Listed for: $2.4M
Size: 2-BR, 2-bath, 5,310 sq. ft. condo
Location: 715 2nd Ave, #1902, Downtown
The Skinny: Last week's list of 25 most expensive homes for sale in Seattle featured a penthouse unit in Millennium Tower for $8M. This one doesn't quite reach those heights (financially and literally), this one is no slouch either. Last sold in 2011 for $1.95M, this massive 19th Floor unit certainly benefitted from a strong downtown condo market, though not as much as the seller was hoping. Pretty hard for a place with those kinds of West-facing windows to stay on the market for too long.
Listed for: $1.525M
Size: 4-BR, 4-bath, 9,231 sq. ft. house
Location: 5408 S Holly St, Seward Park
The Skinny: Last sold for just over $1M in 2005, this 2002-built NW Contemporary Craftsman has been on and off the market since 2012, finally finding the right buyer in August. What it lacks in uniqueness it makes up for in sheer size. Nice touch up top with a cupola that can be an office, art studio or guest room. And down below there's a media room and full MIL. Guess who's hosting all the family get-togethers from now on?
Listed for: $1.475M
Size: 4-BR, 3-bath, 5,800 sq. ft. house
Location: 3006 43rd Ave W, Magnolia
The Skinny: It never seems to be smooth and easy for this 1941 Magnolia home. List and delisted eleven times between 2006 and 2009, it eventually sold that year for $769K and then again for $918K in July. Back on the market in May of 2014, the price was chopped from $1.475M three times before settling on $1.225M, the eventual sale price. The new owner gets to enjoy a massive west-facing deck with custom gas fire pit as well as a back deck for private lounging and gardening.
