This week our favorite divalicious listing is presented by Ron Pederson of the Capitol Hill Coldwell Banker Bain Office. Ron’s exclusive unit in the 1310 E Union Building gives our savvy Capitol Hill buyers a rare opportunity to own a swanky unit in an award winning sustainable building. Built in 2001 by builders Dunn & Hobbs the building contains only twelve residential units, providing the dwellers a private living community. While the buildings occupants are able to live the quiet life, the buildings proximity to the Pike/Pine Corridor offers plenty of opportunity to keep in the know for the entire hood.
The live/work/play theme that is so well accomplished in this unit will resonate with any urban dweller. The spacious sleeping area contains a bright sitting area next to the south facing windows allowing time to relax and reflect as you start your day. On those warm mornings or cool evenings step out onto the balcony and take in the fresh air.
The workspace in this unit seamlessly connects the sleeping area with the living space, while at the same time dividing them into three distinct areas. The walnut built-ins not only add needed storage and an efficient workspace, but also a level of richness that is often desired in industrial design.
My favorite part of the unit is the main living space. It is bursting with light that sends warm energy and calm vibrations throughout the entire unit. The open floor plan allows for a fabulous place to throw intimate gatherings or a high-brow soiree. The roll up door near the dining area provides you with the opportunity to have a sidewalk café experience right at home.
This place is perfect for all types of lifestyles, from the single professional to the urban couple. Units in this building don’t come to market very often and wont last. At $615k this baby is priced to sell. If you love exciting, upscale living then you definitely don’t want to miss this.
