Huffman O’Malley

Huffman O’Malley is one of the more affluent communities in Anchorage with median home values close to $400,000. The neighborhood contains a number of high-quality residential developments, but, at the same time, it's not far from lots of stores, restaurants, and parks.


Not surprisingly, Hillside gets its name from the fact that it's on a set of hills. This is a great place to live if you love beautiful views and even more beautiful sunsets. It's also a great place to live if you enjoy watching wildlife as there is plenty of it around. You'll further find homes with large yards, and the schools are really great.
