Last Week's Biggest Sales: Ted Bower Home Gets $1.69M


Listed for: $1.697M
Received: $1.697M
Size: 3-BR, 2-bath, 2,998 sq. ft.
Location: 411 Erie Avenue, Leschi
The Skinny: Someone was not messing around when it came to buying this 3-BR built by Theodore "Ted" Bower, a protege of Frank Lloyd Wright. Listed for $1.697M in October, it sold for exactly that last week. There's some real whimsy at play with the lighted glass steps in the master bedroom that brings levity to the design. Downstairs, floor-to-ceiling windows and high beamed ceilings bring in light & space for the remodeled kitchen and linear fireplace to shine. And that view...goodness.


Listed for: $1.328M
Received: $1.272M
Size: 4-BR, 3.25-bath, 3,170 sq. ft.
Location: 2310 41st Ave E, Madison Park
The Skinny: This charming 1927 remodel listed on October 1 for just over $1.3M and only needed a couple months to find a suitor before going pending. Lots of original details still in place but modern upgrades take things to the next level, such as the indoors/outdoors living room. Downstairs you get a full-bath and guest bedroom, office, wine cellar, laundry, and rec room with wood stove.

Received: $1.15M

Location: 2553 22nd Ave E, Montlake
The Skinny: Talk about a seller's market. Listing in November for just under a million, this 1925 French Tudor not only went pending within a week but it eventually sold for almost $200K over ask. This historic home has been beautifully-remodeled and given the breadth of rooms and proximity to good schools (for all ages), there's one very happy (and very well-off) family moving in.
