Madrona Seattle Real Estate Analysis

Madrona is a residential community in central Seattle located on the shores of Lake Washington.  Madrona is bordered on the north by E. Howell Street, Denny Way and Madrona Drive beyond which is Washington Park and Denny Blaine neighborhoods.  To the west of Madrona lies Martin Luther King, Jr. Way beyond which is generally referred to as the Central District and to the south by the neighborhood of Leschi which begins on the other side of E. Cherry Street.

While Madrona is located on the shores of Lake Washington, the neighborhood does not feature any waterfront homes.  The waterfront is dominated by Madrona Beach Park which was originally developed around 1889 to attract buyers to the neighborhood which was considered remote.  Today the neighborhood is only 10 minutes from downtown Seattle on city streets.

The homes in Madrona can be somewhat diverse.  While no one ever refers to Madrona as a hill, the neighborhood gently slopes of from its western border until it crests at 34th Avenue where it begins to slopes more drastically down to Lake Washington.  Thus to the east of 34th many homes are larger and have views of Lake Washington while on the west of 34th Avenue houses are generally more reasonably priced.  Still many of the houses west of 34th Avenue have views of the University of Washington to the north and downtown Seattle to the west (although partially blocked by Capitol Hill and First Hill) and are still desirable homes.

Madrona’s enjoys a small but vibrant commercial core filled with shops and restaurants at the corner of 34th and Union.  The commercial core is family oriented , so the commercial district is generally shut down around by 11 pm, midnight at the latest.  The shops and restaurants line 34th for 2 blocks on 34th between Spring and Pike.  The restaurants include the Hi Spot a very popular breakfast and lunch restaurant, Thai restaurant, St. Clouds that often has live music on the weekends, as well as other great restaurants, a corner market, barber shop, dry cleaner, laundromat, and the headquarters of Glassy Babies where you can watch them make their famous candle holders from the shop.
