Welcome to Morgan Junction
Foodies and artists embraced with open arms.
This quaint, artsy, and food-centric neighborhood resides just south of North Admiral and west of Alki. The main attraction here is the many dining options available to its inhabitants.
What is now a thriving neighborhood was once not much of a community. In 1907
, two streetcar lines were connected to California Ave SR and SW Alaska St, provoking real estate agencies to open for business. The town became known as “The Junction.” Junction became a full-fledged business district by 1911 and since has become home to many companies and restaurants.
This neighborhood showcases homes of various architectural styles
, including Seattle Box, Craftsman, Bungalow, Tudor, Dutch Colonial, Mid-century, Modern, and more! Junction is located in West End, where the median home value sits at around $784K
. Many architecture firms can build your dream home, including McNelis Architects
, a company specializing in custom residential, multi-family lowrise, and small commercial projects.
