Colorful Artist’s Home/Studio in Ballard
Artist loft living but in a large single-family home form factor makes 7058 24th Ave NW truly one of a kind.
Built in 1922, it was purchased by an artist in 1998 as both her home and studio and it has been entirely transformed.
At 4,388 square feet, there’s tons of space for the two bedrooms and 2.5 baths.
There’s a great write-up, with photos, on Houzz if you want all the backstory, Vision Pays Off in a Vibrant Live-Work Space.
The couple found a 1922 building that Ockerlander describes as a “big beige box in Ballard.” “I loved that it was a large, plain box on a corner,” she says. It had the space inside, and it had space outside. All it needed was vision — and an awful lot of work. With the elbow grease of Ockerlander and Brookfield, the help of architect Bob Kovalenko of Kovalenko Hale Architects and the efforts of Lunde Construction, the structure was transformed over 16 months into a vibrant live-work space.
It is priced at $1.6m with offers due Tuesday, October 8th.
