Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, where we scour Seattle's listings to see what your budget will get you across the city. Today we decided to find out what $500,000 can get you across the entire city. You tell us which place you'd put an offer on.
↑ Let's begin in First Hill where the new Luma building is offering a 648 square-foot condo for $494K (plus $381 HOA). Unit 1504 is a one-bedroom, one-bath unit and like all Luma condos it features nine-foot cceilings and expansive windows to take in the views. Living here will bring with it quite a few amenities, including a 24th floor rooftop amenity level, fitness center and pet lounge.
↑ Now we go to 4342 11th Avenue S in Beacon Hill where you'll find a 3-BR, 1.5-bath home asking $495K. Built in 1940, this 1,995 square-foot residence has rrefinished hardwoods, a new roof and new windows. Out back you'll find a one-car garage and a 360 square-foot shop with a well-maintained backyard nestled in-between. Asking $495K, this looks like a really solid spot for a young family to settle in.
↑ We head to Ballard next where there's a brand new townhouse at 5917 20th Avenue NW asking $495K. The 2-BR, 1.75-bath home checks in at 886 square-feet but manages to space it all out over three levels. There's the living & kitchen space on the main floor with access to a private yard, office/guestroom on the second floor, and master suite up on the third.
↑ It's off to Mount Baker where a modern 2013 construction at 2527 30th Avenue S just listed for $499K. It's 4 Star Built Green, so that's already one box ticked for eco-friendly folks. Interiors are super-bright and there's 1,480 square-feet of space to stretch out in amongst this 2-BR. Depending on your situation, that top-floor master could also work as a media room with deck access.
↑ Finally we head up to Lake City where a 3-BR, 1.75-bath home at 12515 37th Avenue NE is on the market asking $525K. It's 1930's home that's been renovated but still maintains a lot of that old-world charm, especially in the kitchen. Inside there's plenty of room to live (1,860 square feet) and even a large utility room/shop downstairs. Outside there's a west-facing deck and two-car detached garage. Certainly more of a choice for those looking for something a little more suburban.
