Living in Medina and Hunts Point has become an increasingly popular choice—with a high price tag to match.
Medina is one of Seattle’s most high-end suburbs. Located east of the city on the opposing shoreline, many homes in Medina feature views of the iconic Seattle skyline and idyllic Lake Washington. From traditional styles to modern architectural wonders, homes here range widely to fit a variety of luxury tastes, and the town has garnered a reputation as being the go-to destination for top-of-the-line real estate. If you’re looking for a true escape from the city to your own luxury estate, Medina should be at the top of your list—as should nearby Hunts Point, a much smaller enclave adjacent to Medina’s north end. Hunts Point is a peninsula jutting into Lake Washington that is full of the best in private, high-end homes. These two interconnected areas have become the premier neighborhoods for Seattle’s most wealthy residents.
Living in Medina and Hunts Point has become an increasingly popular choice—with a high price tag to match. These high-end properties give residents a quiet, private lifestyle to enjoy the region’s temperate weather and stunning views, with the convenience of being just a short drive away from the business and cultural centers of Seattle. This has made these communities the top pick for the city’s elite, including billionaires such as Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates. Even with their luxury reputation, Medina and Hunts Point maintain a relaxed, charming atmosphere that makes them a beautiful place to take the family for an evening stroll or meet with friends at a local café.
In many ways, Medina and Hunts Point have a slow-paced, small-town atmosphere. That means for a night out for fine dining or dancing, you’ll likely want to make a short trip to the city. But for a casual meal or a fresh cup of coffee, Medina and Hunts Point have some great options that are beloved by locals. One favorite is Queen Bee Cafe, which uses locally-sourced ingredients and the best coffee beans around for its delicious menu of drinks, smoothies, crumpets, salads, and more.
Another great spot is Little Grandma’s Kitchen, which is popular for its selection of mouthwatering breakfast options, such as fresh burritos, sandwiches, scrambles, and more. When you need to pick up some essentials for a meal at home, stop by local staple Medina Market.
Medina and Hunts Point both offer unparalleled access to Lake Washington, making boating, kayaking, and paddleboarding popular options for residents, especially on warm summer days. You’ll also find picturesque parks dotted throughout town—like Medina Park, which features ponds, a playground, a walking trail, and more. Here you'll find private golf clubs like the Overlake Golf & Country Club and other great spots such as Viewpoint Park, the Fairweather Nature Preserve, and Medina Beach Park.
Something that many local families look forward to is Medina Days, when Medina Beach Park hosts a lively event featuring games, swimming, food trucks, an ice cream vendor, and an awe-inspiring fireworks show on the water. It’s just one of the many ways the Medina and Hunts Point communities come together to have fun and connect with one another.
