Welcome to Magnolia
A tranquil and suburban neighborhood next to Discovery Park.
Magnolia is a tranquil neighborhood on a peninsula between Elliot and Salmon Bay. Residents love taking short drives, walks, or bike rides to Discovery Park
, which spans over 500 acres of forests and meadows with hiking and bicycle trails woven through them. It also contains West Point Lighthouse
, tennis and pickleball courts, a playground, a wetland bird sanctuary, and beach shores greeting the Puget Sound. Many Magnolia homes boast stellar bay and Puget Sound views. The Magnolia neighborhood has a serene and secluded feeling and is only a 20-minute drive to downtown Seattle. Though zoning laws are subject to change, Magnolia has a history of upholding firm zoning laws contributing to its competitive housing market. Magnolia also has a history of steadily increasing real estate prices. Therefore, waiting to purchase Magnolia real estate may prove more costly than buying sooner. If you would like to relocate to Magnolia and sell your current home, Compass Spring Market Guide
is an excellent resource for home sellers.
Magnolia residents not only appreciate their neighborhood for its relaxed atmosphere but also for its food and fun-loving community. Independently owned restaurants featuring menus with organic, sustainable, and locally sourced ingredients, such as Pink Salt
, or pubs with weekly trivia nights, such as Mulleady’s Irish Pub
, color this neighborhood. Home-cooked meals are a joy to shop for as well at Metropolitan Market
, a reputable grocer and deli with high quality, consciously-sourced produce, seafood, and food items.
