Who Doesn’t Love A Loft? Well the Trace Lofts are waiting for you. The industrial feel and sheik design of The Trace Lofts make it one of those buildings that stay on the radar of most prospective Capitol Hill Buyers.
I know I have featured the Trace Lofts in the past but I can’t help showing off units in this stunning building as soon as I see them hit the market. This Capitol Hill pick of the week is brought to us by Diva pal, Blair Stacks of Coldwell Banker Bain. Located at 1408 12th Ave, Seattle WA. The building sits right at the corner of 12th and Madison and this lovely unit is ready for a tasteful buyer with class and style to snag it up.
Unit 211 is a can’t miss opportunity for a first time homebuyer looking to pay a small premium for the luxurious upgrades that you won’t find in your standard, entry level priced Capitol Hill condo. Sexy steel and exposed wooden beams accentuate the modern finishes of the cabinets and stainless appliances. The south facing wall is framed with exposed brick reminding you that this is not some new modern box, but refurbished art that is part of Seattle History.
The location of this building is hard to beat as The Trace Lofts are in a prime location to take advantage of all of the culture, food, and of course fun that Capitol Hill has to offer. Just a short little walk down the lane is The 12th Avenue Arts building which boasts two theaters featuring national and local talent in film and live production. It is also home to Three Dollar Bill Cinema, who provide access to GLBTQ Cinema from around the world. Across the street is Velocity Dance Center which not only offers live performance but has several classes that allow you to personally experience different types of dance. When you start to get those pangs of hunger in your stomach, many of my favorite Capitol Hill restaurants are within mere blocks of your front door. You want Mexican? Head down to Barrio. A trip to Italy on your mind?, La Spiga is across the street waiting to fill your pasta dreams. Japan is not too far either, Momiji is serving sushi and divine Japanese cuisine. We all know I love a good cocktail, and one of my favorite spirit houses is just downstairs. Check into Needle and Thread and have a personalized cocktail made catered to your dreams. You also have the fortune of being near Cannon. This whiskey and bitters emporium just north of Trace Lofts was ranked one of the best bars in the world by Esquire magazine. And for extraordinary wine tasting and tasty appetizers Poco Wine & Spirits will always have a special place in my heart, it’s located just around the corner.

$369,950 is practically a steal for this type of property in this central location, so it is definitely not going to last long. If you are interested in this unit or anything else on the hill give me a call and I will be happy to schedule some time to show you.
