Divas Announce | Stylish Jackson Place Townhouse
Style meets function at this contemporary townhouse built in 2008 and located in Seattle’s hidden gem of a hood, Jackson Place. Now, I know what you are thinking. Where the heck is Jackson Place? Just go Southeast up the hill from Seattle’s International District, between South Jackson and Sam Smith Park and there it is! Although this hood is often referred to as Judkins Park or the Central Area – it definitely has its own distinct identity. This hood has a blossoming arts community thanks to Artspace Hiawatha and the availability of affordable studio spaces. Plus, it also has a growing local businesses district. Here’s your chance to get a hot home for a cool price before the rest of Seattle discovers just what they are missing!
Reason 1: Functionality – Who doesn’t love a roof top deck? OK this home does not have one. But what it does have is a cute shady front porch and 1380 square feet of well designed space. The open main floor actually has room for a dining table – and chairs! There are two full baths upstairs – which means no fighting for the shower. The master bedroom has a killer loft space that offers tons of possibilities. (See Reason 3) And there is a real garage. One that fits a car. Not a smart car or a scooter – an normal size car. Even an SUV!
Reason 2: Style – We Divas love our fair share of “Dwell Magazine” style modern homes. But even great design becomes boring when it’s ubiquitous. The more traditional style is refreshing to find amongst the sea of grey hardy plank boxes. The key features we love are the wide plank hardwoods on the main floor and the classic kitchen design. And, of course, the loft! (I’m really loving this loft so let’s talk about that next.)
Reason 3: The Loft Space – Loft spaces can be very cool and often extremely awkward to use. This loft space is beyond functional; great light, real stairs and good ceiling height. There are so many useful and fun ways you can enjoy this space: office, TV room, dressing room, kid play area, art space, craft room, yoga room. Let your creativity run wild!
Reason 4: Location – This small but mighty hood offers a tight knit community vibe and urban feel without the crazy home prices of Capitol Hill or the Central Area. At My World Dance and Fitness you will find a slew of dance classes: Salsa, West African Dance, Ballet, Funk Aerobics. You name it – they teach it! When you need a pick-me-up after class you can mosey next store to Cafe Weekend and grab a treat and a cup of java.
Reason 5: Commute – Practically down the street from the I-5 North onramp and minutes to downtown, I-5 South or I-90. Frankly, there aren’t many hood that offer as easy access to Highways and Byways as this hood. Now let’s talk transit. This home will also be a few short blocks to 2 stops on the First Hill Streetcar – which is scheduled to open this year. How cool is that!
