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 $700,000 can get you specifically in Ballard. You tell us which place you'd buy.
Let's begin with the 4-BR, 2-bath home for sale at 1518 NW 59th Street asking $675K. This 1926 Cape Cod bungalow has been lovingly-restored and now features a remodeled kitchen, radiant floor-heating in the main bedroom, and a lower level that could be anything from a hangout to an office to a MIL unit. Just five blocks from Market Street as well.
Next we head over to 1519 NW 64th Street where a 2013-built 3-BR, 2-bath townhome is available for $675K. 4-Star Built Green by DC Granger, the tri-level home takes advantage of an open floorplan and extremely bright spaces. The sundeck up top provides stunning views from your private perch and the view from your master bedroom patio isn't too shabby either.
Now we stop at 2213 NW 61st Street where the 4-BR, 2-bath home located here is available for $699K. While the vintage home looks like it from the outside (apparently originally-built in 1900), the interiors have been remodeled and look fresh throughout. Some of the standout features include eco-friendly bamboo flooring and two vaulted-ceiling bedrooms with exposed beams.
To 2658 NW 59th Street we go where you can find a 2-BR, 2-bath townhome for $725K. Right away we're struck by the color in this one as so many modern townhomes these days are some combination of white, wood and more white. Playhouse Design Group definitely brought the playfullness with them, not to mention some nice features such as a Miele dishwasher, Bertazonni gas range/cooktop, and high-efficiency Bosch hot water system.
Finally we end up at 1508 NW 57th Street where a 3-BR, 2-bath home by Noren Development just hit the market asking $729K. They pack a lot into 1,719 square feet, taking advantage of a very open floorplan on the main floor and then giving each bedroom a nice view or unique identity. Just two blocks from Market Street and right around the corner from 15th Avenue, you're in the thick of it.
