Artistry and creativity are at the heart of this open floor plan unit within a historic Seattle building. Located in Georgetown, the building is an artist co-op, which means it’s filled with photographers, painters, ceramicists, sculpturers, and many other creative types. So it’s a building requirement that whoever moves into this unit must also be an artist or creative.

Built in 1907, the building was previously used as a shoe manufacturing facility. Since then, it has undergone a wide array of renovations. The 1,475-square-foot unit currently for sale has an all-new kitchen, along with a remodeled bathroom and refinished wood floors.

The unit is a loft, with one large room encompassing the bedroom, living area, dining area, and kitchen, and another room containing the bathroom. It comes with a utility room and washer and dryer, along with access to the building’s rooftop deck, which offers stunning views of downtown Seattle. Internet and parking are free.

Whoever moves in will have plenty of chances to socialize with their neighbors, and may even get to see the other residents’ art and showcase their own: There are movie nights held in the parking lot and building-wide barbecues on the roof, and twice a year the co-op participates in the neighborhood’s art walk.

707 South Snoqualmie Street Unit 4B is listed for $485,000 and for sale by owner. Those interested can contact Easton Richmond at neweinrich@gmail.com.
