Puget Sound Waterfront

Puget Sound is the saltwater inlet from the Pacific Ocean which passes Seattle and heads southward to Olympia.  West Seattle, the North Seattle shoreline, and many islands have residences along the Sound.  This is the closest feel to an ocean beach that you'll find in the Seattle area.

Puget Sound waterfront is where people moving to Seattle feel like they're buying a home on the ocean.  Technically just an inland inlet, the Sound is such a large body of water that it can feel like it's oceanfront.  Orca whales, schools of salmon, seabirds, and saltwater beaches give the island-dotted Sound a feel that's hard to match elsewhere.  

Waterfront Puget Sound homes in Seattle are located along the city's Western shore.  From The Highlands in the North end and travelling South, you can find waterfront homes in Broadview, Blue Ridge/North Beach, the Ballard area, Magnolia, and into downtown and Belltown's condos (though most condos are across the street from the water here).

Southwest of downtown you have Alki Beach with many more condos just across the street from the shore.  Near Beach Drive, homes begin appearing again on the waterfront side.  West Seattle has many neighborhoods heading South that sit on Puget Sound shoreline.

South of Seattle there are many waterfront locations as well.  Normandy Park, Des Moines, Dash Point, Browns Point, Tacoma, University Place, and Gig Harbor are all within a Seattle commute distance and have waterfront homes with beautiful views.

North of Seattle you'll find waterfront houses in Shoreline, Innis Arden, Edmonds, Mukilteo, and further into Snohomish County.  There are also plenty of islands nearby including Bainbridge Island, Vashon, and Whidbey Island.
