In-City Living: Belltown Spotlight

By RSIR Staff |

Step into an historic opportunity at the Austin Bell Building in Belltown, one of Seattle’s most eclectic and fun locales. The ultimate location offers stellar west-facing views of Elliott Bay with a killer Walk Score of 95, putting the city at your fingertips.

It isn’t often that the chance to live in a piece of history arises. Established as the Austin A. Bell hotel in 1889, the building was remodeled in 1990 and now serves as a 49-unit condominium building bearing the original brick and terra cotta façade.

Begin each day by crafting a perfect cup of coffee at home as you prepare to join the waking city or head downstairs to Starbucks for a local brew. In the mood for something more substantial? A few minutes’ walk brings you to Cyclops for an unforgettable brunch or La Parisienne, where you’ll have your pick from delectable croissants and other pastries.

When the day beckons for a more intimate atmosphere, enjoy a relaxing morning within the comfy confines of the private master bedroom or catch up on emails in your dedicated den space. Daily living is a breeze with thoughtful appointments and updates including a remodeled bath with marble countertops and floor, two large walk-in closets with customized storage, and a separate laundry room with built-in storage.

You’ll love entertaining at home. The floor-to-ceiling windows allow natural light to flood in and offer breathtaking views of boats and ferries passing through the bay. Gaze upon this while cooking from your large kitchen island as guests leisurely enjoy themselves in the open layout.

A Fall weekend in Seattle comes to life with a trip to the Olympic Sculpture Park, as monumental art mingles with nature’s show of autumnal beauty. Next, stroll up to Bell Street Park to see what’s happening as you move in and out of local boutique shops. After you’ve worked up an appetite, pop into Tavolàta for a bowl of hand-crafted pasta or check out List, which features a range of dining options and all-day happy hour on Sundays and Mondays.

Head out for a night on the town and take in Belltown’s dynamic nightlife scene. Grab a beer and bite at Belltown Pub or liven things up with a margarita at Mama’s Cantina before bar hopping your way down Third Avenue.

Whether you’ve spent the day hard at work in the office or simply enjoyed yourself, end each day in an impeccable in-city perch with the knowledge that tomorrow will present you with another Belltown adventure.
