Welcome to Leschi & Madrona
Mellow, community-centric area with an unmatched small-town vibe
On the shore of Lake Washington, you’ll encounter two beautiful Seattle neighborhoods: Leschi and Madrona. Laid-back and tranquil, both of these pristine communities embody a cozy, small-town vibe. Leschi borders Madrona to the south and comprises numerous green spaces and beaches. Madrona encompasses similar amenities, yet has more shopping and dining establishments (especially along 34th Avenue).
Residential properties in this area vary significantly in size, style, and price. Along with Lake Washington, those who are in search of a palatial dream home with lake views will find luxurious properties to meet their desires. Further inland, Modern, Mid-Century, and Craftsman-style homes predominate the landscape.
