Des Moines Waterfront Real Estate

Located on the eastern shores of Puget Sound, Des Moines waterfront real estate owners enjoy convenient access to Seattle and Tacoma, living halfway between the two major cities. This is one of the few places along the shoreline where the topography allows access to the water, with the city’s recreational marina, including moorage, boat launching and pier fishing situated there. The community of Des Moines packs a lot into its six square miles, with all the services one could need right in this little area, and the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport just minutes away.

Des Moines Waterfront Real Estate

Des Moines waterfront property owners can look forward to being steps away from the picturesque boardwalk along the water and lots of shopping opportunities with multiple small town retailers. An oasis for outdoor recreation, owning Des Moines waterfront real estate not only offers spectacular water views, but a wide range of activities from kayaking and paddle boarding to sailing and diving.

Waterfront homes make up a large percentage of the luxury real estate in Des Moines, though the city has lots of outstanding waterfront property that is relatively close to Seattle, yet just far enough to make them a great value. You’ll find a wide range of waterfront topography as well, with homes that include everything from flat low bank lots to higher bank lots, with the latter being more predominant.

Des Moines waterfront real estate primarily includes west-facing homes which enjoy glorious sunsets along with views of the soaring Olympic Mountains that loom over Vashon Island across Puget Sound. Some of those views stretch even further, including the marina and fishing pier all the way to Tacoma and the South Sound. No matter what your pick, you’re sure to enjoy the tranquil feeling of living in a secluded Des Moines waterfront neighborhood.
