Buy an east view, get sunrises, and sit in the shade during the heat of the day. With this 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment, you also get to watch the world of Lake Union with its boats and planes, and fireworks - probably not all at the same time. For $455,000 you get a 1,312 square foot apartment that was built in 1985, which may explain that particular shade of porcelain in the bath - or maybe that's just back in style again. Wait long enough and it happens. The kitchen looks updated. Appliances usually don't last three decades, so that's a refreshing upgrade. The layout is unchanged, for good reason. A sunken living room means the wet bar behind it gets a better view too. No reason for the bartender to miss the show. The rest of the time, the place is conveniently located to the lake, downtown, and Fremont - and maybe that traffic corridor explains the bars on the windows. Gotta be secure. Right?
