Penthouse Atop Seattle's Seaboard Building Asks $1.75M


When most people think of notable Seattle buildings, they think of the Space Needle, Columbia Center or Smith Tower. But you could make a good case for the Seaboard Building as one of the city's most historic and under-appreciated structures. The trapezoidal-shaped, Beaux Arts-style building, adorned with brick and terra cotta, was completed in 1909 when it was known as the Northern Bank and Trust Building. All these years later, the National Historic Place has been turned into condos and commercial space (of course) and high above them all is Unit 1001, which just hit the market asking $1.75M (plus $2,137/month HOA dues). The 2-BR unit is an eclectic mix of styles, featuring exposed brick in some spots, custom cabinetry in the kitchen and a covered porch out back for indoor/outdoor access. There's 2,644 square-feet at play here and it's most notable in the extremely-long master bedroom. Not only would this be a unique perch atop a historic Seattle building but it's also going to be a killer place to watch the next Seattle sports championship parade.
