In addition to the shopping and restaurants available in Magnolia Village, residents of Magnolia enjoy quick access to attractions in Belltown and Downtown. Less accessible are the I-5 and I-90 interstates so commutes to South Seattle or the Eastside are more time consuming.

Long known as one of Seattle's most established neighborhoods featuring magnificent estates and spectacular view homes, Magnolia offers quite a diverse range of rental housing options. With the development that occurred from early in the century through the 1970s there are a large number of rental units available in duplex and small multiplex properties in this area. Additionally, you will find numerous small apartment complexes in Magnolia.
The majority of these types of properties are located on the east side of the hill that wrap around the north side, as well as properties located on the top of the hill in close proximity to Magnolia Village. If you want to live in walking distance to the great shops and restaurants at the heart of Magnolia you should focus your search for properties close to the village.
Magnolia also provides a great selection of homes for rent. From small affordable two bedroom homes to stunning classic homes with spectacular views, this neighborhood offers a vast range of home types available to rent. If you are looking for something somewhat quieter for an in-city location, yet still close to downtown with rental housing a little more affordable than some neighborhoods, Magnolia can be a great choice.
Because it is the western most in-city Seattle location, it offers less convenient access to highways and to the Eastside.
