Mid-Century Modern Penthouse on First Hill
A penthouse unit at The Talisman just came onto the market. If you like an open layout with lots of natural light and views of Downtown Seattle , this is worth a look.
The 2-bedroom and 1.75-bath unit is listed at $599,950. It last sold for $575,000 in October 2005. The top of the Redfin listing says the unit’s square footage is 1,432, though the finished sq. ft. is listed at 1,196. I wonder if the seller is counting the outdoor deck. That would make a difference in the price per square foot, though the overall price is reasonable for the size, proximity to downtown, and top-floor location. The HOAs are $800 per month.
From the pictures, it looks like this is the penthouse unit in the northwest corner of the 1965 building at Terry Ave & Union. I love views but I personally would not enjoy looking into or having folks look in from the nearby Elecktra condos to the west and the Meridian Tower to the north. At least the pull-down shades look nice…
