Westlake loft with eclectic, industrial flair
Situated facing east toward Lake Union, 1707 Dexter Ave N offers high-end touches, an industrial vibe and plenty of space for your book collection. The home includes one lofted bedroom, one-and-a-half baths and 885-square-feet of space. Perched alongside one of Seattle’s favorite watering holes, Lake Union Park, Westlake Cycle Track and the Cheshiahud Lake Union Loop are all easily accessible. Nearby attractions also include the Museum of History & Industry and The Center for Wooden Boats.
Located in The Block—a boutique condo community—the space was built in 2009 using board form concrete and exposed beams. Stained and polished concrete floors offer radiant heat underfoot throughout the home. The kitchen is bedecked in custom plywood cabinetry that makes the most of every inch, as well as commercial-grade appliances. A dining island can comfortably accommodate eight people and provides a delineation between uses on the open-concept main floor.
Soaring ceilings in the living area reach heights of 16 feet, and one entire wall is covered by floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. The living room’s other focal point is a spiral staircase to the second-floor bedroom, full bathroom and catwalk. An industrial, factory-style window, like those on the home’s exterior, separates the bedroom from the rest of the home. A curtain closes across it to provide additional privacy, when needed. When uncovered, the bookshelf, catwalk and living area are all within view.
In addition to a walk-in closet with built in shelves and cabinetry, the upstairs full-bathroom offers plenty of storage space, additional custom plywood cabinetry and a Calcutta marble countertop.
