Apparently not too many folks were out shopping for condos last week, as most of us took a siesta for the days following the 4th of July holiday, but those who were came out guns smokin, with units in the Olive 8, a Portage Bay beauty built in the 1920′s, and a two bedroom in One Pacific Tower.
2000 1st Ave * 1001
A 10th floor two bed 2 bath unit in the chic Urban One Pacific Tower sold on Friday for $575,000. The design of the building allows all units to face west, with build-outs overlooking the fabulous Elliot Bay in practically every room. I particularly love the layout of this kitchen, with the natural stone counter top wrapping around to mirror the shape of the huge bay windows. If this apartment tower peeked your curiosity, you’ll be interested to know that the sweet built out unit on the 17th floor is actually still on the market!
3100 Franklin Ave E
This 2 bed 1.75 bath townhome in Wembley Court made the list this week solely because of the impressive renovations! Originally built in 1924, the exteriors still resemble the architecture from the time, while the interiors feature all modern day amenities.
The kitchen is dainty at best, but has a cute sunny window seat, and the master suite has a nice skylight and spacious closet. $321,500 for 1,231 sf in Portage Bay sounds like a steal too!
737 Olive Wy #2402
Another unit in Olive 8 sold this week! Now over 75% of the building is sold, and this 2 bed 2 bath went for $815,000 after less than two months on the market. I love how these floor plans are layed out, allowing maximum natural light, not only because of the stunning views, but the eco-chic design of the building and amenities.
