Denny Blaine Real Estate: February Report

Seattle’s Denny Blaine real estate market was quiet in February. MLS data shows only one sale during the last winter month of 2016 as well as 2015. The two previous years were more active with four (2014), and four (2013) total February sales. Seattle’s low inventory and high prices seem to have buyers taking their time shopping these days.

Seattle Designer Gives Her Tudor a Makeover

When Seattle Designer Judy Tall finalized her divorce, she packed up her belongings in Mercer Island and began the move to her newly purchased Tudor in Denny Blaine. According to the Seattle Times, she fell in love with the neighborhood and her master bedroom with an abundance of natural light, but wasn’t 100% sold on the rest of the place. She waited a year before remodeling, and says that “you have to know how you live in a house, and what works and what doesn’t.”

Before Tall became an interior designer she was an acupuncturist, and tries to brings elements of healing into play with her design concepts. She told the Times that whether you’re moving into a new space, or someone recently moved out or in, there are several emotions that come into play when redesigning or remodeling your home. Tall said that a large portion of her clientele chooses to remodel because they’re going through a life transition, and that’s just what she was going through when she decided to redo her home in Denny Blaine. From her choice in tranquil paint colors, to the picture rail below the coved ceiling, Tall tried to make each and every room in the place more cozy and comfortable for her to live in. She believes that every change serves a purpose, and should bring great joy to a living space. For more information about her Tudor design, visit the Seattle Times.

Denny Blaine Home One of Seattle’s Top Real Estate Sales in 2012

Seattle WaterfrontPuget Sound Business Journal did an interesting article on Seattle’s Top Ten Residential Real Estate Sales in 2012.  The largest residential real estate sale was in Medina at over $15 million, but the second largest sale was a Denny Blaine waterfront home that sold for $9 million.  The Denny Blaine sale happened this past summer and was one of three waterfront homes that sold in Denny Blaine in a little over a month’s period.

Note:  I believe the difference in square footage and bathrooms between the two links above is one includes the beach house while the other only includes the main house.

Denny Blaine Home Sells for $9 Million in 3 Days

Seattle WaterfrontA Denny Blaine waterfront home just sold for $9 million after only being listed for 3 days.  The home, which has an undisclosed address, is over 8,000 square feet with 5 bedrooms and 7.25 baths.  The house sits on nearly an acre of land with 120 square feet of Lake Washington waterfront.  The Denny Blaine home was listed for $10.8 million.

This is the third Denny Blaine waterfront home to sell in just over a month which is a lot since only one sold in the previous year.  As I stated in the previous blog, Seattle waterfront homes are rare especially between Madison Park and Madrona Park.
