Hill, Tacoma, Washington

Prospect Hill is a neighborhood of the north end neighborhood of Tacoma, Washington. Although Prospect Hill is considered the official planning name for the area, it has gone by many others, including North West East South (after the cardinal direction roads within, even though there is no South Road). Prospect Hill is highly educated and very wealthy, with large houses and a more rural atmosphere. The area borders on Old Woman's Gulch to the west and overlooks Ruston Way to the north and Old Tacoma to the east.

The few houses with views of the waterfront - mostly located on North and Orchard Roads - are some of the most expensive properties in the city and often sell for well over $1 million as of April 2006.
