Overlooking the Puget Sound, Magnolia Maintains its Yester-year Charm
Located on a Puget Sound peninsula, the Magnolia neighborhood was originally established as a major trading post for goods coming from across the Pacific. It maintains a uniquely outward-facing, nautical appeal that harkens back to the ships’ captains and maritime executives who helped build it into one of Seattle’s premier neighborhoods throughout the 20th century. It is consistently ranked as one of the city’s most desirable and livable communities with its low-key atmosphere, and is surrounded by nature, beautiful waterways, mountain and sunset views.
A Complete Neighborhood
Today, Magnolia thrives as a preferred residential community for well-educated singles, couples and families, yet offers a charming small-town sensibility with its eclectic mix of elegantly scaled homes, beautiful gardens and community-minded residents. Magnolia Village offers a seasonal farmers market, festivals and plentiful retail including boutiques, gift shops and upscale grocers, restaurants, salons, bakeries and coffee shops. This is a complete neighborhood.
City Access without On-Ramps
With its integrated mix of residential, retail and commercial property, Magnolia can feel like its own town on the peninsula, yet it is extremely convenient to the commerce of Downtown Seattle and the tech and research corridors along South Lake Union and Elliott Avenue. It’s all accessible without on-ramps or freeways. In fact, many residents opt for bikes or public transportation to venture into the city. Like an island community, its residents view Magnolia as a delightfully safe, family-friendly oasis within easy reach of all that the city has to offer.
Enjoying Magnolia’s highest perch overlooking Puget Sound is Fort Lawton, offering everything a resident could need within a short walk, bike ride or drive of one's home in the park.
