Madrona is located to the west of Lake Washington, midway between State Route 520 and Interstate 90. The neighborhood is divided by 34th Avenue, with the more pricey houses found to the east (by the shores of Lake Washington), and the lower/middle priced property to the west, towards Seattle’s Central District.
Madrona is known as the ‘peaceable kingdom’ because, similar to Capitol Hill, it is so ethnically diverse. Along with its ethnic diversity it sports diverse architecture, with housing styles ranging from small bungalows to lakeside mansions.
Neighborhood amenities include Larkins and Madrona Parks, as well as Madrona Elementary School. Community events include April home tours, the May Fair (a community party) and the annual neighborhood cleanup in the fall.
