The Maywood/Beckstrom Hill Neighborhood is located in both the King and Snohomish County portions of Bothell and comprises the majority of the north-south oriented hill between the North Creek and Horse Creek valleys. The area occupies 1.421 square miles. The overall topography of the neighborhood is steep along the east and west boundaries and moderate in the interior, except for a few small ravines.
Some of Bothell's oldest homes, dating back to the early 1900's, may be found in Maywood/Beckstrom Hill. The majority of the single family dwellings are found in subdivisions constructed since the late 1950's and early 1960's. Some large-lot single family development exists in the northwest portion of the Neighborhood along 15th Avenue SE. There are several churches in this Neighborhood which serve a variety of religeous denominations. Other than numerous home occupations, there is no commercial development on Beckstrom Hill.
Maywood/Beckstrom Hill contains two public schools and two private schools.
