Madrona sits east of Lake Washington between State Route 520 and Interstate 90. A main attraction, pedestrian-friendly 34th street is dotted with cafes, restaurants, and boutiques. Outside the charming business district, the area is home to beautiful parks and a series of rugged trails, many of which have spectacular views of Lake Washington.

Madrona is the place to be if you want to live in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood yet still be relatively close to downtown. Rresidents do enjoy one of the lowest average commute times in the city, at 22 minutes. Wholesome family events are easy to find; movie nights, cultural parades, outdoor concerts, knitting groups, and wine tasting to name a few. This is a true community, with everyone working together to make it the best place to be. It’s no wonder they claim to be “Seattle’s best kept secret!”

The median salary or Madrona residents is much greater than that of Seattle as a whole, according to Zillow. Success is also evident in the fact that over 75% of residents own their homes or condos. Madrona has a high population of married couples, many of whom also have children, and the age distribution trends towards the 30-50 year range.
