I have nothing negative to say! For once! I stopped by the McKean conversion in Queen Anne last night at 1404 Olympic Way West. Built in 1929, there are eight condos for 4 stories (read- ceilings and floors are the only shared walls). They have done a beautiful job of maintaining the integrity of the vintage building and all except for the first floor units have great Sound views.
Original refinished hardwoods, wood wrapped windows, crown molding, arched doorways, granite, stainless, new cabinetry, under cabinet lighting, original hex-tile bathroom floors, brick exterior, new electrical, plumbing and insulation, no detail was forgotten.
Pricing starts at $334,950 for the first floor units (smaller one being 583 sq ft) and ranges up to $464,950 for top floor at 762 sq ft. I am not entirely convinced they will get what they are looking for in price as that seems a little steep for a one plus den, but we'll see.
Countrywide is the preferred lender and they aren't offering any buyer bonuses as of yet. They are opening this weekend to the public.
