Situated northwest of downtown Seattle, Magnolia is a tranquil predominantly single family neighborhood that has some of the most stunning vistas and real estate in town. Perched on a peninsula, most of the neighborhood has views of the water while the south slope has incredible vistas of downtown and Mt. Rainier. Combine this with the top-notch amenities to be had, it’s clear why Magnolia real estate is in high demand.

Buying a home in Magnolia

If you are looking for a Magnolia condo you will likely be focusing in the northern end of the peninsula. A Magnolia townhouse would likely be found on the east slope although more are being built on top of the hill. Magnolia homes can be found throughout the neighborhood. Lawtonwood and Perkins Lane offer waterfront living. If you have any questions about Magnolia I would be happy to help.

What to Expect

It was mistakenly called Magnolia in 1857 by Lieutenant George Davidson, who mistook the madrona trees in the neighborhood for magnolia trees. Local Duwamish people had been fishing in the area long before that. Nevertheless, the name stuck. The culture of being a fishing community has partially stuck, however, with The Fishermen’s Terminal located on the northern edge of Magnolia and Elliott Bay Marina on the south. 

 

Magnolia is surrounded by water with access to the rest of Seattle limited to three bridges that connect with 15th Ave W. This access restriction means that despite the convenient proximity to downtown Seattle, residents of Magnolia can expect a slower pace on larger lots. The neighborhood is home to LawtonCatharine Blaine, and Magnolia Elementary schools. The neighborhood zones to McClure Middle School in Queen Anne and Ballard High School in Ballard.

The Lifestyle

The Magnolia Village is the center of cultural life in the neighborhood and is where you will find the post office, coffee shops, and restaurants. Check out the Petit Pierre Bakery, a local favorite, and get some new reading material at the Magnolia Bookstore. In the summer months, local vendors from all over Puget Sound sell their wares at the Magnolia Farmers Market

Unexpected Appeal

The 534-acre Discovery Park is a local treasure, with a 2.8 mile loop trail that is popular amongst runners. Seattle’s largest, it never feels crowded in part because of its size but also because of the location. The park, a former military compound, also features the picturesque West Point Lighthouse and multiple miles of protected beaches. If you want views of downtown Seattle, go to Ella Bailey Park – it’s one of my daughter’s favorite playgrounds!

You'll Fall In Love With

By far the biggest appeal of Magnolia is the proximity to downtown Seattle – and how you’d never guess it! Quiet and secluded, the neighborhood offers serenity without compromises. City life isn’t the primary motivator for most Magnolia residents, and you’ll find most of them staying on the peninsula to catch vistas of the ferries crossing the sound at sunset.
