Update: South Seattle Newly Built Tri-Level Unit: $375,000
1537 18th Ave S
South Seattle has really made a comeback as neighborhoods like Beacon Hill and Columbia City have been growing with popular green-built homes and newly built complexes over the last 5+ years. This 2 bed 2.5 bath unit freshly built South of Judkins Park is a good example of a mid-range unit available in the area, currently listed for $375,000.
It isn’t my favorite, but it does have some features that stand out making it competitive for the neighborhood. While the exterior isn’t the most appealing, the unit has an expansive private rooftop deck with views for entertaining. The kitchen is a bit small for a 1,490 sf space, but is equipped with new stainless steel appliances, granite slab counter tops and soft close maple cabinets. The designer tile work in the bathroom is a bit busy with the blocky sinks, but I enjoy the dark hardwood flooring throughout, and it looks like there is plenty of room for a decent garden out front. This unit also comes with 1 carport, and a partially fenced front area.
