Luminous Modern Penthouse

$1,138,000 501 E Roy St, Unit M312, Seattle, WA 98109

We listed this corner penthouse for $1,050,000 and sold it with multiple offers for $1,138,000.

Marketing Remarks

They say the building's architect designed this luminous corner penthouse for himself...but never moved in. Instead the current owners did, and it hasn't seen the open market since. Until now.

So step into the light. Relish expansive volumes punctuated by an eclectic collection of windows, capped (distantly) by twelve-foot-high exposed concrete ceilings. The clever floor plan balances well-separated private spaces with a chic, airy great room just begging for cocktail parties against a backdrop of city lights.

At the heart of the action is a sleek kitchen big enough for serious entertaining. A full complement of Miele appliances supply the horsepower.

The master suite is right where you want it--deep into the home, at the furthest point from the entry. And with three distinct zones, the master bath is really a suite of its own.

Frosted glass panels open a large second bedroom to the loft-like main living space, making this just as easily your second lounge, second office, or anything else your creative life requires. (We've got you covered with the first office--there's a den for that).

The bathrooms pamper with heated floors and separate soaking tubs. Two terraces offer outdoor options. In fact, you've got two of everything--two bedrooms, two baths, two tubs, two showers, two terraces, two parking spots...


The Building

Lumen is unique within the Seattle condo scene. Indoors and out, discover a sophisticated level of attention to line, form, composition and detail we rarely see in low-rise buildings, the result of a fertile collaboration between Hewitt Architects and Garrett Cord Werner interior design.

Amenities include a concierge, on-site facilities manager, guest suite for your out-of-town visitors, the Lumen Lounge with full kitchen, indoor & outdoor dining, the Sky Bar with billiards and mini-media lounge, a cushy cinema room, outdoor fire pit area and grilling & al fresco dining area. There's even a car wash bay in the secure owners' garage.


The Neighborhood

Slip outside and the location is everything. Feast on all the walkable cultural and culinary vibrancy of Lower Queen Anne, South Lake Union, Belltown and Downtown...not to mention two waterfronts (saltwater and fresh, thank you).

And when your batteries run down, retreat back home to your own modernist refuge. It's a sweet life.
