Live on Lake Union for Only $499k

While out boating around Lake Union tonight the home that received the most discussion was not this jaw dropping ultramodern Portage Bay floating home or the two story floating home on the Roanke Reef dock (both homes priced well above a million dollars). But rather was an almost quaint $499k, 1,050 square foot, 2 bedroom, 1 bath on north Lake Union at 2326 N Pacific St.

The appeal? Great views on Lake Union. High ceilings. Big deck. And only a half million dollar price tag. The catch? It is a little small. And no garage.

It last sold in 2003 for $382,500. Offers are being reviewed Monday. It will sell above asking is our guess.

Here’s what one of Redfin’s agents who saw it in person had to say:

Very unique home – located on busy street. Lots windows, lots of light. The second bedroom is upstairs in a loft like situation with no privacy door or walls – open to the living room below. Large(ish) kitchen with laminate counters. Skylights in bedroom, bathroom and kitchen bring in extra light. Large beautiful deck off the master bedroom. Nice water and space needle views.




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, 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.

    Wow that’s absolutely gorgeous. I would look at this if I hadn’t just bought a condo. What’s not to like here? The price seems reasonable, knowing you are making a tradeoff for limited space and a somewhat busy road.
