Seattle Maple Leaf Condo:
Spotless, Secure Urban Sanctuary – Sold
Seattle Maple Leaf condo: make the move into this immaculately kept, top-floor, two-bed, two-bath urban sanctuary. Feel safe in a secured parking garage where safety is maintained with video cameras and individually assigned fobs. You will have two assigned spaces. The elevator at the parking level can only be activated with a key. Visitor and delivery services access the building lobby and elevator via a number keypad and intercom system. Mail is delivered to the lobby area for your pickup.
The elevator takes you to the top floor. When you unlock your door you also unlock your own world. Close to the lively busyness that makes urban living so desirable you enjoy the quietude of your fourth story haven. “Move-in-ready” sometimes means that no major repairs are needed. In this case, it means that you can prepare a sandwich on the spotless Corian kitchen counter.
Hardwood flooring is underfoot in the entryway and kitchen. Everything is light and airy in this eastward facing condo. The balcony overlooks the terraced courtyard. One of the two storage units is off the balcony, the other on the same floor down the hall. Space is used efficiently, belying the actual square footage of this Seattle Maple Leaf condo.
The galley-style kitchen with its own small eating space is open to the dining area and beyond the living room. The energy source is electricity augmented with a woodburning fireplace. Washer, dryer and water heater share a large hallway closet with levels of efficient shelving.
Down the hall, past a full-size bathroom and the second bedroom lies the master bedroom with its own full bath and walk-in closet. Wherever you look you see carefully chosen materials and fixtures. Pending your ambitions and aspirations, the second bedroom can serve as a home office, a nursery or an exercise room.

Seattle’s Maple Leaf Neighborhood and Beyond
According to the Free Online Encyclopedia of Washington State History, until 1954 the Seattle City limits stopped at N 85th Street. Today, the Maple Leaf neighborhood is one of the most desirable close-in neighborhoods of Seattle. Beginning in 2021, Maple Leaf residents will be even better connected to UW and downtown Seattle. That’s thanks to the Light Rail system which will stop at the Maple Leaf Portal located at the intersection of 1st Avenue NE and NE 95th Street. This will add yet another option for commuters who are already well served by the Northgate Transit Park & Ride.
Nearby Northgate Mall was built in 1950 as the nation’s first regional shopping center designed as a mall. New parking capacity has been added for shoppers of Nordstrom and the other 150 retail stores.
Southeast of this Seattle Maple Leaf condo on Roosevelt Avenue is a huge neighborhood park that was created in 2012 when the Maple Leaf water reservoir went underground.
To the south, is the Green Lake neighborhood with a 259-acre lake and park with the same name. A new PCC market, small shops, ethnic food eateries, fitness and dance studios attract the locals and curious from afar. My favorite is Mykonos, a small Greek restaurant near the entrance to the park.
According to the Seattle School District’s school finder, the public schools associated with this Seattle Maple Leaf condo are Olympic View Elementary, Eckstein Middle School, and Nathan Hale High School. One of the private schools in the area is the St. Catherine of Siena School at 8542 8th Ave NE.
