Magnolia is a nature-rich jewel just outside of downtown, west of Queen Anne, and along Elliot Bay. With amazing views and scenic parks abound, its position on the water and limited thru-traffic gives Magnolia a small-town, island-like feel. Residents can still access the rest of Seattle quickly, with just a five-ten minute commute to downtown.
There are a variety of home styles in Magnolia. 1950's mid-century modern ranch houses, new condominiums, and luxurious historic mansions with unobstructed views of Puget Sound all are available in this friendly, suburban neighborhood. Lot sizes tend to be larger, thus homes often have generously-sized yards.
Magnolia is a great neighborhood for people who love to be active in nature, prefer to feel removed from the city, but also want easy access to downtown. Discovery Park boasts 534 acres of beautiful scenery, views of the Cascades, Puget Sound, and Olympics, and many trails through a variety of natural habitats, including two miles of protected beaches.
The center of Magnolia, known as The Village, is where neighbors gather to shop, dine, and dwell over a cup of coffee. Magnolia is the perfect place for those who want the best of both worlds, including city life and a small-town neighborhood feel.
