Georgetown's first settlement was founded on September 27, 1851 but it wasn't until January 8th, 1094 when the city incorporated. Its reason for doing so? To fight against prohibition (some things never change). In 1910 it was annexed into Seattle and to this day it remains one of the best places in town to get a beer.
As Georgetown celebrates 110 years of official existence, let's take a look around the neighborhood to see what's for rent and sale.
If you're looking for a unique living experience and have some money to spend, check out this industrial loft in the Old Rainier Brewery. For $1,900/month, you get 18-foot ceilings, an open kitchen, washer/dryer and outside deck & rooftop access. The space is designated live/work, so it might work for small businesses or artists, too.
How about a carriage house as a condo alternative? This private 860-square-foot space next to the Georgetown Castle is "cute and cozy" per the listing. At $275K, it's also approved for HomePath mortgage and Homepath Renovation Financing, so it might not take much to move you in.
If you're looking for an affordable rental, how bout this 900 square-foot loft for $900/month? Located in the Julius Horton building above All City Coffee, this corner unit offers high ceilings, a kitchenette and newly done wood floors. Utilities included in rent, always a plus.
