Nicholas Court Condos at 15th and Union

Thanks to Marce for the heads up on, 1413 15th Ave #1. It’s a $700k, 1,262 sq. ft. townhouse at 15th and union:

Marce had this to say:

Here’s an article on the architect, Seeing The Light | Architects at home. I think this would be a rare example of someone closing in this time period who could sell now without a loss. These are rarely on the market long. The three single bedroom units that have sold in the last four years had an avg. DOM of 6.6. And the photos don’t do these units justice. They are one of the very rare examples of nicely done townhomes. Good layout + light (+ light industrial look & feel) = Yay for good design in Seattle!

The seller certainly enjoys DWR :).

About Matt Goyer

I love condos, lofts, floating homes, new construction and mid-century moderns so much so that since starting this blog in 2006 I've written over 2,000 blog posts about them!

For years I resisted becoming a real estate agent preferring to be a marketing executive at Redfin but after leaving Redfin (after seven years!) I caved in the spring of 2014 and became a broker. So if you need help finding that "Urbnlivn-style" place or selling your home email me at matt@urbnlivn.com, I'd be happy to help you.

Prior to Urbnlivn and Redfin, I worked at Microsoft after graduating from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Mathematics with a major in computer science.

You can also find me on Twitter, @MattGoyer, or LinkedIn.

    Nice places, but I'm not sure I agree with the realtors optimism. Look at how many modern homes are unsold on the inner city market right now in the $1m price bracket.

    e.g. MLS 28197552 in Queen Anne is $1.195m for a much larger, non condo modern property and it's been sitting on the market since Dec 2007 with a huge markdown.

    These are great places and the location is really good, however negotiations would be in order. I think they will hang out longer than six days and/or, the price would be negotiated downward but still at a comfortable margin for the owner. I don't see a “loss”, but I don't if the expectation of that appreciation level or return in the current market holds water. I can only imagine that they used the nearby gProject townhomes as comps, however the green bells and whistles and other attributes of those would not make them a good comp. Who knows, maybe it will be sold by the end of the weekend.

    these were designed/built by a great local architect. And the location is awesome. Too bad the new “Hi, I'm Chloe” apartment building is blocking their western views and afternoon sun

    My comment about the folks being able to sell now w/out a loss was with respect to the 1 bed units. Those were sold between $300-$360K back in '05-'07.
    This one, well, we'll see how things go for the seller at this price point.
