Newish On the Market – Delightful Greenwood Townhouse
Have you been looking for a new construction townhouse in North Seattle? Here is your chance! This home was completed and sold in May of 2017 and now it can be yours.
Our lovely clients purchased it brand new, but their family has grown too big. They are moving to Bellevue to make room for you to love this home! Let me give you a quick tour…
Walk in the front door to find two bedrooms and a full bath on the ground floor! This set up is perfect for guests, or a possibly conversion to a mother-in-law or Air BnB! The second bedroom has access to the parking at back.
Upstairs, on the main level, you’re set to expertly entertain! This is my favorite floor and I’ll tell you why. This open kitchen, dining and living room layout is full of light from floor-to-ceiling windows. Cook MasterChef-worthy meals in this brand new kitchen, with all stainless steel appliances. After dinner, warm away that fall weather in front of the fire. It’s gas powered and turns on with the flick of a switch! Also, there is a half bath on this floor, so your guests don’t need to go too far to powder their nose.
The third floor is where you’ll find a huge master suite with walk-in closet, separate toilet nook, and laundry at the end of the hall. There are also massive Eastern and Southern windows letting in tons of light, which is super necessary in these stormy Seattle seasons. No lack of vitamin D in this bedroom.
One of my favorite things about this level is that the access to the rooftop deck is separate from the master suite, so your friends don’t have to see your messy bed. From the roof you’ll be able to see the Olympic Mountains, Downtown Seattle AND the Space Needle! All this, and you’re a quick jaunt to Greenwood and Northgate. Commuting to downtown is a snap via the Rapid Ride E line or one of the many buses available within a few blocs.
In a few years time, the light rail will be down the street at Northgate! You’ll have easy access to all of downtown, as well as the airport. You can leave your car parked at home in its private parking spot out back.

Massive Price Drop at our West Seattle Huge Two Bedroom Condo (Now Only $425,000)
Welcome to The Granada, located in West Seattle‘s Alaska Junction. If you have not explored the Alaska Junction, you need to visit and see what all the hype is about.
The Alaska Junction has long been a core neighborhood on California Avenue, and home to diverse local businesses that cater to every walk of life. You will never lack for food options. Enjoy fine dining with a hearty steak at Jake’s Grill. Not in the mood for red meat? Try Mashikos, the award-winning sustainable sushi house. Bakery Nouveau and Husky Deli offer delicious baked goods and killer sandwiches when you’re looking for a quick bite.
But there is much more than food. Easy Street Records is kicking it old-school with vinyl records, CDs and DVDs. Menache & Sons Jewelry has been adorning patrons for over 45 years, and Shadowland is a fun-filled night spot.
Located just a few blocks away from all this goodness is The Granada. Perched on California Avenue, you are just steps away from all the action. Retreat back to a stunning two-bedroom, two-bath condo and enjoy peace and quiet. This condo is super spacious and boasts a beautiful view of the Puget Sound, right from the living room. Since the living room is southwest-facing, it gets plenty of natural light throughout the day. In fact, the various spaces of the condo receive light from every direction.
Commuting in and out of downtown Seattle is a breeze. The Rapid Ride C Line is also located right on California Avenue for quick access. Is public transit, not your thing? Well, this unit has its own parking spot along with a storage unit. Cats are welcome here, so make sure you bring Fluffy along.

And Another Price Drop at our Space Needle View Pied-de-Terre in Belltown (Now Only $340,000)
Retreat to your private oasis high in the trees above Belltown. Entertain guests in your spacious living room with a full Space Needle view. It’s the perfect spot to watch New Year’s fireworks!
Feel all warm and cozy with these true cherry hardwood floors throughout the kitchen and living room. This BRAND NEW kitchen with custom cherry cabinets, granite countertops and all new stainless steel appliances is ready to transform all your market goodies into delicious meals. Were you expecting a full-sized dishwasher at this price point? It’s here! Massive light-grabbing windows allow you to watch the seasons change in the trees right outside while still allowing for total privacy from your neighbors.
This home is the perfect pied-a-terre for someone working downtown who wants to escape Seattle for the weekend.
With no rental cap and a six-month minimum lease makes this condo a great rental property. The HOA is very passionate about keeping the building maintained, while also keeping the dues in check. Fewer frills like wine lockers and pools mean lower monthly dues. Laundry is easily accessible in the basement along with some work out machines in the common room. That’s a nice touch.
Want to impress your friends with downtown views? If the Space Needle view wasn’t enough, you can take them up to the roof, where you can show off Puget Sound, Downtown, The Olympic Mountains, and even Lake Union if you squint right.
When I say this building is in middle of it all, I mean it. Nearly every bus running downtown can be picked up from 3rd Ave at Ceder St and from there you can easily catch the light rail to the airport. Headed East/West? Then walk to the other side of the block to pick up the #8. Moving around town could not be easier.
Want to stay a little closer to home? Belltown has everything you need. Coffee, clothes, theater, movies, parks, museums, food, and booze are all steps away from the front door of 2700 4th Ave. At this price, it’s hard to turn down such an amazing value.
