*SOLD* Northgate Nest

The Nest Of Northgate

Wait, did you say you want a spacious condo, close to upcoming lightrail, that was totally remodeled and move-in ready?   Cause I found it!!!!

Welcome to your Northgate Nest.  A stylish and spacious condo in an ideal location.  Talk about location… You are just a ten minute stroll to the upcoming Northgate light rail station.  Less than half a mile from Target, and less than 4 blocks from the on-ramp to I-5.   Park your car in your assigned, covered parking space and explore your tree-lined neighborhood on foot.  You are so close to shopping, coffee, restaurants and parks.

Now let’s talk about this dreamy interior!  Brand new flooring, brand new kitchen and TWO recently remodeled bathrooms.   The kitchen is HGTV worthy, with beautiful blue and white cabinets, white marbled counter-tops, and stainless appliances.   This kitchen even has an under-mount sink and window right about the sink so you can look out on the world while you prep food and wash dishes.

Layer in the 6 large closets, the two updated bathrooms and in-unit washer/dryer, and you have all the things that make this condo feel like HOME.

What I LOVED About Living Here:

– Window seats! Reading, dog hangout, plant area, additional seating. Love them!
– Balcony – Big size and covered so I had it furnished and was hanging out/grilling year round
– Big/corner unit living room with so much natural light. Really great during sunny days and winter alike to get that vitamin D
– Looking out from living room/balcony was a bunch of trees so it was peaceful (rather than looking out onto parking/street)
– External entrance – no common areas is a plus
– Fireplace – cozy wood burning and so nice in the winter
– Storage! Outdoor storage was a game changer for camping/holiday stuff!

SOLD – Dreamy Mid Century Rambler

I’ve waited my entire career to bring you a house this special

 

Meet the crown jewel of Crown Hill:

The perfect blend of original mid-century elements and modern updates.   Built by famed builder Lagerquist, this home has had only 3 owners in all of its years.   Gleaming hardwood floors.  Brick, wood-burning fireplace.   Clean lines and curved plaster moldings.  The attention to detail in this home is remarkable!

From the hand-carved solid wood front door to the tasteful full remodel of both bathrooms, this home is a show-stopper from every angle.  Loving maintained and improved, this home is the definition of move-in ready.

The kitchen really helps set this home apart from all the rest.   It has escaped the bad remodels that many homes of this era have had to endure, and is the perfect balance of original details, such as the real wood cabinets and original hardware, and modern upgrades.  New stainless appliances really compliment the vintage charm of this large and thoughtfully laid out kitchen.

Hannah and Tim Get to STAY in the Neighborhood!

  So often, first-time home buyers end up leaving the neighborhood they live in, searching for more space and some affordability.   Well, not Hannah and Tim.  These two are die hard lower Queen Anne people.  They know all the baristas and the grocery clerks and the neighborhood “characters”.  They love their walk to work and being surrounded by the vibrancy of the city.   So when they decided to buy a condo, it was Queen Anne or NOTHING!

Hannah and Tim smiling posed in front of a brick wall

  We wasted no time touring all the available condos in lower Queen Anne that met our criteria.   We only had to see 4 places to know we had found THE ONE.  This condo had it all.  Tons of space.   Newer construction and a well-funded HOA.   Views of the Space Needle from their private balcony.  A fireplace, big kitchen with a gas stove and an actual laundry room IN the unit.  After sleeping on it, these kids decided to go for it and put in an offer!

 

  To make a good story even better, these kids happened to be buying during that brief window that favored buyers.  Not only did they get the lowest price for any unit in the building in the last 3 years (you might remember this building, it’s been in the Seattle Living Spaces family before), AND they were able to get the seller to give them some credit towards closing costs.  The ultimate win-win!

  Offer accepted!  Inspector Gadget came in and the inspection went well.  We were on our way to a smooth closing.  And then we hit a MAJOR hurdle.  I won’t go into detail, but the lender had a company wide issue, and wasn’t super transparent with us about it, and we almost didn’t close on time.  But the important word in that sentence is almost.  We did close on time!  Just 2 days before Christmas, and on the “meet-day anniversary” of these two newlyweds, they got the keys to their first home!!

Congrats Hannah and Tim and welcome to the family!   Since I know y’all like those GOOD bubbles, I’ll make sure to have you over next time I decide to crack open the nice bottle.
