The Gayle is a three-story building at 516 E Thomas Street in Capitol Hill. That's not that tall but it's tall enough that you can't see the roof from down below. If you could, you'd see a rounded protrusion sticking out with a sliding glass door. You might also wonder what in the world that leads to.
Turns out it leads right into Unit 304, which is on the market asking $350K.
The 600-square-foot one-bedroom vintage loft has an actual front door that you can use to get to the refurbished living space. You'll have to step up a ladder to get to that sleeping loft that juts out of the roof. The unit also includes plenty of storage, in-unit washer/dryer, and what looks a decent-sized kitchen.
The listing also says there's "potential for a private rooftop deck," which we assume means the literal roof of the 1917 building. The seller told Urbnlivn all about the value of that space.
Loft area offers fantastic southern exposure into unit, while its location in the building (NE Corner) means it is insulated from street noise. Exclusive roof top access is a huge bonus with many dinners/drinks have been enjoyed on it while soaking in the view of the mountains and the Space Needle.
Open houses will be going on all weekend. Given the way the market's been working, you'll probably want to show up and make an offer if you want it.
