Seattle Waterfront Home Sales, September 2009

Here are last month's Seattle waterfront homes sold in the greater Seattle area:

On the North end of Medina, a 4 bed, 4.25 bath home was sold for around $3.3 million. Listed at nearly $4 million, this was a big discount for the buyer. The home is on almost half an acre, which is somewhat deceiving considering Medina's long, sloping, switchback driveways.

On Lake Sammamish in East Bellevue, a 4 bedroom waterfront house sold for $1.8 million. It's a newer home, built in 1995 with 3300 sq ft, a 4 car garage, and 3.5 baths. A nice dock and covered boat moorage highlight the waterfront footage.

In Renton's Kennydale neighborhood (just south of Bellevue), a 3300 sq ft waterfront home sold for $1.8 million. This was a mid-century home, 3300 sq ft with 4 bedrooms. With 55 feet of Lake washington waterfront footgage, it's a nice piece of real estate.

Across Lake Washington in Madison Park/Seattle, a similar-sized home on a small lot sold around $1.7 million. This is a 2600 sq ft home on 5700 sq ft of land. The lot has a nice dock and big decks to enjoy the water views.

In Kenmore, just North of St. Edward State Park, another Lake Washington waterfront home was sold for $1.5 million. This was a very large home at 6 beds, 4.5 baths, and 4500 square feet of living space. The mid-century home has a lot with no-bank, deep water moorage for a 45+ ft boat.

Back on Lake Sammamish, another Bellevue home sold at just under $1 million. This was a beach house and cottage, both sold on the same parcel. The 1960s home needs some updating, but the dock and boat lift are ready to go.

Houseboats!

We had a wide range between the two houseboats sold in September on Lake Union/Portage Bay. One sold for $50k, the other for $650k.

The Portage Bay floating home was a full-sized home with cathedral ceilings, etc. With no HOA dues, it's a beautiful waterfront home. The Lake Union/Canal/Queen Anne houseboat was a littlebungalow on the water. It's a "house barge", basically a floating cabin. At $50k, it's as cheap as you can find Seattle waterfront homes.
