Nestled down on the shore of Lake Washington just south of the SR-520 Bridge featuring beautiful Victorian homes and some of Seattle's most expensive real estate, Madison Park has long been a favorite area of Seattle's affluent. This neighborhood primarily consists of single-family homes. This relatively small-sized neighborhood does have a few apartments and condominiums available to rent in and around the downtown core of Madison Park as well as some buildings along the shore of Lake Washington.
The handful of vintage brick apartment and condominium buildings here were built primarily in the 1960s and 1970s. Very little new development has occurred over the years for rental housing. Relative to the cost of home ownership in this area, rental rates remain quite reasonable.
Many of Madison Park renters are attracted to its convenient location, its small-neighborhood feel and the fact that you can easily walk from most apartments and condos to the shops and restaurants and local hangouts the commercial center has to offer. There are a reasonable number of single family homes that come available for rent. These homes are usually single story, ranch, craftsmen, bungalow or Victorian homes featuring classic character and vintage charm.
