This is your source for Seattle lofts for sale. All lofts are downtown Seattle and actually south Seattle rather than North. Most northern properties are townhouses and condos. Lofts are usually built from past industrial buildings then converted to condos. Lofts are popular with artist and people looking for live and work space combined. They generally have high ceiling, are historical, and have very open spaces. Some areas of Seattle that are popular for lofts for sale are Pioneer Square, Belltown, Eastlake, Queen Anne, Capitol Hill, Sodo, & Fremont.
Seattle is not really one of the cities that have a lot of loft options. Typically, when a true "loft" comes on the market it doesn't last long. The loft look of movies from heiress passages Flashdance where the loft takes up the entire floor of some industrial old warehouse is really the true loft design the people desire, but today, lofts can come in a variety of different sizes, shapes and of course, price ranges.
A loft is technically an open space that doesn't have a lot of close doors except for maybe the bathroom and in some cases the bedroom. It usually has high ceilings, perhaps some industrial materials such as exposed ductwork or rough brick walls and it may even have multilevel living such as a small staircase up to the loft bedroom for instance. Lofts have usually been converted from an older building either an historical home or large older warehouse.
For the Seattle area there are not a lot of buildings that have been converted into loft except for maybe the historic Austin A Bell building located on 1st Avenue in Belltown. This has several loft style units starting at about $400,000. In other areas such as SoDo, which already has a lot of industrial buildings, you might find some great loft style units. However, very few searches for homes in the Seattle area give the option for a loft so this is where it pays to have a real estate agent that not only knows the individual neighborhood surrounding Seattle but the buildings as well. Feel free to contact me with your exact specifics and price range and I can send you a customized list of homes that would meet your search criteria and price.
