A close-knit and active community, Magnolia is located on a hilly peninsula northwest of downtown. Connected by several bridges, Magnolia is surrounded by water on three sides. Only five minutes from downtown, Magnolia seems a world away from the bustle of Seattle. Stately homes take in breathtaking Puget Sound and Olympic Mountain views. Modest homes, condominiums, townhouses and apartments are also prominent throughout Seattle’s second largest neighborhood. All who live in Magnolia share a love for the peace and quiet that comes with living in one of the western-most spots in the city. Magnolia’s picturesque commercial district, which hosts an annual Halloween parade, takes you back in time. Seattle’s largest park, Discovery Park is 534 acres of forests, fields, bluffs, and beaches, and even a picturesque lighthouse with excellent views of northern Puget Sound.
