Anthony’s Homeport Restaurants, three minutes away from Shilshole Marina and Yacht Club, and five minutes away from the glorious Golden Gardens Seaside Park. It has a view of the bay from most every room, with the living/dining/kitchen and both bedrooms looking straight out at the water. What is so great, it is right across from a city park so there is nothing more “protected” than this view, where nothing will be built between you and the water in future. (There is one gracious residence on the other side near the water, but I thought it just added to the glory of the neighborhood, and you see lots of water).
The condo is two bedrooms (plus den alcove) and 2.5 baths (a powder room off the hallway and each bedroom has a beautiful en-suite bathroom). It is on the top (3rd) floor of a charming 10 unit boutique condominium building, and it’s location on the south end of the building gives you extra window, light, and views on the south side. It’s 1,217 square feet, has one large parking space in the common garage and a storage unit. (There’s also no lack of street parking.) The building has an elevator and there are great water views, no restrictions on pets (luckily because
Seaview Ave is dog walking heaven, so many pets with their owners went by while I was there). The heat is high efficiency radiant (built in 2007 the building exceeds even modern standards for well built). The cooktop and oven are gas. There is a nice stacked (but not mini) washer and dryer in the unit which stays.
As you’ll see from the photos, the vaulted ceilings and high windows makes it an exciting space, light-filled and potent with dreams and possibilities for your life. (You know, they say high-ceilinged spaces lead to more abstract thinking, whereas lower ceilings lead to more concrete thinking for the inhabitants!)
Another thing that made it stand out for me was the wonderful second floor rooftop garden which is shared. There is so much attention and love being poured into the plantings, lovely gracious place to go read or be with guests, and a large gas grill for when you wish to barbeque! The HOA dues are $458 which represents your garbage, water and sewer paid by the HOA plus a good amount, the listing agent tells me, is being put away for any future necessaries. There is a train track nearby, but this is the Ballard Railroad that normally passes by about once a week, and more in summer but just one Engine with a car to drop off for the fishermen. There is a description of the train and how it affects life there written by one of the residents, should you be interested tell me and I’ll send it to you.
Any questions, just email me at email@example.com or give me a call, I would be happy to get you any information or to take you to see this very special Ballard luxury condo! (Oh, did I mention it has come down from $615,000 and now is listed at $549,950?)
