As Seattle hit record high temperatures last week, people were most likely taking a dip in the Sound or running through their sprinklers instead of house hunting, and the stats indicate sales are beginning to plateau as we approach September. Last week 32 townhomes and condos went pending, including one in Cristala, two in Olive 8, and one in the Historic Maryland in Capitol Hill. Ballard and Capitol Hill continue to top the sales, and units in the Central district seem to be gaining popularity as well.
7406 Linden Ave N
This Greenlake 3 bed, 2 bath townhome went pending just shy of two months on the market, and has an artfully designed open floor plan. The master has two huge closets, vaulted ceilings, and a private walk-out deck where tenants will enjoy views out to Greenlake and Mt Rainier. The living room is huge enough to host a block, and I especially like the contrast in the deep espresso stained cabinetry against the light flooring; and who wouldn’t be smitten with a built in wine fridge?
1111 23rd Ave S
I chose this 3 bed 2.25 townhome, not only because of the unique structuring, but also to showcase what the Central District has to offer these days. Located more specifically in the Judkins Park area, this townhome is a stone’s throw from the Atlantic neighborhood, which has really been growing in popularity for first home buyers in the past few years. Love the lighting on the main floor, and abundance of natural light from all of the windows throughout. This unit has alot of character with a corner fireplace on the main level, a huge walk in closet in the master, and adorable his and her sinks in the upstairs bathroom, and sold for $289,950 within one month.
1530 NW Market Street #811
Two units sold in the Hjarta last week, and this one was the last 8th floor penthouse available. The other unit that sold was on the 3rd floor, and both new tenants will likely take pride in living in this LEED certified Silver building, (equipped with a communal rooftop BBQ and pea patch). This building is perfect for the green thumbed yogi, as the condominium’s fitness center has an attached private yoga room just for tenants. I love the cedar used in both the bathroom and kitchen cabinets, and I’m not sure if tenants would actually use the communal patio on Market, but it looks like it could be a prime people watching setup. The 1 bed 1 bath Penthouse sold for just shy of $330,000.
