Open Houses This Weekend
There are 98 open houses to visit this weekend in Seattle if you are so inclined. Then again, you might be too tired because you took advice from the Stranger and spent Friday night dancing around with performers in “sound suits” that created beasts of pulsating color at SAM Remix. Which would be understandable because it sounds totally cool. Just do your best to visit one or a few open houses, for example:
1017 Minor #1103
I really like the eclectic formality of the interiors in this Gainsborough 2 bedroom on First Hill. Offered at $417.5K, the condo is on the 11th floor of a 1930’s steel and concrete high rise. Translation: great views of the Cascades, Capitol Hill, and Lake Union.
2324 1st Ave #208
Saturday 12-2PM, Sunday 1-4PM
This 660 square foot loft in the Austin Bell building is described in the listing as the perfect pied-a-terre, but I’m not sure why someone wouldn’t want to make it their full-time home? Is it too small, secluded, and tucked away in this historic Belltown building? You make the call. It is currently listed at $254.5K, and was last purchased in 2005 for $261K.
2120 8th Ave N #302
There’s something very art deco about the fireplace in this 1 bedroom, 1.5 bath at Regatta Condominiums. This unit has been listed for a lengthy 233 days, but the price has also dropped $100K in that time. Currently priced at $399K, this Queen Anne condo might be worth evaluating – especially those Lake Union views.
