Magnolia

Magnolia

Magnolia is a quiet, comfortable neighborhood close to Downtown. Situated on a peninsula west of Queen Anne, Magnolia was primarily built between 1930 and 1960, giving it a very different architectural feel from its neighbors, Queen Anne and Ballard. Made up of two hills, Magnolia enjoys views of downtown from east hill, and views of the water from west hill. Its natural boundaries create limited through-traffic and one of the lowest crime rates in the city. The neighborhood, which has almost an island-like quality, is a mix of upscale contemporary homes, mansions, ranch-style houses, condominiums and apartments.

The area has an urban center called “The Village” which lies in a valley in-between Magnolia’s two hills. Here you’ll find delicious restaurants, cafes, shops and grocery stores.

Magnolia is also home to a number of local parks, including Magnolia Park and Discovery Park, Seattle’s largest green space. This sprawling 534-acre park has woods, open areas, beaches and a lighthouse and is kept wild for an urban wilderness experience.
