Light-filled penthouse loft in South Lake Union
401 9th Ave. N #607 is a modern penthouse loft in the popular South Lake Union neighborhood. Built in 2009, the 980-square-foot home includes an open-concept bedroom, one-and-a-half bathrooms, a dedicated office/den and multiple outdoor areas. The top-floor corner unit sits six stories above Seattle’s bustling cityscape, just steps from downtown, Belltown, the waterfront and the Space Needle. This unique property, one of just 99 units in the Veer Lofts building, earned itself a Walk Score of 97.
The home’s prominent features include 18-foot ceilings covered in bright timber beams, as well as double-height windows. The southeast-facing home is flooded with natural sunlight, the warmth of which is balanced by cool concrete floors. Past the entry, a functional open office space provides plenty of room to get work done. From there, the hallway leads to the heart of the space—the open kitchen and living room. The u-shaped kitchen includes an eat-in bar, stone countertops and stainless appliances—including a dishwasher. The adjoined living room is defined by its height, lined by two-story windows and a door leading to a sunny patio.
Overlooking the living area, the lofted bedroom is accessible via an industrial staircase. The bedroom includes an ensuite bathroom with full-size tub, as well as extra space for seating or dressing. Off the bedroom, a large window opens onto a private, peaceful patio—an idyllic respite after a busy day.
Unit #607 comes with a secure parking spot and a private storage unit. Community-wide amenities at the LEED-certified building include a rooftop deck, a pet-washing station and bike storage.
