The Penthouse- ESCALA Seattle

The Penthouse- ESCALA Seattle, originally uploaded by choiyeewong.
This penthouse is a unique Seattle home for sale at the Escala. The Escala at 5th and Madison is unique in that all of the units, except the three penthouses, are one-bedroom or one-bedroom + den layouts, ranging in size from 808 to 1,244 square feet. The two- and three-bedroom penthouses range from 1,957 to 2,164 square feet in size.

With the exception of the 2nd and penthouse levels (24th floor), each floor accommodates only 6 units, all facing North, West or East. Units on the upper-levels, particularly the “00″ and “01″ stacks on the West side offer spectacular city and Elliott Bay views and have abundant light. Residents will need to be higher than the 12th level to over look the library on the North side.

Amenities include a restaurant on the lower level, resident fitness center, activities/club room, guest suite, dog run and landscaped walking paths with a water channel. Homeowner dues run $.55/sq ft, on par with other higher-end projects and it does include central air and heat, hot water and gas for cooking. 5th and Madison is striving for LEED-Gold certification.

Interior features include upscale finishes, Bosch & Amana appliances (Sub Zero standard for homes on the 20th level and above), Lutron shades, 10.5′ ceiling height and kitchen islands as standard.

The project will appeal to true urbanites who have a penchant for in-city living and love Seattle real estate. Living at 5th and Madison will provide a different experience with fewer residential amenities compared to Belltown or the Market district, so buyers should keep this in mind.
