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 $600,000 can get you all around town. You tell us which lease you'd sign.
Let's begin in Roosevelt where you can get a 3-BR, 1.5-bath brick beauty for $599K. This 1931 home has been kept in great condition but still radiates some of that old Seattle charm. The basement is ready to go to be furnished and the backyard looks primed for potential gardening.
Next up we head to Loyal Heights where a 1944 3-BR also just hit the market asking $599K. This one's a bit more boxed in by surrounding buildings but it's still full of nice features like the booth-style kitchen table, basement space, and urban garden out back. Or is that front?
On to Belltown where you can get a 988-square-foot 2-BR condo for $599K (plus $943/month in HOAs). This southwest corner unit gets you great views from the 17th floor, especially from both of the balconies. Inside, lots of nice features including granite & glass counter tops, Brazilian oak & Italian Bottoccino marble floors.
Now we go to Eastlake where a 2-BR condo inside a 1926 boutique brick building is available for $599K. Really beautiful details throughout. The coved ceilings, glass knobs and leaded glass evoke a sense of time while the lower-level master suite offers a lot of possibilities in terms of space.
Finally we head to Jackson Park in North Seattle where we can get a 2,080 square-foot 3-BR for $590K. a 1946 home that certainly still has a lot of that same look and appeal, but there some great woodwork inside and well-manicured landscaping outside. Lots of potential for a 2.0 version of this place.
