We look back at five our our favorite homes from January and see how they’re doing on the market. Do you want to cocoon in the country or wrap the city around you?
Sure, this two bed, three bath, 2,442 square foot condo high above the city may list for $2,995,000; but have you checked out the ingenious wall-bed? Luxury is luxurious, but this unit proves that grand vistas, phenomenal service, and an excellent location may not be as distinctive as a wall bed/office/library that is probably less than one percent of the price.
Get closer to ground level in a townhome designed by a star architect, Ralph Anderson, and enjoy a price drop of $154,000 that brings this listing down to $2,996,000. Naturally, it has some gigantic windows, as well as two beds, two and a half baths, and 3,050 square feet. A view of the Space Needle is for when you want to look outside, and a library for when you want to look inside.
For something more spiritual and a bit goth, try the Dockton Church on Vashon Island. The $579,000 package includes gracefully arched windows, the serious steeple, a church bell, and an interior that probably had true cathedral ceilings. The addition of a floor has turned it into a two bed, two and a half bath, 2,920 square foot residence. It also comes with a schoolhouse and tarot room.
Head up to San Juan Island for a NW Contemporary that was designed by the firm that renovated the Aquarium. It is a three bed, two and a quarter bath, 2,608 square foot waterfront home on a half an acre. Listed at $995,000, you get two houses connected by a solarium, a welcome feature on grey or misty days. Consider the Sound your personal moat, and you have your own sanctuary.
No surprise, rain shadow homes are popular this time of year, and Sequim is the rain shadow capitol. Listed at $195,000 is a one bed, two bath, two story cabin with 720 square feet. That makes each floor tiny, and cozier. Whatever you’re hunting for, it can’t be far away. Artistry makes this property unique. Someone had fun being creative, and had a studio and a quarter acre to play with.
